Vernon

How to sponsor me

       
                                                       
Rescued on: 2/19/14
Age: 7 yrs
Breed: Labrador Retriever (Black)
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 65 lbs
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Ok, but would do best as only dog.
Cats: Unknown but shows no interest in small animals like squirrels or rabbits.
Children: No small children, he is protective of toys and is quick to grab them.
Leash: Very good. Enjoys walks and runs, great on Easy Walk harness.
Personality: Vernon is an extremely smart and quick learning retriever.  He is an athletic and beautiful Lab with high energy. He knows "sit"and "come," but learned "out," "leave it," "find it" and "hold" in one hour!  He probably hasn't had any toys in his life and finds tennis balls quite precious. He has strong focus when retrieving and is not easily distracted by other barking dogs, loud noises or small animals. He works hard to put 3 tennis balls in his mouth and learned to drop on command and leave them. We watched him find the correct ball by scent, in a field of many other balls, after only an hour of training. Vernon was excited in the car, but calmed quickly and laid down -- looking out only when stopped.   He is protective of toys until he trusts they won't be taken away. He has excellent manners, is not a barker or a jumper. Vernon deserves a forever home where he can continue to train and get plenty of exercise.

UPDATE: Vernon does need an FHO surgery that is completely covered by the rescue. This surgery will help alleviate some joint pain Vernon has been living with.
Story: Vernon is a rescue from Oklahoma.
Thanks to Rover Retreat for being great fosters to Vernon!!

Rescued on: 3/11/14
Age: 12 yrs
Breed: Black lab mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 69 pounds
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Yes
Cats: Yes
Children: Yes
Leash: Good
Personality: Don’t let these white hairs fool you, I still have lots of life left to live and even more love to offer.  I ended up in a shelter after I lost my beloved owner quite a while back.  It seems very few people want to take a chance on an older dog like me.  I spent quite a few months in the shelter before finally finding my way to a wonderful foster home, and now I’m looking for a great forever home to live out my remaining years.   I have only been at my foster home for a few days, but my foster family has fallen head over heels in love with me.  They tell me what a great dog I am, just as sweet as can be.  I’m getting along great with all my foster doggie siblings.  Even the cat doesn’t bother me.  I love, love, love to play fetch.  I even still enjoy playing with the other dogs in the house, though I do enjoy my afternoon naps and hanging out in the sun on the deck.  I have recently had a senior blood panel done, and I’m healthy as can be. I don’t even take any medication. If you have it in your heart to open up your home to a wonderful senior guy, I would love to lounge around with you and show you how adopting an older dog can truly bring you more joy than you would have ever imagined.

Big Boy

How to sponsor me

  

                       
Rescued on: 3/23/2014
Age: 3 years
Breed: Black Lab
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 63lbs
House Trained: Does great with frequent visits outdoors and is learning to communicate his need to go out.  Great with kennels for security and time at home alone.
Other Dogs: Very curious about all other dogs, approach is friendly and excited.
Cats: Probably, does fine with our Guinea pigs but hasn't been around cats.
Children: He is learning how to interact with children and definitely does best with children who can be gentle and quiet with him initially.
Leash: Fast learner and doing well on long leashes.  Very responsive.
Personality:

Big boy is an overcomer!  He has never been in a home before, or around humans much, so it is a big adjustment and he is very cautious.  Overall, he is learning to trust humans and he has a heart to please and enjoy attention.  He is food motivated and is learning basic obedience quickly.  Routine is very important right now, and when we  maintain that, he is more calm and happy to be with people.  He will continue to gain confidence as soon as he gets settled in a forever home.  Ideally, he and Little Girl will find a home together, as he has never been separated from her and they gain much comfort from one another.

Story:

Big Boy and Little Girl were surrendered to an animal shelter in Washington County, Kentucky. He was kept in an
outdoor kennel his entire life with Little Girl and had little human interaction. Ideally it would be best for them to be adopted together! 

