Here at Slifer Smith & Frampton Real Estate, we are a bit dog obsessed! We are lucky to live in one of the most beautiful, active and dog friendly places in the country and we are proud of it. With over 100 brokers and staff in our company, there are a lot of personalities – same goes with our four legged friends! Meet the Dogs of Slifer…

Rufus is a fun, playful guy who loves to fetch and wrestle. He enjoys adventures  but when he gets home he’d like to snuggle underneath the blankets.

Hoss - LindseyHoss

Like his namesake, Hoss Cartwright, this big lug may appear intimidating at first but those who meet him quickly learn he’s just a gentle giant. Adopted from Oklahoma just two weeks ago, Hoss is enjoying exploring Vail (that is when he’s not busy exploring his new couch) and can’t wait to for his first Rocky Mountain snow storm!

Big sister River and her little bro Boone are a non-stop source of fun, energy, kisses and snuggles. They love to all things active, especially duck hunting. They also know how to make the term “bouncing off the walls” literal!  Life sure wouldn’t be the same without the two…

Oliver is the happiest cuddle-bug you’ve ever met. He is 5 years old, loves hiking, giving high-fives, snuggling with his little brother and watching the Green Bay Packers.





Patch - ClarePatch
