Lab Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Shadow has been waiting and waiting for her forever peoples to find her! She is certain that they are out there and that if they would just meet her she would capture their hearts! Shadow is a loving girl who does well with young children and other dogs. She is just a puppy and will need someone who is committed to teaching her the ways of the world. Shadow is food driven and very smart so she'll catch onto things quickly. She is an active girl who will make a great hiking buddy! Shadow is being fostered with her sister, Dakota & they love to play all day and cuddle all night. Shadow is originally from Texas. She and her siblings were ...

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-27-00259Sneezy (female)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Sneezy was rescued in May this year, together with mom and 6 siblings (all named after the dwarfs) by Elephant Nature Park in Thailand. When ENP found them they were living in a pipe next to a supermarket, the mom had lost her home and stayed around the market to find enough food. The pups were born around March this year. Sneezy and her family got very lucky, there aren't many happy endings for Thailand street dogs. At just 7 months old Sneezy is ready to become a U.S. citizen. She currently lives at the sanctuary with hundreds of dogs where there are (maybe) 4 adoptions per month. Sneezy hopes that someday she will be noticed and land a ... (Read More)family of her own. Ever since she caught word of being a Sunshine Dog she can't stop daydreaming of the Rocky Mountains. She wanted us to let anyone considering her know that she promises daily puppy kisses and to become the worlds best hiker. Sneezy is not one to take life for granted. She makes the most of what shes got because she knows it could be way worse. Sneezy will be boarding a Colorado bound plane on 9/30 and would be over the moon to meet her forever people at the airport! She is up to date on vaccinations and spayed. We are not sure of her breed. We think some kind of retriever/shepherd mix but most of the dogs at this sanctuary weigh in at about 30lbs. If you're interested in adopting this sweetheart please email us at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com. Thanks! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-27-00247Cafe (female)

Jack Russell Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Cafe is one of many lucky pups rescued by Elephant Nature Park in Thailand. CafŐ© is a very beautiful, small girl, who can be skittish at first, but once she trusts (which usually doesn't take too long), she is all over you and playful. She is good with dogs, but tends to get bullied at the sanctuary. She doesn't usually get hurt, but she is mostly spending her time in a pipe right now, fearful of them attacking her. While the scariest parts of her life are over (mass poisonings) we think that Cafe deserves a carefree future. Cafe weighs in at about 22lbs and we are totally stumped on her breed. She will be flying to Denver on 9/30 with a ... (Read More)few other Thai pups and we would love for her to go directly into an adoptive home. She is up to date on vaccinations & is spayed. If you're interested in opening your home to little Cafe please email us at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com. Thanks! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-25-00022Thomas (male)

