Lupita & Suzie


Two wonderful dogs looking for their perfect home- with no cats!

Lupita and Suzie would love to find a home where they can play and snuggle for as long as you’ll let them, and then they are content to snuggle with each other.
Lupita (Pita) is a 4 year old heeler mix from a new Mexico reservation. She was transported here and spent a few months unsuccessfully in a shelter before going into a foster home where she began to blossom. We adopted her in June 2021 and she immediately began opening up. She is so very cuddly and playful, although she is still leery of strangers until she has a chance to know they are safe, then she thoroughly enjoys their company. She does not do well with children as they frighten her, and wouldn’t be good fit for a chaotic family dynamic. She enjoys playing in the backyard with Suzie and they will run laps and laps until they are ready for a nap! She is good on a leash with reminders not to pull, and her recall is dependent on her mood, so we keep her on leash except for when playing in the backyard/kennel areas. She will sit and wait for her food and knows “go lie down”
Suzie is a 3 year old heeler who was dropped off on our property in June of 2022 and is the epitome of love. She loves people and it doesn’t matter if they are young, old, disabled, or silly. She loves them all, so much so that she does need to be reminded to keep all 4 paws on the floor. If you have a lap to spare, she is ready to warm it up. She is your willing adventure pup and will do anything if it involves you. She will sit, lie down, “go lie down” (she goes to her bed), and she has a cue for jumping in your arms.
These girls are well loved and ideally looking for a new home together, although they could be separated. Pita needs a quieter environment where her person can give her the attention she adores and she will repay you in equal love. Suzy is happy with your love, their love, anyone’s love! She just loves.
Unfortunately we can not keep them and they are 100% not okay with any cats, or likely any small animals.

Family looking for a new home for our 7 year shepherd mix, Ziji. We have a 4 1/2 year old and a 6 month old and since having the second baby, we have come to the difficult decision that Ziji is not able to be with a family with small children. Ziji is athletic and loves to run, loyal and always by your side, and very smart. She can exhibit fear aggression behavior towards other dogs and sometimes people, so she needs a home with someone who is willing to give her plenty of exercise and positive reinforcement for these behaviors. Ziji has been with us since she was a small puppy, adopted from the shelter. She is a great companion but we do not feel that she is ready for another baby and toddler to be as this causes her too much stress and makes us feel concerned. If you would like more information, please contact Rebecca Schild at 303-810-4230.

I first saw Choco, with two of his littermates, about five months old, in the yard of a friend’s neighbor in Glenwood Springs, early in 2020. It was evident that all three were not doing well and their owner readily gave them up to me. Shortly afterwards, as the pandemic lockdown was beginning, the three puppies, my other dog, my cat, and I moved to a small town on the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico where we enjoyed an outdoor, off-leash life until nearly the present day.

Choco, like his siblings, is now a healthy, well-adjusted adult…neutered, current on vaccinations, and taking a parasite prophylactic monthly. At 42 pounds, he resembles a Belgian Shepherd. He is a happy and playful spirit, socialized to people and other dogs, and at least one cat, with whom he lived for about two years.  For most of our time in Baja, we walked, ran, and/or cycled on- and off-leash in the morning, afternoon, and evening, often for distances approaching, sometimes exceeding, five miles a day. He would be happiest in a home where he could join others in the household on walks, runs, and bike rides.

While all my dogs are affectionate, Choco leads the pack. He stays closest to me by day, frequently checking in, and sleeps closest to me by night. My days begin with a face lick. He also has a competitive nature, usually the one to return with the ball when we play fetch. If that’s at the beach, while the others are sizing up the waves and thinking, “Umm, I dunnoooooo,” he’s already crashed through them chest first and is nearly to the ball.

Finding a place to rent with five pets was difficult in Mexico. It’s impossible in Denver. It was my intent to offer Choco and his two siblings for adoption once they got on their feet and we returned to Colorado, which we are now doing. Placing the three in permanent homes there will be both joyous and heartbreaking for all of us. I’ve learned that that is the nature of successful fostering.