Thanks to the Noyes family

Rescued on: 3/23/2014
Age: 4 years
Breed: Black Lab
Sex: Female
Fixed: Yes
Size: 50 lbs
House Trained: Yes, does fine with frequent times outside.  Still learning how to communicate her need to go out to humans. Does great in a kennel when home alone and at night- also uses it for security during the day.
Other Dogs: Friendly, but not too interested in interaction.
Cats: Ok - does fine with our guinea pigs but hasn't been around cats.
Children: Ok, would probably do best with older children because she is very shy.
Leash: Learning quickly!  She is very responsive to her handler.
Personality: Little Girl is doing great~ she has a lot to overcome because she has not had much socialization nor has she ever lived in a home before.  She is very cautious of new things and people, but warms up once she knows they are safe.  She is such a sweet girl and ready to learn to trust humans with a steady routine and gentle interaction.  She is food motivated and is learning basic commands fairly steadily.  She loves going on walks and seeking out attention.  Ideally she and Big Boy would be placed together in their forever home, as they do draw much comfort from each other.  The sooner she can begin adjusting and getting more confident in her new home the better!!

Sara

Rescued on: 3/30/2014
Age: 1-2 years
Breed: Lab Mix
Sex: Female
Fixed: Yes
Size: 47 lbs
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Does fine off leash after proper introduction.  Needs more socialization on leash but will learn quickly.
Cats: No
Children: TBD
Leash: Very good leash walker
Personality: Sara is a VERY friendly dog.  She is happy to see anyone who walks throught he door and she is always welcoming.  Sara is definitely not a nervous dog, and is confident and happy with life! She does have a fair amount energy which would require at least an hour of outside run/walk/fetch time.  She most likely would need/want to be exercised at the beginning and end of the day if in a family who works all day.  With that said, Sara does not mind her crate and sleeps soundly in it all night.  She did not come to us with very many manners, but she is learning quickly.  Sara is a very sweet girl with a lot of love to give.  She will make a great companion for an active family/person who is willing to give her the time she deserves.

Rescued on: 4/2/2014
Age: about 3 years
Breed: Chocolate Lab
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 60 lbs
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Most Definitely!
Cats: TBD, but probably OK... I'm sure he would want to play with them
Children: Yes
Leash: Very Good.  Using a leash is like holding his hand to guide him around. He is also Very Good off leash and will tag right behind you to keep you in scent range.
Personality: Hi,my name is Max and that is a fitting name for me because I live my life to the Max.  I inherited a genetic disorder called OSD (Occulo Skeletal Dysplasia) which causes dwarfism and blindness.  I am a little shorter than your average lab and I am totally blind.  But I do not let that get in the way of having fun to the Max!  I am very strong and high energy and would do best in an active house with another active dog.  I LOVE other dogs to the Max!  I live with a 4 year old foster sister and a 12 year old foster brother and I want to maximize my play time with them.  I also LOVE to be around people and really like to be within touch or scent range of a human.  I will lay at your feet or will gladly get on the couch and put my head in your lap.  At night I settle down very nicely and will either share your bed without hogging it to the Max or I will gladly sleep on a dog bed near my human.  Because I am blind, it will take me a day or two to figure out the layout of your house and yard, but once I have it down, you can hardly tell I can't see.  My foster dad lets me have the run of the house and yard - I taught myself how to use the dog door! - when he is gone and I am very good while he is away.  I get a little freaked out when I have to go up or down stairs for the first time, but I figure them out pretty quick. Right now, I only have to navigate, at most, 3 steps at a time.  I'm sure I could figure out a whole flight of stairs, but it may take a while and I would probably do best in a home with fewer steps.  Please don't be alarmed about my condition.  Besides being blind and a little shorter, I am a typical young, healthy, loving, playful, goofy chocolate lab... and I'm Handsome to the Max!

Rescued on: 3/12/2014
Age: 1.5 Years
Breed: Black lab
Sex: Female
Fixed: Spayed
Size: 41 lbs
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: yes- she has been getting along great with her 3 foster sisters and loves to play with her boxer foster sister.  She’s also doing great at the dog park and loves to chase other dogs.
Cats: Unknown
Children: the few encounters with the niece and nephew has been successful.  A little timid and shy at first but allowed them to pet her.
Leash: She will pull a little and is very interested in her surroundings.
Personality:

