Vernon

How to sponsor me

       
                                                       
Rescued on: 2/19/14
Age: 7 yrs
Breed: Black Lab Mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 75 lbs
House Trained: Yes.  Vernon has learned to use the dog door.
Other Dogs: Vernon gets along 95% of the time with our 11yo male lab.  He is sometimes competitive over resources: food, water, attention.  He is working on becoming more comfortable around other dogs. We are working with a trainer on his anxiety around other dogs.  His trainer feels this is something that he will be able to overcome, but his new family will need to be aware of his history.  As a result of his history, Vernon would likely do best in a single dog family.
Cats: Not sure.
Children: Not sure, but with his behavioral history, he’d likely be best in a household without young children.
Leash: Vernon is fine on the leash.  He periodically pulls and sniffs, but is easily corrected with a “let’s go”.
Personality:

In late April, Vernon was diagnosed with anxiety and a compulsive disorder. Working with trainers and veterinarians,much progress has been made to help Vernon. Regular exercise, attention, and routine, coupled with daily medication,have eliminated his compulsive behavior. He has come so far in the last months – his sweetheart personality has had the chance to shine through! He takes naps in the sun and finally has the opportunity to relax and be a dog.

Vernon has completed a basic obedience class and knows sit, down, stay, watch me, come, and wait.  He enjoys going on walks, is good in the car,and is happiest whenever he is near his people. Vernon is what my dad always called a “sooner”, meaning he’d “sooner” be with you than anywhere else.

Vernon needs hip surgery, and RMLR will cover the cost. His new family will have to continue to work with Vernon around his history of anxiety and compulsive behavior. However, this investment will certainly be worth the lifetime of love,loyalty, and fun that Vernon has to give.
Story: Vernon is a rescue from Oklahoma.
Thanks to Matt and Chrissy for being great fosters to Vernon!!

Dudley


How to sponsor me

 

                      
Rescued on: 5/23/2014
Age: 3-4 years
Breed: Lab Mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: TBD
House Trained: TBD
Other Dogs: YES
Cats: TBD 
Children:  TBD
Leash: TBD
Personality: Dudley is very social and very loyal.  He has no problem showing affection.  He gets along with other dogs, also.  He loves to go on walks and car rides.   Dudley craves his human to be near most of the day as he believes his human to be his best buddy!  A high fence is required if Dudley is to be unsupervised in the yard.  He can jump high and wide.  He will go looking for his human, if he feels he has been abandoned.  Dudley has an issue with "marking" his territory that he's trying hard to stop.   He likes to please, but sometimes he has trouble breaking this bad habit.  He is almost there (it is likely that his time in the shelter and transportation and instability have negatively impacted him resulting in this behavior).  Dudley is a fun dog.  Sometimes, it sounds like he is trying to "talk" and has been a joy to be around.  This foster parent will miss him when he finds his forever family.

Rescued on: 6/13/14
Age: 3-5 years
Breed: English Lab
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 86lbs
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Good but will try to feel out/ set dominance.  I would recommend for adoption with a strong alpha-human with either a submissive or no other dog
Cats: no
Children: Probably would do best with slightly older kids, since he is so big and strong.
Leash: He is a strong boy and likes to pull, and will try to chase cats if he sees them.   He will need someone strong and confident on the other end of his leash, preferably a man - since he seems to listen and respond to men much better than to women.  He is a clever escape artist and a high flight risk, so using a sturdy harness when outside is a must.
Personality:  Kong loves toys and fetching the ball, and his favorite activities are riding in the car and going on walks.  He is still a bit skittish about some things, and we are working on improving manners like begging and becoming excitable.  He knows how to sit and will return and drop the ball when playing fetch.  He seems to be crate trained and potty trained, and is not a barker.  He has a very strong prey drive, so no cats and or other small pets.  Kong is a high flight risk and a clever escape artist, and is an expert at slipping thru gaps in fences and bolting thru open doors.  We think that when he escapes, he is probably trying to get back to the family that he was separated from, as is sadly the case with so many stray dogs.  His new forever home will need to have a sturdy 6' fence or taller, with strong gates and latches, and no fence gaps. His adopters will need to be dedicated and vigilant about keeping him safe.  He responds very well to men, and obeys them much more than he does with women.  His perfect home might be a strong active man who would enjoy a loyal running/hiking companion.  If you are looking for a wonderful dog to share outside adventures with, Kong could be your new best friend.

