About Darcy

Adoption Fee: $400

Meet Darcy. So many of you have been following Darcy's story and her recovery. We are pleased to say she has been given the green light by our veterinarian to start looking for her forever home. Thank you to all of our incredible donors and her amazing, dedicated foster mom, who helped make Darcy's recovery possible.

Darcy is a beautiful petite female Golden Retriever of approximately 9-10 years old. This girl came to us after being dumped in a field w/ sheep and goats: no food, no water, no family. Our volunteer rushed to the shelter after being advised as to Darcy's condition. She was so happy to be saved, wanting to ride in the front seat of her foster mom's car. Darcy's tail thumped all the way happily home, over a 2-hour drive!

Darcy's first stop was the groomer for a bath and pampering she deserved and needed. Early the next morning, Darcy saw our vet. She had a severe ear and eye infection plus a skin infection, intestinal infection, decayed teeth, and a mass on her tail in addition to being severely underweight. After completing several rounds of tests, Darcy came home with her foster having seven medications! She needed to be bathed every other day with a medicated shampoo. We had our work cut out for us.

Miracles do happen. Darcy made noticeable daily progress. Her eyes improved, her ears cleared. Her coat glowed, and she gained weight steadily. Less than two months later, she was given a clean bill of health and was ready for her needed surgeries to remove the mass from her tail, dental, and her spay. We biopsied the mass, and we are happy to report it was benign.

Darcy is well behaved, including meeting her foster family's pets. Large dogs, small dogs, a cat, and turtles. She quickly learned the doggy door and never had an accident in the house. She has no food aggression, sits perfectly for her bowl to be placed down, with the other pets for her three meals per day.

She is a "Super Counter Surfer." Nothing is safe within her reach. Her new family will need to be diligent, making sure that counters remain cleared, safe from anything she can get put in her mouth. Gum, candy, medications, need to be put away in a locked cabinet.

Darcy walks perfectly on a leash, greeting everyone she meets. True to her breed, she loves to retrieve balls, and will frequently be seen carrying any stuffed toy around with her. She enjoys a comfy dog bed but quickly copied her foster mom's dogs and lounges on a couch or bed.

Darcy is spayed, up to date on her vaccines, microchipped, completed blood work done, and dental. She's now ready to meet her new family. This sweet girl will make a great companion for anyone.

If you have an interest in making Darcy part of your family, please complete our application. If you are already approved, please send an email to adopt@wclrr.org and express your interest in meeting Darcy!

Meet Ken! He is a sweet, loving,  11-year-old (approximately) male Labrador Retriever. WCLRR rescued Ken from a shelter located in the high desert, where he was listed as a stray. Ken had a horrible ear and skin infections and was in poor condition waiting for someone to take him home. He is truly a wonderful boy, and it's hard to believe anyone could have let him go. It was evident from his condition Ken was severely neglected for an exceptionally long time.  Ken is well behaved, very affectionate, and always by your side or at your feet. He is genuinely a Velcro dog who wants nothing more than to soak up all the love and affection he undoubtedly lacked in his previous home.    Ken has been cleared for adoption and will more than likely continue to need medication for allergies to help keep his skin clear and stop the itching.  His ears have cleared up, but he does have some unresolved hematomas that are not painful. They make his ears stick out a bit, adding to his personality!  Ken loves the dogs at his foster home. He is an easy-going boy looking for a lower-key family that will give him everything he deserves. Ken is a handsome dog who will make a great, loyal companion. If you are looking for a cuddle bug and an easy-going sweetheart, Ken might be your boy.    Ken had a complete exam and senior workup at our vet. He is neutered, up to date on his shots, and microchipped.   If you are interested in Ken and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "KEN" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Roman! He is a big, sweet, lovable five-year-old Labrador Retriever with a beautiful glossy black coat. He came to WCLRR through a high desert shelter, where he was listed as an owner surrender. Once notified, WCLRR immediately took him in. He underwent a complicated neuter surgery, and during the surgery. During his preop evaluation, the doctor discovered Roman is suffering from hip dysplasia.  Roman is doing well on medication to control inflammation in his hips. He enjoys several short (under one mile) daily walks and romping in the backyard with his toys. Roman thoroughly enjoys his toys and acts like a silly puppy when entertaining himself with them – flipping toys in the air, batting at them, and chasing them.  WCLRR consulted with a specialist to determine the best course of action for Roman's hips, and at this time, the rescue was advised surgery isn't indicated. Roman shows no signs of pain or limping as long as his activity level is kept moderate. However, he will need medication to keep him comfortable for the rest of his life.  Roman is crate trained, but he prefers to sleep on his bed near his foster parents at night. He sleeps well through the night and waits for his owners to awake before he starts to stir. Roman has good house manners and seems to know basic commands and how to use a doggy door. He did, however, have a few accidents in the first few days in his foster home. Once he became comfortable in his new surroundings, he didn't have anymore. Roman's new family needs to understand there may be a few potty accidents as Roman gets used to his new home. Roman is very food-driven, but he takes treats gently. Despite his fondness for food, Roman doesn't show any signs of food aggression. His foster found training is more straightforward because he responds well to treats.  He will sniff around counters and in trash cans searching for food, so his new family needs to take care to keep counters clear of anything that could be toxic to him and have trash cans with lids.  Roman will do best with a family where someone is home most of the day. He prefers to be next to his family and rest in his crate nearby as you work or watch TV. His fosters leave the crate open, so Roman can come out to snuggle or a belly rub. He may become anxious when first left alone but settles down after a short while. Roman loves walks and is good on a leash. He doesn't pull or wander. However, Roman tends to get nervous when exposed to other dogs and cats and can be leash reactive.  He will circle, jump and bark. He needs further training to become comfortable around other animals, but for now, he requires to be the "one and only" pet in his new home. Roman is a big, strong, friendly boy who would make a great companion to love, pet, and snuggle. Roman is neutered, microchipped, and up to date with shots. If you are interested in Roman and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "ROMAN" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.