Emily has a very sweet disposition and loves to be around her favorite human.  She is very shy and timid upon first encounters with new humans (especially men), dogs, and places but comes out of her shell once she knows and trust the person or dog. She has really opened up to her three foster sisters and plays with them often (the boxer is her favorite to wrestle with!).  The dog park is starting to be one of her favorite places and runs to the door anytime there is a jingle of a leash or car keys.  Her other favorite place is under a desk where she likes to eat and sleep.  She has been spotted chewing on items but hasn’t damaged any items yet. She knows where the toy bucket is and will pull out all toys.  Her favorite toy is a stuffed bear and can be seen carrying it around with her.  She is scared of loud noises especially large trucks (semi’s, dump trunks, etc) when they drive by.  Emily is currently completing rehab for her rear left leg (previous injury before we started fostering her)  and is making improvements daily.  Periodically at the dog park she will run on three legs but other than that you would never know she had an injury.  Emily has really become a sweet, wonderful dog. She is very active and playful and would love a family that likes to go on hikes, walks, and the dog park. She would love a family that has other dogs and lots of love and kisses for her!

 

Story:

Emily was rescued in Granby, Missouri.  She was living under an abandoned mobile home.

Thanks

to Jennifer and AJ for being great fosters to Emily!!!

Rescued on: 4/10/2014
Age: 4-5 months
Breed: lab Mix
Sex: Female
Fixed: No
Size: 35 lbs
House Trained: Not quite yet
Other Dogs: Yes
Cats: Yes
Children: I believe she would be good with kids
Leash: No
Personality: Arizona is a cute and wiggly little puppy.  She is always happy!  Arizona LOVES toys and tennis balls.  She is very affectionate but not all that cuddly right now as there are so many other things to do like chew on a bone or chase a ball. She can be a little shy around new people and is vocal about seeing her own reflection in a window.  She does have a tendency to be a little possessive with what she deems to be her toys.   She completely ignores the resident house cats and gets along with her foster brothers but cares more about playing with her toys or people versus playing with the older dogs.
Story:

Miss Arizona was flown in from Okmulgee Oklahoma on a private airplane.  She’s a jetsetter!   Thanks to Erie Municipal Airport for arranging her arrival!

Rescued on: 4/10/2014
Age: 4-5 months

Sex: Female
Fixed: No
Size: 35 lbs
House Trained: Not quite yet
Other Dogs: She’s OK around other dogs
Cats: Yes
Children: I believe she would be good with kids
Leash: No
Personality: Carolina is a calm and relaxed little puppy.  She is shy around new people but to those she identifies as being “her people” she is VERY affectionate and a big cuddler.  She does get jealous if another dog is being loved on and she will hone in and move the other dog out of the picture.  She is very loyal to those she lets into her circle and has a tendency to give a cold stare to other dogs or people if they approach. She will get “snappy” with the resident dogs if the approach her sister or try to take her sister’s toys. Although she gets along just fine with the resident dogs I think Carolina would be just as happy being an only dog.  She’s not overly concerned about playing with toys but really wants to lay with you on the couch and will pop into your lap ANYTIME you sit down.  She’s a people dog through and through and has a lot of love to give!

How to sponsor me


 

                       
Rescued on: 4/12/2014
Age: 4 Years
Breed: Yellow Lab Mix
Sex: Female
Fixed: Yes
Size: Large, approximately 75 pounds. She is long and lean.
House Trained:

Yes

Other Dogs: Loves all dogs, big and small! Loves to chase and play.
Cats:

Don't know, no cats in foster home. She is very calm and gentle so I doubt it would be an issue, but this would require a testing.

Children:

There are not any children in the foster home but Annie is very calm and gentle. I am guessing she would be great with children.

Leash:

Annie is slightly nervous about having her neck touched so I doubt she would like a collar around her neck. I have been using a side-pull harness which goes around her body and connects at her chest. She has done great. She does not pull at all and stays with me.

Personality:

Annie is a gentle giant. She is calm, sweet, and very loving. She loves all people and dogs, but she is slightly unsure of herself and nervous. She's been in three foster homes in the past week (because of her transition to Colorado), so wouldn't you be a bit nervous? Annie is a very easy dog to have around,especially compared to her very hyper foster brother. Annie is extremely affectionate and loves nothing more than sit close to her foster dad or cuddle up. With her temperament, she could be someone's couch companion, but with her body type, she could be someone's half-marathon training partner.

