Neo, American bulldog mix

Neo is an endearing male American bulldog mix currently residing at PawsCo.

Neo loves socializing with other dogs. Good news: He's already house-trained, neutered and vaccinated.

Here's what Neo has to say for himself:

Looking for the perfect buddy? You’ve found him! My name is Neo, and I’ve been told I’m the package deal. I don’t mean to talk myself up, I’m just confident that I would be a great fit with almost any family! I’m outgoing and playful, but definitely don’t mind spending a Sunday in bed watching Netflix. When I’m not out exploring Colorado, I’m content to chill at home. I’m the perfect mix of mellow inside and playful outside.

Julies, chihuahua mix

Julies is a precious female chihuahua mix in the care of Planet Pet.

Julies gets along great with other dogs. Her vaccinations are already up to date, she's spayed and she has mastered her house-training etiquette.

Notes from Julies' caretakers:

Julies is a sweet yet timid girl who would love a home to call her own! She is a little timid and shy when meeting new people, but comes around quickly. She is four years old, and weighs about eight pounds. She is one of our flight risk pups, which simply means that, when spooked, she has a tendency to run. So, she will need a secure yard, or need to be on a leash or harness before any doors open in an apartment. Once she's comfortable, she is a big lover and loves to play!

Here's what Rook's friends at Red Fern Animal Rescue think of her:

Meet Rook! She’s an active and energetic three-year old, 45-pound female that loves all people, including kids! She is strong, incredibly playful and very energetic, but also sweet! Rook needs to find a family willing to give her an active Colorado lifestyle with daily exercise, hiking or running. She’s a smart cookie, and needs to be challenged. She would be easy to train!

From Scout's current caretaker:

Meet Scout! She is a female beagle mix that is four years old and weighs 25 pounds. She needs a house with a yard, due to her shy nature. She is bright, and is looking for a family with patience and willingness to train her, continue to socialize her and take her on daily walks or hikes.

Graham, blue lacy mix

Graham is a handsome male blue lacy mix being kept at Red Fern Animal Rescue.

Meet Graham:

Graham is a two-year-old blue lacy mix and weighs 50 pounds. He is an active, playful pup who is looking for someone to play hard with him and teach him manners, since he loves to talk to anyone and anything! He would enjoy an active lifestyle with lots of playful interaction, daily walks, running and even hikes. He’s looking for a family with a yard, and will not do well in an apartment.

Ruckus, husky mix

Ruckus is a majestic male husky mix currently residing at PawsCo.

Ruckus is well-behaved around other dogs, and doesn't mind kids. However, his ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. No need for concern: He is already neutered, house-trained and vaccinated.

A bit more on Ruckus:

Hey there. The name’s Ruckus, and I admit that sometimes I do live up to that name. But, it’s totally worth it, because I’m so loving and sweet, not to mention kind of a looker, if I say so myself. I have a lot of energy, and I’d love a family who will take me on jogs, hikes, playdates — I like it all! I also love car rides, going on fun adventures and snuggling. I'll put my paw on you when I want some love, and stare up at you with my dreamy eyes. Yeah, I am pretty dang cute. Really, I just like to be where my people are, and will even try to stick my head under the door when they are in the bathroom. I just like to make sure they’re okay! It is incredibly important that I find a home where my family is home the majority of the time, and can potentially take me along anywhere they go. Because I’ve had a lot of inconsistencies in my life and because my breed is already really prone to anxiety being left alone, I do not like being by myself. I’m truly such a special guy and have so much love to give! Are you that amazing family who is looking for a shadow? A companion always by your side?
