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 has gone through heartworm treatment and NOW IS HEARTWORM FREE! What does this mean? She has NO restriction on her activities. Randa can hike, run or run along side a bike with you. She has a ton of energy, and loves to be with her human companions. Randa had puppies, which were all adopted in 2016. She was a terrific mom. Randa is now about 2 and a half years old.
She loves to play chase with the other high energy dogs in the household. Her personality is loving, happy, and smart. She has some fear when she does something wrong and your raise your voice to her. She will hide and piddle. So she responses well to positive training. Randa wants to please. If asked to stop a behavior like barking or chasing, she will stop and come right too you. She is kennel trained but would prefer not to be in the kennel.(Sleeping in bed with her human, is heaven to her.) It is still best to kennel her when no one is home because she will chew on things she should not. 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 in the best situation another active dog playmate. If the family members run, hike, goes on walks daily, she might do well as an only dog. She will bark to alert you to any activity going outside of the yard, and barks in play with the other fosters. 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. Randa does love attention. When at rest you will find her next to your feet.
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.
