Meet Frodo

If you would like to visit one our amazing pups, please review the policies below, complete an online application and give us call if you have any questions prior to coming by. 970 626 2273

Frodo is now in foster care but is still adoptable and hoping to meet his forever family soon.

Frodo is a sweet mini Australian Shepherd that was recently rescued from a puppy mill. Frodo is very shy but when around other dogs is learning to open up and be a happy friend. Frodo is learning how to accept love from humans and to walk on a leash, but he still has a ways to go. He is learning that he likes being at his human friends' feet and follow us around. He still prefers attention on his own terms (we allow him to come to us when he wants and is comfortable), but is gaining good ground in his emotional healing.

Frodo will REQUIRE a very secure fenced in yard and another well-adjusted dog to be his mentor. He may require a few visits to give him time to get to know you prior to adoption.

Adopters will be considered on the totality of the application and how it matches the particular pet's needs.
We often adopt same day as the first visit an interview but it is not guaranteed. Some dogs will take multiple visits and adopters are approved based on the best fit for the particular animal being considered. We do not hold pets during the process.

Most dogs who come from the shelter will not be house trained.

We do not know or make guarantees that a dog or cat will do well with all children, other animals or is house-trained.

It is important everyone, especially all of the adults in the home, meet the potential new pet. Please also bring photo identification if you plan to adopt.

We also require that any family dogs come into meet your potential adoptee. Please be sure your dogs are spayed or neutered and current on vaccines (distemper - parvo and rabies) before bringing them to the shelter.

All dogs must be transported home in a travel crate to transport your new pup home safely.

Renters must provide a copy of a lease indicating pets are allowed or contact information for the landlord.

If you are interested in meeting or adopting one of our pets or have questions about the process please see our website at or call the Shelter between 11:00 am and 5:45 pm Tuesday through Saturday. 970 626 2273