Smoke is a beautiful, sleek black lab mix.  His coat is thick and shiny and doesn’t seem to shed verymuch.  He wasn’t familiar with lifein a home until he got to his foster home.  He learned quickly that life with a family inside is reallygreat - he was quickly house trained.  He is shy when he firstmeets people however will warm up with patience and treats.   Once he has gotten to know you, he is an absolutesnuggler.  He knows basic commandslike sit, down, wait, and come. He plays well with our 4 year old lab.  They like to tumble and tug with a toy-(surprisingly quietly).  He likesto play fetch - sitting on command patiently waiting until we throw thetoy.  After a little playtime, helikes to take a nap.  If invited;he prefers to be with you on the couch. He does a great job of notifying us if there is someone at the doorhowever is easily calmed down when assured everything is all right.   We are working on crate trainingfor when we are not home.  It seemsto be going well.  He doesn’t needthe crate when we are home.  Hesleeps quietly on his dog bed in our room at night.   Smoke is so ready for his forever home.  He has put in a request for a playmatein his new home if possible.

Remington


How to sponsor me

                                                    

Rescued on: 7/7/14
Age: 4 years
Breed: Black Lab mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 55lbs
House Trained:

Remington is very well house trained

Other Dogs:

Remington has been living in a home with Charlie since he was a puppy.

Cats:

Remington has never lived with cats so would recommend him not being in a house with a cat since we do not know how he would react.

Children:

Remington loves kids, he lives in a home with a 10 year old and an 11 month old.

Leash:

Remington is very good on leash. He doesn’t pull and will walk right beside you.

Personality:

Remington is a shy dog at first but will open up within a matter of minutes. He likes to scope out a person before he gives them kisses, we think that had to do with when he lived at a shelter. But now he is a lover and is calmer than some labs. 


Remington comes a family that had another dog and two kids. Both whom he grew up with since he was a puppy and they adopted him from a shelter. He has always been a shy dog but never aggressive. He just likes to make sure that person is a good person before he smothers them in kisses! He loves chasing bunnies and going to the dog park. He knows, sit, stay and lay down. He loves laying on the couch with you and having his belly rubbed. He is just an easy, laid back, calmer version of what most labs are. He would thrive best in a home with kids and/or another dog since that is what he’s used to, however a home with active owners who will take him to the dog park would also be a great option! Either way he is a sweet little gem!

Rescued on: 7/4/14
Age: 4 years
Breed: Yellow Lab
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 95 lbs
House Trained:

Charlie is very well house trained

Other Dogs:

Charlie has been living in a home with Remington since he was a puppy. He gets along great with other dogs

Cats:

Charlie has never lived with cats so would recommend him not being in a house with a cat since we do not know how he would react.

Children:

Charlie loves kids, he lives in a home with a 10 year old and an 11 month old

Leash:

Charlie gets excited when walks or dog parks are happening, he tends to pull slightly at the beginning of his walk but after a few minutes he relaxes and walks beside you.

Personality:

Charlie is your typical lab. He is full of energy and excitement. He will play fetch with you but once he gets that ball, sometimes he doesn’t bring it back! He is fun loving and such a goofball. He rolls in the grass like a child might do. He loves car rides and just loves being around people and other dogs. 

