Our little Zoe finally found her new forever home. Here’s what her new mom has to say: Zoe has been amazing and is fitting in better then we could have dreamed. She loves all of us but is my shadow and I love it. When I’m gone, she’s my daughter’s shadow. She has really taken to my husband and son as well. She and Sadie are like two peas in a pod. They get along wonderfully and they have not had one single incident. We found Zoe a great bed that she loves, and every morning she hops up on the bed with Sadie and sleeps in with me. She is awesome on our daily walks and loves all the neighbor dogs we walk with. She met our groomer and vet and they both gave her very high marks and said she couldn’t be sweeter and healthier. We can’t thank you enough for our new family member Zoe. She is as sweet as pie and we will spoil the heck out of her. We are truly ecstatic with Zoe and she seems right at home. I can’t believe it has only been a week, I can’t imagine we ever lived without her! Thanks again to Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue for saving our dog Zoe. She means the world to us!
I came to my new home July 10th 2012. There were lots of things for me to explore. Since I live in a dog friendly neighborhood, there are a lot of friends looking at me and wagging their tails when we meet. I get frequent walks. I get to go to the Pearl St farmers market on Sunday mornings seeing lots of other friends. I have gone to Washington Park and walked a lot, rolling in the grass, meeting other pooches, sometimes barking at them.
Last weekend I went to the mountains and rode in the enclosed gondola up to the top where there was all kinds of action going on. I sat in Bens lap all the way up and down. Lots of people stopped to look at me saying that I was so cute. Children petted me. I was pooped out when we came home, but managed to watch Harry Potter in Ben’s lap.
I just got groomed and I smell nice. Some of my poodle fur was trimmed so at least I could feel good during the hot days.
At nights I go and get Ben and Cheryl’s shoes to keep them at my bedside. My bed has squeaky toys along with a rawhide bone for comfort. I often harbor and hide their shoes and then I bring out each shoe when I know I am going to leave for a walk. I have not seen the winter boots/shoes yet.
All in all, I am having fun! I wake up each day, wanting to play, eating and getting treats following Ben and Cheryl from room to room.
I am very happy in my new home!
This happy tale is about Buddy and his mom, Margaret. Buddy, now Walter, was so beloved by his foster parents they wondered if they’d ever find an adopter that loved him as much as they did. As luck would have it, there was someone out there who needed Walter as much as he needed her. Margaret saw Walter online and knew he was meant to be with her. It was a match made in heaven! Margaret says that Walter is the most fabulous thing that has happened to her home in months. He is everyone’s love and friend. Walter enjoys his daily walks and adores going anywhere with his mom whether by foot or car. He is a happy boy and Margaret tells us that she cannot express enough the love and happiness that he has been to her. He is friendly to everyone he meets and treats them all with the same tenderness he has with his mom. Walter is the companion Margaret was searching for and she is the happy home he deserved from the start. A happy ending indeed!
Do you see the contentment in this little girls face? This is Abby, a senior girl that came to us as an owner surrender. The family was having financial and health problems and decided that Abby needed a new home. Placing senior dogs has its own challenges and Abby needed extensive dental care and a huge cyst on her leg removed. But Steve and Carmen saw her on the website and knew right away that she was the one they wanted. A meeting was arranged and Abby had a new home! She is very happy in her new house and is loved beyond imagination. We think she might just be a tad bit spoiled as well, and we couldn’t be more pleased. Thanks, Steve and Carmen, for giving this little girl a chance to spend her golden years with you!
Gidget came to RMCR after being abandoned by her owners and ending up in the Rawlins WY shelter where she spent two long months before a good volunteer there made it his duty to get her into a Rescue. We’re so glad! Gidget attended an adoption event and just happened to be there when Andrew and Roseanna were visiting Petco with their cocker mix Cocoa. Andrew and Roseanna had been looking for a companion for Cocoa, but he didn’t like any of the doggies they had met…until Gidget! And now Gidget has a new forever home with a sweet doggie friend and loving owners. What a wonderful new beginning!
Dear Friends at Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue,
In late summer-early fall of 2011, we adopted Toby. He is a wonderful and perfect addition to our home! Toby, now “Mr. Dude”, has bonded with each one of us in different ways. He and I hang out and play or just snuggle. Dad and Toby play ball, go for walks and play, play, play! He and our daughter are best friends. Toby loves “his girl”! Thank you RMCR aiding us in finding the best dog!
P.S. A note from Toby: Life here is great! I have lots of energy and a fun family. I’m such a good boy! (Mom tells me that all the time.) I’m learning new tricks and making friends wherever I go. Thank you for finding my forever family!
Hello! My name was Sophia but it’s Laci now, though for some reason my nickname is “snickel fritz” and I want to tell you about how I found my forever home.
My new Mum and Dad had a little cocker spaniel called Lola who they loved very much, but sadly she passed away. They missed her so much that when they saw how pretty I was, they fell in love with my beautiful eyes and wanted to give me a home. When we met, I was on my best behaviour, and lets be honest, how could anyone resist me? Before I knew it, I was in the car on my way to a new home.
Because of my allergies I have some new food and some lotion to help stop the itching, so I am very happy.
My favourite toy is a fluffy duck that squeaks, I just love chasing it. I also love my walks to the park and am even getting used to being near other dogs.
Tomorrow is exciting as my brother Ryan is coming over to see me again, he just loves my ears. I’m such a happy girl now, I am very loved and my tail hasn’t stopped wagging. Thank you Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue for helping me find my new family.
Little Ian had been returned to the shelter twice – simply for being a puppy! Some people just don’t understand the energy of a seven month old! Celia saw him on our web site and knew he was the one for her family. Here’s Celia, Dominique, Jasmine and Grant with Ian in his new home. We hope they will be very happy together. From the looks of it, they’re off to a good start.
Shannon shared the following with us about finding Pixie:
I’ve known for years that I was interested in adopting a rescue dog and was looking forward to adopting early next year. However, while perusing rescue sites, I came across Pixie. She sounded too good to be true. I immediately had a strong feeling about her and knew that I would be making a huge mistake to pass her up. I figured that I would send in my application and hope that I had the opportunity to take this beautiful dog home. From the moment I met Pixie, I knew that she was meant to join my family. We bonded almos immediately and have been inseparable since. She has the playful personality of a puppy; ready to greet you with snuggles and kisses when you walk through the door. She also kows how to lounge and relax after a long day at the park. We are perfectly compatible. Thank you so much!!! She’s such a joy!
Coco is another of our sweet Cocker Spaniels that never made it onto the Web site. Word of mouth led her to Carol before we could even post her. Coco came to us from a local shelter and she needed to be spayed and groomed before we could get photos of her to post to our Web site. Her foster mom had heard that Carol was looking to find a new companion after her beloved Brooke had passed away from cancer. So, a meeting was arranged and that was that! Carol has a new companion and Coco has a new forever home! All is well in their world.
