Allow us to introduce Maggie! She is a four year old buff female Cocker Spaniel who is an owner surrender. The owners have had Maggie most of her life, but all family members are allergic to dogs and the situation is getting worse rather than improving, so with a heavy heart they are looking to find her a new home.
Maggie has been cared for very well. She is family and kid friendly and loves to play. She would benefit from some continued training but she is house trained and uses a dog door, so we highly recommend that her new owners have that facility available for her, otherwise there could be accidents. She is OK with other dogs and cats, although she likes to play with the cats who might view this behavior as aggression. Maggie has been known to escape a fenced yard when there were low spots in the fence line, so care will need to be taken to ensure gaps are closed. She loves her toys!
Maggie is spayed and up to date with her vaccinations. If she is not already microchipped, RMCR will ensure that’s done for her new owners.
If you are interested in Maggie, please make sure you have an online adoption application on file. Maggie’s adoption fee is $250.

Daisy is a nine year old black female Cocker Spaniel that is looking for a new home. She is an owner surrender. The family has two other dogs with which Daisy has never bonded. The family dynamics make it difficult to deal with the interactions of the three dogs and they feel Daisy would be better off in a different environment. Daisy is very sweet and loving dog and would do better with an owner that can give her the attention she deserves.
Daisy loves to be a lap dog, and gets along with her Foster’s dogs, two males about 7 years old. Daisy doesn’t seem to mind cats at all.
Daisy is spayed, up to date on her vaccinations and is house trained. RMCR will ensure that she has a microchip if she does not already have one. If you are interested in Daisy, please make sure you have an online adoption application on file. Daisy’s adoption fee is $250.

Cita is a lovely mink or sable colored, spayed female Cocker Spaniel who is about 3 ½- 4 years old. She is quiet, obedient, polite, and loves to be a best friend. Cita was surrendered to us with her companion cocker, Paco, who you will see in a separate write up. They were best buddies in their home and were surrendered because their family was moving to a no-dog apartment. Cita is housetrained and crate trained and does well with other dogs. She has been in a home with a toddler and has done well. Cita loves to be outdoors looking around and enjoying the outdoor scents. It would be heavenly if Cita and Paco could be adopted together but if that is not on their future please consider having another companion dog in your home for Cita. Cita does attach to humans rather quickly and loves to shadow and cuddle with her humans. She is up to date on her immunizations, is microchipped and will have her teeth cleaned before adoption. She does need leash training so that she does not take so much control on a walk by pulling ahead. Cita is a wonderful and loving dog whom I would love to call my own.
If you would like to meet Cita please fill out an online adoption application.
Cita’s adoption fee is $250.00

This is beautiful and sweet Jewels. She is 6 years old and is an owner surrender.
Her owners feel that she would do better in a home with a quieter environment with owners that could offer her more attention. Jewels would do well as an only dog in a home with older children. She has, in the past, tweaked her back, possibly rough-housing with the other two dogs in her home, but with pain management medication and steriod shots, has overcome her injuries. The family feels that more normal activity level would lessen the possibility that she reinjure herself. Jewels is house trained and kennel trained.
If you are interested in meeting Jewels, please make sure you have an online adoption application on file. Jewels is spayed and RMCR will make sure that she is current on all vaccinations and micro-chipped. Jewels’ adoption fee is $250.

Sandy has an adoption pending!
Sandy is an eight year old buff colored spayed female Cocker Spaniel. Her owner has MS and will be moving to a new residence where she cannot have a dog. As you can see from her photos, Sandy loves to play in the snow! She knows several commands such as sit and stand. She’s fairly quiet and shy, only barking when someone comes to the door. She has never been kenneled. We don’t know how she reacts to children or cats, so perhaps a home without toddlers and cats would be best.
RMCR will ensure that Sandy is up to date on all vaccinations and microchipped for a new owner. If you are interested in meeting her, please make sure you have an online application completed and on file. Her adoption fee is $250.

