Porkchop is Available!

Porkchop is a sweet 5 year old boy. He’s as beautiful as his personality. He is a paraplegic. On August 6th, 2013, he ruptured his L1 vertebrae due to IVDD. He has been in a cart since. However, this sweet boy has no problem getting around. He loves to keep up with the rest of them. He unfortunately has no bladder or bowel control. You can use diapers or pads to help with this. As a result he is prone to UTIs and is currently on antibiotics recovering from one. He will need his bladder expressed every 4-6 hrs. He howls when he makes a mess to let you know he needs his area cleaned. He is very happy and loves to be around people. He enjoys going outside to get fresh air and to play. He seems to be putting on weight and is getting stronger. He is the sweetest little boy. He has a great temperament and is great with kids and dogs. He’s a love bug.

Porkchop’s donation will be $250. If you are the perfect home for Porkchop, be sure you have an application in with us and then send a detailed email explaining how your home is Porkchop’s forever home to rockymountainfbr@gmail.com

Rue has found her forever home!

IRue (5 1/2yo SF)  is a very sweet girl with lots of energy and love to give. She really enjoys going for walks about 3-4 times a day. We are working on her manners, she is strong and she pulls and barks when cars go by. She does not like cars at all (she hates windshield wipers)  she does not do well riding in the car and she wants to chase cars that drive by when walking. Rue does not need to be crated, she is housebroken and I have had no problems with leaving her free to roam during the days. She likes to sleep in the bed at night, but doesn’t hog it or snore which is nice!

rue2She does not like to share her things or her space too much. I have introduced her to  other dogs both inside and out. She seems to do better outside, but can still be somewhat aggressive if she is approached too quickly by another dog. She would do best as an only pet. She has not met any cats, but she likes to chase squirrels and bunnies so I don’t know how well she’d do with cats. She has met a few kids on our walks and has been gentle with them. My favorite thing about Rue is her giant smile and her sweet personality. She is always very happy to see me when I get home. She always wants to be pet and loved, yet she does have a bit of an independent side too.

rue3She is very vocal and has no problem telling you when she wants something. It seems as though she has some anxiety about loud noises and traffic so I think she’d do best in a quiet home with a backyard. She also gets anxiety about being left home. I usually give her a few treats before I leave and that seems to help. Rue is a very energetic lady and she will no doubt make someone a wonderful companion! She is completely healthy, has been vetted, and is up to date on her vaccines.

Rue’s adoption fee will be $500. Please be sure to have an application on file and then send an email to rockymountainfbr@gmail.com telling us why you are the perfect forever home for Rue.

Taz is available!

taz1Taz is an amazing little guy.
He is a little tank and does all the good things a Frenchie would: snorts, fart propels, blow hole sneezes, walks funny, runs like a rabbit or a tank (in that case the latter), asks for more attention, cuddles on the sofa, sleeps and pretty much cares less to listen to commands and would rather just own you with all the cuteness in the world.
Taz is perfect. He is sweet and strong. He does not really want to walk much (maybe because it is too cold now) and certainly does not want to hike or go to the park. Taz wants his own backyard and his own human person. He will not share, little selfish ain’t it?
Well who cares, Taz has not been given the best cards and is about 7-9 years old now. So what Taz needs is a human that loves and understands the breed, no young kids preferably and no other animals at all.

I took Taz to training with Ready Sit Go and it was not a success. The conclusion is that it stresses him out and it is best to find him a safe place where he is the only dog and can receive all the attention. He is still on alert and I understand. He was used and abused, bred, and dumped.
I wanted to keep Taz but he won’t warm up to my girl Bambi. On their first meeting, he bit her back paw and would hardly let go. Bambi was not hurt but since then, even with trying gently to acquaint them, he still wants a piece of her.
Why force him if we can find a better home?
I am now determined to find an amazing companion for this amazing soul.
Taz has had a complete dental. This was done in two parts because he had to have so many teeth removed. He is fully vetted, healthy, and up to date on his vaccines.
taz2
– Taz enjoys bath time. He stays still and let’s you lather him and massage him.
– Taz is learning to sit and stay before meals not to train him but rather teach him a little patience. Of course it never lasts but it proves his gentleness and willingness to listen.
Let’s not forget he is a bully and that will always be on his terms anyway. And that is why we love them.
– Taz burps after dinner
– Taz farts while he runs and it sounds like he is going to take off (quote cute of you ask me)
– Taz loves to get his eye tears and stain wiped with love
– Taz will follow you around in case you drop food unless he thinks there is something going on and starts searching what’s up
– Taz is not picky with food but make no mistake he does prefer real chicken
– Taz is easy going
– Taz is sweet and loving
-Taz’s donation fee will be $250

Taz needs a foster!

tazhelp

Taz must be an only dog. He is so incredible with people. He spends hours just curled up next to me. He is not aggressive, but rather hyper-vigilant around other animals. It does not matter the size of the dog. Taz has had no stability in his life and his poor self-esteem comes out as defensive offense.

You can follow more on Taz and donate to his care here: Taz

If you are available to foster and have no other pets or children under 12, please fill out the  application.