Story:

Annie is a rescue from New Mexico. We don't know much about her past but it seems like she probably had someone who loved her. It appears that someone put time into training her. She knows sit, shake, and come (yet they are a little shakey and she is working on reminder training in her foster home and doing great). She has had zero potty accidents, no chewing accidents, and she knows not to go on the furniture (even though she is welcome to in her foster home).

Thanks to Skyler for being a great foster to Annie!!!

Samson

How to sponsor me


   

                       
Rescued on: 4/9/2014
Age: 7 Years
Breed: Lab Mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: About 85 lbs, but he could stand to lose a little weight.
House Trained:

Yes

Other Dogs: In his past life, Samson was an only dog. He's not quite sure how to play, but he gets really excited around his foster brother and sisters and tries to play with them. So far he will run around the yard in circles with them. He's not aggressive whatsoever with other dogs. Since he's not sure how to engage in playing, sometimes he pushes other dogs with his nose or greets them in an over-excited manner. Younger dogs don't seem to mind this, but older dogs who don't want to play aren't too thrilled with him. He's learning how to interact with them though!
Cats:

TBD

Children:

His previous family had a younger child, who they said he did fine with. He does have a lot of energy though and is pretty big, so he might knock a toddler over inadvertently.

Leash:

The few times he's been on a leash he's been ok. However, if there's something that he really needs to see or stop to smell, he will try as hard as can to do it.

Personality:

Samson lived his whole 7 years with the same family. Coming to Colorado and living in a different environment where everything is new has kind of thrown him off his routines. He was extremely anxious the first few days, but he is calming down and settling in. He doesn't have a mean bone in his body, he is very excitable and wants to play a lot. He knows how to play tug of war and he likes to play ball. He even throws the ball back to you once he catches it! (he's by no means obsessed with the ball, but does like to play it a few times a day).

Story:

Samson is an owner surrender from Kansas. They couldn't give him the attention he needed anymore, so they gave him up to the rescue.

Thanks to Jo & Paul for being great fosters to Peter!!!

                    Herman

How to sponsor me

 

                       
Rescued on: 4/18/2014
Age: 2 years approx
Breed:  Labrador Retriever
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 52lbs. He is very underweight! Needs to gain about 20-25lbs
House Trained:

Yes! No accidents in the house at all. He only signals in the morning when he needs to go out. Otherwise, I take him out around noon and in the evening and he does his business then.

Other Dogs: There are no other dogs at our place. He is very interested in other dogs and will pull toward them while on the leash. His foster in KC said he was good with her dogs.
Cats:

Has not been observed with cats but he showed a great deal of interest in a rabbit we came across on our walk.

Children:

TBD

Leash:

We have him on a short leash and he zigs and zags around and does a loop every once in a while. He pulls and whines when he sees other dogs.

Personality:

Herman is a very smart and sweet dog. He follows me from room to room and will lay down when he thinks I’ll be in the room for a while. He loves to be loved on but isn’t in your face about it.

Every so often he will walk over and put his head in your lap for some pets and ear rubs. He’s quick to roll on his back for a belly rub. Herman sleeps on the bed at night after he was invited up but hasn’t tried to get on any other furniture. If he’s not sleeping on the bed, he is sleeping next to it. He knows “sit” very well and learned very quickly that he needs to sit for his food and when we put on and take off his leash. He alert barked the first night when he heard unfamiliar sounds from our upstairs neighbors. He hasn’t chewed on anything other than a nylabone and is not a fan of the crate. He rides in the car very well, laying down after a few minutes. Herman has a scar on his right leg and sometimes favors it while walking, he kind of skips a step or two on 3 legs and then keeps going. He’s getting that leg checked out so make sure everything is ok. Herman is a medium level energy but when he’s at home, he’s quick to lay down and snooze. Loud noises don’t frighten him. He was laying in the kitchen when the blender was turned on and he got up to come investigate before laying down again! He knows not to beg for food and takes treats very gently.

Herman saw the vet and was cleared to be a walking or swimming buddy! But he won't be a runner. He was probably hit by a car a year ago and fractured both back legs and his pelvis. He's got some arthritis in his right hip. He had surgery on both legs including an FHO on the right. 

Story:

Herman is a rescue from Missouri. He apparently walked into a lobby at a city hospital and laid down.

Thanks to Marchelle for being great fosters to Herman!!