If you have a thing for sweets then this is the girl for you! Sugar is a 5 to 6 year old little lady who was surrendered to us by her previous owner who had recently moved and was no longer able to keep her.
Not much is known about her past but it is assumed by her foster mom and veterinarian that she was bred frequently and as a result of that and perhaps a poor diet she has lost most of her eyesight. The best way to describe her condition is to say that if she were human she would be considered legally blind but she is still able to make out contrasts and movement and loves to tag along. Her foster mom says not to feel sorry for her though because she’s a remarkable little dog and inspires everyone she meets. Once she “maps” out her surroundings you can easily forget she’s impaired.
She’s great with other dogs, cats and kids but since snuggling up with someone on the couch for a nice nap is one of her favorite things to do she would also be happy having someone all to herself. She is house broken but might need a little patience while figuring out where things are, which doesn’t take long. Once that’s done she’ll let you know just like any sighted doggy that she is in need. A little extra care might be needed to make sure that her outdoor area is safe, but given that, she’ll get a long fine outside by herself and would do well with a doggy door. We think she has every right to be upset about all that she’s been through but instead she’s a happy little girl without a destructive bone in her body. She enjoys all of the things that any happy dog would but with an extra dose of sweetness and fortitude.
She has recently been spayed and had her teeth cleaned. She had an ear infection when she came to us but is in good shape now. She is also up to date on her shots. Even though she’s slightly on the chubby side she’s still petite and now that she’s out of the puppy making business and on a better diet she’ll be in shape in no time.
There is no doubt that this sweet little girl will be a loving and loyal companion to the lucky person/family that gives her the forever home she deserves.

Meet sweet little Nikki!! Nikki came to us from a hoarding situation in Oklahoma, with multiple health problems. She is a total lovebug, very gentle and happy with all people. Nikki sleeps in a large open metal crate and does fine with that. She walks nicely on a leash and rides well in the car. She is housetrained and loves all toys, especially soft squeaky toys.
Due to her prior situation, Nikki was not well cared for. We think she is about 10 years old. She has had severe allergies left untreated for a long time, which have caused possible permanent damage to her skin. She is currently on a course of prednisone and antihistamines and gets a skin and coat supplement with her food. She also has severely abscessed teeth, and will be having an extensive dental when she finishes her course of mediation toward the end of January. Additionally, Nikki has cataracts in both eyes, but this doesn’t stop her from getting along in the world!!
Now, Nikki would like to educate you about something– for humans, sight is our primary sense. However, for dogs, their primary sense is smell (“It has been estimated that a dog’s sense of smell is 100,000 times more powerful than a human’s.”), followed by hearing (“Dogs can hear at four times the distance humans can.”), then sight. Nikki adjusted to her foster home just fine after a thorough sniffing exploration to get the lay of the land. She goes up stairs just fine, and is learning the command ‘step’ in order to help her navigate down. She is very smart and has already figured out the stairs in her current tri-level home!
Nikki is fairly vocal, grunting and growling as she writhes around or plays. Also, since she can’t see other dogs posture when they approach her, she does tend to growl at them, although she is wagging her tail. She is not aggressive. Once she meets the dog, she gets along just fine with them (she is currently one of three cockers). Even though she can’t see, she is a jumper! She will jump baby gates in the house, and it was reported to us she can climb a 4 foot fence, so she would do best in a privacy-fenced yard.
Gwen Frederick, who previously adopted a blind dog from RMCR, has this to say about owning a sight-impaired dog: “I never would have imagined it but life with Lucy, my blind dog, has been no different than having a sighted dog. When I look back on the last 2 + years with Lucy, I can’t think of one problem that has come up as a result of her not being able to see. Since a dog’s main senses are their keen hearing and smell, she’s got an advantage. She knows when people are coming before I do. She maneuvers around my house like she can see. She knows where everything is and never runs into anything. I don’t know how she does it but it’s amazing to watch. Most of the time I forget she can’t see. When we go for our daily walks, she trots down the sidewalk ahead of me totally fearless, and when we end our walk back at my front gate, she turns in ahead of me because she knows we’re home. She knows her way around the yard too. I’d take her over any other sighted dog in a minute and can’t imagine life without her! She’s the perfect dog!”
Can you find it in your heart to give a sweet, sight-impaired doggie the chance to be your perfect dog?? Help Nikki find her forever home!
Nikki is spayed, current on vaccinations and is micro-chipped. If you are interested in meeting Nikki please fill out an online adoption application. Nikki’s adoption fee is $150.

Brownie has an adoption pending!
This is Brownie! We have no idea why she was named “Brownie,” because she has the most gorgeous, pure auburn red coat we’ve ever seen! She deserves a good Irish name to go with it! Brownie is still a puppy at only about 15 months, and acts like it! She has outgrown all those tiny puppy behaviors of being destructive, but she retains the energy. She is a ball of constant motion and excitement. She entertains herself with toys and bones and wants to play every minute of the day. She knows what is hers though, and doesn’t get into things she shouldn’t. She is a growly, mouthy player, but doesn’t nip. She will stay off the furniture if not allowed up, but does like to stand on her back legs to peek at things. She knows sit, but it is the hardest thing in the world to hold still! She needs help learning to come when called, but treats should make than an easy job. She sleeps in a large crate because she is a big, tall girl! She weighs in at a svelte 29 lbs, and could possible gain a few more pounds as she gets older. She loves to eat (all that energy needs fuel!!) but takes a treat very gently from your hand. She pulls on a leash because she’s just so excited, so would benefit from a harness and training. She rides nicely in the car, just looking out the window. She is not a barker and does not jump baby gates in the house. She adores all people. She is mostly housebroken but is being let out about every four hours (so not sure yet how she’d do all day). She gets along well with other dogs, but is very responsive to the ‘group behavior’, meaning if other dogs are growling or barking, she will join in without really knowing why. She is a sweet, good girl who will give kisses and cuddle, but would do best in an active household. If you are a couch potato, Brownie is NOT the dog for you. But if you love to walk, run, play ball, roughhouse, hike, etc., then Brownie will be a wonderful addition to your family!! Brownie has been spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and heartworm tested. She has a yeast ear infection and just needs her ears cleaned twice a day for that to clear up. Otherwise, she is a healthy, happy young girl who is ready for her forever home! We do not believe this is a long term issue just needs to be cleared up.
Please note: Brownie is still a puppy who didn’t have any obedience training prior to coming to RMCR. She is very smart and is learning well, but she doesn’t yet consistently come when called, especially if she is focused on something exciting to her. She also loves to run, and if given the chance, will run away. To ensure Brownie stays safe while she continues to learn, she must have a physically fenced yard (no invisible fences). Thanks for helping us help Brownie!!
If you are interested in meeting Brownie, please fill out an online adoption application. Brownie’s adoption fee is $300.

This is Thelma and Louise (Thelma has the little poof on her head and freckles on her nose). These two girls are a very bonded pair and will be adopted to the same home. They came to us from Oklahoma as part of an 11-dog transfer that the rescue took in. We didn’t get much information on these girls so we are learning as we go along. The story that we were told was that they were found abandoned and tied to a tree. How sad is that!!!! They were taken into a home with at least 12 other dogs where they became a little shy. They seem to have spent most of their time in a crate but that doesn’t stop them from cuddling and loving now! It takes just a few minutes for them to get to know you and then they will be your best friend! They will sit on your lap and give you tons of sweet little kisses. Louise loves to rest her head on your chest just to be near to you. Thelma has this adorable head cocking thing she dogs when you call her name. They WILL melt your heart. They seem to crave human contact! Of course who wouldn’t after spending most of your time in a crate!
Because they were in a home with so many dogs they did not get proper training or socialization and will need to go through some obedience classes. They will also need work on potty training (as I said they spent most of their time in a crate and that is where their business was mostly done). There is also a chance that they can climb a 4 ft chain-link fence although their foster mom has not seen this in the two girls. They will need to be watched closely when outside. A 6ft wooden fence would be best for these girls.
It will be a great joy to watch as these two become confidant and learn how to be the playful puppies they deserve to be.
We do not know how they are with kids or cats. They are great with other dogs. They are both spayed, current on vaccinations and micro-chipped. It you are interested in meeting these sweet girls please make sure to fill out an online adoption application . Their adoption fee is $250 each ($500 total).
