This is Buddy! He's the best 3yr old adventure companion, very affectionate and a huge bundle of joy. He's summited two 14ers and loves going on runs. Buddy is also great at just hanging out and loves being near his foster parents. He's very adaptable - can be energetic or chill depending on the situation. Buddy is also wonderful in the kennel. He sees it as his bedroom and will go in there just to hang out and never whines. At night, when he's tired, he'll just go in for the night.   Buddy is at the perfect size. He thinks he's a lap dog and often lays on people's laps and gives kisses. Buddy is very smart. He knows how to sit and fetch (when he wants to fetch). With that, he sometimes uses his brain to be a little naughty (getting into the garbage and sneaking out of his kennel when not properly locked) Buddy is really good with cats but not great with other dogs. He is very friendly at first approach, sometimes whining with excitement to meet a new friend. He wants to play with other dogs but doesn't always know how. He's usually good with female dogs or similar dog types. He can get jealous when dogs say hi to his foster parents and may come off as protective. Buddy loves his foster family and loves new friends just as much. He loves going on walks and spending time outside. Buddy is looking for a family to emabrace his playful loving side and can fall in love with his big personality. show less

Dex

Female Puppy Labrador Retriever (mixed)

Colorado Springs area only please!! COLORADO SPRINGS area applicants will be given priority consideration at this time.    Dex came to Colorado 9/4/2020, and had demodex mange, and was quite small for her age due to malnutrition. Dex’s all better now though, and has come so far!! She appears to be a lab mix. She has soft slightly wavy hair that will likely not shed too much and cute brindle paws. She is roughly  20-22 lbs currently, at five and a half months old. We estimate she will be around 40-45 pounds full grown, but that’s a guess and certainly no guarantee!    She’s housetrained completely with a dog door, great with other dogs and would be good with most kids. She is in that “every thing must be mouthed”phase, including your hands, feet, nose, chin, hair, etc. but she doesn’t nibble hard and is very easily redirected. It’s just a normal puppy phase. She may be a bit too much puppy for a cat that doesn’t like dogs, but hasn’t met one that we know of. We suspect she’d probably make friends with a friendly cat. She’s very close with several of my dogs, so another doggie friend would be great- even if only on play dates. She plays rough, and takes on my biggest dogs (70 lbs) with glee.    She’s pretty good about not getting into stuff that she shouldn’t, but like any puppy, she needs supervision and a home that’s been puppy-proofed. The yard, especially bushes and flowers, seem to be more fair game though. She’s an excellent helper when you’re doing yard work; she likes to dig.    Dex had been sleeping in her playpen at night, but recently transitioned to sleeping with foster parents in bed... she sleeps thru the night. She would love to sleep in bed with you, as she’s a next level snuggle pro!! Naps with her people are her favorite too. During the day time, she spends her time either playing outside or taking naps on the big dogs’ beds.  She’s independent and often enjoys just being outside laying in the sun by herself. She will get up and take herself outside as needed, so  we would love to see her in a home with a doggie door.    We would also love to see her in a home where she isn’t kenneled for long hours per day either, so someone home a lot or who could take her to work with them would be great. She often naps behind foster mom’s work chair, and is a valuable assistant.    Dex sits on voice or hand command. She’s inquisitive and does a good job of paying attention to her people. She’s independent and not super needy.  She will come to you for snuggles and love though.    Dex is spayed (10/20/20) and will have all her puppy shots, rabies vaccination, and a microchip at the time of adoption.     She will be ready to meet potential adopters beginning around 10/24, but since she was just spayed and also had a BB taken out of her side, we may want to hold her for an extra week to ensure she’s healing well. This is part of why we want to focus on Colorado Springs area homes! show less

Kamala (AKA "Kammie") is a mostly black w tan and white adult female heeler / shepherd mix in foster in Longmont, CO. She's living with four other adult dogs (between 35 and 55 lbs) and gets along well with all of them. Kammie loves to play with and chase after toys of all kinds... balls, ropes, plush toys, squeaky anything. And she and her foster sister Lucy have been playing and rough-housing nearly nonstop since they met on Oct 3 2020.  Kammie has likely had some bad experiences with humans sometimes in the past; she is still nervous with meeting new people... it took a couple-three days for her to feel comfortable enough to be petted indoors by her foster people (her confidence is higher outside, generally speaking) but once she trusts you she loves to be petted, get a belly rub, back scratch, etc. She is still getting used to the idea of living in a nice home to live and snooze in... where loving people will always take good care of her and give her plenty of opportunities for positive experiences to help her forget past traumas. Kamala is full grown at about 45 pounds, estimated to be around 2 years old. She is spayed, microchipped, house trained, crate trained, and doggy-door trained. We think she would be a great fit with an active family who will not only get her out for walks every day, but also adventures during weekends... hikes maybe? She loves wading in water, and is a good swimmer... her foster people think she will really enjoy that activity next summer. Kammie is currently available for adoption and would be best adopted to the same home with her best buddy, Lucy: https://www.petstablished.com/pets/public/865297 If you'd like to meet Kammie to see if she's the perfect forever furry friend for you, please submit an adoption application to RezDawg Rescue today!

