My name is Randa. I am available for adoption through Colorado Canine Rescue (CCR), a nonprofit dog rescue located in the Denver area. I came to CCR from Texas. There is very little history on me. CCR has been told I am a Lab breed mix, but that is just a guess made by shelter staff, rescue volunteers, and our veterinarians.
Randa came from Texas with her 6 puppies when they were 3 weeks old . She was a very devoted mom. The puppies have all found their forever homes and now Randa is waiting to find her perfect home. Randa is believed to be around 2 years old. She is low heartworm positive, yet has an incredible amount of energy. She loves to play chase with the other high energy dogs in the household. Her exercise does need to be limited so as to not over exert herself. No long walks, no hiking, not a running partner until she is cleared from heartworm. Her personality is loving, happy, a bit stubborn and smart. Other wise she would have not survived being a stray for so long. She is kennel trained but would prefer not to be in the kennel. It is to keep her from playing too hard when the foster family is not around to monitor her. Randa needs some leash work, as she pulls and will run off if let out the front door. Pretty much typical Lab energy/behavior from not having any prior training. Randa will require a yard and another dog playmate. She will bark to alert you to any activity going outside of the yard, and while she plays. She may do ok with a cat that does not run from a dog. She had cats near while raising her puppies and would gently divert their attention from the puppies. (The cats are very dog friendly) Randa is house trained, having access to outdoors when ever needed. She has not been around small children, but her energy would be too much for them. She gets along with most of the dogs in the household. She did challenge the alpha male if she saw him as a threat to her puppies. The rescue does pay for the slow kill heartworm treatment until she is no longer heartworm positive. She will happily come from the back yard if you whistle or call her mama. She was spayed and micro chipped and up to date on all of her vaccines.
If you are interested in adopting Randa , please submit an adoption application located on our website, www.coloradocaninerescue.org. We are asking for a $175 adoption donation for Randa. Please note, CCR cannot guarantee the breed composition or ages of our dogs as we usually have no history prior to them entering the shelter.
