Walter 14-041

Arrived 4/7/2014

My name is Walter and I am a male, 3-5 yrs old, I am neutered, house trained, about 22 pounds and I love to sleep near you. I have spent my whole life in a kennel as a puppy mill boy and I am not so found of being crated up for very long. However I do find it to be a little comforting to have my place to go to when I am over stimulated by my surrounding.
Because of my past I am still not used to the sounds of your world and the things my Foster mom has introduced me to.
Leashes are little intimidating.
I really don’t know what play is but I have found out that the basket of squeaky and fuzzy things are fun to take and put in my bed to keep me company at night when I am sleeping. I like to do it after you are in bed, so no one sees me.
I have has a couple of things she calls “accidents” but now that I am not afraid of the dogie door, I take care of my business like the other dogs in the house.
I will shy away from new people and things but I will not harm you, I am learning that people are good to me. I was afraid of my food bowls and treats being handed to me but I am enjoying that much more now. I like to be petted and my belly rubbed and after I learn about you little more, I will come to you when encouraged. My tail is a wiggly one and I am finding that it does that more than it used to, I think it is because I am free to be me and learning is a wonderful experience.
Please consider letting me be your special forever companion, I need and want all the love I can get. And be gentle with me as I have a lot of life to learn about and enjoy!!

Jett 13-003

 

***ADOPTED***

Hi there! My name is Jett and I’m about 6 years young. I’m a little bit taller than other cockers (so you may want to keep things of the edge of the counter) and I also have a full tail that loves to wag. I came to Rocky Mountain Cocker Rescue from a hoarding situation in Oklahoma. When I arrived at my foster mom’s house I was marking a bit, but she thinks it’s because there were 3 boys in the house and we all wanted to establish our territory. I don’t do that anymore and am a pro at the doggy door. I’m always the first one out in the morning.

After arriving in Colorado, I got a haircut and got checked out by the vet who told me I have something in my left eye that’s made me lose some of my eyesight. It requires some daily medicine to prevent it from getting worse, but I let my foster mom put it in without too much fuss.

Anyway, all of my friends from Oklahoma have been adopted but I’m still looking for my forever home. I’m not sure what happened to me back there, it’s probably best if I don’t remember, but it made me fearful and unsure sometimes so in the past I’ve growled and snapped occasionally at strangers. My foster mom is taking me to training classes in October so I can learn to be the best canine citizen I can be. Hopefully you’ll want to meet then but I will need a family that is patient, firm, and understanding.

You are probably wondering how I would fit with your people. My foster mom tells me that I’m generally a very happy and easy-going guy. I get along fine with my foster siblings but I mostly prefer playing with my toys.  I love stuffed animals, ropes, balls, but especially anything that squeaks! My FAVORTIE thing to do is take one of my toys and roll around with it under my back and make funny noises, which makes everybody laugh. I haven’t been around any very young kids so I’m not sure if I should be in a house with any.

Jett is neutered, current on vaccinations and is micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Jett please fill out an online adoption application. Jett’s adoption fee is $300.
