Interested in adopting a pet — or just taking a peek at some lovable pups? There are heaps of great dogs up for adoption at animal shelters in and around Aurora.

Smoke, pit bull terrier mix
Smoke is a handsome male pit bull terrier mix staying at Animal Rescue of the Rockies.
Smoke is well-behaved around other dogs and children. Don't worry: He has already been house-trained, vaccinated and neutered.
Notes from Smoke's caretakers:
Sweet, gentle and social Smoke is happiest being where his fosters are, following after them to ensure that he's not missing one moment of the pets and cuddles he craves. He also loves running round the backyard of his foster home. Quiet and loving, he's honing his manners, and knows to sit and wait before the all right command releases him to eat. Now, this paw-fect companion is on the hunt for the paw-fect home, perhaps with another playful dog, and attentive adopters to complete his education while ensuring he's well-loved and well-exercised, always.
