Adoptable Adventure Dog: Scarlett

**Wow, that was fast! A foster from DMK Rehoming will be taking Scarlett in. Thanks Outdoor Beginner readers!**

Scarlett is the perfect adventure dog in every way. She’s got great manners, is super smart and trainable, and very sporty. She’s got a big dog personality in a body that can’t counter surf – what more could you want? Scarlett already knows “Sit” and walks well on the leash. She’s a big fan of playtime, snuggling, and doling out lots of kisses.

Scarlett is a one year old American Bulldog/Bassett Hound mix. This lowrider girl is a bit different than the other dogs that have been featured, because she is not up for adoption, she is up for rescue/a foster home.

What does that mean? She needs someone affiliated with a dog rescue to choose to be her foster parent. Fostering means you take care of the dog, but the rescue pays their medical expenses and for food. It’s a win-win because you can spring a dog from the shelter and their expenses are paid for. You can always choose to adopt her yourself, but your usual job as a foster parent is to give the dog a good home until someone decides to adopt them and give them a forever home.

Anyways, back to Scarlett. The only reason she is not adoptable through DAS is her bad kennel presentation. Other than that, she’s perfect. She’s not a big fan of being cooped up, like any good adventure dog, and her bark makes her sound kind of scary. Not a good formula for someone picking her out on the adoption floor.

If you want to give Scarlett a home and are already a foster person for a Colorado rescue, tell your rescue you want to pull Scarlett. 

If you want to give Scarlett a home and are not already a foster person, contact a local rescue. Here is a list of some Denver area ones:

Animal Rescue of the Rockies

4 Paws 4 Life



Adoptable Adventure Dogs is a series on Outdoors Beginner featuring shelter dogs that would make excellent partners in adventure. I am a volunteer at the Denver Animal Shelter, and therefore most of the featured dogs are currently residing there. If you know of a deserving pup that needs a home from your local shelter, please feel free to reach out to me at! Remember – Adopt, Don’t Shop. The best breed is rescued!

      Hi Mountain Republic, Scarlett has luckily already gotten a committed foster! Denver Animal Shelter has a lot of really awesome other dogs that are in need of foster homes. You can direct them to the Facebook page DAS Transfer Team to stay up to date. Thanks for supporting Denver shelter pets, and sorry it took me so long to respond to this!
