|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-25-00485River (male)|
River is an incredibly cute ball of cottony fur that climbs into your heart (and lap) with a wiggle. Once he gets a sudsy bath and grooming...he'll absolutely be one of the cutest Schnoodles (Schnauzer/Poodles mixes) around. At just 12 week old and 9.4 lbs (anticipated to weigh approximately 40 - 45 lbs when full-grown - the perfect size for hiking, running or any fun activity in the beautiful Colorado mountains and streams). River is every bit the puppy...fun and active....but at the same time he is a well-behaved and exceptionally smart pup who is not yappy or unnecessarily needy - he expresses himself with his wagging tail and excited kisses. At this early point in River's development, he loves everyone..be it human or canine (cats are unknown). We want to nurture this positive vision of the world by matching River to a family who expresses their devotion for him in many different ways. We'd like River to attend puppy kindergarten followed by positive reinforcement group obedience group classes to be the very best adult dog he's capable of being. These classes also create a very strong bond between a pup and his people. Right now, River is a blank slate who will soak up positive feedback with every effort to be the best behaved guy around. We'd also prefer River to be with a family... gentle older children (8+ would be great - we would be concerned about tail-pulling or awkward carrying by younger kids) or with an active adult family or retirees who will include River in their activities. River is currently so portable that he can easily be a constant companion - he would love nothing more than leisurely walks, trips to the store (he's a great window-shopping friend) or even a place at a pet-friendly workplace. The time is perfect to socialize this puppy to love and accept respectful humans and other dogs. Rive is so young that he can be introduced to virtually any situation...and if there is love and gentle guidance...he can succeed. River's new family has to have the motivation and energy for a young pup...he requires house training, behavioral guidance and tons of love to give him a positive attitude about the world. River will not be neutered when he arrives in Boulder -the Texas shelter considers him too young. We don't... and will cover all costs to neuter and microchip River at our Denver vet after his arrival in Colorado. River appears to be a non-shedding (or very lightly shedding) guy and will therefore require periodic grooming to keep his coat cottony-soft and matt-free. Sweet River will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 8/28/15. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If you're interested in this sweet, endearing and very fun puppy, please fill out and return to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax to 303-443-7730 or mail a hard copy to Farfel's Farm 906 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-25-00438Brandy (female)|
When we are asked about a special rescue pup that is snuggly, sweet and very fun-loving, we can't help but think of Brandy. Her smile is shining...and maybe just a bit mischievous. Brandy's foster mom knows it's morning when Brandy's little head comes under the blanket...getting closer and closer..and then a huge kiss of love. This curious and really, really smart 24 - 35 month old, 24 lb mix (such a great medium size..perfect for hiking and just right to take everywhere a sweet pup is welcome) is a truly great companion. There aren't many visible signs that Brandy was in a very scary high-kill shelter. She's sometimes shy and can hold back in certain situations..but a warm hug and reassuring words..and Brandy bounces back and cuddles just a bit closer. We picture Brandy as a best friend to active retirees or a family with older and active kids. She'd be so loyal.. and overjoyed to share her love and good will. There's also no question that Brandy would be one of the most popular girl on the block. Once comfortable, she loves to engage and just be her entertaining, adorable self. Even though Brandy is usually up for pretty much any activity, she's never pushy. Exercise..perhaps long, leisurely walks or more challenging hikes to socialize with others..and mental stimulation that comes from her time with her humans is important to this sweet girl to keep her happy and well-behaved. it's not that she requires extensive amounts of anything, just enough to keep her healthy and stimulated. Brandy would also enjoy time with very gentle and a bit older, dog-loving kids. She's such an easy-going pup..but we wouldn't want her tail being pulled or anything but the gentlest of handling. Brandy derives so much joy from her relationships, we would love to see her in an active family that just loves her dearly...she's a great dog who deserves this in her life. It also appears (after some research on our part) that Schnauzer/Terrier mixes are wonderful. Schnauzers tend to be so cute and the most devoted of companions...combined with the energy and inquisitive nature of the Terrier, you end up with a humorous and loyal family member. Brandy appears to be a non-shedder...although we'll know for sure once her sad shelter hair grows out and we see the beauty of her scruffy Terrier coat after the benefit of healthy food and clean conditions. Brandy will require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep her stunning cinnamon coat (that seems to have a mind of its own) healthy and matt-free. Brandy will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 8/28/15.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-25-00285Mindy (female)|
