AVAILABLE FOR ADOPTION: June 15, 2020 Adah is a funny, happy, sweet little sprite of a dog. She came to the rescue under weight, possibly abused and very pregnant. Three weeks later she gave birth to 5 gorgeous, chunky pups! She did an amazing job raising those pups, and now, Adah is ready to find her permanent home. She's been quick to learn a lot of manners while being in her foster home, but will continue to need work on socialization, particularly with stranger danger. Slow introductions are best for her with new people. This has been difficult to work on with the Stay-at-Home orders.She has been protective of, loyal to, and very connected with her human foster family. She wants nothing more than to be loved by them. She's a cuddler! She exhibited some food aggression when she first arrived, but her table manners have improved greatly! All the dogs in her home eat in a separate area simultaneously and she now respects that not all food is hers. She gets along great with her 2 foster sisters. Initially, she thought a gentle face nibble was a good way to greet new dog friends. She might still regress to that greeting when she's excited or nervous, but if reminded to "leave it", she will abide. Cats are not recommended, unless you have a super chill cat that is completely non-plussed by dogs. If you have a runner, she will chase it! There are 3 cats in her foster home that she's learned to leave alone. She will need a patient, gentle, but firm leader. Adah is ready to be someone's best friend. She is a love! STRONG POINTS: Wants to be connected/loved, Loyal, Very bright, quick learner, Adorable dragon ears, House-trained, Gets along with other dogs, Upon introduction of new fruits, she attacks them, ninja-style, Loves to entertain herself with pine cones   THINGS THAT WILL CONTINUE TO NEED ATTENTION: Getting comfortable with meeting strangers, Not kennel trained   THINGS THAT WON'T WORK: Small children under 12, Cats, Apartments, show less

--Chaco had a little bit of a rough start in life, he was found alone and abandoned on a road near Gallup at just 7 weeks old. He was malnourished and mangey still adorable but a just a different kind of adorable. His legs were bending in places legs shouldn't bend because he had rickets from lack of nutrition, his hair wasn't soft and he smelled like no puppy should. Chaco has grown out of his rickets and now has a super soft velvety coat and eyes that when you look into them he would never let you imagine how sad he truly was. Chaco was neutered early December and we found out he had a few heart defects that would cut his life short. January 7th Chaco had a successful surgery to fix a PDA, and in April he will have his aortic valve opened up some so he will get the right amount of blood flow. RezDawg Rescue is covering the cost of his surgery in April, if we can't raise it on his gofund me. Link for that is here        gf.me/u/w7bht9 along with notes from CSU, his news clip from FOX 31 and pictures and videos of his progress. Chaco will need annual echoes done and most likely he will be on a daily heart medication. (Limitations on excessive excerise is still being determined by the vet). Chaco has come a long way since making his way to CO the end of October. During his recovery time in his foster home he has always been very sweet with an amazing personality. Chaco is playful and curious. He would do best with older children. Chaco gets a little excited about cats but does not harm them. His foster cat brother usually puts him in his place. He's doing awesome with kennel training and house training too! Since his surgery in January Chaco has been learning to walk on leash. He does need training on leash when meeting other dogs. Chaco loves cuddles and LOVES toys. His personality is more like a Heeler than a Shepared. If you don't know your way to the dog food, or bathroom, he will show you the way! He wants to go everywhere his human goes. He is currently fostered with two other dogs and is learning to respect his place in the pact.  If you would like to know more about Chaco, please contact us. Thanks!  show less

Teddy 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. He was the stronger of the pair, she the follower. Her brothers go-to behavior was to aggress and fight for what they needed.  Tedi now lets me love on her completely but it took more than 6 months! Watches me with other dogs a lot and at first only let me pet her when she was in her crate, but after months of that she began letting me do it more and more if the other dogs were around. Today, I can even touch her when we’re one-on-one. Huge for a dog her age who was – for all intents and purposes – close to feral.  She struggles with trust; especially with people. Typically, the older these dogs are the longer it takes them to trust, but there are things we can do to help hasten the process.  Management 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 really needs a dog to bond to. Here she’s closest to a female, 35# heeler mix. She came in with her brother and was very close to him. She’s comfortable sleeping with different dogs and playing with different dogs. But dogs like Tedi are WAY more comfortable with dogs than people and need to see us interacting with dogs to trust us. 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. Let her watch you and see you interact with other dogs. This is huge to dogs! They need to see how you are with others so they know what to expect. Anticipation is everything for anxious dogs; be sure to call out to her as you walk toward her crate and if you’re used to working with horses….many of those same strategies work. Noises can also be terrifying to these dogs – even the quietest most benign of noises….watch patterns and adjust accordingly. Note: Tedi leans toward the soft side. If things go sideways she gets out of dodge. She’d rather not engage in a fight and plays dead rather than fights back L Long term To succeed she’ll need time, support and patience. And lots of it. She’s a dog that will take months of familiar routine to really begin to let her guard down and trust. That’s not to say it’s not going to happen, it’s just going to take time and patience – a lot more than any other dog you’ve ever dealt with. I will also note that once you get there, you’ll have a stronger bond than with other dogs who didn’t have to lean on you for so much support.  Doesn’t necessarily like to be outside – she’s just so nervous of people she goes where the dogs are. Now that we’ve built trust she’s more often in the house and on the couch than not, but she’s a solid dog. When we walk on the property she runs and does her thing but is always in earshot and is always back to the gate when it’s time to come in.   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 possible bond. She loves belly rubs and is getting really fond of butt rubs too J Our adoption fees cover transport from a reservation or high-intake shelter, vaccinations, deworming, food, alteration, any needed treatments and microchipping for identification.