Charlie is a high energy dog that requires someone who also has high energy. He can be calm but only after a walk or a trip to the dog park! He is fun loving and will melt your heart with his slobbery kisses. He thinks he’s a lap dog and will try and sit on you! Just your typical lab! He tends to jump at times, but only in extreme excitement so even though he lives with kids we would recommend older lids, just in case. He will bark when he wants something but never will bark just to bark. Usually it means it’s time to feed him! Gotta love labs, they are food driven! Charlie is a great spirit and is ready for the next chapter!

Cats: TBD
Children: Kramer is energetic, but has done well with the small kids he has met.

He is doing ok walking on leash and we are working with him on this 

Personality:

Kramer is the perfect Colorado dog! He is a happy, active pup who loves to be outside. Kramer is an incredibly fast runner and is in his element running with other dogs at the dog park. He would do great being a member of an active family or with someone who loves the outdoors as much as he does!

While Kramer is an energetic boy, he is also very sweet and loving. He is friendly and loves people and attention. Kramer sleeps well in his crate and also uses it as a den when he needs his own space. 

He is very smart and knows several commands, including sit, shake, and out. According to his previous foster, he is afraid of fireworks and thunderstorms, although we have not noticed any unusual reactions from him. He is not food or toy aggressive.

Dixon

How to sponsor me


 

Rescued on: 7/9/14
Age: 7-8 years
Breed: Lab mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 100 lbs
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Very good! On walks Dixon has greeted other dogs appropriately and with a wagging tail. He lives very well with our dog, who is quite particular about other dogs. Dixon is just so easy going! He has shown no aggression to other dogs.
Cats: Good! He has sniffed our cat a few times but mostly just leaves him alone.
Children: Good! We don't have children but he has been great when meeting the neighborhood children.
Leash:

Dixon walks great on leash! We saw a rabbit the other dog and he perked up but didn't go after it.

Personality:

Dixon embodies what it means to be a gentle giant! It is obvious he has had a rough past but despite it all, he is extremely sweet, loving, mild-mannered and easy going. Dixon has a heart of gold and would love a family to give him a forever loving home-- you will get back what you give tenfold with Dixon! 

It is so clear that Dixon was very loved at some point as he really desires to be with 'his people' (as most labs do!). Dixon is an older guy and doesn't need much exercise. A short walk once a day would be enough. Ideally he would love a home where someone works from home, or was a stay at home parent as we've seen some signs of separation anxiety (I think Dixon knows how good he has it compared to the shelter and doesn't want to lose this great new lease on life!). Dixon would happily sit next to you while you work at home, or wander around with you and help with chores or kids! He is a humans companion! Ideally he would be in a house with minimal stairs as he has signs of sore hips and generally avoids stairs. However, if it was one or two flights of stairs a day he could manage that. 

They say true beauty comes from within and Dixon is a perfect example! It's true he won't be winning beauty contests anytime soon but I hope you can see past the outside signs of a previous rough life, and see a dog that craves love and would be a wonderful addition to almost any home.

Story Dixon was found as a stray in Kansas, nothing is known about his life before being in a shelter. It is very obvious someone loved him a lot as he desires to be with 'his people,' is house trained and knows basic commands. How he ended up as a stray is beyond me! 

Dixon currently has some hair loss by his rump and back legs. We believe this is due to the stress of the antibiotics he was on (for fleas and ticks) while also being in a shelter environment. I imagine the hair will grow back once he is in a stable and loving environment! 

Dixon also tested positive for heartworm when he arrived at the shelter in Kansas and has received treatments. He continues to receive heartworm treatment on the 11th of every month and he will need to be retested on December 12th, 2014.
Thanks to Nora and Brandon for being great fosters to Dixon!!