Norfolk Terrier Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Thomas is a 14-16lb terrier mix. He is about 4 years old and has the most beautiful green eyes! Thomas lived in home with his live-in girlfriend. Thomas's girlfriend ended up having a litter of puppies because their guardians were not responsible or careful. Once the puppies were born they realized that they did not want to pay to get Thomas neutered, and did not want to pay for puppy care so they dropped Thomas and the puppies at a shelter. Thomas was SUCH a wonderful dad. He let the pups play all over him and took complete care of them since they knew they had been ripped from their mom and he was all they had left. even with his ... (Read More)broken and the horror of the shelter he did what he needed to do. Thomas's little pups finally became old enough to get adopted into their own loving homes, now it's Thomas's turn. Thomas is a very, very special dog. Thomas loves to snuggle and play with toys. He is completely potty trained and great on a leash. Thomas has had more training than 99% of the dogs that have come through Sunshine Canyon Dog Rescue. He knows tons of commands and is great with human communication. When Thomas was in his foster home in TX he was scared of the big dogs so the foster kept them separated. He was then transported to a foster home here in CO where there were no dogs and little kids. Thomas grew incredibly fond of the kids right away and was just smitten with them. We believe this is because of this fatherly instincts from having pups of his own. We had the foster introduce Thomas to some dogs and he really was not a fan of the big dog. She then introduced him to a little dog, and there was some initial growlyness, but after a short amount of time they were doing just fine together! About 2 weeks went on and everything was wonderful with Thomas, but he was showing a little terrier sass. Thomas became a little protective of his toys and the kiddos in the house. The trainer said it was because he has been shuffled around so much, has never really had any proper direction or communication from humans, and really just needed some guidance. We decided that before placing Thomas in a forever home we wanted to get some professional training for him so that he could be the PERFECT dog once he finally does get adopted. Thomas has now been in "board and train" where he gets about 8 hours of professional training a day by some of the best trainers in the state. He has been do so awesome and the trainers say he is one of their favorite. When we talked to the trainer the other day she said that Thomas has showed no negative behavior towards humans at all, but they have been working on his human-dog communication skills anyway. Thomas can now go to a doggy play group every day and is doing awesome. The trainer said he could be placed in a home with another dog as long as the adopter was willing to work with the situation and not just expect immediate gratification. We are thinking that since Thomas does get protective over little kids (which is kinda endearing) but it would be best to place him in a home with older kids or just adults. Thomas is now one of the most well trained dogs to ever come through Sunshine Canyon Dog Rescue. The Board and Train program also offers 3 free hours and phone sessions to his new family so they can get him off on the right foot and on the way to becoming the perfect family member. Thomas would be such an amazing companion for someone who is looking for a dog that is very smart and very well trained. We would also still love for Thomas to have a home where he can snuggle and get tons of affection and love since that was his favorite activity in his foster home. Thomas is the perfect size to hike the CO mountains with someone. Anybody who is interested in Thomas, we would love for them to talk to the trainer to get more info and to make sure everyone feels like it's a great match. If you are interested in learning more about Thomas or filling out an adoption application, please email at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-22-00145Lacey (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Lacey is one of 3 dogs we have flying to the states from Thailand on 9/30. We are working with the Elephant Nature Park to help open some space in the sanctuary. We have committed to taking dogs that are getting bullied there as they do not have separated living spaces. Lacey is one of those girls. She was originally rescued from a planned mass poisoning at Mar Rim Army Base in December of 2012. She has been waiting for her forever family ever since. Lacey is sweet as can be and the other dogs take advantage of that. She LOVES to be around people and craves attention. Lacey's picture is deceiving as she weighs just about 25lbs. We are ... (Read More)totally guessing at her breeds so if you have any ideas please share! We are really hoping to have Lacey go directly into an adoptive home. If you're interested in adopting this sweet girl please email us at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com. Thanks! (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-19-00275Honey (female)

Chow Chow Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Honey and her babies were found as strays in Houston, TX. Due to mange she had almost no hair on her body. She has been in foster care for a while and looks like a totally different dog! We asked her foster mom for a description of her behaviors and possible breeds and this is what we got: Honey is a seriously sweet dog with a passion for loving her humans. She follows all of us around the house as if to be sure we aren't getting into trouble without her. She's a protector. A cuddle pup. Honey likes to watch her humans as they read, sit, talk, work on computers, eat and sleep. She starts wagging her tail like crazy when I even glance ... (Read More)at her. Sooo sweet. Her goals in life seem to be 1) Getting hugs from her peeps 2) Chasing bunnies 3) Obtaining belly rubs 4) Chasing bunnies 5) Sneaking pizza and pasta from countertops 6) Going for walks so that she can look for bunnies and squirrels. No. 5 has led us to believe that Honey was a chef in a former life. She is a true 'foodie' at heart. Quinoa fritters drizzled with tahini sauce. Check. Veggie pizza fresh from the oven. Check that box twice. Chicken alfredo? Yes, please. Essentially, if you leave something on the counter, you lose it. She looks too short for the job, but I swear she turns into a giraffe when something gourmet is left in the kitchen. When she isn't trying to 'Jamie Oliver' our kitchen, she eats Kirkland's Salmon and Sweet Potato dog food. We have switched her food 3 times since she came into our lives and she has never had any problems with the transition. I have not used a kennel with Honey. Honey doesn't need it and she doesn't deserve it. She sleeps fine on the carpeted floor. She doesn't jump on our couch unless asked to do so (but she will jump on the couch to peek in the yard for bunnies). She is fantastic with our cat, but I never leave them aloneČ'Ř|just in case. She is fine being left in the yard with Loki (our male Husky). They are great pals. She also seems fine with sleeping outside. Honey has had minor urination accidents (maybe 3?). But I believe her to be completely potty trained. She is great with ALL humans regardless of age, gender, size. I've come up with Honey's breed(s). Definitely Chow. I've lived with Chow dogs and I would bet a couple of pinky toes that she is part Chow. I'm also betting something rather small that likes to herd her peopleČ'Ř|Aussie most likely. Finally, the coat has stumped me. I couldn't quite place it until literally last weekend when I met up with a blond Golden Retriever. That's it. THAT is her coat. SO there you have it! Honey is heartworm positive and is currently undergoing treatment. She will be able to live a full and happy life after her injections! If you are interested in adopting this beautiful girl please email us at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-09-06-00391Charlie (male)