The following dogs are NOT RMLR Dogs. We assume no responsibility for these dogs.
You must contact the listed party if interested

 Shall

Shall is a gorgeous, calm, energetic, neutered male black lab who is 5 years old.  He has been adopted out by the shelter several times and returned for reasons that are not his fault. He needs an active loving home. He is located near Grand Junction. Please contact Deb Fairchild if interested in this pretty boy 970-210-0482.


 DEUCE

His name is Deuce and he is around 3 years old. He originally entered our shelter 11/15/2013. He has been adopted and returned twice now and neither instance was due to anything that he did wrong--the first was a family that had him for two months and chose to return him to our shelter when they found out they were expecting a new child and the second time he was adopted with the intention to train him to become a search and rescue animal and he was returned when he did not pass the training.

He is a happy, healthy young man with tons of energy and potential to make an excellent dog for an experienced owner. He does need some training as far as his obedience goes but he loves treats and attention so basic commands shouldn't be a problem.

He likes other dogs but he does play a little rough. We have him in play groups each morning, however, and haven't had any issues. He just wants to romp and play.
A dog with this much energy should not be in a kennel for the better part of four months but, unfortunately, that is Deuce's situation. He has so much love and energy to share with anyone that is lucky enough to meet him.

Please contact Rescue Coordinator
Cheyenne Animal Shelter if you are interested in Deuce

 


           

  JACK

Hi my name is Jack. I am a two year old Black Lab. I am neutered, micro chipped, and have no dew claws. I am a very good boy and I am house-trained. I really love cats to the point that I really should not be around them. I am okay with certain dogs. If you choose to take me home with you, I have to meet your other furry kids first. I love my foster family very much and would love to stay in contact with them. So if you want to meet me call the Laramie Peak Humane Society @ 358-6475 so we can set up a time with my foster family to meet!

 


  LOKI

Hey there! I am Loki. An eight month old neutered Black Lab. Full of energy and will hug you the moment I see you because I have yet to learn my general manners but I do understand basic commands. I am hoping to find a home with a big yard and tall fence and someone to keep up with me! I sit here not so patiently but am ready to go. So PLEASE Call Laramie Peak Humane Society @ 358-6475 to take me to my furever home, I can’t wait to meet you!!!

 


  CHARLIE

SALT LAKE CITY, UT: Charlie is starting to lose hope. Like humans, lack of consistent friendship and companionship takes its toll on a dog's emotional health. 

Charlie is a 10 year old chocolate Labrador retriever who is down and out. As much as his shelter volunteers try their best to give each animal the time and attention they need, it's just simply not enough nor comparable to a good home.

Lynn wrote, "Charlie loves to be around people and loved on. He is currently in boarding and he is getting depressed. We have walkers that go to the boarding facility a few times a week and [he] usually hops up to greet them with a tail wag. Lately he's just been lifting his head to look at them and then lies back down. He needs to get out of boarding and into a loving foster home or even better an adoptive home. [Since] he needs to be an only dog it is making it difficult to find a foster home for him to get him out of boarding. 

In a perfect world, Charlie will be adopted by a family where someone is home most of the time. He does prefer a calm environment but is learning that loud noises are not a bad thing. He is great with children [but] needs to be an only dog. Charlie is house trained and crate trained. He walks nicely on a leash and enjoys a neighborhood stroll once a day."

Charlie wants his parent. He wants someone who he can trust and feel loved by. He wants consistent companionship. If you are local to the Utah area and can meet Charlie at his shelter, please contact CAWS - Community Animal Welfare Society by emailing dogs@caws.org.

Imagine the love you'll receive from Charlie just by being is #1 human!

 


 LIBBY

Libby is a 9 year old lab/corgi mix. She is very very sweet, loving, and cuddly. My friend is looking for a home for her because she is moving. Libby has dug under fences before, but she would be perfect for someone that has an apartment. She is very good on the leash, doesn't pull at all. I haven't heard her bark much. All the dogs she has met she gets along with, she is very passive. She chases cats. Libby has no health issues that we are aware of. She is potty trained. When she was first adopted from the pound she did have anxiety and would shake if left along for too long, but my friend says she has improved. I don't believe she has ever chewed anything up. If interested, 928 533 0998.

