Sammy, chihuahua and Italian greyhound mix
Sammy is a precious male chihuahua and Italian greyhound mix staying at PawsCo.
Sammy gets along great with other dogs. PawsCo, however, wants to place him in a home without small children. Don't worry: He's already vaccinated, house-trained and neutered.
Here's what Sammy has to say for himself:
Hey everyone, I’m Sammy, here to cuddle my way into your heart, your lap and your life! I am a happy, mellow little lap dog who is happy to curl up with my person. I love to be pet, and will even stretch out my legs to let you know I’d like a good snuggle. I really love other dogs, so I’d prefer a home where I have another friendly dog as a sibling. I am pretty shy at first, so I’ll need proper time and introductions in any new home. But, once I’m comfy and settled, I’m just happy as a clam. I can’t wait to find a forever family to give all my love and affection. I am just ready to be loved!

Ducky, Rhodesian ridgeback and Labrador retriever mix
Ducky is an endearing male Rhodesian ridgeback and Labrador retriever mix in the care of PawsCo.
Ducky's ideal forever home would be a dog-free environment. Have no fear: He's already house-trained, vaccinated and neutered.
A bit more on Ducky:
Hello there! I’m Ducky. I’m cute, sweet and a great listener. I love long walks at sunset, quality time, cuddles and kisses. I’m an active pup ready to live the Colorado life. Basically, I’m the whole package. My foster mom says I’m a silly goose, but they call me Ducky. How does that make sense? One of my goofy moves is snuggling up on her lap for a nap. I might not fit, but inside I feel like I’m that small. I’m also so smart! I love a tough toy, like a rope to sink my teeth into, and playing in the yard is the best. I need a home that is patient, loving and active. Are you looking for a cuddle bug?