Cooper

How to sponsor me


 

Rescued on: 7/12/14
Age: 8 years
Breed: Lab mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 75 lbs
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Cooper loves other dogs but doesn’t know how to play with them too well. He would also do very well being an only dog.
Cats: Unknown
Children: Cooper loves children of all ages and is gentle and unstarteled by their hugs and sporadic movement. When Cooper is in full play mode, however, he can often forget there are children around him and plow them over unintentionally.
Leash:

Cooper is AMAZING on a leash. We often have our 3 ½ year old hold his leash on walks with no issues whatsoever.

Personality:

Cooper has so much love to give and truly has a heart of gold. He loves to snuggle closely with anyone that will have him and is a constant companion. He is an active Lab that loves long walks, the occasional run and playing tug-of-war with stuffed toys - which he much prefers to playing fetch. He is amazing with children of all ages, is a gem on leash, is very smart, so friendly, and generally listens very well.

While Cooper’s background is but a mystery, it can be assumed that his life wasn’t always ideal. His tongue is split in two places which makes it more difficult to efficiently drink water and eat his food (but he gets by just fine, he’s just a tad slow and messy at times!) – in fact, he didn’t even know how to eat out of a bowl  when he first came to us. We also discovered that he has buck shot in his back from an xray at the vet. Cooper has anxiety when left alone that causes him to be destructive. While we are currently seeking the best treatment for his issue, Cooper would thrive living with someone that works from home, is retired, or can be with him until his anxiety issues have cleared. We also feel that being matched with someone who has more land than the average city lot would be beneficial for him – not because he needs the extra space to run, but rather explore and roam.

Cooper also suffers from a rather strange, unidentified allergy that causes his nose to run. While this is not contagious at all, it’s a little gross at times but is cleared up immediately when brushed and given a bath. Now that we have found the “cure” for his allergy, it just takes dedication to keeping the guy extra clean which he doesn’t mind at all!

Despite Cooper’s quirks which truly round out much of his charm, once his anxiety has been treated successfully, Cooper will be a fantastic companion - a perfect side kick for any adventure or lazy lounge day. Cooper looks forward to meeting you!!

Rescued on: 7/4/14
Age: 2 years
Breed: Lab mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: 70 pounds, needs to gain a few more
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Probably
Cats: No
Children: Yes
Leash:

A wonderful walking companion! Loves a lazy stroll around the block or several mile hike all the same! Doesn’t pull or jump on people, stays the course.

Personality:

Hi I’m Hodor! My foster parents didn’t get the Games Of Throne reference though, so they call me Major…..as in Major Sweetheart, Major Snuggler, and Major Goofball. I’m a BIG BOY—even though I still need to gain a few pounds I am a very large lab. The vet thinks that I am possibly a purebred and my foster mom loves my giant block head and huge brown eyes. I love to snuggle with my people and know that nighttime is for calm but when it’s time for play, I am still a bit of a puppy. I love to “talk” to people! I don’t bark much, but I have a lot to say with my silly language. I had a home at some point—I know how to sit and shake and I’m house trained, but since I somehow ended up as a stray, I am really nervous the world is going to give up on me. I like to be right next to my people—my foster mom takes me lots of places and I stay very close to her—I prefer to ride in the carseat right next to her, wait outside the shower doors, and stay next to her feet in the kitchen when she cooks. I’ll go into my crate when I have to be home alone, but I am SO happy to see my people when they get back! I am so grateful to have been saved and I will be incredibly loyal to my forever family.

I started off being afraid of the cats in my foster home but once I saw that they are furry creatures that like to run away from me, I thought chasing them was a fun game--I would like a home without cats so I’m not tempted. I love my foster sister and we wrestle and play constantly, but she lets me get away with too much because she’s so passive—I need to be around confident dogs that will tell me when I’m being a silly puppy and need to stop or leave them alone. I would also do really well as an only dog, having my people all to myself. I have seen birds and bunnies on walks and I seem to know that chasing them isn’t an option. 

