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

 Layla

Age

Breed

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!!

House Trained

Yes, Luke is fully house trained. He also tolerates crating very well and doesn’t exhibit any destructive or aggressive behaviors.

Other Dogs

Luke needs time to adjust and get comfortable with new dogs, but he is generally compatible with other sizes and breeds. He is typically lets other dogs bark at him and will back down / flee conflict.

Cats

Luke is typically not friendly with cats. He likes to chase strays from my back yard.

Children

Luke is typically not friendly with cats. He likes to chase strays from my back yard.

Leash

Luke is doing much better on leash! He takes commands well and is very cooperative during walks in the park or neighborhood.

Personality

Luke is a curious, friendly and playful lab mix with lots of love to give! He has a very unique look which makes him appear to be much older, although he has plenty of energy. 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 isn’t interested in fetch, and he is terrible catching treats. Luke is a very sweet and loyal dog with a goofy personality. He is best suited in an active environment.

Story

Breed

Chocolate Lab mix

Sex

Female

Fixed

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!!!

Size

Other Dogs

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.

Yes

Size

House Trained

Yes

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.

Thanks

Yes

Size

37 lbs

House Trained

Yes

Other Dogs

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.

Story

Nala came to RMLR from Texas.

Thanks

Size

About 55lbs - Medium/Large

Yes

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.

Thanks

Children

Great, does very well with my 4 year old nephew. Can get excited when playing with his ball but is learning to sit and drop the ball.

Leash

Personality

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!

Story

Bo is a stray from Houston who is heart worm positive and working through his treatment. Bo will need to be on low activity for the next few months. He did have some dental work, but is doing great! Bo is a super happy, sweet boy!

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!

Male

Yes

Size

Large- approximately 80 lbs.

House Trained

Definitely- He likes to mark outside but he hasn't had a single accident in the house.

Other Dogs

Yes- Sam's a mellow older guy who probably wouldn't do well with a young rambunctious pup but he would be fine as the only dog or with an older calmer companion.

Cats

Yes- Sam has no reaction to our cat. They've both agreed to just ignore each other.

Children

Yes- despite his size Sam is a very gentle, mellow soul.

Leash

Needs work- Sam is always ready to go when the leash comes out but his excitement leads him to pull. He is improving with the help of a gentle leader.

Personality

Sam is the ultimate companion! This easy-going boy is incredibly sweet and mellow with perfect manners. He is happy to nap at your feet or on the couch until it is time for an adventure. At his age, he is no longer a hiking or running partner but he still loves his daily walks. He also loves car rides and will attempt to get in any car he gets near. He even enjoys the occasional game of tug with his favorite rope toy. He hasn’t shown a lot of interest in other animals (dogs, cats, bunnies, squirrels) but he sure loves getting attention from his people. His “signature move” is flopping in front of you and demanding a belly rub. Its adorable and impossible to resist- see the video! Sam knows most of his basic commands- sit, down, and stay. He hasn’t shown any bad manners (counter surfing, chewing, jumping, trash digging, etc.) and would likely wait patiently in the house for you to return to him. He has slept on the floor of our room since night one with no issues. This wonderful boy is past his wild, energetic days and is ready to be a loyal companion with a lot of love to give!

Story

Unfortunately, Sam hasn’t always had the easiest, happiest life. He comes from Nebraska, where a volunteer has worked hard to get him healthy and to Colorado where he has a chance at a loving, stable home. Sam has had enough excitement in his life and is ready for a quiet home where he can spend his golden years relaxing and being spoiled.

Thanks

Size

Medium - 46lbs

Other Dogs

Chancey does well with other dogs. She loves to play. Sometimes she gets REALLY excited and her foster siblings just kind of look at her like she's crazy, but she plays well. She seems to be an alpha, so would do best if there's not another alpha female in the house. She's played with lots of puppies and other dogs and generally gets along very well.

Cats

TBD

Children

Chancey may not do well with children. She isn't a big fan of strangers, and kids generally like to have friends over to their house which might make her nervous.

Leash

Chancey is working on her leash skills and is doing very well. Sometimes she walks loose-leash. Sometimes she veers in front of you by accident, and sometimes she pulls if she gets excited.

Personality

Chancey is a very excitable goofball. She's had a rough life, and needs someone that understands rescue dogs. She would probably not be ideal for a first time dog owner. Chancey is an expert toy de-stuffer and she's also really good at squeaking toys. Sometimes she will take a squeaky toy and squeak it for 5 or 10 minutes straight! Her favorite thing to do is roll around on the floor upside down while squeaking toys. Chancey would do best in a home with another dog, as she needs extra confidence that they could give her. She was a stray that lived on her own for what was probably a while, and she learned to sleep with one eye open. She is constantly on lookout and barks if she hears a new noise (or something she thinks is a new noise). Chancey has a case of Stranger Danger. She's working on it, but still gets scared/nervous around new people. She wouldn't ever bite someone, but she will approach strangers and bark aggressively at them while wagging her tail at the same time. She wants to be friends with people, but is unsure of how to go about it. Check back, as we are currently working with her on this and she's already shown great improvement! Chancey has lived in the city and in the country. She much prefers country life - there are fewer scary noises and she likes the relaxed atmosphere of the country!

