This week we feature a number of dogs being housed at Tumbleweed Country Kennels, some of which were strays at Fort Carson. You can reach Tumbleweed at 719-382-1126 to arrange a visit any day of the week for a meet-and-greet with the dogs.

Here is the scoop on these sweet pups from the folks at Tumbleweed:

We have some great pups here at Tumbleweed looking for forever homes. All dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped, and spayed/neutered.

Bubba is a 2-year-old Boxer; he's a handsome boy! He's good natured and friendly, we believe he is around 2-3 years old. He came in as a stray, so we do not have a lot of other information about him. He will be your best buddy if you just give him the chance.

Julie (one blue eye) is a beautiful 3-year-old Husky-Australian Shepherd mix. She loves to run and play, and we just love her eyes. She will need a home with someone that has the time to dedicate to her.

Cheesecake (Husky) is a fun-loving girl who loves attention and gets along with other dogs. We believe she is 3 1/2 years old; her parents were getting a divorce, so they gave her up. She is looking for a stable home with lots of love and attention.

Juice (Rhodesian Ridgeback mix) is an active boy who loves to run and make new friends with the other dogs. He's a little over a year old and looking for someone to hit the trails with and explore.

Toby (Shar Pei/ Lab mix) is a happy 6-year-old who loves his toys, running around in the play yard. He's still got a lot of life in him and is looking for the perfect home with plenty of room to roam, play with his toys and relax. A calmer home would be great for Toby; he would love to just hang out by your side and be your companion.

Coco (Mastiff mix) is a sweet girl and will be your best friend once she gets to know you; she came in with her husky brother when their parents got divorced. We think she is around 4 years old. She loves playtimes in the yard and lots of belly rubs.

Ranger (German Shepherd/Lab mix) is just under a year old. When he came to us, he was very skinny and scared. He has since put on some weight and is a happy boy who loves to run and play. He got the best of the two breeds. Looking for a home that will provide stability in his life and have the time to spend with him.

Cookie (Jack Russell Terrier/Staffordshire Terrier) is such a happy smiley girl that will put a smile on your face when she enters the room. She is full of wiggles and loves to play. She gets along with other dogs and would love to have a forever family that has the time to play with her. We believe she is around 2 years old.

Sven (Black Terrier mix) is a happy-go-lucky little guy; he's just under a year old. He likes other dogs, loves to play and get all of the pets you have to offer. He will brighten your day with his charming personality!
