Personality

Hi my name is CeeBee. I grew up in Houston, Texas as a stray and feel very lucky I came to Colorado (I experienced snow for the first time and love it!). I’m happiest playing with tennis balls and stuffed animals, going on walks, and playing with my foster sister Sadie. When I am really excited I love to do zoomies around the house! I love my foster sister, Sadie, because she will play rough with me and doesn't get mad when I play rough back. Being very active and willing to play with me every day is a must. I also love treats, belly rubs, and cuddling. Sometimes I think I am a lap dog. Be prepared for me to sit on your lap and give you kisses! I do get a little anxious and nervous in new places and around new people and dogs, so, I need someone who is patient and understands me (my foster parents can let you in on what works best for me in new situations! It’s as simple as a squeaky ball or treat). I am a very happy dog and I look forward to meeting someone who will be my best friend.

Cee Bee is a stray from Houston, Texas

Personality

Hi there, my name is Brooks! I’m a 2 year old Lab/Greyhound mix and am looking for my perfect forever home! If you’re looking for a fun-loving pup that has lots of energy to spare, I might be the one. I’ve just completed a board and train with my trainer to learn how to be a more balanced dog and so far, I kinda like this being balanced thing! I love to play with other dogs and when you see me get the zoomies, you’ll know I’ve got some greyhound in me! I know Sit, Shake, Down, Place, and Come. I have a silly personality and my trainer lady calls me a goofball a lot—and when you get to know me, I’ll show you my super cute smile! Because of my energy level, I’d be best in a home without young kids and I do need an owner that can help me with my confidence in meeting new people and new situations. But, my nice trainer lady is ready and willing to teach you everything you need to know to help us bond the right way! I even come with 3 free training sessions! If you think we could be a match, you can apply to meet me! My trainer lady says we might need to meet a couple times just to make sure we’re comfortable together before I come home.

Story

Brooks is originally from Joplin.  Brooks has spent a lot of his young life in a cage and came to RMLR with very little confidence. He's done really well with his training and is ready for his forever home!

Thanks

Age

11 months

Breed

Lab mix

Sex

Female

Fixed

Yes

Size

45lbs - she probably won't be too big

House Trained

Yes!

Other Dogs

Yes. Tiny loves other dogs, especially those that will share treats, toys, beds, and who will wrestle with her. Tiny would benefit greatly from having another young dog in the house.

Cats

We are pretty sure Tiny is ok with cats.

Children

Yes. Tiny is very respectful of the "tiny" people when we are out and about. She has not tried to jump on any of them.

Leash

Yes. Tiny still gets excited on rare occasions, but she heels very nicely.

