Meet the Dogs - 2018 American Rescue Dog Show
Adopted from: Boxer Rescue LA
About Colonel: Colonel couldn’t be happier with his adopted family. He likes to snuggle up on the sofa with them while watching movies and snores away! When he is not snoring like a freight train, the Colonel also loves to hike. He has climbed over 700 hills and mountains with Shawn and even carries his own backpack. Since adopting Colonel, Shawn has now become a rescue volunteer.
Favorite Toy: The Colonel does not discriminate – he loves ALL of his toys. But I guess if he has a favorite, it would be anything that rolls. He is OBSESSED with balls!
Favorite Treat: The Colonel LOVES (cooked) broccoli, Brussel sprouts, spaghetti noodles, and French fries. He immediately sits down and puts on his best begging manners until I finally break and give him some. They make him so crazy that he drools HUGE bubbles until he gets some.
Favorite Activity: HIKING! The colonel has climbed over 700 hills and mountains and is a member of the Sierra Club’s Hundred Peaks Section. He’s earned the coveted “100 Peaks Emblem” for having achieved ascents on one hundred mountains on their list, which are over 5 ,000 feet high in Southern California. He’s one of only a few dogs who have ever accomplished this.
Loves: Hiking, butt-scratches, and playing with squeaky toys – in this order.
Fun fact: He can perform the following for treats: sit, beg, stand up, fetch, lie down, high five, speak, and kisses on command.