When I came to Colorado, I was very underweight and had lost a great deal of fur. I’ve been putting on weight like a champ though and my fur is starting to grow back into a beautiful shiny black coat. I am on some meds that are helping me with that and I’ll need one more check-up to make sure this condition has cleared-up and was just due to stress. I’m so happy to be getting the food and care I need now! I’ve stolen my foster mom’s heart so much that she wishes she could keep me but since she needs to save more dogs, she promised me that she is going to be very picky and make sure that I get the very best forever home! I love to play with the kids here (8,10,14) and while I prefer to stay off of the furniture, I do enjoy being allowed on the bed at night. 

Come meet me and let me show you my tricks and my big friendly face!  I’ll steal your heart!

Rescued on: 7/9/14
Age: 5 years
Breed: Lab mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes - July 1st 2014
Size: Med to large: 63lbs on arrival but needs to gain weight
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Seems to be no problem interaction with dogs on his walks
Cats: not tested yet, but feel like he will do just fine
Children: Great and gentle on the leash
Leash:

Very gentle soul, calm

Personality:

Zeeke came from KS and was found underweight. He seems to have had some good home in the past at some point as he is gentle and knows his commands. On the leash he will heel without command and at other times explore some but overall is a joy to walk. He is scared of thunderstorms and groaned at one time while inside hearing some thunder but with some talking to he settled right down. But his story is that he could bolt.  He does not bark much - only heard him a few times. He has not shown any type of aggressiveness. He loves his belly and back scratched! He does not like being put in the crate and broke out several times. At night he has been sleeping in the bedroom and has been comfortable and quiet and during the day he has been alone so far 1-2 hours without any issues.  He needs a home with a 6 foot privacy fence or will have to be on a leash at all times while outside.

Willie

Rescued on: 7/16/14
Age: 3 years
Breed: Lab mix
Sex: Male
Fixed: Yes
Size: Willie is a big boy. Someone loved him a little too much with food! He weighs around 100lbs, and needs to lose a little weight. He's not a small dog though and will still probably be 75-80lbs once he loses weight.
House Trained: Yes! No accidents at all!
Other Dogs: Willie does fine with his foster sisters and brother. He has tried to play some already on the first day, and as he gets more comfortable he will probably get even more playful! He would probably do fine in a house either with or without another dog.
Cats: He spent a few hours in a house with a cat and could have cared less about it.
Children: His foster doesn't have any children, but Willie is extremely mellow for a 3 year old. Even though he is a big boy, he is more of a teddy bear. He doesn't get overly excited about anything and his tail doesn't wag like crazy, so he would probably do fine with kids of all ages (I don't think he'd get excited enough about anything to accidentally knock a small child over, or anything like that).
Leash:

Not too bad. He did fine on a front pull harness. He really likes walks, which is good as he needs to get some exercise!

Personality:

If you are looking for a nice and mellow family dog, Willie is your guy! He likes to hang out, sit outside and sun himself, and sleep. He does get excited a few times a day when he wants to play. He will play with his foster brother and wants to run around with the humans. He doesn't know how to play ball or run after toys or chew on bones, but he will soon learn that those things are very fun! Once he loses a little weight, he may even have more energy to run and play. He is overweight and new to altitude, so he's taking it a little easy right now. 

Willie doesn't care about cats, and he would probably do really great with children. He doesn't seem like he has one mean bone in his body!

We're not sure if he knows any tricks yet. He does wonderful in the car, just lays down nicely. He is crate trained and has even gone in by himself just to hang out.

Sex: Female
Fixed:

yes

Size: med approximately 40 lbs.
House Trained:

yes. Crate trained. Doesn't jump on people or counters but will grab a place on the bed to watch TV with you but just tell her OFF,

Other Dogs:

Great! Has been sharing us with her foster brother Samson

Cats:

If they run she'll chase them 

Children:

loves kids. Texas fosters had kids

Leash:

Better with a gentle leader than a leash.  She would love to chase the rabbits and squirrels but a warning to "leave it" holds her back.  She is athletic and would be a great running partner.