Personality

Tiny is a dog’s dog. She is perfect and compact. She is mixed with Australian Cattle Dog and has these adorable white socks speckled with black on her back feet along with a small white patch on her chest. Although she has Aussie in her, her fur is not terribly long and she does not shed a lot. Tiny is such a well-mannered puppy. She is very respectful of other dogs, whether is it because they are older or because they don’t want to play with her. Tiny currently has a Chihuahua foster sister who is 11 years old and only 7lbs. Tiny was respectful in the greeting and hasn’t tried to engage in any (unwanted by the Chihuahua) play. She is also very respectful to her 5yr old red heeler foster sister who sometimes has a hard time with new dogs in the house. She absolutely adores her younger foster sister who is only 6 months old and will play with her all day long (if they were allowed to). Their favorite games to play are keep away and tug of war, which go hand in hand. Tiny is very good about taking toys from other dogs. She will take them very slowly and keep her eye on the other dog for signals from them that it is ok. When she finally gets it back, it is the most exciting thing ever for her. Tiny does not get underfoot and she is very good about keeping herself occupied with toys, bones, dogs, and laying down when she is done playing. She is very labby in the sense that she will tote a toy around in her mouth when she gets excited. She will drag every single toy out every day, as she likes to give equal attention to all of her toys! Tiny likes to run after a ball or frisbee if you throw it for her, and she is working on bringing it back. Tiny is still very energetic and puppy-like, but also settles down very nicely inside. She knows what is a dog toy and what's not a dog toy and she's been very good about only playing with toys. She loves raw beef bones and bully sticks to help keep her mouth busy and her jaw tired so she doesn’t chew things she is not supposed to. Tiny is crate trained and does fine with her crate. She likes to cry if she is crated and I leave, but she settles down after a bit and recently has not been crying as often. Other than that, Tiny is a pretty quiet girl. She will occasionally cry or bark if she needs something, but it is just the right amount of barking. She has also learned to sleep on the bed at night and makes it all the way through the night without having to go potty. Sometimes Tiny is a night owl and wants to play instead of going to bed, so she gets crated so that she settles down and goes to sleep. Tiny's newest toy is a dog tunnel. She likes it because she can walk through it, sleep in it, and chew on it. While Tiny lacks a very small amount of impulse control, she is very smart and is responding to training very well. She gets very excited about things and she is quickly learning how to manage the excitement by waiting patiently. She now waits patiently while I get her food and put it on the ground. Tiny is very close to waiting very patiently to go inside and outside, she sometimes still gets excited and wants to go out first. Tiny has been known to take off after critters when she is off leash. With proper recall training, Tiny will be able to enjoy plenty of time at open space off leash dog parks. She has successfully played at Cherry Creek Dog Park, but she did take off down the river to play with other dogs, but she did not go far and didn’t take off when I caught up to her. She really just wanted to play with every dog. Due to the aussie in her, Tiny shows signs of being very good at agility courses and would probably benefit from agility classes once she is old enough. Tiny is in no way the alpha of the pack. Her forever family would need to be dedicated to making sure that they are the alpha in the relationship to show her what is right and wrong. She is quick to listen and take cues from people and other dogs.

Story

Tiny is a stray from Arkansas

Age

Breed

Lab mix

Sex

Female

Fixed

Yes

Size

Layla came to RMLR at a whopping 93.6lbs. She is probably down to about 70lbs and is working on gaining muscle.

House Trained

Yes. Layla has been working on house training and her accidents are extremely infrequent (once in the past 5 weeks). She is crate trained, but no longer needs the crate. When I am home she will let me know when she needs to go out.

Other Dogs

Yes. She is respectful of all dogs and will engage in play or leave them alone. Has no regard for the neighbor dogs on the other side of the fence that bark 100% of the time.

Cats

Yes. Layla is super respectful of the kitties. She just wants to lick them.

Children

Yes, but she jumps when she is excited so smaller children might be a concern; she would need to be monitored very closely until her jumping is corrected. She has been walked by children without concern. No concerns of aggression.

Leash

Layla used to pull constantly. She is doing much better at heeling and not trying to get into every car in the parking lot (she loves the car!). She still needs a little reinforcement but she has been doing great. When on a run or a hike she does not pull.

Personality

Layla is wonderful! Everyone that meets her is compelled to pet her and falls in love with her instantly. She is a happy goofy girl; your typical lab. She loves playing fetch and even learned how to go to the top of the stairs and drop the ball down to play fetch with herself. She doesn’t have much interest in playing with other dogs, but will chase them to engage in a good game of tug. Layla was very rambunctious when she first got to RMLR. She didn't know any commands except shake. With a lot of hard work, Layla knows a ton of commands and she no longer tries to run out the front door when it is opened. She sits and waits patiently, even when I walk out the door and leave it open, and when being fed. Despite her lack of training, she doesn’t bark, and never chews on anything that isn’t hers. She is a very good girl and with a little more training she will be amazing! She is very receptive and learns quickly! Layla was never given the attention she needed and will thrive in an environment with direction and structure where she can run, play, and hike. She was fairly weak from inactivity at first, but now she will run at least 3 miles, hike for a few hours, and play at the dog park for 1+ hours. Layla is a super sweet pup who occasionally thinks she is a lap dog and really wants someone to love and spoil her as much as I do!