Sweet and spunky Taz still needs a foster!
Taz is not good with other dogs.
Ideal home will be with a human he can trust. He is amazing with people.
Taz was a stray who has been in an outside shelter in KS for months. He is safe in a temporary home at RMFBR but desperately needs a foster home. 
He is almost deaf and is missing an eye. His teeth are broken and rotted so they are being removed in stages.
He deserves the best life.
Can you help?

The local small town Kansas shelter had previously been involved with Taz and Bridgette when they had been locked in a bathroom and starved.

A few months ago, the shelter found them wandering the streets in severe neglect. The shelter tried to press charges against the owner this time and Taz and Bridgette were stuck in the outside kennels while the law sorted it out. They decided to drop the charges and told the shelter “just euthanize those old dogs”.
So we stepped in. Now we need you.
Taz’s teeth are rotting and broken. We caught this just in time as an abscess was building under his gums. Almost half his teeth were removed yesterday and more dental surgeries are scheduled. He is also missing an eye from being attacked by a dog and is mostly deaf.
Bridgette will be getting her dental on Tuesday. She also has a large open mass/wound to be removed Tuesday. She has had an open wound for who knows how long.
These two have spent their 8 or 9 years fighting for their lives. We are trying to give them peace in their twilight years. They are both incredibly sweet and amazing dogs. They deserve love and comfort. Can you help us get them healthy?

Opal has found her forever home!

IMG_2493

Opal came to me from her before home, where she had “small person” syndrome. Meaning she would pick on dogs bigger than her! She has a lot of bark, but no bite. Which makes her a great protector and a fun addition to the family. She is the sweetest and most relaxed french bulldog that I had the pleasure of fostering. She took a week to get adjusted to me, but after that, she welcomes you home with a big smile, and greeting at the door. Opal loves to chase bunnies, and birds around the neighborhood when we go out on walks, so make sure she’s on a leash, before she goes out! She’s not found of big dogs, and has issues seeing or being around them. Opal is a great dog that will cuddle up to you on the couch, and play catch for short periods of time, she likes her walks at night and in the morning, where its cool and peaceful. Opal needs a one dog home, where she can be the center of attention, and the Queen of her domain!

From her foster status: Sweet little Opal is settling into her foster home! She’s a little shy but foster mom has all the patience in the world. Opal’s surrendering owner had rescued her from craigslist and loved her dearly. Unfortunately, Opal has that little ‘tude with other dogs some Frenchies have and kept attacking the resident mastiff. Her owner tried everything and finally made the heartbreaking decision to call us.
Opal will get all the time she needs. Once she is ready for adoption, she will be posted. She is healthy at 6 1/2yo. The shaved spots on her are from her fights with the bigger dog. They are all healed well and her hair is starting to grow back. Welcome, Opal! We will be sure you are the only queen in the house.

Tink has found a home!

Tink 6.JPG

Hello, very nice to meet you, my new name is Tink, my foster dad named me that because when I walk around the house my little feet go “tink, tink, tink.” Who doesn’t love the sound of little paws? They also call me Tinker Bell sometime, because I am just that cute.Let me tell you a little bit about me. I was living with a family that had way too many dogs, so the people at RMFBR stepped in and took me to my new foster family. Here, I have settled in nicely and have learned what it is like to be a loving family pet.  I enjoy the company of other dogs and have daily wrestle sessions with my foster sisters. I am 100% potty trained and know how to go sit by the backdoor to let you know when it is time to go out, or I will even let myself out through a dog door. I know that being in my crate while the humans away is a safe and comfortable place to be and often will just go in there and lay down for a nap on my own. I am very proud to report I know how to walk nicely on a leash and know the commands of sit, off, go lay down, no, up, come, and stay. My humans are still working with me on more tricks, they say I am very smart! I love going to the dog park and get along with all other dogs and people I meet, big or small.
My favorite things to do in my foster home is snuggle on the couch with my humans. They let me crawl up on their laps and lay my head on their chest for nap-time, that is the best. I have learned to love the snow and like romping through it, even when it is taller than me!
The Dr. told me I have some allergies, but thanks to RMFBR they are now all under control. I will need a bath every week or two, but it is easy to do in the kitchen sink and I quite enjoy them, very relaxing. I also get an allergy shot once ever two weeks. The shots don’t bother me at all and I sit nicely for them.  I also am sensitive to food so will need a family that will feed me the kinds that work well for my skin, the great news is that the food can be purchased at pets mart so it is convenient. I also love veggies! Carrots, green beans, cucumbers, just call me a doggie composter.

Ok, well that is a awfully lot about me, I mean we haven’t even met yet! So fill out an application and lets get to know each other!

Finn has found a home!

Finn’s waddle12347883_10205705838305482_6535118576877847216_n

Finn, a neutered male 6yo, is a very affectionate dog, and loves to be close to people. He will nuzzle up as close as he can to you on the couch. He is always happy to see you when you get home, and is very loyal. He is playful and likes to chew on bones and other toys, although he can get a little possessive if another dog gets near him while he’s chewing on his bone. He currently lives in a foster home with a male black lab and a female pug, and he get’s along with both well. It took him some time to adjust to the lab, as Finn seems to be a little confrontational with bigger dogs, but he adores the pug. The perfect home for Finn would be a place where he can be the only dog, or have another smaller dog as a companion.
