With his warm welcoming eyes, tenderhearted Tampico wins over everyone he meets. Barely past puppy hood at the age of one, he’s 22 pounds of sweetness and calmness mixed with friendliness and friskiness. Thriving on attention, he loves being petted by his foster mom, going for walks and on car trips, playing and running with the resident 6-year-old and, after the proper introductions, with other equally playful dogs. Famously fond of chewing on toys, bones and fabrics of all kinds, he also loves carrying around a ball in his mouth and could chew on it endlessly. Motivated by food and toys, he knows “sit”, is learning his other commands, is at work on his leash skills and is both crate and housetrained. Now all Tampico needs is an active home with loving adopters to perfect his leash skills, complete his education and keep him mentally and physically satisfied fur-ever.
Animal Rescue of the Rockies believes that every pet should find a wonderful, caring home. To ensure each pet finds the best possible home, we ask that you fill out our Adoption Application so we can learn more about you and your household. We review each application we receive and will contact you within 48 hours. If your home sounds like a good match for you and the pet,
the next step is to set up a "meet and greet." After meeting the pet, if you would like to proceed with adopting, we'll ask that you read and sign our Adoption Agreement and pay the adoption fee. Our adoption fees help cover the costs of saving more lives!
A home visit will be scheduled within one week of your new pet going home with you.
The adoption fee for this pet is $300. Our adoption fee covers the following:
- Spay/Neuter, Microchip
- DAPP vaccinations as age appropriate for dog - adopter shall be responsible for all DAPP boosters after adoption.