Story

Chancey originally came to RMLR in the Summer of 2015. She was found in Oklahoma living under a bridge (which explains her fears of people and loud noises and her preference for not living in the city). She got adopted but then was recently dumped at the DDFL with no explanation. So - we really don't know why she's back with us but now she needs another chance in life.

Thanks

Goku seems to be a very calm and mellow puppy. He is very sweet and affectionate, and likes to snuggle. He has small bursts of activity followed by a lot of napping. We've been leaving the door to his crate open, and he likes to go inside to nap. He is a wonderful little guy with lovely light green eyes.

Story

Goku was born on April 12th. His owners surrendered him and the rest of his litter to the humane society in Joplin, MO in early July. Goku lived with a foster in MO until coming to Colorado in August.

Thanks

to Paula and Neal for being great fosters to Goku!!

Size

House Trained

Yes

Other Dogs

Cody does really well with other dogs. His play growl can sound kind of mean, but his body language says that he just wants to play and have fun! Cody MUST go to a home with another dog. He can lack confidence, and having another dog around to show him how to be calm really helps him. Also, Cody loves playing with other dogs, so he'd like a buddy to play with.

Cats

TBD

Children

Cody is good with kids

Leash

Cody is pretty good on his leash. He doesn't pull too hard

Personality

Cody is a really sweet boy that wants to love you and be loved back. Overall, Cody is a pretty laid back dog. He likes to go on a daily walk and have playtime in the yard, but after that he is content to just lay at your feet. Cody at one point in his life went through a bad case of separation anxiety. He no longer has separation anxiety, but you can tell that he's not too happy about being left alone sometimes. He can't be crated and must have free roam of the house - we think that at one point his owner must have left him in the crate for way too long. He can be left for 6 or so hours now, but someone that's home more often and doesn't work out of the home would be the best match for him.

Story

Cody has been bounced around to quite a few different homes and places in his 3 years. He is a very smart boy and you can tell he remembers exactly what happened to him and worries that it may happen again.

Thanks

to Jo & Paul for being great fosters to Cody!!

Size

80 lb, could use to gain a couple.

Other Dogs

Great! Very relaxed and friendly when meeting other dogs. Gets along well with other dogs in his foster home.

Cats

TBD

Children

There are no children in his foster home, but he would be fine. He is gentle and calm, and loves to be near his family.

Leash

Loves to go for gentle walks. Pulls at times when we encounter something exciting like wildlife.

Personality

"Handsome kindly gentleman seeks special someone(s) to love and adore for the rest of his life." Jerry is so sweet and loving, he charms everyone he meets when he quietly walks up to you, gazes into your eyes and says "Hi, I'd like to know you." Good house manners, rides well in the car. Loves to follow you around the house and be near you. Jerry shouldn't do strenuous exercise, so he's a good match if your idea of dog walking is a gentle stroll of a mile or so, a couple times a day, in the cool of a summer morning or evening. He has a spinal condition that may hinder his rear legs as he grows older, so it's good to keep his weight on target and to get regular gentle exercise. He'll do best in a home without a lot of stairs or slick floors, although those are not troublesome for him at his current age. He's hard of hearing; his fosters are teaching him to respond to gestures and touch. Come and meet handsome, loving Jerry! He's a marvelous companion.

Story

Jerry was picked up as a stray with no collar and no microchip. The Pueblo shelter contacted RMLR to say they were overcrowded, and gentle Jerry was unlikely to be adopted there because they were overflowing with puppies. RMLR was glad to rescue him, bring him into a foster home, and get him all caught up on veterinary care. We love our senior Labs, and sharing the latter chapters of their lives is a true joy!

Thanks

Sex

Fixed

Yes

Size

Tall, 85 lbs

House Trained

Yes

Other Dogs

Harper is pretty good with other dogs. She has met and greeted other dogs of all shapes and sizes. On occasion she has growled when first meeting, but not aggressively. In her previous home, she has spent time in doggy day care and has done really well.

Cats

Inquisitive, but doesn't bark

Children

Harper came from a home with a 9 month old and 3 year old. They always trusted her with their kids. However, as she is a large dog and has an old injury and can get excited, we wouldn't recommend small children.

Leash

Harper is pretty good on a leash. She came with a gentle leader, but we haven't had to use it yet. She likes to smell everything, but generally is good to walk.

Personality

Harper is an outgoing, tall, pretty lady that likes to be close to her people. Coming from a rural area, she does bark at noises and people outside the house, so would need to work on that if she was going to live in an apartment. She tore her ACL in 2015, but you can barely tell. She has plenty of energy, despite seeming awkward to sit and having a barely noticeable limp. She has great house manners and settles down nicely inside. Harper is crate trained and has done well when left for 6hrs. She knows sit, stay and wait. She gets excited for walks and riding in the car. Harper would be an excellent addition to any home looking for a laid back lady that likes to take it easy, but go for walks every day.

