Ducky, Rhodesian ridgeback and Labrador retriever mix
Ducky is an adorable male Rhodesian ridgeback and Labrador retriever mix being kept at PawsCo.
His ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. He's already neutered, and he has had all his shots. He has mastered his house-training etiquette.
From Ducky's current caretaker:
I’m an active pup ready to live the Colorado life. I love cuddles and kisses and long walks at sunset. I'm also smart, sweet and a great listener. If someone says “get your toy,” you better believe it’s on! I can be uncomfortable around other dogs when I first meet them, so I’d do best as the only dog in the home for now. If you're looking for a cuddle bug, I'm the companion for you!

From Nyx's current caretaker:
I'm 4 years old and weigh 46 pounds. I may be approaching middle age, but I’ve got my puppy spirit fully intact. I go for the occasional tug-o-war or ball game, but I really love snuggling up on the sofa. I use a doggy door, share snacks and don’t chew on other people's stuff. Sometimes, I forget my manners, but I love human guidance. If you’re the one to polish my rough edges, email my friends at PawsCo.

Taz, Doberman pinscher
Taz is a handsome male Doberman pinscher dog being kept at Saving Dobermankind Animal Rescue.
His ideal forever home would be a cat-free environment. He's already been neutered.
Taz's current caretakers say:
Nearly a year old, this active pup needs an active family. Tax was an owner surrender, and we are learning more about him each day. While he's making great progress on obedience training, he's a strong boy and needs someone that can continue to work with him. He gets along with other dogs and kids. You won't meet a better dog if you love to hike and run!

Rocket, Doberman pinscher
Rocket is a handsome male Doberman pinscher dog currently residing at Saving Dobermankind Animal Rescue.
He is looking for cat-free forever home. He's already been neutered.
Here's what Rocket's friends at Saving Dobermankind Animal Rescue think of him:
This redhead will definitely win your heart! He's a two-year-old Doberman that loves to go for walks, run around in the yard and play with other dogs. He likes people once he gets to know them, and he's kid-friendly too. He ended up at our shelter, because farm life wasn't for him. For this reason, we think he's better suited to being a family pet.