Meet Stevie! He is a stunning blind male yellow Labrador Retriever, approximately six years old. Stevie came to WCLRR when his family could no longer keep him. Stevie is currently in a safe and loving foster home with a lot of experience fostering blind Labrador Retrievers. Aside from blindness, Stevie is a healthy, happy boy who loves his people.  Stevie is a delightful dog who enjoys having his belly and back scratched and being gently rubbed around his ears. He is fine with the dogs he's fostered with, and with an occasional bump here and there, cruises around his foster home with ease. Stevie can get up and down stairs without issues.  Stevie is housebroken. However, his family should let him outside regularly to avoid an accident. A nightly potty before bedtime ensures he'll sleep through the night. He is a typical Labrador Retriever and loves his food and treats, and while he gets very excited about his meals, he takes treats gently. Stevie's blindness is caused by cataracts, probably due to poor breeding practices. WCLRR was hopeful we could surgically correct the condition. However, during his preop appointment, the eye specialist found his disease had advanced to a stage where surgery is no longer an option. Fortunately, we can maintain his eyes with daily medication (eye drops) and prevent them from ending up with Glaucoma. A visit to the eye specialist should be part of his yearly health routine. Due to his blindness, Stevie has zero depth perception and could accidentally nip a child's hand holding a toy or treat; therefore, we cannot adopt Stevie to a family with young children. Stevie needs work on walking on the leash, which appears something his family never did with him, and now that he's blind, it has become more of a challenge. He is an extremely powerful dog and will need an owner that has good upper body strength until he learns better leash skills. Stevie enjoys riding in the car. He'll need to be partially lifted in and should be tethered so he doesn't wander around during your driving.  We'd like to see Stevie go to a home that has experience with larger blind dogs but it is not a requirement. There are some things that he'll need accommodation with and particular objects removed from his path. Once he learns the layout of the home, however, he can navigate it well. If he goes to a home with another canine friend, the other dog should not be reactive if Stevie accidentally bumps into or steps on them. He enjoys a good game of "bitey-face" with his dog friends, which is typical Labrador Retriever play. An Ophthalmologist examined Stevie, and their full report will be made available to potential adopters. He is up to date on his shots, was neutered, and is microchipped.  If you are interested in Stevie and have already been approved to adopt, please send an email to ADOPT@WCLRR.ORG and put "STEVIE" in the subject line explaining why he is an excellent fit for your family.  If you have NOT filled out an adoption application yet with WCLRR, please click HERE.  If you have been approved to adopt with WCLRR, follow the instructions given to you during your home interview (and in this bio) explaining how to request being considered to adopt this dog. show less
