This is a long shot, but my lease is up in December and I’m looking to move into a house with a backyard for my dog. We are looking for a 3rd roommate for a 3+ br/ba. So if you happen to know anyone looking for a similar situation, let me know! My Brother is 30, a Brand Specialist with a BA from CU Denver, I’m 31 with a MBA from Leeds. My dog is 6 years old, 60lbs, super friendly. Open to anywhere between Denver and Boulder. Open to M/F and another dog is welcome. We’re both vaccinated.