 


 

Have a beautiful Lab/Collie female 1.2 years old. Still in puppy stage. 60-70 lbs.

This dog is in need of active children, or someone who runs, or to be trained as a bird dog or a herding/working dog (loves water and birds totally focused). She has tremendous potential to be many things.

She is an excellent companion on her own and eager to please. She is obedient and a fast learner. House trained and a good eater, has no medical problems.

She has been raised this past year with a 3 year old girl and two small dogs. Loves both

She is loving and cuddly playful. Likes to stay with the pack not a loner dog loves companionship

All shots current, spayed, heartworm meds, chipped

Downfalls:

Our stagnant lifestyle is not conducive to her breed which has resulted in boredom and some bad behavior. I don’t think it is her necessarily but the environment she is living in. Apartment living would not be good unless there is a lot of activity (like someone who runs). At dog parks - seems to be terrified of dogs her own size or larger. She acts tough then yelps loudly if they come close (??).  When left alone and gets bored she likes to chew on tree roots, remotes, phones, and computer mouse (plastic items) never destroys anything if people are present.

MOLLY        

Hi - My name is Molly.  I am a 2 year old petite female Black Lab.  I came from a very scary place in Arkansas that was supposed to be a rescue, but the lady who ran it was a hoarder and had 60+ dogs running around out of control.  As a result, I became very scared and had to either fight or die.  I am now scared that other dogs will attack me, so I sometimes attack them first.  I am working with a trainer and she says I could not be sweeter and I am becoming better every day in getting over my fear of other dogs.  I have even played a little with another dog!  Everyone who meets me says I am such a sweet and loving girl, a great cuddler, and they can’t help but fall in love with me!  I love to be with people and kids.  They make me happy and feel safe.  I need that special and patient adopter or foster who will continue my training (courtesy of Lucky Day) and, believe in me and help me become that well-adjusted and confident pup with other dogs that I know I can be.  I know that I will be the best dog ever once I am past my fear of other dogs.  Are you my special person who will take a chance on me?  If you are, please call Kelley at (970) 379-4606.  I promise to reward you with love and be forever grateful!

 


 Osyrus 

Sweet, loving, 9 year-old chocolate lab is need of a caring new home.  "Osyrus" is perfect for an individual or family who can provide attention and love.  He has a few issues with anxiety, so patience and a doggy-door is a must.  Recently completed full health exam and is perfectly healthy.  Great with kids, adults and other pets.

 Two Missing Male Chocolate Labs

We lost our 2 male chocolate labs on 9/27/13. 2 men saw them and picked them up and tried to take them to a shelter in Fort Scott, KS. The shelter turned them away but didn't take any of their information. I have no idea where they are now or where to even look for my dogs. We live on a farm and out dogs like to explore. They don't wear collars since they get caught on fencing as well as they pull the collars off each other. They aren't microchipped either. Their names are Hershey and Henry. They are 11 months old and very friendly and sweet. Hyper too. Please let us know if you've seen them or heard of any shelters with them. Thanks, Sarah Stoughton

Taco Please contact: Theresa Fletcher, 970-596-6669 or theresafletcher79@gmail.com


Taco is an approx 10 year old male chocolate lab.   Taco is a complete human lover and enjoys getting lots of pets and attention. He needs a home where he is the only other animal.  Taco is extremely aggressive towards other dogs. We think he may have been attacked at some point, and although he has been living with 2 other dogs for the past 8 years, he gets along with them but not any others.He is extremely loyal and would much rather sit at your feet receiving affection than playing outdoors. Taco would love a fenced in yard for times when he is outside, so that he can roam and you won't have to be worried about him getting mad at other dogs walking by. When outdoors, he loves playing fetch for sticks and balls. Taco does not like cats or any other animals that we have seen so far. Taco is an early to bed type and a late sleeper. He is not anxious to go outside before the sun comes up or if it's too cold. Taco LOVES children and any other human for that matter. He is very gentle with children, except if they try to give him food. He will sometimes scare children because he grabs at food really quickly. Taco is an excellent leash dog.
           
