Dobby, chihuahua mix
Dobby is a male chihuahua mix being cared for at Animal Rescue of the Rockies.
Dobby is friendly as can be — he's happy to keep company with other dogs. Good news: He's already house-trained and neutered, and he has had all his shots.
Notes from Dobby's caretakers:
Taffy is a toned and a trim 10 pounds. He is brimful of love once he warms up to new people. Always within easy eyeshot of his fosters, he's using his furry foster brother as an example of how good trust can feel. Quiet, well mannered and calm, he balances his time between viewing the household activities and heading outdoors to explore the backyard. At night he likes snuggling awhile on the sofa before curling up to sleep in his own doggy bed.

Dasuki is a male Akita being cared for at Blue Moon Akita Rescue.
Dasuki's ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. Fear not: He's already house-trained and vaccinated.
From Dasuki's current caretaker:
Dakusi is 2.5 years old. He is a sweet dog, eager to please and very food motivated. Dasuki is a really easygoing guy once you have gained his trust. He is a great listener and easily trained. He would be a great running/hiking partner as he never pulls on lead, stops when you stop, turns when you turn and goes when you go. He is protective by nature and very alert and attentive.

Bishop is a handsome male Akita currently residing at Blue Moon Akita Rescue.
Bishop's ideal forever home would be home free of other pets. He has mastered his house-training etiquette, his vaccinations are up to date, and he is neutered.
Here's what Bishop's friends at Blue Moon Akita Rescue think of him:
Bishop is 3 years old. He does question all authority, part of the reason he is here at the rescue. But he is highly trainable and a people pleaser once he trusts you. So, he will need someone who he respects and who loves him, and who he can love back. He seems to prefer females slightly more than men, but not a deal-breaker.
