Gus Gus, one of four puppies who were just days old when they were rescued from a trash can in Highlands Ranch, looks up out of his crate before being neutered during an eight week pre-adoption check-up at the Humane Society of the Pikes Peak Region Thursday, July 18, 2013. Because of the increased interest in the long-haired, small breed mix puppies, HSPPR has set up an adoption application online that can be found under the "What's New" tab on www.hsppr.org.
