 Layla

HOW TO SPONSOR ME

 


layla2.jpglayla2.jpglayla.jpg

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!!

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

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.

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.

Story

Owner surrender to Adams county shelter due to allergies.

Sex

Female

Yes

Size

60 lbs

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

Cats

They are too much fun to chase.

Children

Leash

Bart can pull when he wants to, and is working on his leash skills

Personality

Bart is a real lover! His main goal in life is to just sit and get loved on and petted. His other pastime is napping in the sun, or shade, or wherever he can find that's comfortable. When Bart first arrived, he had some fears and was scared of strangers and new situations. He has worked with a trainer and has come a long way and is now ready for his forever home!

Sex

Male

Fixed

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

Yes

Size

Medium - 46lbs

House Trained

Yes

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

Cats

Children

Great with kids. Our kids are 11 and 12, but he's interacted with younger kids at the park and has been gentle and sweet with them. He's not mouthy at all, and doesn't jump on people.

Leash

We use a retractable leash, and he loves to go for walks. Does not pull.

Personality

Goku is just the sweetest little guy. He is very social-he greets people at the door, and loves to climb on to my lap to snuggle. He is playful and energetic with our dog, but settles down easily and enjoys napping on his dog bed. He sleeps on a dog bed in our room at night, and yawns loudly or barks once to let us know when he needs to go outside. (He still gets up once every night to go to the bathroom). Goku does not like to be confined in a crate, and urinates every time I have left him in one, even for short periods of an hour or less. I'm home most of the day, so this has not been an issue for us, but is something for an adopter to consider.

Story

Goku was born April 12th in Joplin MO. He came to Colorado August 2, and just finished treatment for a particularly bad case of pneumonia. He is completely all better now, and the vet said that he most likely will go on to lead a normal and healthy life. They weren't able to determine whether it was aspiration pneumonia or caused by distemper. Goku also has a small benign growth above his left eye, which is common in puppies and may go away on its own in a few months. If not, it can easily be removed later. We are grateful that RMLR invested in Goku's medical care and know that he will be a loving and loyal family member to a lucky adopter.

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.

Yes

Size

Tall, 85lbs, in great shape

House Trained

Yes

Other Dogs

Harper is great with other dogs. She has met and greeted other dogs of all shapes and sizes. She and our dog are best of friends and love to play but did take a few days to warm up to each other. In her previous home, she has spent time in doggy day care and has done really well.

Cats

Harper loves our cat. She talks to her and likes to nuzzle at her. This is mostly tolerated. Harper has learned to resist the urge to follow her around the house. We think Harper could definitely share a house with a feline family member.

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 and can get excited, we personally wouldn't recommend small children.

Leash

Harper came with a gentle leader and she walks well with it. She likes to smell everything, but generally is good to walk. If she knows we are going somewhere with backpacks/water toys then she gets excited and pulls all the way to the car.

Personality

Harper is an outgoing, tall, affectionate lady that likes to be close to her people. Coming from a rural area, she does bark at noises and people outside the house at times, but has improved a lot since we've had her. She has great house manners and settles down nicely. Harper is crate trained, but doesn't need it as she doesn't touch anything while we are gone. She knows sit, down, stay and wait. She gets excited for walks and especially riding in the car. Since coming to Colorado she has learned to swim, has been camping and loves hiking in the mountains. Harper would be an excellent addition to any home looking for a gentle, affectionate, loyal friend 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 and heart worm preventatives. She spent most of her life in a rural area and with two young kids. She tore her ACL in winter 2015 but we could barely tell as she has plenty of energy, aside from being awkward to sit and having a barely noticeable limp. Since coming to Colorado, Harper has seen a specialist in Littleton to get to the bottom of her previous injury and stiffness. They found arthritis in both knees and recommend TPL surgery on both. The good news is that the rescue will pay for the surgery at the Littleton clinic and the treatment will give her the best mobility in the long term. Harper doesn't need to have the surgeries before adoption, but she will need a family committed to seeing her through two operations and rehabilitation and follow up appointments. Harper is a wonderful dog that has lots of love to give. She is lucky to have come to Colorado where she is able to get the treatment she needs to keep active, happy, and healthy.

Thanks

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!

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!

Size

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

Age

Breed

Lab mix

Sex

Female

Fixed

Yes

Size

52 lb., eating her way up to her goal weight of 54-55 lb.

House Trained

Brushing up her skills now that she lives in a home environment

Other Dogs

Great! Friendly and playful.

