Cedar Corgi/Basset Hound mix Female 2 years old 46 lbs. Hey there! I'm Cedar, like the beautiful tree. Do you remember the ZZ Top song 'Legs'? Sing along with me. I'll howl it for ya: 'She's got legs! She knows how to use them. She never begs... She knows how to choose them' owwoooooooo! So here's the deal: In my wildest dreams, running through the dog park, I have long legs and a graceful gait, but the truth is, I have short little legs. I'm hound-dog proud of 'em! I'm 46 pounds of pure love and ready to be your special girl! I used to live on the Western Slope, but when my former family moved, they left me with a relative who took me to the shelter. I spent lots of time outside there, and that was OK, but I'd much rather be inside with you! My foster mom says I'm friendly, goofy and sweet, with energy for long walks and maybe even a little running. I will do my best to keep up with you - short legs and all! I love being entertained and loved by humans (and I'm pretty entertaining myself), but I'm not really into toys. Sudden movements startle me a little, so some gentle handling and calm voices help me feel comfortable with new people. I'm learning so much from my foster family when it comes to house manners! Right now, I'm getting to know my crate - although I would much rather be with you, I understand that it's part of the deal until I perfect my potty training. And I'm eager to please, so hopefully that won't take long! I like other dogs, but can be a little shy at first, especially with high-energy pups. I have three canine siblings right now and we all get along great. I love to make new friends - with two legs and four. I even like cats! I chased one at my foster house once, but they're more fun to watch. Strange little whiskered creatures aren't they? Since I can be a little skittish, my foster mom says I may not be the best fit for a home with small children. I guess there can only be one shortie in the house! Gosh... I think we should get together soon so I can show you my sweetness face-to-face. I can't wait to find my forever home and be your new best friend! That's my real dream; that you'll choose ME. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or fill out an adoption application, so we can meet! (Less)

Meet Eliza! She is a sweet and compassionate gal who loves toys of any kind and belly rubs. She likes to lay on the back of the couch like a cat! Eliza loves to cuddle with her people and is generally a lap dog. Despite her short legs, Eliza would make a great exercise partner. She walks, runs and hikes as much as she can! This girl has the energy and fortitude of a big dog encased in a small dog's body. She knows the commands 'Come', 'Sit' and 'Lay Down'. This girl is smart and trainable as she is food motivated. Eliza was surrendered to a local shelter after her previous home became too stressful and busy for her. Eliza needs a home that respects her shyness and is willing to give her the time necessary for her to warm up to her new family and their routine. She can exhibit resource guarding because she wants to protect her food, toys and bed. Therefore, she needs a family who is willing to work with her on her 'sharing skills'. This playful girl is fiercely loyal to her humans and is eager to please them. In her foster home, Eliza lives with another dog who is submissive to her so they get along just fine. She needs to be the alpha dog in a home. In her foster home, Eliza lives with older children who give her space and are considerate of her. She should not be around little children as she can be nippy if she feels overwhelmed or is hugged or petted too rough. As long as she is respected, she is good with older kids. Will you open up your heart and home to a short-legged beauty with a huge heart of devotion to her people? Please fill out the online app to start the process of giving Eliza her Forever Home today! Adoption fee is $125 which covers microchip, DAPP, Rabies, Heart Worm test and spay/neuter. Adoption fees also allow us to continue saving animals. Please email ARRColorado@gmail.com for more information, as we can not accept calls at this time. If you'd like to meet Eliza, please visit our website and fill out an online app! www.animalrescueoftherockies.org (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Basset Hound in Colorado|
Basset Hound Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Basset Hound is an exceptionally gentle, friendly dog that makes a great family pet. Basset Hounds are great with children. They require some patience to housebreak. Basset Hounds can do tricks, especially for treats. If overfed, a Basset Hound can quickly put on weight which strains its legs. Basset Hounds need plenty of exercise to stay healthy, but should be discouraged from jumping so as not to stress their legs. Basset Hounds can live in an apartment but need long walks and opportunities to run and play.
