Hi this is Louie. Louie is a sweet, goofy and shy 6 month old puppy who loves to wrestle and play with his brother. He loves to play outside and run with the bigger dogs in the pack. Though he is shy with positive encouragement and support he gains more and more confidence. I think sometimes he would love to be a big lap dog, but then other times he is all about having fun and be where the action is. Loves to play outside and bask in the sun. Louie would do best with an older dog to help him continue to gain confidence. He can be vocal so would do best in a home vs. an apartment. Would love for him to find an active person or family with a yard who would work with him to gain more confidence. He loves being close to his people and pack and is a sweet cuddle bug. He is neutered and up to date on shots. If interested in making Louie a part of your family please complete an application at www.rezdawgrescue.org. Louie is currently being fostered in Elizabeth, CO. 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

Hi my name is Lucy! I am a little over one year old. I came from New Mexico with my two puppies. I do not know my exact heritage, but I likely descend from Australian shepherds and German shepherds. My pups have been adopted and I am free to be a puppy myself again. I am intelligent, love playing with other dogs, and am friendly with cats as well. My favorite activities are sprinting in the snow and napping in the sunshine. I am house and crate trained and am already learning commands such sit, stay and touch. My foster family is helping me to become desensitized to cars, the leash, and entry ways. I am looking for an owner that could be patient and calm as I adjust to my new home and come to trust them. My ideal home has a large yard, with active, determined yet laid-back people. Lucy is being fostered in Grand Junction, CO. Interested in setting up a meet-and-greet? Please apply to adopt so that we can see if she’s a good fit for your family.

Hi! My name is Marvin. I am a one-year-old pit/lab mix weighing about 50 pounds. I love to snuggle, take multiple naps a day, give kisses, stay close to my humans, and romp ar I was rescued from New Mexico and have been loving the Colorado life. I love to take walks, run around a fenced area, and learn new tricks. Right now, I’m a very good sitter. I would love to go to an active household, but think I’m too big and energetic for an apartment. I live right now with three dogs, all of which I get along with. I don’t do great with dogs who are dominant or territorial, so I think a home with submissive siblings would be best. If you’d like to meet me, please schedule a meet and greet today! I am up-to-date on my shots and have been neutered. So when I find the right match, I am ready to be in my forever home! Hope to meet you soon and give you one of my super gentle kisses. ound with other dogs at the dog park, but not if they’re a dominant male type.

Pearl is a courageous, 5lb. survivor of abuse who's required extra time with her foster family to overcome medical issues and extreme fear. She spent 2 months recovering from bordetella and a nasty flea infestation and the last 3 months learning to engage more confidently in daily household activities. She's progressed to accepting treats politely -- even sitting when asked sometimes! -- instead of snatching them and running to hide, relaxing into gentle neck and back massages and waiting her turn to be fed. She lives with a foster pack of 2 older male chis and an elderly female cattle dog. They have helped her gain confidence in various doggie activities new to her, but due to her fearful background, she keeps them at a physical and emotional distance, growling and snapping if they enter her "bubble" of space. Therefore, for everyone's peace of mind, she would do best in a quiet household where she is the only dog. She's afraid of strangers. Visitors, even regular ones, must be patient because it takes time for her to warm up to them, and the acquaintance process can't be rushed. Humans need to have enough patience to follow her lead. Her tolerance of cats and other types of pets is unknown. An important note about children: she should not be around them at any time. Their quick movements and high energy and just too overwhelming and scary to her. As her fear retreats, her playfulness has increased. Sometimes, she gets the morning zoomies or wrestles with a stray sock whe her people are starting their day. Occasionally, she'll pull a floppy toy out of the toy basket, shake it, toss it and growl delightedly. She does have an inordinate fear of squeaky toys and will quickly disappear if she hears the noise, but socks and floppy toys are very fun! She thoroughly enjoys car rides, especially if she can sit in a booster seat to see out the windows. She'll slip out the house door to prance around a car outside or in a garage, even if it's cold, if she knows her people are leaving. Her fave activity in the whole world is snuggling any time of day or night. The physical contact helps her feel secure. She'll gaze at her people adoringly and is an excellent listener, accepting everything said with deep interest and no judgment. She's always on her people's team! At night, she likes to be bundled in her crate full of warm, soft, comfy blankies. If she has a night terror or sometimes even if she doesn't, she may ask to get in bed with her people. There, she sleeps without moving in the crook of a knee or touching a warm back. She is housetrained, but hasn't learned to ask to go out, so it's best if she stays on a regular schedule for potty breaks. She would prefer not to go outside when it's freezy, but she will if placed outside the door and told to "go pee." If it's absolutely frigid outside or she must be at home alone for more than a couple of hours, she's very good about using pee pads where ever they're placed. She does exhibit some separation anxiety, vocalizing her dismay, when one of her people leaves, but can be distracted with snuggles, so it's not a serious issue. If you have experience with chihuahuas and you're willing to help continue Pearl's recovery while dealing patiently with her eccentricities, you'll be rewarded with intense and lifelong love and loyalty.
