Rain sitting

I am so overjoyed with adopting little girl Rain, feeling so Blessed.

Rain is so happy to have two ‘brothers’ who just adore her! From wrestling to playing ball to playing in the pool, there is always dogs in motion! She loves going for car rides, hiking in the park, and we are halfway through our Beginner’s dog training class.

Thank you so much for bringing so many smiles and joy to us all!

I’ve Been Adopted

Boomer headshot

Boomer came to CBCR via his owner, whose life changed radically, and who was no longer able to care for Boomer. He had been purchased as a puppy from working sheep dog lines. He has a noble ancestry, reaching back to Scotland and Wales. His great grandmother won numerous ribbons in sheep trials.

Boomer, however, is better suited to retrieve Frisbees, balls and sticks in your back yard. He was recently described by a dog sitter as having “the best Frisbee manners” she’d ever seen. He puts the fetched object nicely into your hand, then flattens out in stalking posture, ready for the next throw.

When Boomer is not retrieving, he lies regally on the floor, watching your every move. If you head for the front door, he’ll be instantly beside you, hoping for a car ride. He loads readily into a car and rides quietly in the back seat.

Boomer is house trained and will sit for a treat.

Phoenix headshot

Phoenix was found on the side of the road by a good samaritan. She wasn’t able to use her left rear leg because it was very badly broken and she wasn’t able to go to the bathroom due to the extent of the swelling from the injury. Her leg was beyond repair, so she had surgery to amputate it, and she was started on medication to decrease the swelling. She did very well through surgery and through her long road to recovery, and now she is ready to find her future family!

Phoenix has adapted very well to life with three legs. She runs and plays with the other dogs in her foster home, and she loves to wiggle her way into her foster mom’s lap when she’s sitting on the couch. Phoenix is a BIG fan of snuggles and isn’t shy about asking for them!

She is wary of new situations and tends to be somewhat timid. She prefers people over dogs, but gets along well with the other dogs in her foster home.
