Meet Lefty

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

Adopters will be considered on the totality of the application and how it matches the particular pet's needs.

Lefty is a wonderful companion for someone who knows and understands the breed. He has a great recall and loves to take walks. He has a loud nervous bark when he is scared - for example when startled and approached by strangers, but is becoming more confident everyday. He will thrive in a home with a dog f similar age and temperament.

Lefty is really just a happy and goofy guy who wants to play half the day and snuggle on the couch the rest of the day. He requires at least two good hugs a day.

He is an energetic boy who loves to play with other dogs and will need a playmate in the home of similar energy.

Lefty has been diagnosed with Addison's disease. He will need lifelong medical care to manage it but he certainly has no idea he is sick. Please research Addison's and call the shelter to talk about what having a dog with Addison's entails. Due to his disease, he must be an indoor family dog and cannot be a working dog.

Lefty is house trained, however he will need take medications that require he have access to a lot of water and easy access to go potty. He is great at using a dog door and will appreciate a big space with a fenced area.



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

Most adoptable dogs will need some reintroduction into a home, potty training, basic manners and social skills. Please be prepared to provide that training and dedication that will be needed.

We do not have any way of knowing if a dog or cat will do well with all children or all other animals.

It is important everyone in the home is introduced to the new pet.

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 www.adoptmountainpets.org or call the Shelter between 11:00 am and 5:45 pm Tuesday through Saturday. 970 626 2273