Story

Layla was a local surrender due to her continual allergies, scratching, and fur loss. Her previous owners tried multiple rounds of antibiotics and steroids, which provided only temporary relief from the allergies while causing long term damage to her immune system. Layla really needed a complete reboot of her system. After Layla was given her Heartworm Preventative she started to pull her fur out, so we believe that the HW medication is what caused this. When this happened Layla got a holistic allergy test done and out of over 100 things, she tested for allergies on 29 of them (these are actually intolerances and some may resolve over time, once her immune system is stronger). We were able to find her a food that did not contain any of her allergens (available at many local pet supply stores), and she will likely need to be on specific food for the remainder of her life. Her immune system was damaged by vaccines and we have been working on getting it back to a normal state. She has been doing bioresonance treatments, has been to the chiropractor, and has been taking supplements to correct the damage. She is doing much better and, despite some still missing fur, is finally at a really great place. She requires some extra care when it comes to her diet, and she gets a bath a few times a week, but other than that she is just a fun happy pup who needs a home with someone who will provide her the love, care, and training that she needs to be the best Layla she can be.

Thanks

to Laken, Sophia, and Kitty for being great fosters to Layla!!

Size

Luke is a large dog, but he only weighs about 60 pounds right now. Expect his ideal weight around 80 lbs. He has a beautiful coat with interesting white markings on his chest, snout and paws.

House Trained

Yes, Luke is house trained.

Other Dogs

Luke needs time to adjust and get comfortable with new dogs. Still learning his manners!

Cats

Not sure yet – will update ASAP.

Children

Luke is good with kids – he has a very easy-going personality. He is usually timid around with new people.

Leash

Luke needs some leash training, but he is generally cooperative during walks in the park/neighborhood.

Personality

Luke is a friendly and playful lab with lots of love to give! He has a very unique look which makes him appear to be much older. Luke loves to be petted and he will remind you when the attention is not sufficient! He is quiet around the house, only barking at the occasional visitor to the front door. Luke loves getting outdoors and exploring his territory. He doesn’t like going into the crate, but is slowly adjusting to it when I’m away.

Yes- in February

Size

50 ish pounds - she is a very petite lab and will be around mid 50’s when she gets to a healthy weight.

House Trained

Yes – she will sometimes go and stand near the back door when she needs to go out or she will run around the house.

Other Dogs

Yes, however, she has taken about 3 weeks to get comfortable with her 2 foster brothers and she is unsure how to play with them and needs some human guidance.

Cats

TBD

Children

Yes - She is fostered in a house with a 10-year-old and does well with him, but she has a happy tail that hurts, so would recommend that kids be older than 5-8 yrs old.

Leash

She does well on a leash - doesn’t pull you over, but will just need a little repetition as she has a variable speed when walking. The one time she will pull is when a rabbit is moving near.

Personality

Aggie can be little timid when you first meet her, but once she is comfortable around you, she doesn’t show that when meeting new people and has shown she loves meeting new people. Aggie is a quick study when it comes to commands. She came in with very little in her repertoire, but has blossomed. She even knows how to sit up and beg and she is very cute when she does this. She is also very gentle when taking treats. She is a dog that loves to be near her humans. She has a fun, playful personality, but is also happy to chill and lounge at your feet. She would love nothing better than to cuddle on the couch or bed with you as well, if you let her. She does a very good job of convincing you that you should let her. She may also need a some patience. She has a little separation anxiety that we are helping her work through and her training is going well. The time she can be left at home is steadily increasing. She will need a place where everyone is willing to continue the training and have alternate places where she can hang out so she doesn’t have to be left alone for very long, if necessary, until she works through this. In the little time we have been working with her, she has shown improvement. She is still trying to figure out how to play with her foster brothers. She really wants to play, but still learning how.

Story

Aggie hails from Missouri. She is exemplifies the happy lab and would love nothing better than to have a forever home where she could romp and play.

Thanks

to the Connors for being great fosters to Aggie!!!

Not sure yet. He gets along great with my dog, no problem when I first brought him to my house. He still gets along with my dog, they are buds. He has been aggressive towards other dogs that come over to my house or other dogs while I walk him on a a leash. He is just being protective over me. He does not do this when I am not around. We are going to get him some training.

Cats

Yes, does fine with our cat.

Children

Wonderful with kids and people.

Leash

Needs some training, pulls.

