Joey has been Adopted!
Let me introduce you to 6 year old Joey. He is a very handsome black and white Cocker Spaniel with just a touch of brown on his muzzle. Joey came to us after his owner became unable to care for him due to illness and age. Joey is an interesting dog who is learning how to be a dog within society. In other words, Joey has lived since a puppy with an older man in a small apartment. He did not have the opportunity to interact with other dogs and few children. He would be taken out a few times a day for potty but did not get much exercise or activity. Joey was afraid to go outside without a leash when we first got him. Now he will go into the back yard but wants someone to be with him. He does better out there if there is a person and / or another dog or two with him. Joey has been isolated his entire life and the last couple of weeks have opened his eyes to an entire new world and he is changing into a new dog. He had to be slowly introduced to the other dogs in his foster home. At first he did not do well as he wanted to mount everyone, which caused some disagreements within the pack. However, after 4 days with slower and fewer introductions, and with using calming essential oils, an anxiety vest from Calming Companions, and some energy work and behavior training Joey is learning that other dogs are ok and that they can provide canine companionship for him. A rumble here and there with swift correction and re-direction is helping Joey very much. He has picked the dogs in his foster home with whom he will hang out without mounting. The others he still wants to mount or attack so they are kept separately when Joey is roaming free in the house. It has been challenging yet interesting working with Joey and seeing how intelligent he is. Joey will need a person who will continue to work consistently with his behavior challenges and socialization. Joey’s foster mom can answer your questions about him and his progress.
Joey is healthy and has a beautiful, soft coat. He was never given dog food, only human food which his owner would cook for him as he cooked his own food. He would eat only beef, chicken, turkey and pork chops, that’s it. They certainly were dinner companions. He had a vet check-up just before coming to us and the vet said that he had never seen a Cocker with such good ears. (A great promotion for home prepared meals for dogs). As an adopter you will be given instructions as how to do prepare home cooked meals if you desire to keep that up for Joey. In the foster home Joey is still getting his meat cooked with added veggies with the intention of trying to get him to transfer over to kibble if he will do so, but as his foster mom I can’t recommend highly enough the home cooked diet.
Joey will be microchipped, neutered, have a cherry eye repaired, and his teeth cleaned, as well as being up to date on his shots before adoption. If you would like to learn more about Joey and talk to his foster mom please fill out an adoption application on line and you will be contacted for an interview.
Joey’s adoption fee will be $250.00

This is Mollie and she has a sad start to her story… Mollie and her brother were abandoned when her family left their home in January. Someone did come and “adopted” her brother. Mollie was “adopted” for a little while too but the people that took her brought her back and dumped her back into the empty house. This is where Mollie’s story starts to look up… the sweet next door neighbor found Mollie and tried to take care of this baby as best she could. She wasn’t able to take Mollie into her home as she has dogs of her own. She did her best to feed and look after Mollie. Not long after this RMCR got a call to see if we could help find Mollie the forever home she so deserves.
We don’t know exactly how old Mollie is but we guess she is around 7-8 years young. She is spunky and loves to chase her ball and play with her foster brothers and sister. She loves to cuddle with her foster mom and her foster mom enjoys that quite a bit.. she feels like velvet! She gives sweet little kisses and just loves to be loved. She is potty trained and crate trained. She seems to adapt to new situations very well. She is a true little bundle of joy. She does fine with the cat in the house.. doesn’t even seem to notice he is there. We don’t know how she will do with kids but her foster mom thinks if she does end up in a home with kids they need to be over the age of 10. Mollie needs someone that will pamper and love her to bits!
Mollie is spayed and micro-chipped. RMCR will ensure she is current on all her vaccinations. If you would like to meet Mollie please fill out an online adoption application. Mollie’s adoption fee is $250.

This is Zero. He is a precious and wonderful 3 year-old and has lots of energy. He has the waggiest tail there is! Zero needs a home with a fenced yard. He is protective over his toys and food. He is great with kids, but we aren’t sure how he will do with other dogs/cats. Zero is a cocker mix and we think his daddy may have been a corgi. His foster says “He’s one of the sweetest dogs I’ve ever met. Someone interested in a true companion dog will be very lucky to have this one! He’s a doll!”
Zero is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and is micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Zero, please fill out an online adoption application. Zero’s adoption fee is $250.

This little cutie is Pippin. Pippin is 8 years old and is a sweetie. He does have some possession aggression and does not like to share his toys (even with his humans). Because of this we believe Pippin would do well as an only dog and without kids. He is potty trained and even though he isn’t thrilled about a crate he will go into one.
Pippin is current on his vaccinations is neutered and RMCR will make sure he is micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Pippin please fill out an online adoption application. Pippin’s adoption fee is $250.

