Olivia is a gorgeous Shepherd mix who was born in 2004. We don’t know a lot of details about her past, because she was left outside of the shelter. She needed medical treatment when she first arrived, but is all better, and is so ready to find her new home.
Olivia is incredibly smart, loyal, appreciative, and cuddly with the humans that she loves and trusts. She loves tummy rubs, playing with her toys, rolling in the grass, treats, and nice walks. She is quite the kisser too. Many of the volunteers are head over heels in love with her.
She has begun to make friends with some of the other dogs at the shelter. She may prefer to be an “only dog,” but if you have another dog at home, a meet and greet would be terrific. We are not sure how she feels about cats, so may do best in a home without them.
When Olivia lets you into her world, it is a very special place to be! She is a beautiful soul, and does not hold grudges. She would like to find a forever home where she feels safe, secure, and loved. We know that the best part of her life is yet to come! She is also available to be fostered. If you want to give Olivia her forever home, or are interested in fostering her, please contact the MaxFund office at (303) 495-4917.
Dakota is an Alaskan Husky/Akita mix. He truly is the elder statesman of MaxFund, distinguished, handsome, and patient. He was found as a stray in the mountains, and the people who found him noted that he is housetrained, as well as a polite, well-mannered gentleman. He is very easy to walk. Dakota has hip dysplasia, for which he takes supplements, so short, leisurely walks are recommended. Dakota also enjoys getting brushed, sitting in the sunshine, and lapping up love.
One of the many volunteers who loves spending time with Dakota shared a few fun facts about Dakota. First, at this mature stage of his life, he is different than the usual Husky, that is, no need to worry about wanderlust or trying to get out to roam! Second, he loves being talked to - he will gaze at you as though communicating telepathically.
If you currently have a dog, Dakota would love to do a meet-and-greet to see how he might do with your dog, but would do best if your dog is mild-mannered. Dakota also doesn’t mind being around cats.Dakota is a very special boy looking for a forever home. Please come visit with him to see how wonderful he is! Dakota is also available for foster care, so please contact the MaxFund office at 303-595-4917 to set up a meeting.
"Go ahead, make my day," says Max.
Max says, "I do undercover work, too!"
Max is actually a very sweet Chihuahua who's available for adoption at MaxFund. Check out his page here!
Mr. Nodeye made this great video of a day in the life of two MaxFund puppies, Nemo and Dory! Thanks, Mr. Nodeye! Please come to MaxFund to meet these sweeties and admire their finger, er, paw paintings.
We've changed! The date and the location for our 25th Anniversary gala, "Puttin' on the Max," that is!