Personality

Elway is a special dog and we are so glad we had an opportunity to save him. I picked him up from the Adams County Shelter because his past owners dropped him off to be put down because of his allergies. When I picked him up, his skin and ears were covered in yeast and he chewed off all of his hair and had no hair around his eyes. I am assuming that his owners left him outside and didn't give him any attention either due to his smell. I immediately gave him a special bath everyday and put him on a raw dog food diet, along with a long list of vitamins and herbs to get his intestines back in shape and kill the yeast. We also did a vaccine detox which was when we really saw improvement. We did get his allergies tested. Elway needs to be on a very specific food and treat diet forever. We have found what works for him. He also likes to eat everything (socks, toilet paper, etc.,) so we make sure that everything is picked up. Again, we are working with Elway on training because he is still a pup. He is a very fast learner. We just had to focus on his allergies first. Elway is about 90% healed. You would never believe he is the same dog I picked up from the shelter. Elway loves to snuggle, he loves attention, loves to play fetch, chew on bones, and lay by my feet, has the funniest personality - he barks softly as he talks to you and sleeps on our bed with his legs in the air, jumps on the tramp with us, and is very lovable and so good with people. He is a typical lab. We just need to get him some training to allow for other dogs to come around his owner as he likes to be protective. We are so glad Elway will have a 2nd chance. I included some before and after photos so you can see his progress.

Owner surrender to Adams county shelter due to allergies.

Other Dogs

Riley should go to a home without other dogs. She does well at a dog park where she can go and do her own thing, but doesn't have a lot of interest in other dogs. She does okay when she sees other dogs if they respect her space but she doesn't like to be surprised by other dogs suddenly coming up to her. She has attended doggie daycare and does well in the senior dog group there. She previously had a sibling and had resource guarding issues - she doesn't like to share her toys.

Cats

Cats would probably be too fun and she might chase them! We'd recommend a house without cats.

Children

She does well with children but we would recommend older children for her.

Leash

Riley loves going outside for walks. She does well on her leash but pulls occasionally because she is excited. We are working with her and she responds to heel and has made amazing progress.

Personality

Riley is a very good girl!! She is well mannered and loves to be around and please her humans. She has been through obedience training and will do almost anything for a treat - she is a pro at "sit, shake, down, stay, come, heel, gentle". Riley loves going on a few walks each day and gets very excited about them. She also really seems to enjoy hikes and has great energy. She is not a barker – it’s very seldom that she does. Riley is crate trained and sleeps in her crate every night. She is house trained and does not get up on any furniture.

Story

Riley is an owner surrender back to RMLR due to a change in family circumstances. She has been extremely well cared for and they are very sad to have to give her up.

Leash

Good- pulls at beginning, on your way back he will sometimes get stubborn and stop. If you let him rest and talk to him he will continue to walk home. Not sure if his hips are little tired or he's a little stubborn, but very obedient with a gentle voice and assurance.

Personality

Mellow, he loves to chill in his crate. I leave the door open so he can go in and out as he pleases. He is good to roam the house when I'm gone.He does not jump on people but will get on the sofa or bed. Where working on that since it's not allowed in my home. He's very calm and relaxed around people. He will stand at the door when ready to go out and will bark sometimes to come in or just sit quietly by the door until I let him in. He does show aggression toward other dogs with toys or food. He would be best in a home with a timid dog or the only dog. He is great with his timid easy going foster brother they play well with toys. He does not show toy or food aggression with humans just dogs. Joel had heartworm treatment in April 2017. He recovered very well and is back to regular exercise. He loves his walks and jogs, loves the doggy park. He is learning to check in with me and come when I call him. He has hip dysplasia but surgery is not necessary since his supplements are working great. Shows no sign of pain or weakness while taking his daily supplements. He enjoys car rides -likes to put his head out the window or his face in front of air conditioner. He drools often and drinks lot's of water. Joel seems to enjoy being brushed and even likes his baths. He is very obedient-aims to please. He loves to be petted and lay close by when your relaxing. He's a great family dog waiting patiently for his forever home.

Yes- loves playing with other dogs. She is great with both her foster sister and brother. She likes to tumble around with our female dog that is closer to her size and plays tug and fetch with our male that is about 20 lbs heavier. She has been to doggie day care in her previous home and did well.

Cats

Unlikely, she has a prey drive. We don't have any cats.