Gordon Setter Mix    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Meet our love, Charlie. His life hasn't been all roses so far. A few weeks ago he was picked up as a stray and brought to a high kill shelter just outside of Houston. We took one look at his sweet face and knew we had to get him out of there. With the help of an amazing volunteer, who is now his foster, we were able to spring Charlie from the depressing shelter. She took him to the vet & groomer right away. Charlie's fur was matted & dirty so he thoroughly enjoyed his spa day. He has been with his foster for a couple weeks now. He is tick & flea free and feeling good! We recently found out that Charlie is heartworm positive so he has ... (Read More)started his medication and is gaining strength everyday. In the past few weeks we have learned that Charlie LOVES tennis balls and cozy beds. He carries his ball with him most of the time and is starting to understand 'drop it' but sometimes just likes to be chased around instead of playing catch. Charlie, like most dogs we rescue, has forgotten the humans who have done him wrong and is ALL about belly rubs & human affection. Charlie has excellent house manners and hasn't had any accidents. He can be trusted unattended in the house and is not destructive. He spends his days snoozin' while everyone is at work and school but greets his foster family with tail wags (ball in mouth) when they return! Charlie walks well on a leash and enjoys strolling around the park. We think he will make a great hiking companion when his heartworm treatment is complete. Charlie weighs in at about 52lbs of pure joy. We aren't sure what else we can say to prove that Charlie is the total package. We know he will melt your heart in no time, just like he has done with his foster family! If you're interested in adopting Charlie please email us at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-08-26-00380Juno (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Come on, how in the world can you resist that face! Juno is cute and she knows it! She and her 7 siblings were running out of time in a high kill shelter in Kansas when we found out about them! We couldn't believe that these sweet puppies were facing euthanasia and we spoke up for them immediately! We have been told that they are good with kids, cats & dogs. They are all pretty confident, for being in a shelter & are romping with each other. Juno will make a great family dog. She is great with dogs, cats & kiddos. Juno is a smart cookie who picks up on things quickly. She is looking for someone who is willing to commit to training & ... (Read More)socializing a puppy. She promises a lifetime or love and loyalty if you just give her a chance! Juno is arriving in CO 8/31. If you're interested in adopting her please email us at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com. Thank you!

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-28-00545Lux (female)

German Shepherd Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    Lux & her siblings were found living in a horse trailer in rural TX. They were terrified and covered in their own feces. Lucky for them, they were found by rescuers who quickly brought them home, bathed them and got them medical attention. Because their beginning memories of people aren't the best they are a little timid and socialization will be huge for these pups (there are free classes through many training facilities). They are hopping on a private plane to CO on 7/31 and we would love for them to go straight into adoptive homes or a foster to adopt situation. Lux is great with other dogs and loves people. She deserves a committed ... (Read More)family who will see her through. Lux is ready to live life like the puppy she is, a life out of fear. We know she will thrive here in Colorado. We think she would do great home a with another dog but it is not necessary. If you're interested in spending your days with Lux please email us at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com for an application.

Lab Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Good w/ Most Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Vaccinations Current 

    I'm sure at this point your heart is melting. I tend to do that to people. I can assure you that my personality is just as beautiful. My littermates and I traveled here all the way from Brownfield, TX. We've been through quite a lot. At the shelter we were covered in ticks and had ringworm. Once we arrived to Colorado we came down with parvo. Luckily, our foster mom rocks and was able to nurse us all back to 100% from the comfort of our home! We pretty much hit the jack pot of foster homes. Our days are spent eating, napping, playing & of course napping. Puppy requirement #1! Foster mom has introduced me to her chickens, cats & adult dogs. ... (Read More)I'm starting to like them all I am learning a lot here! I like to go potty outside but still have accidents. I am used to sleeping in a puppy pile in a crate. When I get adopted on my own it might take me a little while to adjust to sleeping alone, I hope you understand! My forever family should be up for taking classes with me! I am eager to learn and want to grow up to make you proud. I also want active people who are ready to explore, play and live life to the fullest! If you're interested in guiding me through life email sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com! (Less)