           


 DOLLY
Contact  anelsen328@gmail.com for information

Dolly is a very sweet lab mix. She loves going on walks, hikes and being around people. Dolly needs a family that is active and around the house most of the day. Dolly has separation anxiety at times and does better when she is around her family often throughout the day. She can be left alone for some time without problems but is much happier with people. She gets along with everyone. She loves cats and
small animals, and gets along with most dogs. She has never bitten a person or animal and does not have a mean bone in her body. She has a lot of energy and really needs a family that can keep up with her. The more exercise she gets the less anxiety she has when left alone. She is potty and crate trained, however she has been able to get out of almost every crate when her anxiety occurs. Recently she has been staying in the house alone when we are gone. She knows basic commands and some fun tricks. She is very smart and learns very easily. We are very sad to give her up but we are very busy and can not give her the time and attention that she deserves.

HUNTER
              

 
Hi, my name is Hunter and I'm searching for a family to call my own. I'm a friendly and active, 45lb, 1 year old Lab/Boxer mix. I’m a good boy and I don’t potty in the house. I know how to sit, lay down and I'm learning how to shake. You'll know when I'm happy because my whole body wags. I enjoy playing with dogs and toys, but not cats. I walk well on a leash and love going for walks. My dream home would have a fenced in yard, another dog to play with, and humans that like to snuggle. I've been neutered, fully vaccinated and microchipped. Email info@mhhr.org or visit my webpage to learn more about adopting me. http://www.mhhr.org/available-for-adoption/hunter




BABY GIRL



Dear Kind Humans,

My name is Baby Girl. You may have seen me around before. I've been in the pound in Marlinton, WV for almost a year. Many of you have shared my photos and some of you have even written to rescues about me. I'm very grateful but I wanted to let you know that, unfortunately, I'm still here and still in need of your help.

I'd like to tell you a little about me and ask that you do me one more favor. In my younger days, I did not receive much attention or training from the people who kept me in their yard so I never learned how to be friends with other animals. I'm a bright girl so I could probably be taught to interact properly but for now I'd just like to have some humans of my own all to myself--someone who will give me a real home and love me without condition.

If you know such a person, please tell them that I've not given up hope yet and continue to wait for them. I do like small humans but sometimes I forget not to bounce and bump into them so a home with medium-sized or larger kiddos might be best. I'm outgoing and extremely friendly so spending time with people is something I truly enjoy! I'm always up for some fun playtime and, with a little practice, I would be a fantastic walking or jogging partner, too!

You may be wondering why a vibrant, attractive Lab mix like me hasn't already been sprung from the pound. Well, that brings me to the favor I want to talk to you about. Lots and lots of rescues have been asked to take me these past 11 months, but they would need to have me stay in a foster home until my forever home was found. Fosters are such awesome folks that they usually help more than one dog at a time (and have their own dogs) and I'm just not feeling up to much canine companionship right now so no rescue has been able to help me in that way. But I had this idea... Would you do me a favor and not ask the rescues to take me but ask them to courtesy post me on their PetFinder page? There aren't many people living nearby to my area so I've been unable to find the home I need. Rescues are in towns that have way more people than here so perhaps my future guardian lives there and would see me and then I could finally be someone's baby girl for real! The rescue can use my photos and bio here:http://www.petfinder.com/petdetail/25703512/

When my new mom or dad sees me they should email asapwva@gmail.com and they'll make all the arrangements of getting me ready for and getting me to my long-awaited home! Thank you, Kind Humans!

Love,

Baby Girl


ROLO


I am helping a friend look to rehome their 10 year old black lab. Rolo was raised as a puppy by his family, but bit their 14 month old baby on the face last week. The baby grabbed his face when she lost her balance, but both parents saw it happen and think it was an accident on Rolo's part. The family recently lost their 15 and 13 year old dogs to old age and think Rolo was not feeling himself. 

I've been holding Rolo for the family so that they can settle back at home with the baby, but as the mom is 7 months pregnant, they're not willing to risk a 2nd bite- accident or not.

Rolo is a lean field-bred black lab, very active, sweet, great off leash, house trained and mellow. I've not witnessed any aggression from him other than occasional barking. His shots are up to date. Ne is located in Steamboat Springs. Please email for more info-julia.myers4@gmail.com.

