Bowser is Available!

It is not often that we get in English Bulldogs but Bowser was special. We were asked to take him from a local shelter and we couldn’t say no to that smile.

Bowser is a 4yo neutered male English bulldog.

Bowser has been with us for almost six months. He had been adopted and then she has had a family emergency and must go live with family out of state. And while Bowser loves his people, he can be a bit grumpy with too much commotion.


Bowser is a loving and cuddly guy through and through. He loves all humans and their attention so much. He is very much so food motivated! He loves his walks, smells, and toys! He can shred things up in a second so he likes toys that give him a challenge (and ones he can’t eat). He has some allergies that aren’t quite known but we have been working on it. He doesn’t get along with other dogs so he is best as an only child. Has not been around children that I know of so might be best to keep in a home without. He’s really laid back and only expects his morning and afternoons walks. He’s a fun happy guy who just wants your undivided attention. Please, no children under 12 and no other pets in the home.

Bowser is a big boy and he needs his daily walks. But Bowser also has a habit of snuffling up and eating anything he can grab on his walks. Please be aware of this. Bowser is a boy that will need your attention. And he will bask in that attention!

Bowser’s adoption fee will be $250. To apply for Bowser, please be sure your application is on file and then send us an email/video/pictures explaining why your home is perfect for Bowser.

Onax is looking for his Furever Home

Onax 

It has been my pleasure to foster Onax. He is the kindest and most gentle soul. He loves to be petted and loved on. Everyone that has visited him thus far has adored him. 

Onax loves to play and explore. He has a cute little bouncy jaunt that has developed from his neurological and sight impairment that charms everyone. He thrives on routine and normality as his sight is significantly impaired. If you’re into moving furniture often, this boy may have a hard time adjusting! That being said, he took just a few days to navigate the simple layout of my home and gets around quite nicely. He does bump into walls/furniture on occasion if he gets turned around but just keeps right on shuffling along.

He has continual outdoor access from morning until dusk and loves to spend his (cooler) days snoozing on the covered deck or nosing around the backyard. His gait has significantly improved with frequent casual exercise and it is my opinion that if he continued daily free time to walk and exercise that his muscle tone would continue to improve although I don’t suspect he’ll ever have the strength he once had. Our yard has a hill in it and he climbs it willingly and very well. He is able to navigate one or 2 small steps we built him from the porch. His favorite toys are ropes for the most gentle game of tug-o-war you’ll ever play and the giant Jolly pets ball. He will bring tennis balls and squeaky toys to you for play as well and has learned how to grab toys from the puppy toy box.

He is quite smart! Onax loves walks and does well on leash although in the large yard he is free to roam and loves to take his time exploring. He’s pretty much house trained although being on steroids does make him take in a lot of water which results in frequent urination (every time he steps outside). He typically urinates once in the night and does not alert the need to go out. He does get pee pads for night time and uses them. He has had 2 BM accidents in the house early on but I blame that on a new environment. He has since been accident free with the exception of nighttime urination which is reasonable due to his medication. Onax has regular BMs 2 times a day at  morning and evening. 

Onax has very few teeth and has been switched from his hard kibble to a soft senior food (currently Pro Plan Adult 7+ Turkey and Rice as approved by our veterinarian). He is doing very well on it. His bloated belly has receded some but he will continue to have puffiness due to steroid treatment, his coat is softer and I have not seen him lick his paws since the switch. A Grain free diet and rabbit is NOT recommended for him.  

Onax is easy to bathe and has had two oatmeal treatments to soothe his skin infection (for which he is on antibiotics). His absolute favorite part is being held in your lap while getting towel dried. Onax is on medication that is easily given. One is a small pill I mix into his soft food in the morning and the other is an oral suspension given twice daily that is a breeze to administer. He is also very good with having his nails trimmed. 

Onax gets along well with his bossy foster sister and is pretty passive with toy play and sharing attention. He will play tug with his foster sister Frenchie but not for long although he does like to follow her around in the yard and sleep next to her. Onax does have significant aggressive resource guarding with other dogs and is fed separately without issue. He does not show any resource guarding towards humans and does not show aggression to animals once properly socialized for daily living. 

It is my opinion that Onax would do best with someone that is home during the day to be able to take him out often. We are also a very quiet and calm household and he seems to do well in that environment. Sudden or quick movements and loud noises can startle him due to his vision loss and younger kiddos or overbearing/rough play animals may not suit him. He does bark at the neighbors’ dogs (they are 20 acres away so his hearing is quite good!) and will alert if someone knocks on the door. 

Overall, Onax is a very simple to care for pup that is a joy to be around. He is just so kind and so cute. I expect anyone that brings him home will fall in love as quickly as I have. 

Onax will be best placed in a quiet home without young children or young playful dogs. His vision is approximately 40% and he will need a home that understands his needs. Onax’s donation fee will be $300. To apply for Onax, please be sure your application is on file and then send us a detailed email (or video) explaining why your home is best for Onax.