Personality:

Spade is beautiful with a personality that will brighten your life. Can be shy around new people but once you take her for a walk she knows you're one of the " good guys". She is so smart and knows basic commands, sit, down, shake, etc.  Rick is teaching her how to crawl .  She loves to be petted and praised. She is definitely in charge when it comes to her foster brother who is 85 lbs. Her love of life and frisky personality will be a great addition to a family or individual with lots of love to share with this sweet girl !!

he has been great with other dogs, loves to meet them, sniff away then he's done.  Has started to play more like a dog, with Spade but she is the initiator.

Cats:

no experience here but pretty sure he would be ok with them.  Would probably just pay no attention to them.

Children:

absolutely great with kids of all ages.  Samson is big but really gentle.  Not a licker and does not jump on people. 

Leash:

no problem and loves his walks.  Doesn't pull on the leash but does like to stop and smell.  And when this dog stops, he stops!

Personality:

What a nice boy.  Gentle, quiet, loves to have his big head rubbed.  Will sit down next to you and sleep at your feet.  We don't think his previous life was all that great but it is great now.  Not great on commands but we are working on it.  He is food motivated and does know sit, down, off and stay.  Just wants to please! Doesn't mind his ears cleaned or his nails clipped. He will be great company for anyone who loves companionship or is looking for an addition to their family. We've loved fostering this gentle boy!

Story

he came from Oklahoma and was not given much care. The hair on his nose is sparse due to constantly poking it through a cyclone fence. He had a bare area and rash around his neck from being tethered with a choke collar. Given his lack of attention you would never know because he is such a loving GENTLEMAN. 

Thanks to Barbara & Rick for being great fosters Samson!!

Shorty


How to sponsor me

                      
Rescued on: 7/25/2014
Age: 8-10 years
Breed: Lab Mix
Sex: Female
Fixed: Yes
Size: small to medium-60 lbs
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Yes
Cats: Unknown
Children: Older Children
Leash: Very Good
Personality: Sweet and Mellow. She is mostly blind and is diabetic. WAIT! Don't rule her out! She was a stray and clearly belonged to a family. She is sweet and very mellow. She mapped out our house quickly and is learning how to do stairs. She is not jumpy and rarely barks. She greets other dogs appropriately. She loves toys that make noise but is not possessive of them. She loves to take walks and does not tug on the leash. She sleeps all night on a dog bed and does not need a kennel. Non destructive and easy going!

Top 5 reasons for adopting her:

5. She doesn't chase rabbits or cats!
4. She is mellow and will sit and be petted all day long! An excellent visiting companion for the elderly perhaps!
3. She loves a schedule! Goes out and does business on command, eats her meals same time every day and the shots are so easy to do, our 13 year old gives them!
2.Doesn't need a kennel! A couple nice comfy dog beds is all! Doesn't get on furniture!

And number 1? Look at her pictures! She is adorable! Softest ears ever! Too lovable to pass up!!
Story Shorty-aka Gracie is a rescue from New Mexico
Thanks to Chris, Amy and Ben for being a great foster to Shorty!!

