4 Paws 4 Life Rescue

4 Paws 4 Life rescue pulls dogs from HIGH KILL shelters and places them in preapproved foster homes until we can find the dog a qualified permanent home. We rehome all breeds and all ages of dogs. Pet overpopulation and shelters who euthanize dogs are the main 2 reasons that we need to help these orphaned pets who can not help themselves.

Meet Royalty

Royalty is a sweet, loving and compassionate dog. She loves being with her person all the time and loves following him around. She enjoys car rides, walks, snuggles and rubs. Royalty was an abandoned dog, and worries she might be abandoned again. If she doesn't have/see her person, she may cry. She is not destructive. She is quiet, not much of a barker. If there are other dogs in the home, do a slow introduction and she will be great with them. Royalty currently eats at the same time with other dogs and shows no food aggression. With patience from her person Royalty will give love, trust and loyalty.Royalty was rescued from a high kill shelter in Texas. This girl is not being treated like royalty, even if that is her name.  Royalty was turned in by a family member when the primary owner left town. They threatened to dump her in the woods if the shelter would not take her. Royalty was very pregnant. She gave birth 2 days later to 12 puppies. Unfortunately, 5 of her puppies passed before we could get her safely to Colorado. Meet and greets are by appointment only.  An approved application is required to schedule a meeting. Check out our events page for upcoming open adoption events!We have no additional back story or update for this dog at this time.  When we do, it will be updated here.  This is all the information we have currently. Approved Applicants may make the adoption fee payment by clicking donate above.  Partial adoption fees will not hold a dog. Dogs adopted with our rescue come with FREE training from #GoodPup to help you build strong bonds from the start! If upon meeting the dog of your choosing at your scheduled pickup time you find that you aren't a good match, your deposit will be fully refunded. Adoption fees include vaccines up until time of adoption, microchip, spay/neuter and 1st 30 days of free Pet insurance.  We are not affiliated with Pet First pet insurance. (you have to sign up for the insurance or it will not go into effect).  Adoption fees help cover the medical care of the animals while he or she waits for a new home, as well as food and transportation costs. These fees help to provide care for the other animals in the shelter or rescue group who may have medical bills that are much higher than any possible adoption fee. The money also acts as a donation to help support the organization as a whole, allowing the group to continue its efforts to rescue and rehome pets. The dogs in our care are fostered in Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico.  While all dogs are picked up during our scheduled times, sometimes transport dates change due to unforeseen circumstances.   More questions?  Read our FAQs here: https://4p4l.org/faqs/  Breed labels are a "best guess" by a shelter veterinarian and cannot be guaranteed.  A new study has concluded that (in layman's terms), breed assumption is NOT indicative of behavior in mixed breed dogs.  Therefore, if a dog looks presumably to be a German Shepherd breed, one cannot assume the dog will have a high prey drive.  From the study: "Although many physical traits were associated with breeds, behavior was much more variable among individual dogs. In general, physical trait heritability was a greater predictor of breed but was not necessarily a predictor of breed ancestry in mutts. Among behavioral traits, biddability—how well dogs respond to human direction—was the most heritable by breed but varied significantly among individual dogs. Thus, dog breed is generally a poor predictor of individual behavior and should not be used to inform decisions relating to selection of a pet dog" - https://www.science.org/doi/10.1126/science.abk0639