Meet Winston! This handsome little man is approximately 9 years old and is so full of love and spirit! Winston is a male Cocker Spaniel that was rescued from a shelter in Memphis, TN where he was due to be euthanized that same day. He had heart worms, double ear infections, both eyes were very infected, and he had a severe skin infection as well. It has been several months since he was rescued and he is now heart worm free (received his treatment in December) and his eyes and ears are all clear! He does suffer from chronic dry eye but it is very easily managed with daily eye drops…and he sits very still for them! He is finishing up his medication for his skin infection and it is almost 100% gone! Winston had a pretty tough life, but he is such a trooper and will make a wonderful furry addition to your family. He gets along great with dogs and cats, he LOVES the dog park, does well on and off leash, and is also kennel trained. Please consider welcoming Mr. Winston into your home where he will get all the love and special attention he deserves!
Winston is current on vaccinations, RMCR will make sure Winston is neutered and micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Winston please fill out an online adoption application. Winston’s adoption fee is $250.

Hi! I am Snoopy one of the 11 Oklahoma Rescue Dogs and I am sure glad to be here in Denver in my nice foster home! My vet here thinks that I am about 4 years old but I think I act like and have the energy and zest for life of a younger dog, even though 4 isn’t that old. My foster mom tells me that I am one of the most handsome dogs she has rescued and she says that I look like I could be in that Westminster Dog Show I have heard about, if it wasn’t for my long tail. Ha, I got to keep my tail! Anyway, I am getting an ear infection and a skin infection on my tail taken care of now by my vet, and I am going to be getting my teeth cleaned the end of January. I had a cherry eye fixed while I was back in Oklahoma and my vet is watching it here to be sure it has healed completely. I am a happy and active dog and would love to have a forever home where I can be played with and be allowed to become part of a loving family. I am doing great with other dogs in my foster home. I have not been around little children so I don’t know how I would act around them. I don’t get along really well with cats. They are fun to chase and try to eat. I do get concerned with men I don’t know but I will quit barking at them once I know them and can trust them. I haven’t done any snapping at anyone and I like to give kisses. I’m good at the vet. I do have a little problem with house training but my foster mom has been working on that and she says I am doing much better now but that I will need help in my new home with reminders to go outside.
Snoopy is neutered, current on vaccinations and micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Snoopy, please fill out an online adoption application. Snoppy’s adoption fee is $250.

My name is Little Guy. My real name is Kalalau, but Little Guy was so much easier for my foster mom! I’m a lively little 12 year old. I recently lost my family when they had to move and were unable to take me. Since I am a senior I have a few health issues but they are all managed with low cost medication. I have low thyroid and a mild heart condition, neither of which slow me down. I also don’t hear very well, but my sense of smell is amazing! I lived at 8,000 ft and was as active as the younger dogs in my foster home. I am good with dogs of all sizes and am not interested in cats. I am a great little companion who would love to be someone’s lap warmer. I ride well in the car and am good on a leash. I also know sit and down and can use a doggie door.

This is Tank. Tank is a very sweet 4-year-old boy. He has some energy and would do great with a family that has kids over the age of 10 who would play with him or with someone who will take him for lots of long walks. He does enjoy down time too. He LOVES to cuddle. He currently sleeps in bed with his foster mom and loves to be very close to her at night. He gets along wonderfully with other dogs and doesn’t care about the cat in the house. But would probably do best as an only dog because he LOVES his attention. His little tail and butt wiggle just about constantly. He is a very happy guy. He is learning some basic obedience but will need someone to help him learn more, obedience classes should be in the plans with his forever family . Tank was an owner surrender because they didn’t have time to spend with him. He has spent most of his life outdoors. Because of this he does like to try to take off and run when doors are opened so he will need to learn to sit, stay/wait at the door or in a car until he is on a leash. He is crate trained but would prefer to be out running free in the house. Tank is neutered, up to date on vaccinations and is microchipped.
If you are interested in meeting Tank, please make sure you’ve completed an online adoption application. His adoption fee is $250.

Dexter is a sweet little girl who is about six years old and has the most beautiful and unusual blue eyes. Her gentleness reminds us of a guardian angel. She came to us after having been rescued from being indiscriminately used for breeding. She wants love and attention very much. Perhaps she was mishandled in her prior breeding facility but is very willing to trust once she knows she can.
Dexter is on the small side, which makes her all the much more appealing to cuddle. She is up to date on her shots, is spayed and micro chipped. Dexter is a quiet little dog who will love you without condition. She is crate trained, house trained, obeys well, and walks well on a leash. She has not been exposed to cats to my knowledge but has done well in a foster household with several other foster dogs. She is not as playful as the other dogs she is around but likes to be in their presence watching them play, once in a while joining in. She has done well with a variety of people including children. Perhaps Dexter would do best in a household that is not quite as active as a dog who wants to run and play all of the time, but would be included and allowed to be there at your feet, wherever you are in the house or the yard.
If you are interested in Dexter, please make sure you’ve completed an online adoption application. Her adoption fee is $250.
