This little/big Golden Retriver had just arrived at the La Junta pound the day or two before we got there, so it had to stay, and we couldn’t take it with us.  😦 Legally, the pounds must keep the dogs for 5 days so the owners can come a find them. After 5 days, they put the dog “up for adoption” aka give it a few days before they put it down.  The black and brown dog, sammy, is only about 1 year old. Brand new adult teeth. I forget if it was a boy or a girl, so I thought sammy would be a good middle of the road name ( ill just say she’s a she for now). She was so scared in the little cage  and shaking so I took her out to play with her and she couldn’t have been happier. It took her about 30 seconds to jump into my arms. She was just the best little dog. The last little guy, sancho, was the cutest little thing I had ever seen. A long haired german shepard, I was told? He still has his baby teeth and is fluffy as can be, and quite a big puppy. He is going to be a big boy!

i’m personally a little partial to sancho —->     photo.JPG  photo.JPG

this little corgi/chihuahua was picked up by a rescue in Wyoming. She was the sweetest pup, and just sat in Ashley’s lap the whole drive home. Probably because she had just been attacked by satan dog, but also most likely becuase she was a stray. She was very underweigh and very skiddish of any sudden noises. However, she was quite the lover and just wanted to be held and loved giving kisses to the big dogs!

This husky mix, was also most likely a long time stray or maybe just a runaway. He was an expert escape artist, but was also a very good companion in the car, he napped almost the whole way from La Junta to Denver! He is now in a foster home, but they are hoping to adopt him!


Charlie is a staffordshire terrier/mixesh type. He was such a gentleman, and didn’t mind being crammed in the back seat of the car with 8 other dogs. I just think he was happy to get out of the pound. My friend Sarah is fostering him and he is loving every minute of it. I don’t think he will be their foster pup for long, because I have a feeling they are going to adopt him and make him an “official” member of the family, although he already feels like the king of the castle!

bubba was  a puppy mastiff mix who was picked up by Doggy Dog world

he puts the world Gentle Giant into action. It was hard to let him go, even though i only knew him for a few hours, it felt like he had been my pup for ever!
