Lucky is a 6-7MO Shepherd pup weighing about 20-25lbs.  Lucky and his sister, Nola were living outside in Texas, pretty neglected, not knowing what life has to offer.  The ACO in their town checked in on them and they were immediately willing to surrender them to the city.  The city then reached out to us asking if we could take them and find them loving homes, since dogs rarely make it out alive from that shelter.  We were told they were sweet, loving, and just young pups.  They so deserved a second chance at a great life. Lucky has now been in foster care in CO for a few weeks and is ready to find his forever home!  Here is what his foster dad has to say about him: "Lucky is extremely loving and playful, and ready to go on his next adventure.  He has great, happy energy, but also loves to take him midday naps.  He is such a sweet puppy who is always curious to explore and loves to hang out with everybody.  He does well with other dogs and all people and is doing great with leash training and potty training.  This dog deserves the best home and it'll be hard to say goodbye, but I know his forever family is out there and will spoil him rotten."

Ollie is a 5-6 year old Pitbull. Ollie was dumped at a shelter in Kansas in 2018 with a huge gash on his head.  He ended up needing stitches and medical attention for a few days, and went to a foster home in Kansas.  He was incredibly unsocialized, but was in the Kansas foster home for a couple months, where he learned about being a family dog.  He got along great with the kids in the family and the 3 other dogs in the home.  He was eventually transferred to CO to find his forever home since they do not have many adopters in the rural area where he was. He was adopted by his foster home here in CO because they loved him so much.  He was great with everybody, and the other dogs in the home.  After being in his forever home for 2 years they surrendered him back to us because he was having trouble getting along with one of the dogs in his forever home.  Ollie went to our board and train program to build his confidence and to become a well rounded, awesome, trained dog.  We know the stigma around bully-breeds and we wanted to make sure Ollie was as well rounded as possible so we could set him up with his best chance of success. The trainer believes Ollie is ready to find his forever home!  While he has and can continue to get along with other dogs, we are going to adopt him to a family without another dog so he has the best chance of sucess.  That does not mean he cannot go to a park, go to play groups, and get along with other dogs, we just think in his forever home it will be best if they don't have another dog.  Ollie has learned so much in his training and will make the perfect companion for someone who wants a well trained dog, but is also willing to continue the training.  The board and train program has worked really hard to get Ollie where he is and they are offering support for his forever family, along with requiring they do their training classes, for FREE.  So his family gets to learn how to continue to keep Ollie a confident awesome dog for free.  This is a GREAT deal!   Ollie walks great on a leash, doesn't pull.  He is potty trained, loves to snuggle, play, and hang out.  He would be great for someone who wants a best friends and adventure buddy.  He has learned how to comminucate with humans in a way most dogs don't know so he is incredibly good and obedient.  He is just an AWESOME dog!

Sadie is a 6 year old Australian Cattle dog mix.  Right now, Sadie weighs 69lbs, when she came to us she weighed 76lbs, and she would probably be a healthy weight around 55-60lbs (maybe even 50).  Sadie's story is a sad one, but we are determined it will have the happiest of endings.  Sadie continued to show up at a strangers home in New Mexico.  The first 3 times the lady called the owners on the tag to let them know their dog had showed up again.  All 3 times the acted like they couldn't care less and she was just a bother.  She lived outside and there was a huge hole in their fence they did not care to fix.  She was just left outside with a huge bucket of food and water and never any attention (Hence her weight).  The 4th time Sadie showed up at this womans house she decided to keep Sadie and see if they would come looking for her, after 3 weeks they never did.  She finally contacted them and said "Hey I have had your dog for 3 weeks now, can I just keep her?"  Not caring they surrendered her over.  At this point Sadie had a huge wound in her leg that was down to the bone.  It was infested with maggots and there was even question of her losing her leg.  Our vet partners in New Mexico were quickly contacted and they took her to the vet right away where she spent a few weeks. She was on a constant antibiotic drip and wound care. Fast forward almost 2 months and Sadie is a completely different dog.  Her leg is better (still a little scab but no concerns anymore) and she is finally getting the love and care she deserves.  With the weight loss and care Sadie has pep in her step.  She loves to go for walks with her foster mom, romp around/hang out in the back yard, but more than anything she loves affection and love.  She just wants a human of her own.  Someone who she can spend her days with, snuggle with, and do life with.  She has lived most her life watching her humans live their life from the outside and now it's her turn to live the good life.  Sadie gets along perfectly with everybody and everything.  She is truly just the sweetest dog.  The only requirements we have is that her forever family will love her unconditionally, and they will help her continue to lose the remaining weight so she can be more happy, active, and comfortable.

Stella is a young adult Shepherd mix weighing about 40lbs, who was found roaming the streets with many other dogs in Texas.  Since we don't know Stella's history, we do not know her exact age, but we are guessing between 2-4 years old. Stella came to CO because she found roaming, and was very visibly pregnant.  She didn't have a safe place to have her puppies and we knew the cycle would just continue (if they survived) if Stella was left on the streets to give birth and take care of her puppies.  We ended up getting her here to CO just in time.  Within a couple days she gave birth to 11 puppies...YES 11!!! We were so lucky to have her because with that many puppies she would not have been able to supoprt them all.  Her wonderful foster Momma bottle fed the babies daily to give mom a break and to make sure the pups were getting enough. Fast forward 10 weeks and Momma Stella's pups have all found their forever homes and now it's her turn to be spoiled, loved, and well taken care of.  Stella's foster Momma has nothing but great things to say about her.  She says Stella is super sweet and doesn't have a care in the world.  She seems to be totally house broken.  She walks well on a leash too.  She is a little unsure of men at first but does warm up pretty quickly.  She loves females and all people once she gets to know them!  Stella loves to play with other dogs.  She does find cats interesting but gets over them pretty quickly.  Stella would love an active person and would love to go on adventures and see all Colorado has to offer.  She is a great girl and if her foster Momma was looking to adopt another dog, she says Stella would be that dog!
