About Artie (artemis)

Adoption Fee: $300


I need a single family home!

Hey there! My name is Artemis, but you can call me Arty. I’m a 45 pound, 2 year old pittie mix. You may have noticed I’m missing a leg, but that doesn’t slow me down one bit. I’m the happiest, friendliest pup you could ever want! I always want to meet everyone I see and love them all. I love going on walks with my foster family and would love an active family I can go on adventures with. I’m great in the car and am good on a leash—I pull a little bit cause I’m just so excited but am doing much better on a harness. Toys are the best! My favorite toy is whichever one just got thrown, or whichever one another dog has (foster mom says I need to learn to share better…). Water is a lot of fun too; I love to chase water out of the hose or stick my head in the sprinklers. We just started working on obedience training, and I’m a champ! I listen well and just want to please, and learn quickly. I’ve learned sit, lay down, leave it, and stay already. I can get really excited, so I’ve been told I need to learn better manners—I’m working on it, but the world is just so exciting! I adore kids (they’ll roll around on the floor with me and I can give them kisses!), but sometimes I can play a bit rough. If I was supervised around little ones while I learn to play a little more gently, I would be fine with anybody. I haven’t seen cats, but I do love to chase anything so maybe shouldn’t be around them. I would -love- to have another playful pup to hang out with and play play play. Mostly, I just want an active family to hang out with and cuddle forever!

0621059 I need a single family home with a fenced in yard since I require lots of physical and mental stimulation! I am heartworm positive. Heartworm is NOT contagious. The rescue covers the cost of treatment at the rescue's vet.  We are excited to introduce  everyone to BENJI! 💙🐶💙 BENJI is a neutered 3 year old ish Australian Kelpie/GSD X that is a total sweet heart💙 - & just look at those ears!!! He has been living with both older kids & younger kids. Benji has been a gentleman when he has met other dogs.  Not sure what he thinks about cats, but he hasn’t paid much attention to the bunnies we occasionally see in the yard.  Benji is a big, shy boy who still needs to put on some weight, which we are diligently working on! He is house trained having just a couple of accidents at first. He is eager to please & is very happy when he receives praise when he does something well.  After several days with lots of sleep 💤 & yummy food 😋, Benji has gotten more & more comfortable with his new, comfy, family lifestyle here in Colorado.🏔 Benji came to DCCR with the many homeless dogs rescued from TX. He is being treated for heart worm (non contagious & DCCR pays for his treatment!). He likes to take short walks & spend LOTS of his time snuggling on a dog bed, soft blanket, or on your lap!  Once he’s healthy, Benji will make a great hiking & adventure companion! Can you be the one to give Benji his “fur-ever” home?! 🏡💙🏡   show less
