Fergie is a loving adult dog, estimated to be 4 to 5 years old, recently arrived to Colorado from Gallup, New Mexico. She is a devoted girl who would love to stay by her person's side (or under their desk) and guard their home (she barks if she hears or sees something outside she feels is noteworthy). Fergie has a shiny, soft, and deep black coat with brown accents and is full-grown and medium-sized at about 43 pounds. Her personality is mellow overall but she is also playful; Fergie loves to play with squeaky dog toys and to retrieve them for people too. Of course, she loves going on walks or hikes or other outdoor adventures. Fergie likes to splash around in water... given the opportunity, she will probably like to swim! Watch this video: https://youtu.be/96i3kRkzWu4 She is being fostered in Longmont, CO, where she lives with four other dogs (from 20 lbs to 55 lbs) and gets along with all of them. Fergie is house trained, leash trained, crate trained, and doggie-door trained. She is spayed, up to date on shots, and ready to go to her forever home. She is calm on car rides (and she doesn't get car sick). Fergie will make a wonderful fur buddy for some lucky family or person! If you're like to meet Miss Fergie and see if she's the right dog for your home or family, please submit an adoption application to RezDawg Rescue today!  RezDawg's adoption fees cover rescue and transportation costs, spay/neuter, microchip, deworming and vaccinations to bring the animals up-to-date at their time of adoption. You save a bundle of money by adopting from a non-profit—and even more importantly, you allow RezDawg to save another animal from being euthanized. ALL funds are used to save and support the animals! show less

Hilda’s story captured the hearts of many here at RezDawgs and beyond….  She and her two puppies were dumped at the end of a driveway in rural New Mexico - emaciated, infected with tapeworms and suffering from a painful, itchy skin condition. Hilda was lucky enough to catch a ride on one of our transports to Colorado and has been in the loving care of one of our dedicated foster families since March 1st.  Hilda’s transformation has been amazing! She has gained 18 pounds and is now at a healthy weight of 63 pounds. Her tapeworms are gone and with the help of medication (Apoquel), her skin condition has healed up nicely. We are not certain yet whether she will require medication long term.   Hilda is a very sweet, mild mannered/mellow, happy dog who tends to be a little timid initially. However, once you gain her trust, she is very affectionate and loyal. Hilda loves her people and will gladly follow them from room to room just to be close.  Now that she’s medically rehabilitated, Hilda is ready to meet her forever family! She is house and crate trained, walks well on a leash, is very smart and learns quickly. Hilda gets along well with dogs and cats with proper introductions. Like many rescue dogs, she would benefit from some training to address her prey drive and manners when meeting other dogs on leash.  The ideal home for Hilda would have a yard with a 6’ fence (this athletic girl can jump!). While she is friendly with children, her size and enthusiasm mean that she would do best in a home with no small children. An active owner who will be able to include Hilda in their outdoor adventures would be wonderful!   Interested in discussing a meet-and-greet? Please apply to adopt today! Our adoption fees cover transport from a reservation or high-intake shelter, vaccinations, deworming, food, alteration, any needed treatments and microchipping for identification. We foster our animals in homes around Colorado instead of one central facility, so your adoption payment goes further toward helping more animals find safe homes filled with love. show less

  Noodle is a One year old Border Collie mix with some special needs. We dont have a definite  diagnosis but believe Noodle has a minor case of Hydrocephalus. Noodle needs a human that is home more frequently than not and an individual who based a very loving heart and some patience as he needs redirection and consistency. He listen well and eager to please but forgets quickly :( He varies day to day. He is super sweet and loves affection. Fairly quiet guy that gets spurts of energy. Great with dogs and would do best with another playful pup. He loves playing chase and wrestling with his other dog buddies. Noodle absolutely loves playing with his toys as well. He would make a great w Noodle must have a secure yard as he needs time and the space to roam while he is learning to potty train. Potty training is going to be something that is going to take time and we cannot guarantee he will ever be 100% house trained...at the same time he has no problem going potty outside. His future prognosis is not known... he can develop seizures and perhaps live until 5 or he can live a perfectly happy life for the next 12 years. Although we do not of a definite diagnosis, Im pretty sure it's a mild case and since he is a little older(one year) he should live a happy,healthy life.   Noodle needs his special angel that is going to be there and accept him for who he is. If you know of a special person that would love to welcome Noodle into their life please contact RezDawg Rescue. He truly is a special boy with a good soul. alking companion and walks great on a leash. He is also crate trained and does not have any separation anxiety.  Our adoption fees cover transport from a reservation or high-intake shelter, vaccinations, deworming, food, alteration, any needed treatments and microchipping for identification.

