Living Life to the Max

Max was found abandoned in Iowa, tied to a tree in a dog park. Someone left him there without a look back. How scary this must have been for a dog who is completely blind. But Max hasn't let that one bad moment damper his loving, playful and curious attitude.
Max is very friendly towards humans and other dogs.  He lives with his 4 year old foster sister and 12 year old foster brother and they get along great.  He loves to play with his foster sister all the time.  Max's blindness is caused by OSD (Oculoskeletal Dysplasia).  This is a genetic condition which causes dwarfism and blindness. Other than daily eye drops, Max is currently a healthy, happy, friendly, goofy, and playful lab.  He would probably do best in a home with other dogs as he can follow them around if their collars jingle or if they wear a bell.  He loves to be near people and is very good at locating humans when called. Because he is blind, it will take him a little while to get used to his surroundings and he is a afraid of stairs.  He would do best in a house that has few or no stairs. Max uses his sniffer to find the door, the water bowl, the food bowl, his humans and dogs. Max isn't letting anything slow him down and living life to the Max.
Without your support and our foster homes, we could not help special needs dogs like Max, who have so much love to give and life to live.

 RMLR's Featured Dog Minimize

Meet Vernon

Find out more information about Vernon and our other Labs for Adoption under Adoptable Dogs


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.

 Plea to Spay & Neuter Minimize

Everyday 10,000 humans are born in the U.S. and each day 70,000 puppies and kittens are also born. As long as these birth rates exist, there will never be enough homes for all the animals. As a result, millions of healthy, loving cats, dogs, kittens, and puppies face early deaths as a form of animal control. Others are left to fend for themselves against automobiles, the elements, other animals, and cruel humans. You can help just by spaying and neutering your pets, don't ever buy from a pet store, as almost every one of them uses some form of a puppy mill, and remind people to adopt from a shelter or a rescue. Thank you! (from here)

Please take a minute to read...

An intact dog can produce two litters a year of 6-10 puppies per litter, which means in six years, one female dog and her offspring could produce up to 67,000 dogs. An average of 40,000 cats/dogs are euthanized in Colorado each year (that's JUST Colorado!).

Please click on and find out more about this state sponsored initiative to subsidize spay & neuter programs. Thank you.

Some rough statistics on shelters:

Out of eight to ten million animals that are in shelters annually, roughly 60% of those dogs are euthanized. Of the other 40% that are adopted out there are 20% of those returned for medical or behavioral problems.

Info obtained from National council on Pet Population study and policy, which is a colalition of animal-related organizations, based on estimates from the American Society for the prevention of Cruelty to animals and the American Veterinary Medical association.