Lada is a beautiful 1.5 year old husky mix, and she's spayed, microchipped, and up to date on all of her vaccinations. She loves being outside, playing with toys, and getting petted if it's her idea to come to you! This sweet and joyful girl struggled in foster care because she has a sensitive personality and needs a very consistent and stable environment, but she's now in a wonderful training program where she can blossom into the incredible pet we know that she can be. Important note: Lada is not an apartment dog; she needs an adopter with a good-sized, securely-fenced yard or the equivalent. Sadly, Lada had to be surrendered when her guardian was injured and had to move out of state without her dogs. Lada is very sweet but is having separation anxiety from having her life turned upside down and losing the only home and dog friends she had ever known.  She is currently at Prana Dogs in Durango, a boarding and training facility where she will work on increasing her trust in us humans.  She'll be available for adoption when she's done with her training program there. Lada came to Colorado with a buddy dog, but unfortunately she had a fear-related bite incident with a potential adopter (bite did not require stitches but broke the skin), so her buddy dog was adopted separately, and Lada went to Prana Dogs where she can work with professional trainers to increase her confidence and independence. Once Lada's training program wraps up, she would probably do best in a home with an experienced dog owner who can give her lots of activity as well as reinforce the training she's receiving at Prana Dogs. Lada is a sweet, loyal girl who just went through too many changes in too short of a time. We know that with proper training and a consistent, supportive environment and plenty of patience, she'll blossom into an incredible activity buddy and lifelong companion! show less

  Hello my name is Leeky. I am a loving and energetic 2 year old German Shepard mix looking for my forever home. My two favorite activities are going for walks and snuggling close to my foster humans. I follow my humans around and am eager for their attention.  I am good on a leash, and I am a fast learner as I am smart and am really food and toy motivated. I like to be the dominant dog and I can play a little rough when I get overstimulated, so a meet and greet with your doggie is a must. Although I live with a menagerie of animals and seem to do ok with them, I need supervision as I might just be a little too interested. I have really blossomed in foster care. I will require an experienced adopter ready to step up and be my pack leader. I would benefit from someone dedicated to continuing my training. I still have some insecurities when meeting new people and with resource guarding, but I correct easily with direction from my humans.  I am not ready for dog parks so will require a home with an active family and a fenced yard. I will do ok with children over 12 and a dog friend that will respect my boundaries while I am settling into my new life. With patience, understanding, and guidance I’ll blossom into your best friend. I am spayed, UTD on shots, and microchipped. I am being fostered in Larkspur, CO, and will be available for adoption October 16th, 2020. Masks and social distancing will be observed during our meet and greets. I can't wait to read your applications!   show less

Lil' Lucy is a mostly reddish/tan very young adult female cattle dog? lab? collie? mix in foster in Longmont, CO. She's living with four other adult dogs (between 35 and 55 lbs) and gets along well with all of them. Lucy is full of life and enthusiasm... when she's excited and happy, she is wiggly to the point where it seems like there's two of her! But she is also capable of being calm and quiet and staying in a crate for several hours when her foster people have taken her for her long daily morning walk. She'll fall asleep next to you on the couch or with her head in your lap too. She loves to play with and chase after toys of all kinds... balls, ropes, plush toys, squeaky anything. And she and her foster sister Kammie have been playing and rough-housing nearly nonstop since they met on Oct 3 2020.  We don't know where Lucy was before she ended up at the shelter in Gallup, NM, but regardless, this is one very happy, confident, joyful, loving, and snuggly little dog. Her behavior and overall enthusiasm for everything would lead you to think she's still a puppy, but she's apparently already had her own litter and she appears to be between 10 and 14 months old. Lucy is very smart—among the smartest her foster people have seen—and she is eager to please (and food modivated) but her forever family will need to invest the time and energy in not only giving her daily outlets for her high energy level but also in providing consistent, positive-reinforcement training so she knows what's expected of her and can become a model doggie citizen! Miss Lucy is likely full grown, but she is a little underweight... at about 34 pounds, she should probably pick up a couple-three pounds with consistent nutrition and exercise. She is spayed, microchipped, house trained, crate trained, and doggy-door trained. Lucy has also been heartworm tested (negative). As an adult dog, for an abundance of caution for family members, Lucy should not be adopted to families with children under age 12 (exceptions may be granted after a meet and greet involving both parents and all children in the household). Please note that Lucy has not been DNA tested and her breed makeup is a best guess. As a former stray from the reservation lands near Gallup, NM, she is likely a mix with many different breeds in her genetic makeup. Lucy does seem to have a strong prey drive regarding cats, so she may not be a good fit for homes with a cat in residence. :( Lucy will be available for adoption after Oct. 12 2020. If you'd like to meet Lucy to see if she's the perfect forever furry friend for you, please submit an adoption application to RezDawg Rescue today!