Megan


How to sponsor me

                      
Rescued on: 7/22/2014
Age: 3 years
Breed: Lab Mix
Sex: Female
Fixed: Yes
Size: Medium - about 50-60 lbs.  Very athletic
House Trained: Yes
Other Dogs: Does fine in passing.  We don't have other dogs.
Cats: Not sure, but she's a big fan of bunny chasing!
Children: Not sure about younger children yet.  Would see her being a super pal to a child 8 or older.
Leash: Learning quickly.
Personality: Megan is a beautiful, sweet girl, with lots of love and energy.  We may begin calling her "Shadow" since she will follow you curiously just about everywhere.  She gets so excited when you love her up--seems a little affection starved.  She loves her ball and will chase it for hours, but she can also lay quietly on her bed while you watch a movie.  She knows some basic commands that just need some reinforcing: sit, down, stay.  Our house rules are dogs on the couch only by invitation and she learned that quickly, though reluctantly.  I think she would happily cuddle on the couch.  Stairs seemed to be new to her, but she's brave and is now taking them on like a champ.  Leash was new, but we've been using a harness and she's figuring things out quickly.  She likes her crate as a safe place when things get confusing.  No chewing, no barking, no jumping...very well-behaved for her age.  She is beautiful--her black coat just shines.  Megan is a great dog that should go to a great home.
Story Megan was found as a stray with no tags.  She spent some time at the Humane Society, apparently with one of her pups who went to a different rescue.  It has been a long couple of months for her and she's clearly happy to adjust to a more predictable environment.  She's a keeper and will make a wonderful forever family member
Thanks to the Matthews for being a great foster to Megan!!

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

 Hank


Hank is a 5 year old yellow lab mix. He is altered, up to date on his shots and microchipped. He is friendly with other dogs but has some defensive issues with toys and food. We think he might be best in a home with no other dogs or dogs that are very submissive. He seems to be better with dogs that are smaller than him as well. He is 60 pounds and tons of fun. He loves to play catch and will do it all day. He is potty and crate trained and will sit, stay, lay down, shake, fetch. He is super smart and loving. He just needs a proper introduction to other dogs as he can get too rough when playing.
Hank was in foster care and they had to give him back. He has been in boarding for a few months and is not doing well there at all. He needs his furever. He deserves his furever. Please contact me for information. Missy Redding Bull luv able Paws Rescue 817-793-2885 caligirl-missy@hotmail.com

 Sanders


We don't know much about Sanders past as he went into the shelter system as a stray in March 2014. Everybody knows that the big black dogs tend to get over looked at the shelter so Homes 4 Paws pulled him into rescue. He was in a foster home for 4 weeks before he was adopted out. Unfortunately he was returned 3 weeks later by his adopters because he was too much dog for them to handle.

Sanders is a big boy 4 year old at 110lbs. He is very sweet and loves his people. He knows "sit", "lay" and "rollover". He loves to fetch and he lives to play in the water! He is currently going through professional training to learn additional manners. He will need a home with an experienced large breed owner and he needs a home without cats.

Sanders adoption fee of $75 includes his neuter, all vaccines, heartworm test, current on heartworm and flea prevention and microchip. He will also come with a leash and collar and a bag of food. Adoption process and home visit does apply.

If interested in adopting or fostering Sanders please email or fill out an application at www.homes4paws.org.

Videos of Sanders can be seen on our YouTube channel. Link through our website.


 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.

LUNA - click to view flyer


She is a wonderful, fun dog and will go for miles, hiking, biking, running, swimming and snowshoeing. She knows lots of commands, and must have received some hunting training. She is eager to learn, eager to please. Gets along with people (including older kids, due to size & her tail), dogs and cats. Is housebroken and crate trained and has never destroyed anything that we didn't give her. We believe that she can be very happy in the right home. 


Chris


Labs are notorious lickers and lovers. They just want to be near you, be loyal, be your BFF (that's Best Friend Forever for those of you without teenagers). Chris, who is waiting for adoption at the Yavapai Humane Society in Prescott, Arizona, is a perfect example of the chocolate variety. He's a neutered male, 9 years old, described as "mannerly" by the shelter staff. Because the regular adoption kennels are full, he's in the Lost and Found section, not a great place to wait for you. At 87 pounds, this big hunk of a dog is not for everyone...he's for you! The Yavapai Humane Society is open Monday through Saturday 11 am - 5 pm, Sunday 11 am to 3 pm, closed on Tuesday. Chris is #22451342; remember, he's in the Lost and Found kennels.