We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable puppy. They're so new and fresh with every possibility open to them. That's the case unless they're in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space...then they can become a bit shy as if the world is a tentative place. With love and assurance..they quickly come back overflowing with puppy love and opportunity. We're so grateful for the efforts of the great Houston rescuers in saving Mindy and bringing back her puppy joy...they could see that her temperament was so loving that they couldn't allow her to be euthanized. Mindy was immediately brought to be vetted and temperament tested...she passed both with flying colors. The vet's assessment was that Mindy has a great/kind temperament that will grow brighter each day as she receives love, hugs and of course treats. Mindy was then brought to a great Texas foster home to begin her education around house manners and socialization. It turns out that Mindy, at only 16 weeks old, is so cooperative that it's been a fun and rewarding experience for her foster mom to watch her blossom. Mindy is like a blank slate...open and curious about the possibilities of the world. If she continues her regimen of time with loving humans and puppy kindergarten classes followed by Obedience I, Mindy will become a well-adjusted and extremely pleasant adult companion. Mindy is a gorgeous puppy with a Benji-like coat that speaks of youth and good health. Her demeanor is just who she is...she appears to be just a bit more analytical than your average crazy puppy. If you are kind to Mindy, she is your best friend and is very interested in some serious bonding. If she is treated respectfully (treats and belly rubs always help) with clear behavioral guidelines, she will become a well-adjusted adult dog who respects her people as her leaders. This is the kind of family we're searching for for Mindy. Mindy currently weighs 7.2 lbs (the vets anticipate her to weigh approximately 14 lbs when full-grown.) She's the perfect size to be very portable and low-maintenance enough to take along on fun adventures. We feel it's very important that Mindy is provided with exercise and mental stimulation to develop into a well-adjusted companion. She will be a great size to enjoy hiking and adventures in the Colorado mountains..a perfect best friend! We'd also like a family who spends lots of time at home and chooses to include a fuzzy puppy in their activities. Mindy appears to a be a non-shedding...or very light shedding puppy (she is thought to be a mix of 2 non-shedding breeds)...although it's difficult to tell for certain since she still has her baby coat. Mindy will require periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition to keep her hair silky-soft and matt-free. We've requested that Mindy be spayed prior to her transport to Denver. If this doesn't occur, Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for Mindy's spay and microchip is our Denver vet is used. Sweet Mindy will be arriving on transport in Denver on Friday 8/28/15. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If you're interested in this sweet, endearing and very fun puppy, please fill out and return to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax to 303-443-7730 or mail a hard copy to Farfel's Farm 906 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-23-00035Lena (female)|
You know that we all have our favorites...maybe it's the pup that snuggles a bit closer or wags her entire body when she sees you simply because she can't contain how much she loves you. These descriptions could be Lena. Her Texas rescuers were set on saving this sweet girl's life when Lena got caught in an extremely overcrowded shelter system that doesn't have the time or personnel to deal with the little dog in the dark cage... wagging her tail so hopefully. But luck wasn't with Lena as she got transferred to the section of the shelter reserved for dogs with just 24 hours left. Lena has allergies to fleas and Houston shelters don't treat this very curable dermatitis. It's just another way to trim down the shelter population. Thank goodness for Lena's great temperament and her sweet and expressive eyes that were so pleading...these were her tickets to transport and a new life in Colorado. Lena was vetted, temperament tested and brought to a Texas foster home to get the attention she always deserved and to work on her house skills. Before long, Lena was ready for her trip to Colorado - a bit wiser and so excited about her new possibilities. We feel like Lena might have been treated unkindly during her short life. She's a bit timid in new situations...but give her a minute (and a belly rub would be great) and her sweet and kind personality starts to emerge. With a bit of kindness, Lena understands that there is no intention to hurt her..and all is right with the world. Lena never hesitates to put her best self forward...that is an engaging personality and enthusiasm for her favorite people and canine friends We can't forget that Lena, at only 12 lbs and approximately 12 - 18 months old, is still learning and her behavior will not have the consistent maturity of a dog who's already learned the ropes. Lena's a blank slate waiting to be led. Being close to the puppy stage still, Lena is open to new ideas with new ways of approaching challenges. She just needs a human who is clear with a young dog. Lena (like all dogs) would benefit from positive reinforcement group training classes so she can be given clear guidelines and fun socialization. It would also cement the relationship with her family so Lena will understand that she is loved and accepted. Lena would be a great take-along pup for retirees or a family with older (and very gentle) kids who desire the loving and cuddly presence of a furry best friend. They would need to provide her with the exercise and mental stimulation that every well-adjusted young pup should have. They couldn't, however, let her incredible cuteness get to them - they would need to provide leadership so this young girl knows what they're asking of her - she will then be an exceptional partner and devoted companion. Lena appears to be a non-shedding pup and will therefore require great nutrition and periodic grooming to keep her cottony-soft coat healthy and matt-free. Lena will be arriving on transport in Denver on 8/28/15.