Dudley - Colorado Springs, CO

Meet Dudley!  He's a 1 yr old, 40 lb, neutered male Heeler mix.

Dudley is a nice little fella that came from a shelter that euthanizes over half of their animals. He loves to play and cuddle. He does well in the house and rarely has an accident. He stays close to my house even though I don't have a fence.


He does have some dominance and food aggression with other dogs. He needs to go to a home that does not have young children. We think he would do best as an only dog.


About a month ago he suddenly developed severe allergies. We had him tested and there are only a few foods that he is not allergic to. We have only been able to find 2 types of kibble that he can eat and both are about $60 for 20 lbs so I've been cooking one meal a day for him and giving him kibble for the other. He is currently on antibiotics and steroids to help heal his sores. His adoption fee is $50. He is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, dewormed, and tested heart worm negative.

Miss Little Lou - Cortez, CO

Meet Lou!  She is an approximately 9 month old, 40 lb, female spayed Australian Shepherd mix.

Miss Little Lou has the eyes of an old soul and has endured much in her short life, but is so sweet, friendly, and loving no one would guess what she has been through. She was found on a Native American reservation with a damaged hind leg (possibly hit by a truck).


The first repair involved inserting a long metal rod into her leg, which didn’t work. It caused damage and was infected, so the leg was eventually amputated. She is such a trooper enduring the surgeries and aftercare with a plea in her eye and a wag of her tail.


She is now looking for that special forever home. Lou is approx. a 9 months old Australian shepherd mix with cute spotted front paws and a long swishy tail. She weighs about 40 lbs, shouldn’t get much larger, is spayed, and is UTD on vaccinations.


She is house trained, sort-of leash trained, affectionate, playful, great with other dogs big and small, great with children, but is too much for cats.


She can manage the shallow porch steps, but hasn’t been up/down regular stairs, and cant jump into a car though she rides fine once in. Subsequent x-rays indicated that her pelvis may have also been fractured, so her mobility is probably as good as it will get. Lou has free run of several acres with other dogs to play with, but she does tire running and will sit down to rest. She does have a “rear support cart/wheel chair” and can go a mile or so with this. When inside, she “scoots” a lot, may partially be due to slippery floors?


She likes to play with toys, chew on bones, wrestle with her doggy house mates, and cuddle with her person. She’s not the dog for you if you are looking for a running/ biking/ hiking partner, but if you are looking for a sweet, gentle, friendly dog who just wants to be loved, Lou may be your match. Lou’s adoption fee is $95.00 and she is being fostered in Cortez, CO.

For all information, please email either Maggie :  mgruschow@gmail.com or email to : blackhathumane@gmail.com.  We would love for Lou to stay relative local but are open to adopting her into the perfect home anywhere!
