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.

Dusty finally made it to Colorado from Texas and is ready for his fur-ever home. He is definitely a Colorado dog at heart who was simply born in the wrong state. He loves snow, going on hikes, and playing with other dogs at the local dog park. Just a young boy, only about 8 months old, he can be shy in unknown situations but then warms up quickly and wants to love on anyone and everyone. Dusty is a very smart boy who already knows “sit”, “wait”, “come”, and “down”. He is crate-trained, housebroken, knows how to use a dog door, and has learned to sit and wait patiently for his leash, his food bowl, and to go outside. He’s currently learning to “kennel up”, but training does not take long with this boy since he only wants to please. He has been tested with older children (10 and up) and did great. He has shown the ability to climb a 4foot chainlink fence while unsupervised, but he currently has daily supervised romps in an area with similar fencing and has shown no interest in the fence. He would be happy in a home with people to love on and cuddle with, and at least one other dog buddy to play with. Dusty is currently in Fort Collins.
