You'll have to stop in sometime soon to take our Denver out for a walk!

She may do best in a home without other dogs or cats, according to her previous owner. Zoe has a cyst on her left eye and one on her back that may need some minor vet care as she gets older.

Charlie - 12350 ADOPTED
Charlie is an adorable 3 year old neutered male Border Collie mix surrendered to the shelter in late April. What a sweet little boy! Charlie is truly a lap dog and would be content just snuggling in and being close. He may have never been on a leash in his previous life, because he cries sometimes and seems so confused on his leash walks. Therefore a very gentle hand and a patient new owner will be best for this sweet boy. He even gives kisses, so we know he'll be a wonderful addition to a new family, he'll just need time to adjust! Charlie has previously lived well with other dogs and cats. He may do best in a home without small children.
