About Choco & Orejas Doblas

Adoption Fee: $200
German Shepherd mix
Age: Young Adult

Orejas Dobladas ('Folded Ears' in Spanish) (behind in photo) and Choco (in front) are three-year-old littermates. They are sterilized, current on their vaccinations, and take a flea and tick prophylactic monthly. I first saw them as puppies in early 2020, and it was evident that they were not doing well. Their owner readily gave them up to me. Shortly afterwards, early during the Covid-19 lockdown, they, my other dog, my cat, and I left Denver for an isolated, sparsely populated area on the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur, Mexico, where we enjoyed an outdoor, off-leash life until nearly the present day. Both are happy, playful, affectionate spirits, socialized to people and other dogs, and at least one cat, with whom they lived for about two years. They are fit and in excellent health. For most of our time in Baja, we walked, ran, and/or cycled on- and off-leash in the morning, afternoon, and evening, often for distances approaching, at times exceeding, five miles a day. After they got on their feet, it was my intention to offer them for adoption. With our return to Colorado from Mexico, I'm doing so with the help of Orejas Dobladas is a 35 lb. female. Her ears are erect with the tips folding inwards. That and her slender face lend her an exotic appearance, resembling, I think, that of a jackal. She has a liveliness that often transcends into jubilance. If there's a soccer game in sight, she'll bring it to a standstill as she demonstrates her version of dribbling, and will chase a football or baseball back and forth between those throwing it till I call her off. As we leave for a walk, she is prone to grab one of her small stuffed animals so that it's not left behind. She is a font of contagious happiness. Choco is a 42 lb. male. We lived in a remote setting in Mexico, where local roads were unpaved and lightly traveled. He quickly let me know that when we drove, he preferred to run, which on one occasion the odometer measured at 12 miles before I insisted he join us in the car. He would be happiest in a home where he could join others in the household on runs and bike rides. He has a competitive nature, almost always the one to return with the ball when we play fetch. If that's at the beach, while my other dogs are sizing up the waves and thinking 'Umm, I dunoooooo', he's already crashed through them head on and is nearly to the ball. While all my dogs are affectionate, Choco leads the pack. He stays closest to me through the day, frequently checking in, and sleeps closest to me at night.
