About Dazee

This is Dazee. LOVES LOVES LOVES toys. In fact, her love of toys saved her life! Dazee was found as a stray and brought to the city shelter. Due to overcrowding and her shyness, she was put on the euth list. A shelter volunteer who had pushed hard to save her, stopped by at the end of the day to say good-bye. No rescue had tagged her and her time was up. The volunteer was greeted by Dazee with a wiggly butt and holding a tennis ball in her mouth. She wanted to play! The volunteer was stopped in her tracks: there was no way we could lose this girl now. She took Dazee home to foster and contacted Red Collar, hoping we would take in her. And we did. Unfortunately, Dazee then hit a rough patch. We found out she was pregnant about the same time she came down with pneumonia. Our vet determined that she was septic and she lost her babies. We almost lost her. Dazee has now bounced back to health and is gaining some much needed weight. She's ready for a happy new life in her forever home. Dazee is a sweet and gentle pup with a wiggly butt. Often sighted with a toy in her mouth. She likes dogs of all sizes and is kid friendly too. She enjoys playtime, but has a calm nature. She's housetrained and crate trained. Want to meet this special girl? Contact info@redcollar.org.

*Calvin is currently being fostered in HOUSTON, TX. He is available for local or out-of-state adoption to the perfect family! Transport to out-of-state adopter will be coordinated by Red Collar Rescue and is included in the adoption fee. Calvin was adopted from RCR in 2012 as a young Lab. He was recently found injured and alone, wandering in a park, and was picked up by animal control. He did not have on a collar and tag, but thankfully RCR was contacted through his microchip. We tried to reach his adopter, but to no avail. We immediately took Calvin to the vet. He had torn ACLs on both of his back legs, making it difficult for him to walk. Calvin has had orthopedic surgeries to repair both of his rear legs, and he is currently going through physical therapy to help him walk again without pain. Although he has been making steady progress, he is expected to always have some limitations in his mobility. Specifically, his hind legs are bowed out when he walks; he can only tolerate walks up to 1/2 mile at a time. Despite that, Calvin still has plenty of life in him. His hearing, eye sight and sense of smell are as sharp as any young dogs. Everything (except his legs) works perfectly in him! Calvin is a big loving lug of a dog. He's perfectly house trained and he does well in a kennel. He doesn't touch anything that's not his. He is quiet most of the time, but he will alert you if he hears something outside the house. A perfect alarm system! Though he is a senior dog, he still loves to play some. He loves his tennis ball and will make a pirate growl when he wants you to play fetch with him. His exercise need is low. But he loves his daily walks and is always ready to go with you. Please contact info@redcollar.org for more information on adopting this sweet and handsome gentleman! show less

Hi there! My name is Lonnie. I am an unbelievably happy girl. My whole body wiggles with a zest for life. I have adorable marking with circles around each eye, looking like I have on goggles. I just know we are going to be best friends. I lived on the street for a while before being picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. Sadly, there were so many of us homeless pets, that the shelter was full with nowhere to keep me. I was minutes away from losing my life when a volunteer from Red Collar Rescue rushed to the shelter and pulled me to safely…whew…that was close. Now I’m looking for a home and family. I love to run and play. Playtime isn’t sometime I just dabble in; I play at the professional level – all in. The most important thing your need to know about me, however – I LOVE TOYS. "Toy Fanatic" may be the right term. If allowed I would carry a toy in my mouth everywhere, even on walks. People and other dogs might give me strange looks, but I’ve gotta keep my toy friends close. I’m energetic and athletic (would make a great running companion), but I have my softer side too. I like to give and get hugs and kisses. Snuggles and naps are the best after playtime activity. And of course I like treats. Please e-mail info@redcollar.org to learn more about making me part of your family. XOXO! Lonnie show less

Hi Guys, My name is Phoenix. Just like the Greek Mythology bird that is known to be born again....I too am born again! I have definitely had my share of trials and tribulations! I had a family that did not take care of me, and I ended up as a stray. As I was trying to survive on the street, a growth appeared on my foot, that kept getting bigger and bigger. It was like walking with a ball & chain. I was picked up by animal control and taken to the shelter. It was nice to have food, but I quickly realized my days were numbered. The shelter staff felt sorry for me, and reached out to some groups to see if anyone could help me. I was so lucky that Red Collar came to my rescue. I had surgery to remove the tumor from my foot...it weighed 5 lbs! I could finally walk again. And the even better news...the growth was not malignant! But it was also determined that I had an old fracture in my femur that healed badly, so RCR took me to Texas A&M to see the best orthopedic surgeon who operated and made my leg good as new! I have now had 2 surgeries and am all healed up and ready for my forever home! I am about 2 years old and 40 lbs. I am a very sweet guy who loves to snuggle, and go on walks, hang out, watch TV and more. I get along well with my K9 buddies too! I just know we would get along great! Please email info@redcollar.org to learn more about adopting me. See you soon! show less

Hi Guys, Smuggler here! I am named after the breath taking beautiful Smuggler Mountain in Colorado, because my coat is white as snow! I somehow ended up homeless and on the street searching for food. Some people were not very nice to me, so it took a while for me to trust anyone enough to be rescued. But here I am now, living the good life and getting lots of TLC! I have had the works...vaccines, neuter, micro-chip, etc...and am a perfectly healthy pup! I LOVE other dogs and need to be in a home with a k9 sibling to make me feel more comfortable. I am timid with new people, and need someone that will be patient with me while I learn to trust again. It takes more than one meet and greet for me to warm up to new people. Fast moves and loud noises scare me, so I prefer to be in a home with adults, as young children are a bit too much for me. I also would do best living in a house with a yard to play in. An apartment building is too busy and all the people and activity scare me. I am crate trained and house-trained and also learning my basic commands. I still get nervous on walks, but am doing better. I am a very gentle and sweet boy and hope to have my forever home soon.
