About Dalmatian Rescue of Colorado

DRC, a designated 501 (c)3 nonprofit organization, is not a shelter. We are a group of volunteers who work with rescued dogs by fostering them in our own homes whenever possible; hence treating them the same as one of our own. We will use a kennel or day care if necessary to save a dog, but that dog will move to a foster home as soon as possible. All costs associated with the care of our dogs come from adoption donations and from the generosity of donors. We provide vaccinations, spaying/neutering, socialization and training of these dogs until a permanent home can be found. Our number one commitment is to the Dalmatians and Dalmatian Wannabes that come our way. We carefully screen all applicants and do home visits to assure each dog is placed in the best home for him/her and he/she is the best companion for that home.

We want to introduce Austin, almost 3 yrs, neutered, very good in the house, but afraid of dogs. In his first home, Austin lived nearly full time indoors, with many younger children. They would toss balls down the stairway for exercise. He is a tall, slender guy, weighing about 60lbs and Austin is crate trained, totally housebroken, and is super sweet and playful. He is excellent with people and children, but he probably should be with older kids due to his size and energy level. He also has a strong toy drive and is confident and agile, and would likely make an excellent sport dog (agility, flyball, dock diving, rally, etc.). He has the drive to perform and desire to please! Austin is very "people focused" and would prefer to play with people or toys rather than with other dogs. He is shy around other dogs, therefore a meet and greet would be necessary with another dog, but he would be happiest if he had you all to himself and an only dog. Austin needs a little help with leash walking, but has improved greatly over a short amount of time with his foster. Austin lives in Centennial and needs a home by late May as the family is heading to Europe. He comes with three sessions with a local dog trainer as well. Austin loves the car, cuddling and, yes, toys! Due to his needs, an experienced dog owner is a must. Unfortunately, the adopters are just not the right home for Austin. He developed a fear of other dogs due to his earlier isolation and while the family adores him, he needs a better situation. He likes water, playing fetch, licks baby faces but is also might accidentally knock a little one down. He loves running but wants you outdoors to play with him. Austin learns quickly. Currently in Centennial CO (Denver area), Austin wants to play ball with you! Come play toss and see how beautiful he is in motion. For more information, contact Matea at matea47@gmail.com. Adoption $350.
