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.