Peaches is looking for her special forever home. She is a petite, approximately 2-year-old, spayed female Border Collie mix UTD on shots and microchipped. She arrived in Colorado scared and underweight at 25 pounds. Peaches’ past has led her to be reserved and she takes time to become comfortable. In the month she has been in foster, she has begun to settle in and is making positive strides. She is acting playfully with the other dogs of the house and takes her cues from them. Currently, she is more comfortable with the other dogs then people so she will absolutely have to be adopted into a home with another confident dog to show her the way. Her Littleton foster is looking for an active but quiet home with a 6’ fenced back yard. Peaches is submissive to people and animals. Peaches will need patient adopters committed to helping her blossom. Her chocolate eyes clearly let you know she wants to trust and accept affection. She may never be a cuddly companion, but once she gives you her trust and bonds to you, she will be a fantastic dog. Plus side, she will not be the dog that barks and jumps up on your guests. Peaches is crate trained, housebroken, walks well on a leash, and uses a dog door. Peaches is being fostered in Littleton, Co. If you are interested in learning more about Peaches, submit an adoption app at RezDawgRescue.org.  Social distancing and masks will be required for all meet and greets. show less

Teddi came to us in April of 2019 as approx. 18mo old, former street dog who had made it with a dog thought to be her brother. She is seriously the most adorable, sweetest dog and has come so far! She has been working hard with PranaDogs Training and now ready for her forever home. With not being exposed to many people as a street dog, Teddi takes some time to trust humans. However, once you earn her trust, there will be a bond between her humans that is very rare and treasured. She needs someone who is understanding and patient with her ability to trust. She is a sweetheart who enjoys having her belly rubbed and won't say no to a butt rub either ;-)  HOUSE REQUIREMNETS FOR TEDDY: -Large fenced property or large fenced yard  -Another confident dog to show Teddy the ropes and for her to bond  -A patient individual who is willing to work with her gradual trust We know her perfect forever home is out there. Will it be you?  TRAINING TIPS: - Have her drag around a 4’ leash until she’s comfortably coming to you when called. A leash-drag has a number of benefits; primarily you’ll be able to step on it to catch her, without reaching toward her face, neck or head (doing this will cause her to flinch back (mentally and physically)). It also provides the added benefit of keeping a dog in check; they’ll step on it from time to time and have to be aware of it thus making them purposely think about something specific. - Keep her in a smaller space rather than a larger one – inside and out; until she’s more comfortable with you. We all think dogs need lots of space but actually anxious dogs do better with less than more. Consider keeping her in a room of the house rather than giving her the entire house. Also this is not the time to let her loose to explore – instead she’s either connected to you or in a small, dog-proof enclosure – otherwise she’ll bolt (at least until she’s bonded).  - She needs a bed or space of her own. Someplace that’s hers; best way to set this up is to bring her home and put her in the spot that’s hers, ideally a crate in a room (not too busy of a room, she’ll be overwhelmed) and have her live in there for at least 24-48 hours. This gives her a chance to watch and learn the routines without having to interact or fall into old patterns. You’ll find that after that time she’ll anchor right back to those spaces when she gets nervous or stressed. - She’s not a dog that’s comfortable in new situations and also one who takes a bit to see/follow routine and settle in. Give her time but don’t push her to explore new places and things. She doesn’t want to. People are enough stress for her. She just wants a house/land to live out her life and find a way to contribute and bond.  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
