Missy 1's story
Missy is currently in our care and her foster mom says:  Missy is believed to be a bull terrier mix and has their famous energy & big personality to go with it. She'd suit a very active home and loves early walks or to join a family who starts their day jogging. She thrives on attention and is a bundle of energy first thing in the morning.  We have witnessed no manner of aggression from her whatsoever, even in stressful situations. She doesnt mind sharing a food bowl, or if we pick her bowl up. Shes not even concerned about the automatic vacuum cleaner. 
I believe she would do best in a home with another friendly dog, and people familiar with Bull Terrier personalities. She loves to meet new people although she hasnt been around children, but we suspect she would be great with older kids as she is very physical and energetic. She is very dog friendly and has since bonded quite nicely to our own dog and is so attached she will copy anything he does. If he jumps in the car, she jumps in the car, if he stops and uses the bathroom, so does she. If hes already in the kennel she will walk right in, and they happily share it all night.
She is very alert to cats but she did not behave aggressively towards one we saw approache her, however, she has displayed a strong prey drive towards squirrels, and will climb a tree to chase them! Missy doesnt pull on the leash, but may need more leash training, She will walk in front of you, or so near that she trips you. It will need to be a skill her new family continues to work on. She is NOT a fan of bathing. Lots of patience needed when showering her or maybe have a professional do it. 
All dogs are available for online adoption now.  In-person adoptions will begin on the date of a dog's first event provided they are still available.Dogs not adopted during their first event will attend additional events thereafter until adopted. 
Our adoption events are at the Lakewood Petco, 475 S Wadsworth Blvd on Fridays 4pm-7pm and Saturdays 11am-1pm.  A completed adoption application online is required prior to viewing our dogs. Adoption fees include vaccines up until time of adoption, microchip, spay/neuter and first 30 days of free pet insurance. We are not affiliated with Pet First pet insurance. Adopter has to sign up for the insurance if they are interested or it will not go into effect. Adopter can go to our vet for medical issues that may arise in the first 3 days of adoption with prior authorization as per condition on Terms of Adoption.
The dogs in our care are fostered in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico.  While all dogs are picked up at our Lakewood Petco adoption events, sometimes transport dates change due to unforeseen circumstances.  A dog on PENDING status means the dog is still en route to our rescue but is scheduled to arrive very soon.  A dog on AVAILABLE status means the dog is currently in our care.
