MONTE VISTA, Colo. (KRDO) -- A shelter in Monte Vista is hoping someone can adopt a rescued dogs that has been waiting for 720 days.

Kacey Widetich, who works with Relay For Rescue, says four-year-old Drools has been breaking records after staying nearly two years at the Conour Animal Shelter.

Widetich says she's been staying at the shelter since Thursday so that the pitbull/boxer mutt doesn't spend his nights alone. However, she says it is hard to find a forever home for the dog.

"Not a lot of exposure because of [the shelter's] location," Widetich said. "And because we're kind of particular about what kind of forever home he goes to. He does need to go to a home where he'll be the only pet, no other dogs or cats."

Here's a little more information about Drools:

  • Approximately 4 y/o neutered male pitbull/boxer mix
  • Needs to be an only pet (no other dogs or cats)
  • Knows basic training/commands
  • Up to date on vaccinations
  • Good with adults and kids, just cautious at first
  • Loves to snuggle and be petted/touched by his people
  • Moderate energy and activity level

If you're interested in adopting Drools, contact Relay For Rescue or visit the Conour Rescue Facebook Page.

  1. I can see why it looks like it has some pitbull in it no one wants a psycho killing machine in their house. I’d say time to euthanize it.

      1. Pitbulls just come predisposed for killing things. If it’s such a great dog why don’t you adopt it. I’m willing to kill it why won’t you do your part?

  2. Transfer to a pit bull lover rescue or just euthanize it. It’s taking up resources that other adoptable dogs could be using. 2 years!? It’s obviously a problem dog. I don’t believe it’s the fact that the shelter is far. With the use of internet, people will travel interstate to adopt.

  3. almost all the dogs in shelters and rescues around here are filled with pits and pit mixes. By coincidence, just earlier I was at .The bite rates ad death rates from attacks by pits blow every other breed out of the water. Just wait till the pittie lovers get on here. they think they can change the truth by typing in all caps.

    1. 48 U.S. dog bite-related fatalities occurred in 2019. Despite being regulated in Military Housing areas and over 900 U.S. cities, pit bulls contributed to 69% (33) of these deaths. Pit bulls make up about 8% of the total U.S. dog population

    2. Yeah people go and get a dog to make them look badass then they realize that they have no business owning a hyperactive attention needing hound and then the mistreatment begins and then when the dog lashes out the breed is bad……listen just because alot of idiots went and got pits then they where bite in return for mistreatment doesn’t mean the breed is bad it mean the people owning the breed need alot more education and maybe a high five, with chair, in their faces….. pits are VERY high energy and need specific environment if people cant provide this they shouldn’t own a pit-anything.

  4. I have a dog who is at the top of the list for most bites. I try to keep him under control. Yep I have a chihuahua.

  5. Seven hundred and something days? Meh, that’s like a month in dog years. He will be fine.