 Potsie


Potsie is a 3 year old neutered male Lab/Beagle mix who weighs ~68 pounds. Potsie came to LHS as a stray so we don’t have any further information on his history. Potsie has been very anxious in the kennels at LHS, he barks, whines, drools, jumps and paces. He spent ~2 weeks in a foster home and the foster home reported that Potsie loves to be around people and play with dogs, he is affectionate, loves to go on hikes and knows basic commands. He is potty trained and was not destructive when left loose in the home although he does resist being crated. Potsie was interested in the cats in the home but did not pursue them. We are seeking rescue because Potsie is so stressed in the kennel environment and we are concerned that he will deteriorate here.

 Angi


3 year old sweet lab mix. We took her to keep her out of the pound when her owner was evicted last week, but she needs a forever home. She definitely has yellow lab fur, but not sure what else she is mixed with. She is shy, but warming up more every day. She is house trained and and doesn't chew/eat anything she's not supposed. We are told she is up to date on all shots, though we received no records. Call /text for more information on Lizzie. 720-201-3805. My name is Angi

 2 Chocolate Males



2 male chocolate labs, approximately 3 yrs old. Very nice boys who ran out of time at the shelter in Roswell, NM. They are here in Colorado now. They will be fully vetted as of Thursday. 
Good with other dogs & kids. Typical labs that love to retrieve & swim. Here is a link to more pictures

 Libby



Libby, being the only girl, was voted class clown from her 4 brothers. She is white with a full tail. Libby was the first of the pups to go up and down the stairs and the first to investigate new things in the yard and around the house. The others follow her lead. At 14-weeks of age, she weighed just over 6 pounds. She is cheerful, self-assured, playful, humorous and very aware of everything going on around her. At times she can even be mischievous but in a silly way. She is a very social little girl.
This puppy have been given a birthday of Feb 14, 2014. Not knowing what breed her mom, a Wheaten Terrier, mated with, it is difficult to know how big Libby will be. All the puppies have gentle, inquisitive personalities and have been easy to work with; healthy, happy, active, and curious youngsters who are very intelligent. They are doing well with house-training and are crate-trained.  Libby arrived to a rescue with her siblings and mom, Lillian
<http://rockymountaincockerrescue.org/lillian-14-044/>. <– Click on her mom’s name to read more about how Lillian became a rescue puppy.
Libby is micro-chipped and up-to-date on her puppy shots. Because she is a puppy, a refundable sterilization deposit

adopting Libby, submit an Adoption Application Online

 Libby’s adoption fee is $350. You may also contact us at 303-617-1939.

 Leon


Leon 14-049

Leon was the biggest of his siblings, but has a personality similar to Libby. Leon is brown with thin black streaks in his coat and has a full tail. His adorable face shows a black muzzle, but it seems to be getting lighter as he grows; he looks much like a German Shepherd. Leon has the longest legs of all his siblings at 14-weeks he weighed 10 pounds. He is at the head of the class learning new things quickly. He his self-assured, dignified, confident and regal. Leon has the presence and stature of a Great Dane and will be and elegant-looking dog.

This regal boy has been given a birthday of Feb 14, 2014. Not knowing what breed his mom, a Wheaten Terrier, mated with, it is difficult to know how big Leon will be. The entire litter has gentle, inquisitive personalities and have been easy to work with; healthy, happy, active, and curious youngsters who are very intelligent. All puppies are doing well with house-training and are crate-trained.

He arrived into a rescue with his siblings and mom, Lillian. <– Click on his mom’s name to read more about how he became a rescue puppy.

DAVIS




His name is Davis. As far as vaccines I was told he got his puppy shots. He's a year and 7 months. He is not neutered and he is absolutely great with other dogs cats and loves kids. He really deserves a good home. I would love to keep him but we can't afford it and wanted to wait for a big dog when our little guy is older.Contact shawnacarr92@gmail.com

She is spayed, fully vaccinated, hw negative, microchipped and good with other dogs and cats. She was an owner surrender due to divorce. She has a tendency to jump on adults only.