Children

Unknown at this time. It would be a challenge if they have a lot of friends that come and go from the home. She is scared when meeting new people so guests would need to be very respectful of her space when meeting her for the first few times. In her previous home, she did become fear assertive with dog walkers that were new to her.

Leash

Does well on leash. Pulls some however with a little work she would do great.

Personality

Nala is about as cute as they come. She loves playing with her foster siblings, playing with toys, and snuggling in for a nap with her people. Nala lacks some confidence when meeting new people. Once she has time to get to know them on her own time, she bonds quickly. Having another confident dog around her seems to be helping her warm up quicker to new people. She has shown separation anxiety in the past so having another dog(s) in the home or someone that is home most of the day would be important. She is crate trained, she goes easily into her crate while we are gone for a couple hours and waits calmly to be let out. She has been sleeping in a crate at night. She loves being outside in the fenced backyard or hanging out on the deck in the sunshine. She rides beautifully in the car and enjoys going for rides.

Nala came to RMLR from Texas.

Other Dogs

Linda lives with three other dogs and is best friends with one of them. They play and play and play together and she absolutely loves it! She'd probably do well in a home with or without dogs, as long as she gets enough exercise.

Cats

TBD , but she does have a high prey drive so probably not.

Children

Linda is a real sweetheart and would probably do well with kids.

Leash

Linda walks with a harness on and is very polite on the leash. She's content to walk at a nice pace and not pull much at all.

Personality

Linda is a very sweet little girl, who loves getting attention from her people. Getting belly rubs are her favorite. She also loves playing with other dogs, toys, and naps. She is still a young puppy, so you do have to supervise her with toys and in the yard for putting things in her mouth and swallowing. She loves hanging out in the backyard and will even "help" you with yard work. Going on walks are her favorite, but she does have a high prey drive with little bunnies. She is very friendly with dogs she meets on the walks. Linda is learning how to heal, stay, sit and wait for release to eat her food. She is very smart and can be a little stubborn and sassy, but she is VERY treat motivated and learns quickly. She sleeps on the foot of the bed at night and goes in her crate when alone. Bring out a Kong with peanut butter, and she runs to her crate. Linda has lived in a foster home with multiple dogs and a foster as the only dog. She would be great in either home. If she is the only dog, she will need daily walks and occasional play dates. Linda had a rough start to life, but she is learning quickly that life is wonderful and people want nothing but to lover her.

Story

Linda's owners were forced to give her up after it was discovered that she was kept outside on a chain (with the chain almost embedded in her neck) without food, water, or shade.

Other Dogs

She loves dogs of all sizes and ages. She would love another dogs in her forever home, but would also do very well in an active home. She loves being active. She is still learning boundaries with other dogs, but she is very sweet. She loves to share treats, food, and toys with them.

Cats

Unknown - She gets excited when she sees the neighborhood cats and is learning to be calm with them. She just wants to play with them.

Children

Recommended that Dutchess go to a home with older children or no children. She gets excited and sometimes jumps, but does not know her own size.

Leash

Very close to being a master leash walker.

Personality

Dutchess is such a doll. All she wants out of life is to lay in your lap while you pet her and to run. She has such a goofy personality. She found the hidden basket of toys and pulled them all out. She loves bouncing around trying to decide which toy to play with. Dutchess will eventually settle down after a bit and relax. She loves treats, bully sticks, raw soup bones, and anything else that keeps her mouth busy and tired. Dutchess is crated when no one is home and loves sleeping on the dog bed in the bedroom at night. She only barks when she wants to play with other dogs. Car rides are her favorite. Dutchess is a very sweet girl who just wants to be loved.

Story

Dutchess was found as a stray in Houston, Texas. She tested low-positive for heartworm and RMLR is still deciding on the best course of treatment for it. She will need to be on restricted activity until her treatment os over, but she doesn't seem to mind staying calm most of the time. The vet also thinks she might need knee surgery eventually. Even after adoption RMLR will cover the costs at our partner vet clinics. Adopters who are willing to care for her through her healing will be richly rewarded with a wonderful dog.