Nellie and Lola have found their Furever Home!

Nellie and Lola are looking for their Furever Home!

Nellie (brindle SF 9yo) and Lola (cream SF 8yo) are looking for their furever home! 

Nellie

Definitely the big sister role. She has to have first pets, first water, first food and first one to wake up in the house. Nellie is a HUGE show off. Any human she meets she has to show how much energy she has for a 9 year old Frenchie. Within 5 minutes of entering my house she found one of my Rugby balls and now that is her favorite toy. As hard as she plays keep-a-way and fetch, she crashes just as hard as soon as she is done playing. Nellie is the Protector of the house. Any noises outside or new people she hasn’t met before enter the house, she grumbles and growls. This quickly is turned off once she realizes everything is OK. As an older dog, Nellie does need to go out more frequently but she is just fine with not having to do long walks.

Lola

Really sweet dog and her ONLY issue is she has leash aggression. If you are on a long walk you’ll have to be mindful and dodge other dogs as she gets anxious and barks aggressively. You can calm her down by crouching down and petting her through it. Besides that, a TOTAL heartbreaker! She melts the hearts of any more she meets, big cuddle bug, loves her naps and will sleep as long as you want. Lola loves a good wrestle. Lola loves going out and on walks; mention “Walk” to her and watch her flip out. Personality? Give Nellie any sort of attention more than Lola and watch her fake pout and even fake snore to make you feel bad.

Together

When Nellie plays, Lola playfully attacks her; nipping at Nellie’s ears and back legs. Nellie does not seem to mind at all. Nellie likes to play with her toys and Lola likes to wrestle. If you sleep with them in your bed, Lola will end up near your chest and Nellie is under the covers and at your legs; good luck moving!!! 

Both dogs have been fully vetted (including bloodwork) and are both healthy and happy. 

Nellie and Lola are a bonded pair and will be adopted together – no exception. Their donation fee is $500. To adopt, please FOLLOW THIS LINK

RoxyAnn is looking for her Furever Home!

The cuddliest and sweetest girl! Her squishy face will melt your heart! She’s tiny but has plenty of personality! She loves her new wheelchair as she can finally stretch her back and cruise at full speed. She also LOVES to go for walks in her stroller and check out the neighborhood. She does not like cats per say, but has been living with one and has learned to leave it alone since being in foster thanks to some training. Good with kids and dogs!

She wears adorable cloth diapers that keep her diaper rash at bay, but does have weekly bandage changes on her legs for the time being to fight off a nasty infection. We are rocking a cone right now as well for infections on her front feet. She doesn’t complain about any of these circumstances, she just wants to lay out in the sun or on your lap and enjoy life! As her foster we have gotten into such a routine with her care it’s almost nothing to us now, she’s so easy for a paralyzed girl!

She loves to sleep in her crate at night, takes her meds in her special food (Honest Kitchen mixed with kibble) without needing to pill her, and holds still when it’s time to change diapers and toe wraps. She is one of the best dogs out there, anyone who adopts this one is in for a treat.

RoxyAnn is susceptible to sores on her legs. She is healing now and will have scars. Her adoptive home should be prepared to recognize the start of the sores and be able to clean them so they do not get infected. She will come with all her items – diapers and covers, stroller, cart, Flufftrough, crate, bed – this girl has enough to furnish a one bedroom condo!

This girl has come a long way. As the sweetest little thing who has battled so much, she deserves a Happily Ever After. Is that you? To apply for RoxyAnn, please be sure you have an application on file. Then send an email to rockymountainfbr@gmail.com explaining why you are the best fit for RoxyAnn. You may write it out or send a video. Her donation fee will be $250.

ADOPTED! Ruby is looking for her Furever Home! More Info HERE

Isabella

Sweet Isabella passed on February 28, 2020

She may look like a tough old girl, but Bella (Isabella), who is 11 years old, is actually a champion snuggler. She is spayed, healthy, and up to date on all her medical needs and vaccines. She has no medical issues.


Her favorite things are to nap all day, take short walks, and enjoy the summer sun. She really is gentle and sweet around everyone. Well, except other dogs and cats out on a walk or in the home. She’s not so good with other furry friends. She is that rare sort of pooch whom a child can climb all over and hug, but when it comes to her toys it best that kids don’t tease. She really loves a good round of fetch.

She seeks attention with gentle nudging of hands and wants nothing more but to give you her undivided attention. She is house trained, and can be left uncrated as she just naps while you are gone. She prefers company when going out in the cold or rain to do her business(you can get matching rain jackets). She would do best with a home that has no stairs and can only go to a home with no other dogs or older (8+), respectful children. She is smart and youthful with puppy dog eyes you would die for. She fits many of the attributes of what is looked for in a therapy dog with the minor exception of being able to ignore other dogs.


Bella is in Salt Lake City but we can transport her. Her adoption donation will be $250. Please be sure your application is on file and then send us an email stating why your home is perfect for Bella.
