• Englewood, Colorado

My name is Kirie.  I am available for adoption through Colorado Canine Rescue (CCR), a nonprofit dog rescue located in the Denver area. I came to CCR from Canon City Colorado. There is very little history on me.  CCR has been told I am a pit bull breed mix, but that is just a guess made by shelter staff, rescue volunteers, and our veterinarians.   

It is said when life gives you lemons, make lemonade.  Well Kirie has had quite a few lemons handed to her in her 4 year life span, but definitely making the best lemonade that she can.  Kirie was adopted out from CCR as a young dog but two years later wound up in the Aurora Shelter, having been abandoned.  They called us so we could take her back into our rescue.  Kirie has had TPLO surgery since being returned to us, going through training with a behaviorist, and a foster has worked diligently to get her past her pulling on the leash, and help her master her needs to attack water spouts and sprinkler heads. 

Kirie still has separation issues, but does well in the foster home left with other dogs and free reign within the home.  She is on a generic Prozac to help her manage with anxiety. Kirie loves to snuggle with her people on the couch and in bed and absolutely loves to give kisses.  She is looking for a family that will give her plenty of attention, be home more than not, play fetch, take her on walks in the neighborhood. She adores children and is very gentle with them.  Kirie so looks forward to rides in the car. She would enjoy being an only dog, but would do fine with a furry companion that has a laissez-faire attitude.  She does best if the door is open or a doggie door for her to go out as needed.  She needs a more experienced dog owner because she has been through so much in life.  


If you are interested in adopting Kirie, please submit an adoption application located on our website, We are asking for a  $200 adoption donation for Kirie.  Kirie being a bully breed, will only be placed in communities that do not have a ban on bullies.  Please note, CCR cannot guarantee the breed composition or ages of our dogs as we usually have no history prior to them entering the shelter.
