Earl is an absolute sweetheart! If anyone has ever considered taking on a senior dog, Earl is your guy! Despite some old war wounds on his face and ears, Earl is a gentle, loving, mellow soul who just wants everyone to love him. Earl is vision impaired, but can still see shadows and is able to navigate spaces and map out his house pretty well. His pupils do respond to light so can see better in the light than the dark. Because of this he is very hesitant to take walks or navigate steps in the dark, but will follow verbal cues. In between naps, Earl will fool you in to thinking he is younger than his years – Suggest a walk, or mention dinner, and he is bouncing around like a younger pup! He loves his walks and trots along like a pony, taking in all the smells along the way! Ideally, Earl needs to be part of a family where he is not alone all day as he does have a little separation anxiety. He will bark when left alone but doesn't need to be crated when his humans are gone.
Michone is a little lovebug! She loves to be by our side, whether working in the home office or relaxing after dinner. She's very inquisitive- exploring her temporary backyard and the nooks and crannies inside (and trying to decide how she feels about the vacuum). Michone is an incredibly sweet dog, with lots of fun energy. She would be a excellent companion for an active home. Michone loves the water and she is completely content rolling around in snow piles- she was made for Colorado!

Everyday 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animals, and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don't ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a puppy mill, and remind people to adopt from a shelter or a rescue. Thank you! (from here)
An intact dog can produce two litters a year of 6-10 puppies per litter, which means in six years, one female dog and her offspring could produce up to 67,000 dogs. An average of 40,000 cats/dogs are euthanized in Colorado each year (that's JUST Colorado!).
