Currently Available Dogs


This is actually a terrible picture of Charlie who was hanging over the fence for the arrival of Peabody and Sherman. He actually is a drop dea gorgeous male. he is a one year old, untrained, wildly energetic teenager, LOL. Someone got him as a puppy when he was darling and then forgot to train him. And he is smart, willing and excited to learn. We have started clicker training and he is loving it.

If you are active and have experience in training and are willing to work with him, he will be a great dog for you. If you live in a small place and have small children, don’t even ask me



Sherman came in with Peabody and is about 6 months old. He is active and friendly. And he likes to climb so if your fence is wire, he will be over it in a mintute, LOL. He is neutered and chipped and has had his first shots. Will finish that up shortly.

Peabody is about 2 and is a little Golden mix who came up from Carlsbad. He was abandoned. We are thinking that young guys come out to the oil fields with their dogs, then move on and just leave the dogs. He is friendly and likes people. He is energetic and would love to go running. He will need some training. I think he was just put out in the yard with Sherman.

He is neutered and chipped and will have the rest of his shots shortly. He is a nice dog with a lot of potential.

Mikey is the smaller of the twins. He is 15 months and a little more shy. He is VERY affectionate and sweet.

He is chipped, neutered, has shots and set to go.

Joey is about 15 months. he is loving, energetic and gorgeous. A little on the skinny side and his coat needs upgrading, but he is confident and kind. I think both he and his brother has some Pyranees in them – this makes them incredible loyal and laid back. When they see me, their eyes soften and they wag and wag.

They are both neutered, have chips and shots and such. They still have their cone of shame on LOL.

It may appear as if we have no dogs, but this is not the case. I have 9 dogs at my place now, LOL. I am getting them to the vet, getting them shots, microchips, and assessments. Pictures to follow

I have five young males…an assortment of energy and maleness :)
1 female who is 8

The other 3 include my two and Mr. Logan who seems to have adopted Pepper and Ronan.

Details coming.

Remember to EMAIL rather than call please. I also work from home with my other job and phone calls are hard.



Mister is a 2 year old something with an amazing personality. The Hobbs shelter called me and said *we have a Golden Retriever, can you take him?* I said, *send me a picture, please.* Then they emailed again and said, *Ok, we are ready to send him.* I said, *picture, please*. So finally they did, LOL.

I thought, *that is NOT a Golden Retriever by ANY stretch of the imagination* but I happen to have space and he is really cute. They said he has a darling personality, likes dogs, likes people. He is neutered, has had his shots and is chipped.

So you know what I said, * All right, all right, send him over.* I am still laughing. He looks like a Meercat. I could cheat and say he was a Golden Cross, but I don’t know it would be with. His personality is a Golden.

So if anyone would like a loving, affectionate goofy looking dog that has been screened by your local Golden Retriever Rescue, Mister is your boy.

As you all know, GRR is a totally volunteer non profit. We do not get grants nor do we have fundraising events. We reply totally on your generosity.

I just calculated our typical per dog cost at about $300. This includes an exam, a heart worm and tick disease screen, a chip, a rabies and distemper/parvo shot and a spay/neuter. We buy food for the dogs, we pay for the repair of the kennels when the anxious dog rips it all down, we put clean chips in the kennels and we get throw away dogs new collars and tags. . It is not fancy, but you KNOW the dogs feel safe and loved.

Right now we have 7 dogs. In the last month, we had about $1000 in vet bills before the new guys came in so we are scraping the barrel.

People generally give us $200-$400 dollars and sometimes less. When the *sometimes less* happens to coincide with a flood of *extra* expense, we need your help. Recently I had a couple of people promise donations and then not follow through

I think many of you know that we are a very tiny group of dedicated volunteers. We have placed more than 700 Goldens over the years. But we don’t have a fund raising department. Colorado just did a fund raising dinner and raised $80,000 in a night. They have 150 volunteers …We have you. And I think most of you know that we are very, very good at placing dogs and have put most of our energy there.

100% of the money you give goes to support dog costs. It is all tax deductible.

We put a paypal button on the home page there. If you can give us anything, we sure will appreciate it.

or if you like, you can make a donation at Long Leash on Life and we will use it for dog food. We give the dogs great food because most of them come in so compromised.

thank you for everything!

I have heard from a number of you about volunteering to help out and I apologize for my delay in getting back to you. Here is what we are needing:

1) We need people who are willing to come and work with an individual dog. We want to clicker train the dogs to sit, walk on a leash and not leap around, LOL. What your job would be is to learn something about clicker training…I recommend getting Peggy Tillman’s book called Clicking With your Dog. Long Leash on LIfe has it. While you are there, look at the stuff. Maybe even get a DVD. Go online and watch youtube so you can get the idea. I will help too.

My thinking is that if you learn this, you can come and work with one dog – your buddy. This is what will make the dogs most adoptable.

2) We also need people to take specific dogs walking or running. And…part of the dilemma is that the dogs who need it most are the dogs who don’t know how. Sometimes people come thinking that these are dogs that just need a walk. Sometimes that is true LOL, and sometimes they need to learn how. And the dogs are muddy and hairy so wear jeans.

3) Some of the dogs would love to go on an outing, maybe for a trip to Flying Star or a walk on the ditch. You can see if there is a dog that you think would suit your chemistry, email me and let’s chat.