 

SHADOW


Hi there my name is Shadow or now known as Frodo!  You would think that I was a young pup, due to my active and loving nature.  I am an 8 year old nuetered black bear coat Sharpei, microchipped, up to date on all vaccinations, a little man-shy, have a kind demeanor, love cuddling on the couch, house-leash-and crate trained, good with children and dogs.  I am looking for someone who will take me on long walks and make me part of their family.  I used to jump the fence, but with daily exercise, a routine, and help from my trainer and foster mom I am doing well.  I would also do well living in an apartment with an active person that could take me on daily walks. Then there would be no chance of me jumping the fence.  My family was unable to take care of Oso and I any longer or give us what we needed, but they did want to give us a chance with someone that could.  Oso has found a good forever home and now I am looking for a good one too. 
 
You can contact Alison, Shadow/Frodo's foster directly for more information via email:  alisonkap@yahoo.com or phone: 303-669-1317 .  You can also see him:  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pc8rPeL3H5c   Thank You!
 
PRINCE

Prince is a handsome lab/hound mix approximately 7 years old.  Here's a few words from his foster family:

 

He is the most "people" loving lab I know!  He gets along with other dogs in general but is much more into being with his people.  Even people who walk by on the street or at the dog park...he wants to be everyone's friend!  He is the perfect dog for someone who is more laid back.  He has enjoyed the short hikes we have taken him on and showed no signs of being tired, but we haven't done anything longer than 5 miles.  When he is inside the house he pretty much just wants to sleep all the time, preferably close to wherever his people are.  While on walks he has done well meeting other dogs and almost everyone we walk by comments on how adorable his floppy hound ears are!  His biggest downsides are that he doesn't have great recall (probably the hound in him), he sniffs everything on walks, and he doesn't seem to be too fond of puppies.  He tolerates them if they keep their distance but the ones that jump all over him make him grumpy and he sometimes growls at them.   Like the majority of Labs and Goldens, he does have some skin issues and will need a monthly bath to prevent him from getting itchy.

So, if you are looking for a mellow, easy keeper, he is your guy!  Must love floppy hound dog ears!

DELILAH


Delilah is a sweetheart who just wants to be everyone’s best friend.  She LOVES to play—with people, with dogs (little breeds especially), with cats—whoever gives her the chance. She is very high energy, but exercise her thoroughly and she’s very manageable at home, and will work hard for treats (we taught her to lie down this way).  Her main challenge has been the separation anxiety which cropped up since being re-homed; she barks and barks because she thinks we forgot her!  A home with another dog (ideally energetic enough to keep up and play) might help with her anxiety.  She loves peanut butter and canned dog food—we’ve had some luck leaving her for short periods, as long as there’s a toy stuffed with frozen food to keep her busy.  Her previous home had multiple dogs which we think might be the best situation for her.  At the very least, she would like a home with someone around most of the day, or whose lifestyle allows her to come along on errands. Contact  BWSpier@aol.comfor more info

 MAYA


Owner died, husband didn't want her any more" would be a sad epitaph for this Tombstone, Arizona Labrador, named Maya. But that's how this 11 year old dog ended up back at the small town's volunteer animal shelter. Maya has a little joint pain (you would, too, if you were her age!) and eats Science Diet Senior dog food to compensate. But there's no way she can compensate for being discarded by her former owner, or facing another Saturday without visitors (the facility is only open for a few hours on Saturdays). For now, the volunteers will have to try to explain why she's lost her home. (520) 457-2545


DECKER



Decker is a 4.5 month old golden/Lab mix puppy.

 

He would enjoy an adult only home, or one with older children. He is a smart boy and is already crate and housetrained. He knows his name (Rookie) and many commands- sit, down, release, and ok. He loves to fetch the ball, go for walks, and play with his foster brother! He might be able to go to a home with a dog savvy cat. He does pretty well, but does chase them on occasion, though he respects the cat as well.

 

Please remember that GRFR adopts puppies to forever families who have sufficient time at home to socialize, house train and nurture their new puppy. Also note: puppies should not leave your yard or be exposed to any other dogs unless you are certain that such other dogs have been fully vaccinated and are older than six months.

 

They should not go to parks or Petsmart or anywhere else until they have their last booster shot, as they could contract a potentially lethal virus. Before taking your puppy to puppy class please discuss vaccination requirements for various classes with your trainer or vet. Puppies often need a few dewormers and we encourage you to discuss this with your vet.