Cats

There are no cats in her foster home, but when she spent a day at the vet clinic for a heartworm treatment, they said she was disinterested in the clinic cats and just wanted attention and love from the humans.

Children

Yes, if the child will enjoy getting kissed and licked by their new loving puppy! Colette is delicate and gentle with her kisses, yet enthusiastic, so she sometimes jumps up to reach your face. She's just very sweet and loving.

Leash

Good

Personality

Sweet, friendly, cuddly, affectionate, and playful yet can also chill out. Knows how to sit and shake, and takes treats gently. She's generally quiet, but sometimes at home her watch dog side comes out if the doorbell rings or someone comes in, and she barks loudly and runs to the door. She can be a little cautious in new situations. She's smart and will easily learn new skills; willing to work for treats!

Story

Picked up as a stray in Houston Aug. 9, and a month later was transported from their shelter to a foster home here. Tested low positive for heartworm and has begun treatment. She needs to have a lower activity level over the next four or so months while she's being treated. RMLR will pay for the entire course of treatment at one of our partner vet clinics. Her heartworm issue is curable and afterwards, she'll be free to run and wrestle and play to her heart's delight. But for a while, only walks for this sweet girl.

Thanks

to Joanna and Maris for being great fosters to Colette!!

Leash

Walks nicely on a leash and loves walks

Personality

Sweet, loving, and calm but with a wonderful playful, fun-loving disposition. Sonny is a happy dog. Sonny is a very handsome yellow male, neutered lab with a huge blocky head and a wonderful, happy, calm, loving disposition. He is so happy to be with his people and doesn't ask for much besides a loving companion, a nice long walk, a comfy bed, and of course his food. And he does love food. We are working on a weight loss plan program together much to his dismay. With a perfect lab disposition, Sonny never met anyone he doesn't love - including children, dogs, and cats. I am thrilled Sonny was able to come to Colorado where wonderful people so generously open their hearts and homes to senior dogs. Are you the one with the big heart who can give Sonny his forever home? He will return your love 20 times over for many years to come. Ask to come meet Sonny- you will immediately fall in love.

Story

Sonny is an absolutely wonderful senior gentleman lab who was found as a stray in Kansas. I don't understand how anyone ever gave him up.

Thanks

to Terri for being a great foster to Sonny!!

Other Dogs

Loves to play with and be near our dog.

Cats

Curious but leaves them alone.

Loves my kids! She's a very happy energetic pup~recommend 5years and older.

Leash

Learning~just needs practice and consistency.

Personality

Taffy is one happy girl! She seems to have a perpetual smile on her cute face. She knows how to sit for a treat, and when told to lay down in her crate, she settles down. Took a nap today, and she found the dog bed under my bed and took a nap too! She seems to crave fun and attention. She just wants to be with her people. I see her ideally with an active family/single/couple that would include her and either not leave her alone all day or have another dog to keep her company.

Story

Taffy is a rescue

Thanks

to the Jorgensen family for being great fosters to Taffy!!

Not yet, will be.

Size

55 lbs

House Trained

Other Dogs

Yes

Cats

Not great, according to intake agency. They said she doesn't understand cats -- when excited, tends to put her mouth around them. Probably best if she goes to a home without cats.

Children

Yes

Leash

Does pretty well.

Personality

Angel is a fun, playful, girl who is settling in nicely. She loves playing with chew toys, chasing the frisbee, and playing with our kids. She is a bit overweight, but she is very active and, if exercised often, should lose the weight quickly. She was very skittish and timid when she first arrived with us, but it only took about half a day for her to warm up to us and settle in. We are working on getting her more comfortable with the crate, but she sleeps there at night and goes in there whenever we leave her home alone. We are also teaching her house manners, like keeping her paws off the furniture, but she is extremely gentle with us and our other dog, and we have never heard her bark! Angel is a really sweet and playful dog.

Story

Angel is a rescue.

Thanks

to the Winters for being great fosters to Angel!!

Savannah

I am already spayed, housetrained, purebred, good with kids, not good with dogs, and good with cats.

Savannah's Story...

Savannah is a loving yellow lab who is wonderful with people and is looking for a place where she can play freely and be happy!  When her humans moved from their house with a backyard to a smaller townhome, she felt out of place and rattled by all the dogs strutting their stuff by her front window.  Savannah has displayed aggression towards other dogs but gets along great with every other being, including cats and children!

If you are looking to help a sweet older girl finally find a place where she can feel comfortable and give you all the loves, then you've found her :)  Savannah is altered, housetrained,  and getting her vaccinations soon.