Story

Harper was surrendered by her owners in Kansas as they wanted her to go to a home that would have the time for her. She was very much loved and comes with a gentle leader, leash, heart worm preventatives, and some food. She spent most of her life in a rural area and with two young kids.

Thanks

to Tegan and Ethan for being great fosters to Harper!!

TBD - I don't think he would have a problem because he is so easy going

Children

Loves kids of all ages!

Leash

Does pretty well. Likes to walk right next to you but will also pull a little when there is something good to smell. He does bark at dogs but not in a aggressive manner.

Personality

Tomlin is a very mellow, easy going dude! He just wants be a part of the family, but also likes to just do his own thing. He is your typical lab who loves to eat, get pets and loving, and just enjoy life as it goes by. He is always wagging his tail when he sees a face, loves to meet and interact with new 4 legged friends and loves to ride in the car and be outside soaking in the sun! He likes to play and explore with his foster siblings. But most of all he loves to just be loved!

Story

Hi my name is Tomlin but my new foster family calls me Tommy a lot! They think I am about 5 years old, but its a little hard to know because I was found as a stray in Houston, TX. I have had a very hard life so far, but this has not stopped me from wanting my own family to love! I was picked up off the streets and shortly there after it was determined that I am heart worm positive. I will be starting treatment on 8/17. However, I was also diagnosed with the distemper disease, which is what most dogs are vaccinated for as young puppies and then throughout their life. It made me very sick for a long time, but I am finally starting to make my way back from this, too! The side affects from the distemper is that I tick (or twitch) a lot! Over time my ticks may fade but this is hard to know for sure. My right side is mostly affected, but none of this stops me from being a dog who longs for his own family and it has not damaged my heart to love anyone and everyone! They have also learned that I have been shot with a BB gun because I still have a couple BB's in my chest area. At some point I might have also been hit by a car because I have an old fracture on my left front leg. However, this has healed pretty well and it definitely does not slow me down! Oh yeah they also say I look almost 100% lab except I have a slightly longer snout and a little grey on my ears. I have heard my foster family say that I am 100% cute and lovable. Yes, I have had a hard life but it has not hardened me. I can't wait to find my forever family here in Colorado!

Thanks

to Heather, Mia, Quintin, Oso, Snow, Biscuit, and Ryzer for being great fosters to Tomlin!!

Age

Breed

Black Lab/Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler

Sex

Female

Fixed

Not Yet

Size

50 lbs

House Trained

She's had a few accidents

Other Dogs

She gets along with the resident dogs pretty well. We haven't been able to meet other dogs as she went into heat when she first arrived.

Cats

She has tried to chase cats we have encountered on walks.

Children

We have not come across any children, but she gets very nervous with quick movement and people invading her space, so she likely would not be a good fit for younger children.

Leash

Cinder loves walks and does pretty well on the leash. She does try to chase squirrels/birds/rabbits/etc, but she is getting better at not doing that.

Personality

Cinder went into heat when we first got her. She has been a very nervous girl and needs time to gain confidence, especially in experiencing new things. She is starting to get better and wag her tale and butt more often. However, she also can quickly become very nervous/uncomfortable. She can be very hard on herself, especially when trying new things. Because of this, she is currently a high flight risk. Cinder will need someone to provide a lot of encouragement and be patient with her. Once Cinder gets to know and trust you, she is a total sweetheart and works hard to get as many pets as possible. She is happy to cuddle with you at night but also sleeps quietly in her kennel. She is a very calm dog currently and is happy to be by your side. She is definitely very fast and I'm guessing she will become more active as she gains more confidence and goes out of heat. Cinder is definitely very smart and eager to please, but unfortunately she just gets so nervous she hasn't been able to learn any commands yet

Story

Cinder is a rescue from Arkansas

Thanks

to Brian for being great foster to Cinder!!

Soji

soji crosspost.jpg

We need to find a new forever home for our beautiful, long-legged AKC American black lab, Soji.  She is well-loved, very sweet, kind, and gentle.  She can get very excitable, though, and does need her exercise to balance her energy.  She is 6.5 years old, 75 pounds, and we've owned her since she was a puppy.  She is still very active despite tearing an ACL in 2014.  She still loves long walks, jogs, hikes, and playing with the family.  She's not a fetching lab but she will gladly join in chasing another lab/dog that fetches.  She gets along great with other dogs and kids of all ages; she would most likely prefer to live with another dog.   She does pull on her leash, especially when kids walk her, and it's something we work with her on consistently & occasionally go back to using a gentle leader with her.  She is house-trained but is on medication for bladder spasms and will do best if she is not left for long periods of times in the house without an opportunity to go outside.  We are seeking another home as we can no longer afford her care.  The cost of her ACL repair and the issue of bladder spasms, which are now controlled, were more than we can afford. 
 

References will be checked and a small re-homing fee will be required to make sure she goes to a good home. Contact wendilarson@yahoo.com