Are you looking for a small, housetrained, crate-trained, and very loyal and playful pint-sized adult dog? Panda may be your new furever buddy! About four to five years old and 21 pounds, Panda is looking for a family or person who will include her in their daily lives, take her on walkies, and throw the tennis ball for her. She is a lot of fun and very attentive. She's very fast, agile, and confident!  Panda currently lives with four much-larger dogs at her foster home and gets along great with them; however, she does take some time to warm up to new dogs. Panda may not be appropriate for a home with cats (it depends on the cat... a confident, stand-its-ground cat that will not hesitate to swat a dog to show it who's in charge may be fine). IMPORTANT: Panda's forever home needs to have a yard for her to "do her business"... she's quite particular about this. Panda is spayed, microchipped, up to date on shots, and ready to go home to her forever home.  Here's a video of Panda happily retrieving a tennis ball, on her very first day with her foster person after transport from NM! https://youtu.be/_d-wbAaG4gE And here's Panda initiating play (the video doesn't capture most of the play session, unfortunately) with her foster big brother, Jeff: https://youtu.be/YN2HakN5Js8 And this is Panda running happily at an off-leash area, sprinting back after being called by name: https://youtu.be/HlCwJhMBNiQ Be sure to follow RezDawg Rescue on Facebook and Instagram!

Hi! My name is Peanut and I'm currently being fostered in Boulder, CO. I was living on the streets for awhile before some nice people in New Mexico found me and got me on a transport to Colorado! I love my new life - I spend lots of time chasing squirrels in the backyard, rolling around in the grass, and playing with all my new toys (I especially love the squeaky ones). I love walks but I'm still learning the rules, sometimes I try to chase cars if I think they're going too fast. I'm happy to hang out in a crate for a few hours, especially with a peanut butter snack, but I've been doing well with free roam of the house too. Sometimes I steal shoes while my foster mom is gone and I'm lonely, but I don't chew on them! Right now I live with another dog, and we get along great! It did take me some warm up time though, I'm a bit protective of my people and my space. I've also spent some time hanging out with a cat and didn't mind his company at all. I haven't met any kids, but I do play kind of rough so I shouldn't move into a house with small children. If you'd like to meet me, please fill out an adoption application! Also please double check that the place you live allows pit mixes!

"Hi! My name is Rosita, but my foster family calls me Lucy. Although I have recently had puppies, I am a young dog and very much a puppy at heart myself. I am a small to med dog at 25 lbs. Big enough to handle any adventure, but small enough to pick up and carry. I am a total cuddle bug and I think that I make a good lap dog! I also suffer from a severe case of wiggle-butt that wracks my whole body! I LOVE my people, including older children (but since I tend to jump up to get closer, I may have too much enthusiasm for young children). I LOVE to spend my days outdoors rolling in the grass and keeping a close eye on the squirrels (I am OBSESSED) so a fenced yard is a MUST! A doggie door would be ideal! I LOVE to play with other dogs so I would do best in a household with another dog buddy. At my foster home, I delighted in playing with my five puppies and my housemate and best friend, a five pound Chihuahua. I haven’t been cat-tested. I am still working on leash training as I tend to pull (I am so excited to go explore!), but I display good recall off-leash. I am hoping to find an active family with whom I can share a lifetime of cuddles, kisses, hikes and adventures!" Rosita is being fostered in Boulder, CO.

Hi! My name is Boots! I am still very puppy-like and am such a lover. I have had a difficult past. I had some humans that didn't treat me so well, so I am skiddish when I first meet a new human. Once I get to know a human, I am learning to trust them. Once I trust them, I looooove them! I will give kisses and play. I get along great with other dogs, big and small. I play well with older children. I haven't been exposed to young children yet, but I am sure I would do well if they weren't rough with me. I learned how to use the doggy door at my foster home in about a week and a half - that was after I learned what it was like to be inside a house for the first time. I was fascinated the first time a saw a television and was very confused by stairs in the beginning. I have adjusted well and I am a wonderful friend. I do pretty well with a leash as long as I am wearing a harness because I do not like to be choked by a collar. I need to be in a calm home with humans that are not yellers. I need a lot of positive reinforcement because I am very smart, but still will revert to being scared if anyone comes towards me too fast or appear to be aggressive. I might have had objects thrown at me before, so I do not yet understand fetch. I will chase and wrestle other dogs all day long though! I will be an amazing adventure dog one day and I would probably thrive from long walks/hikes. I just need humans that will be patient with me while I learn to trust them, then I will be forever loyal to them.
