Wag of the Week


Last updated 12/8/2021 at 9:35am | View PDF


This beautiful lady is Sophie. She was found wandering in Lamar and was taken in by good Samaritans who tried to find her owners but could not. She has a gentle personality that is typical of Great Pyrenees. We're not sure what breed she's mixed with. She walks gently on a leash and warms up to new people quickly. She appears to be about 2-3 years old. Note: this is Sophie pre-bath – she's going to be even more stunning after she's got her beauty treatment, but of course, that's just the surface awesomeness.

Several young puppies were brought in recently and will need extra care.

My boss extraordinaire, Cathy Blake, also returned from Lamar with not one, but two litters of puppies. All eight need foster homes, and, hopefully, adoptions; they are 6 weeks old. One litter is chi/terrier, the other is unknown, probably lab. The chi-terrier mama is also available; she's about 5 years old.

Hopefully, holiday spirit is upon us. We'd appreciate any kind of donations: food, supplies, toys, crates, financial contributions. Since it's the season of gifting – a great gift to the rescue would also be spreading the word about AARF's available dogs and puppies. This is such a multi-faceted gift: to us, to a dog, to others, even to yourself, for that feel-good sensation of helping a needy sentient being.

We hold adoption fairs at Petsmart on Powers Saturdays 11-2: 2965 N New Center Pt., Colorado Springs, CO 80922. More info: Julie at 375-1200 or Cathy at 761-5320. Email: [email protected] or [email protected] Facebook: AARF Colorado; website:
