Harley is a sweet. 7 year old, purebred, yellow lab. Harley is housebroken and great loose in the house. When Harley was younger she suffered ruptured cruciate ligaments in both rear legs which were not treated/repaired. As a result she has severe degenerative arthritis in both legs . She has to take medication to help with the pain. When first coming to her foster home Harley had trouble walking at all and could not get comfortable when laying down. After her injuries Harley had gained alot of weight causing the problem to be worse. After being in her foster home she has lost the weight she needed and is able to go on walks now. She is on a strict perscription diet through the veterinarian that she will have to stay on. Harley gets along well with dogs, cats and children. Harley will only be able to go to a home where her medical, physical and diet needs can and will be taken care of.
Bella14 was an owner turn in to the West shelter. She is a super sweet girl, very behaved. 7 years old but full of playful energy. She was treated for heart worm so needs to be kept as calm as possible for a while, even though she would love to chase a ball. She is a small girl, 75 lbs, and has a tail that curls up. She knows the commands sit and lay down and seems to respond to her name. She did good in the car ride and liked to stick her head out the window. Good with other dogs and kids. Likes to lick and needs a little leash training would be her only negatives right now. Did jump up when she was excited once but listened when told "down". Has not attempted to jump up on the furniture. Likes to chew on a rope chew toy. House broken and uses doggie door.
Kiefer is a very charming little man. He is sweet and gentle and just wants a best friend. He truly comes to life when you play fetch with him, he could play for hours. He gets along great with other dogs but he doesn't like to share his tennis balls and toys, so he would be best as an only dog. He is house broken, trustworthy in the house, knows how to use a dog door & stairs, is great with kids, doesn't jump on people, furniture or counters, is kennel trained and rides great in the car. He really is the total package. Please call if you think you could be his new best friend!
Hi! My name is Bear13. I have a lot of skip in my step for an 8 year old chocolate girl. Do not be fooled by my burly name! I may be furry and brown, but I am an elegant lady with excellent manners and show no signs of old age other than my gray hairs. I was an owner turn in from a family with children who were no longer able to keep me. I am great with my foster brother and sister (both human) and just love being around people. I am not fond of other dogs (when I am with them indoors) and would prefer to be the only dog in your home. Don't worry, the love I have to give is more than enough to go around! I do love a good, long walk in the morning, and I am great on a leash. I like to carry my cloth bone around the house, especially when I get excited. I have no interest in swimming in my foster family's pool, but I love to play fetch in the yard or even in the house with a soft toy. I have counter surfed (bye bye gingerbread house) when my foster parents were not home, so please don't tempt me with food on the counter in your absence. During the day I like to lay in the room with you, and appreciate snuggles at regular intervals. I will remind you it's time by putting my head in your lap if too much time has passed, so I'll keep you on your toes! Please call my foster mom if you would like to meet me. She says it will be difficult to let me go :)
My name is Skeeter and my owner recently passed away. Desert Lab was gracious enough to take me in and find me a new family. Despite my broken heart I am adjusting well to my foster mom, her dog and my surroundings. We pal around together,go on long walks and I think they really like me. The vet told me that I need to lose a pound or two (ok maybe 5 pounds) but he was impressed with how beautiful my coat was and how sweet I am. I am awesome around kids and other dogs but I am not a big fan of cats. I am great in the house, don't get into anything I am not supposed to, housebroken and can be trusted completely. I am very loyal and would love to make your home complete. Update: After 30 days of being in my foster mom's home, I've lost some healthy weight and can run a lot better. Now I just have to tone my flabby parts. More walks please!! Call my foster mom and meet me today.
Charlie15 is an active Yellow male age 3. He is an owner turn in because the owner was allergic. He has been left outside for the past year. He had learned the doggy door and is housebroken. He enjoys other dogs as long as they are not taking his toy or food away, but he loves tug of war. Retrieving ball is his favorite thing and I think he might like a swimming pool because he loves the sprinkler. He rides well in the car, likes walks but needs some leash training. He will counter surf if there is something in the way of food there. He would be good with older children. If you would like to meet him please call DLRR!
Beauty2 is a 14 month old doll. She is house broken, uses a doggy door and crate trained. Good with dogs and needs to be adopted to a family that has a dog or more. She feels safer around other dogs Beauty is scared at first but boy does she warm up. She's a mellow girl who will follow you around all day or if she's not next to you she will be in her favorite spot your bed or her doggy bed. Beauty will need a family that has a calm environment and will take time with her teaching and showing her life is good. The lucky family that adopts her will have a very loving addition to their family. Please call if you have this type of home for her.
I am Byrdie all cuddled by an open fire, no dogs or frost nipping at my nose.
Off-key carols being sung by no choir, but by fosters dressed all in winter clothes.
Everybody knows good kibble and some mistletoe, help to make the season bright.
My one good eye and my hopes all aglow, will not hinder my sound sleeping all the night.
I know a true family is on their way, They’re loaded with treats and goodies for me every day,
And every mother’s child, a fat dog will spy, but diet control will make a beauty by and by.
And so I’m offering this simple phrase, to all from one to ninety-two.
A great gift I shall be and many times you will say, the merriest Christmas gift, Byrdie, was you!
If you would like a loving, sweet and loyal girl you've come to the right place. My name is Gracie and I am 4 years old . I was turned in by my owner that had to move out of town for medical reasons and she was not able to take care of me any longer. Now I am with DLRR and they promised me that I would find my forever new home. I know all my basic commands and really thrive on pleasing. I am currently living with 4 canine Labs that range from 3 to 12 years old age and I like them all. It would even be great if I was the only dog too. I don't know about cats though. I am super easy on a leash and would love, love, love to go on daily walks. I am also crate trained but my foster mom has a doggie door so we are going to see how well I master that. Probably my favorite thing is to be close to my people and would enjoy walking, hiking, hanging out and being included in any of their activities. My wish would be to spend the rest of my life with a family that will love and care for me. I'll be sure to give you that back and more. If you are interested in meeting me, please give my foster mom a call.

She is looking for home with children and a dog to play with. If you would like to meet her please call.
Dogs Awaiting a Foster Home...
Clark3 has not been in a foster home yet, but this is what we know about him. Clark3 is a very handsome black male age 1.5 that weighs 74#. He was found as a stray and lived there for over a month. No one came for him, so they contact us to take him. They showed me his love of retrieving balls. They also wanted me to be aware that he can jump/climb a 6’ chain link fence. I do not think he could do the same with a block fence, because he has to use the top two feet to climb on. He has a lot of energy and will need a very active home. He take treat very gently, loves belly rubs and being with people. We think he is good with other dogs, but would need to be around older children because of his activity level. If you think he is right for your family, please call.
