More About DENVER & NIRVANA (TOGETHER)

These cuties are still looking for a family to welcome two canine friends into their home! DENVER & NIRVANA are two very special friends and will make the right family proud and make their world a better one!

Denver is as sweet as he is fluffy! This shy guy just wants to feel secure and loved. Denver was found as a stray and although he is shy and slow to warm up to new people, once you gain his trust, he is affectionate, cuddly, and playful. He has kind eyes and a gentle soul. He is about 10 months old and about 30 pounds, plus all the fluff!
Denver has been with his foster family for a few months. He had been gaining confidence, learning to let loose, discovering playing with toys and balls, and letting his silly puppy side show. He loves to cuddle his foster mom and with his foster sibling Nirvana. He has learned to enjoy touch and now engages for snuggle time. He can easily relax with his people, watch a movie or settle in for a good belly rub.

Denver is still easily startled by loud noises and busy streets, so a home on the quieter side would be a good fit. He loves to run free off leash in the yard and loves to play with other dogs. He has gotten comfortable and trusting enough to enjoy off leash hikes with his foster mom too! He will likely need an adjustment period in his new home and will do best with a family who has prior experience with shy dogs, time and patience to devote to Denver who will appreciate some extra love and understanding. Denver will in turn reward his family by being that special, devoted and loyal companion.

Denvers foster sibling NIRVANA has never met a stranger! This bouncy, energetic girl loves to play with people, dogs, and toys! She’s great off leash and settles in nicely in the house. She loves pets and belly rubs and giving kisses. She is good with kids and great off leash meeting New people and dogs on the trail. She is confident and well adjusted, eager to please, and as sweet as can be! Nirvana is truly a gem and has been a true confidence builder for her friend Denver. Nirvana is 2-3 years old and about 35 pounds. The perfect size for all the great adventures life has to offer. NIRVANA is a true gem of a dog, always ready to have a good time.

Denver had a hard time adjusting to his new foster home. He was feeling shy and often chose to stay in one room where he could have quiet, alone time, or just hang with his foster mom. He showed glimpses of playfulness and trust, but his progress was slow. All of that changed when Nirvana arrived from the shelter. Denver immediately perked up! He started coming into the rest of the house, following Nirvana, bouncing and playing. He was a different dog within days of Nirvana's arrival! The two are now inseparable. They play all day, run in the yard, hike together off leash, and cuddle curled up together every day! They are the perfect pair. Built in companions and just the right mix of confidence and willingness to learn and grow. These two are such a great pair.

We hope to find a home where they can continue to have each other. They both have good house manners, kind and gentle. Nirvana certainly has been good for Denver and its been wonderful to watch him grow his confidence and enjoy the world with a best friend by his side.

They are being fostered in Essex Junction, Vermont. These two will make a family very happy and will certainly provide a rewarding experience. We do require no kiddos and a fenced in yard for Denver's ongoing confidence building.
