Captain (2 years, 1 month)

Learn more about Captain


This wonderful guy was found at a compound where he had been dumped. According the ladies who found him he was healthy when he got there. They believe he was being taunted and otherwise abused by some of the compound employees, that he has possibly been hit, or attacked by someone or something, which is how he lost his eye. His rescuers reached out to New Hope for assistance in finding Captain a loving forever home here in Colorado where he will be protected and able to relax and enjoy the kind of life he deserves. Will that be you?

Rusty (Courtesy List)

Rusty is being listed for adoption as a courtesy to his owner. Interested adopters can contact Jess at or 720-357-3974 for additional information. RUSTY'S BIO: Rusty may look like a lion, but rest assured he's a cattle dog through and through. He was born on July 24th to a Red Heeler/Belgian Malinois mix mom. His dad (our dog Cosmo...whoops!) is a Blue Heeler/Great Pyrenees/German Shepherd mix. Rusty will probably be a big boy and this guy is NO couch potato! Rusty is a beautiful teddy bear with the softest coat, but he likes snuggles on his own terms. Like all heelers, he's communicative with his mouth, loves to chase, and as a puppy he's very playful and curious. He is wicked smart and a bit willful, just like a proper heeler. He loves to chew and is known to steal bones from our other pups (and bury them in the yard!). We have a doggy door and he chooses to spend a lot of his time exploring the yard and lazing in the warm sun. He loves going for walks, though he will need someone to teach him not to pull and help him learn that he doesn't need to bark at other dogs (or people) while he's out. We have had Rusty with us for the last month and are absolutely in love with this little guy. He gets along so well with our Cosmo and our house full of kids. We would LOVE to keep him, but realize that he is going to require more one-on-one attention and training as he grows than we think we'll be able to provide. Rusty would do best with an experienced working breed owner who has a yard (or land!) for him to enjoy. He will be the perfect adventure buddy to join an active pack. He would love to have another dog in the house, though this isn't necessary as long as he is getting plenty of engagement (and belly rubs of course) from his people.

Learn more about Nick


Nick was on the euthanasia list and the tx shelter asked if nhcdr could please help. He was found in the county by a good sammaritan and kept while he tried to find his owners but no luck and his only option was to surrender to the shelter. We do know dog friendly from the person who found him in TX, , good with cows and horses loves car rides but NO CATS!! . Nick is now in a temporary foster home and has been doing well with different female dogs. He is dog selective on walks especially with male dogs but is sweetest boy with people , loves to play fetch and even brings the ball back, likes his soup bones and treats. He is house broken and cuddles up at night. Besides his beautiful markings he is neutered and heartworm negative.

B.D. Was found along a busy highway in SanYsidro , NM about 30 miles from Albuquerque a month ago. He is getting neutered the week of 11/14 then will head up to Colorado as ready to find his new home. The person who found him said about 11 mos old. Good with kids and other dogs too. He was along a very busy highway and had been trying to find his owners but looking more as though like he was dumped out there like so many down that way. Let’s give him the life and love he deserves.

Kensi has the same story as Rue Rue..... Euthanizing in roswell for space. Needing 17, yes 17 open kennels by today or will be euthanizing. By tagging her one more has a chance! Rescue is getting tougher each day, foster, adopt or donate if you can

Boogie (2 years, 5 months)

Learn more about Boogie


Boogie is an awesome dog, what we like to call a "Diamond in the RUFF". He is very energetic and tends to jump up on people when first meeting them. However he is super smart and treat motivated, so training him out of that is very doable. If you want a fetcher, then Boogie is the dog for you. In fact he gets fixated on the ball to the point of shutting out everything else (Can you say "working dog"?). He's great on a leash and is very loyal. He wants to please, so his adopter should be experienced with cattle dogs, have patience, know how to be the boss, and able to help him become the loving, faithful dog we know he can be. Dogs like Boogie are why people become so loyal to the ACD/Heeler breed. Whoever decides to become his new forever family will not be sorry.

Fergus (3 years, 2 months)

Learn more about Fergus


Hello! My name is Fergus and I am 30lbs of love. My foster family doesn’t know much about my past but I was found as a stray in New Mexico and am very excited to have made my way to this dog loving state! My favorite part of my foster home is my foster brother. We play all the time (even though he’s so tall I can stand underneath him!) and then we like to snuggle together at night. I think I would benefit from a sibling in my forever home to help me feel comfortable and continue to teach me what it’s like to be a loved part of a family! I am very shy around new people and it takes me a little while to warm up, so some patience is necessary with my new owners. Once I get to know you though, I just want to snuggle and make little happy grunts when petted. I do have a strong prey drive and I really perk up when I see cats, so probably best that I don’t live with any. I love going on walks, I’m getting more comfortable in the car and I can’t wait to find a forever adventure family!

Dora (2 years, 1 month)

Learn more about Dora


Dora is a very sweet and lovable 2 year old puppy girl that made her freedom ride from a shelter in Walsenburg, CO. Although she can be a little shy initially, it doesn’t take long for her affectionate personality to surface and win over everyone that she meets. Dora weighs in at a healthy 38lbs, is spayed, chipped, and up to date on vaccinations. LOVE BUG ALERT: Dora’s favorite positions include resting quietly at your feet (if you happen to work from home) or snuggled up next to her humans on the couch. Dora is both house trained and crate trained, does well in the car, is good with other dogs with proper introduction, and finds squirrels especially fascinating. She’s had only limited interactions with kids, but does well with them. Being both food and affection motivated, she’s working on learning basic commands, and would benefit from continued training in her forever home environment. Like most heelers, Dora is going to need an owner that can meet her physical and mental exercise requirements in order to live her best life. She walks well on leash and we’re trying to introduce frisbee training into her training repertoire. If you have the patience and willingness to work with this sweet soul, please fill out an application and we can see if her lovable personality is a good fit for you!

Jazzy (10 months)

Learn more about Jazzy


Hi everyone. I came in from Pampa,TX in September and was adopted out to a nice family. I bonded with the mom and one of the daughters but sometimes I would growl at the other family members like I didn’t know them. With much regret, they returned me to the rescue. With the people that I love and trust, I am happy, loving and cuddly. I love walking and would be a good outdoor activity enthusiast. My foster mom doesn’t want to label me but it is possible that I will need a heeler savvy owner, maybe a single person and I may not impress you at our meet and greet. Grrrr and chomp. I have been playful with other dogs in my foster home but I will put them in their place with a wicked stare and nose poke if they try to share my attention with mom. I shouldn’t live with chickens unless you need help preparing them for dinner. Does anyone need a heeler challenge for 2023? If so, please inquire about me. BTW, my first family named me Buoy and it seemed to stick. Let’s chat soon.