Bo is the most lovable, sweet boy. He is a puppy at heart who LOVES his tennis balls. Bo will find any and all balls and carry them around everywhere. He plays by himself, throwing it to himself and swatting it around. When he is ready he will bring the ball to you and want you to throw it. He is learning to sit and drop the ball before he gets it back. His love for balls has been the trick to teaching him basic commands (sit, stay, down, etc.). Bo sleeps and relaxes on his doggie bed. He like to be close to his human and loves attention. Bo is not super fond of the create. Bo initially barks and cries when you leave, but when you return he is sleeping and fine. Bo sleeps through the night on his doggie bed. He is such a sweet, loving boy who just needs a 2nd chance!

Tally is a sweet, gentle, sensitive dog. He needs to be adopted into a quiet neighborhood, in a calm home with calm, positive people who will have the patience to allow him to gradually regain his trust and confidence that this world is a safe place. He seems to need one or more other dogs to help him feel more safe. We have seen him cower/shake. He takes comfort in the bedroom and bathroom, but enjoys it when you sit next to him and spend quality one on one time together. He hasn't once growled or snapped when approached. Tally is easy to have around: no jumping on you, no counter-surfing, no getting in the trash, no chewing on anything inappropriate, no sensitivity to thunder or storm sounds, no accidents in the house, and he can be given free roam in the house (although he might get on the bed; just close the door if you don't allow that). Tally needs a loving home that has people who are ready to be patient with him warming up. Once he spends time with you and trusts you, he will be amazing! It is very rewarding to watch him relax bit by bit as he feels safer. Tally loves going on walks, walks well on a leash with little redirection. He doesn't like it when vehicles approach too closely or strangers. He will cower behind your legs. Doesn't chase squirrels or cats at all! He's healthy, up to date on all vaccines. Has had a hip injury, but is all better now! Tally is currently a very shy and timid dog, but with time and love will, trust can be gained and he'll bring joy to a good home!.

Story

Tally came from a not so nice shelter in Arkansas. He was with a foster for two weeks before coming to CO. She said he warmed up to her quickly and bonded. She was sad to see him go and would've kept him if she could!

Thanks

to Melissa for being a great foster to Tally!!

Personality

Jordy...aka Chester is settling in to a home routine. He needs 2 walks a day and would do best in a home with an older playmate. He looks for guidance and loves to play and wrestle. Jordy loves his toys, tennis balls, and knuckle bones to chew on. Potty trained. Not sure about cats, and will do best with older kiddos. He is strong and does best when he is exercised daily. He is a complete goofball and we are working on manners. I believe he would also do best in a house with a yard. 

Chester s a goofball! He is very lovable and a sweet boy. He still has tons of energy and needs long walks. So this is beneficial to him and YOU!                                                                                                                                             

Story

Rescued from a shelter in Ft. Carson CO. His owner dropped him off and said he would be back for him but never came. He can be skeptical of some men and would need some time building trust.

Thanks

He knows a few basic commands and is very food motivated, so he will be easy to train. He is taking cues from my dogs about the various house rules, he's very smart! Keith is Very High energy and would do best in a very active home and/or with another active dog. Set up a meeting with this guy and I guarantee you will fall in love!

Personality

Hello! My name is Bart! I am looking for my perfect furr-ever home! If you’re looking for a fun-loving pup that has energy to spare, I might be the dog for you. I am a fun, playful, loving one year black lab mix. Upon first meeting me I am shy. But given time to adjust to new people and a new home, I will show my fun, playful, loving side. I need an owner that can help me with my confidence in meeting new people and new situations; and understands it might take me a few days to become comfortable in a new home and environment. I am a fanatic about belly rubs, cuddling, car rides, hiking, swimming and laying in streams, and meeting other dogs. I walk with a limp but it doesn’t slow me down-- I love my early morning walks and regular hikes. My foster parents can fill anyone in on the reason behind the limp but I want everyone to know I still love life and all the adventures it holds. I would do best in a home as the only dog or with dog’s my size or larger. If I’m with other dogs, I prefer another dog that is active and has a ton of energy to wrestle. I’m really excited to meet you!

Story

Bart is a rescue from Rogers, Arkansas.

Thanks

to Jen and AJ for being great fosters to Bart!!