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-21-00270Copper (female)|
There's nothing quite like puppy energy and silliness...and then they lie quietly on your shoulder breathing their warm baby breath. They're so pure and vulnerable that it's unbearable to think that they're homeless in rural Oklahoma. A giving and kind rescuer temporarily took Copper in to prevent her from the horrors of a high-kill Oklahoma shelter. Farfel's was contacted about the great personality and over- the- top cuteness of this special puppy and couldn't turn away. Copper deserves a great home and loving guardians just as much as any sweet and engaging puppy with a great temperament. Copper, at just 14 weeks old and 15 lbs was facing the end of her life before it ever began. ...she was rescued just in the nick of time. This sweet and engaging Schnauzer/Terrier mix...a very popular new breed mix that's loved for their cuteness ( such beautiful markings), a silky-soft coat and the most engaging of personalities... is starting out with great energy. The excellent results of Copper's temperament-testing ended with a transport ticket to Colorado and a new life. Her Oklahoma foster said the following about sweet Copper: Copper is truly a gem! She has the kind of temperament that we all search for in a family dog! She has been nothing but great since she arrived at my house. She's positive and perfect with other dogs. She's also been great with my my 8-year old and her friends (I imagine she would be equally great with all ages of kids that are gentle with her, but I haven't seen her with any younger than 8). I'm amazed that Copper's excelled in her potty training since she's just a baby...but she's having virtually no accidents! She's also learning the leash with lightening speed (my kids can even walk her) and...oh joy...she's got her night routine down and sleeps the night away in her crate without a peep! Copper is appropriately playful and inquisitive for her young age. She's so smart and very engaging...so typical of this breed mix. She's also bright and so loving (loves to cuddle in your lap-but sometimes puppy energy calls and then it's fun and entertaining antics!). Copper clearly has no memory of her scary start. Since she is such a young girl, she's a blank slate just waiting for a kind and patient human to show her the way. She has all the potential in the world to be an awesome companion. She will form firm bonds with her family (as well as other dogs and humans) and learn positive socialization skills through being exposed to many different situations out in the world as well as positive reinforcement group Obedience Classes. It does take time and commitment...yet pays off a thousand times over when you have a dog that can accompany you in the outside world with appropriate behavior. We're open to Copper finding her forever home with an active retired couple or individual with lots of energy to train and enjoy a puppy. Copper is great with children and other dogs as well. We would prefer to place her in a home with a bit older children that can participate in a gentle yet consistent training regimen. Copper is up to date on her vetting. We're hoping that she will be spayed when she arrives from Oklahoma, however a puppy like Copper is often deemed too young to fix. If this is the case, Farfel's will cover all costs for Copper to be spayed, micro chipped and given her second puppy shot at our vet in Denver to be in line with our commitment to be a health-conscious part of the solution to pet overpopulation. Copper will be arriving on transport in Denver on 8/28/15. If interested in this beautiful, sweet as can be and very fun companion, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org. (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 15-08-16-00605Rudy-ADOPTION PENDING (male)|
What a sweet and kind Maltese/Schnauzer our Rudy is! These mixes are being opportunistically bred for their adorable looks, non-shedding cotton-soft coats and great temperaments. As a result of this human greed, these pups are being bred, sold for very high prices or dumped if they have any challenges. Farfel's Rescue is very happy to rescue these dogs and find them nurturing and committed homes. At 2.5 years old and just about 14 lbs, Rudy is an incredibly beautiful guy who truly deserves a break in life. We all know Rudy has arrived when we see the wag that starts at his tail and becomes a full-blown body wiggle...Rudy is greeting either a friend or anyone who has the potential to be a future playmate. He is initially cautious...assessing the situation to make sure all is OK. This makes perfect sense as he's been through time spent at a high-kill shelter waiting for his pending euthanasia date. When he was identified with a great temperament, Farfel's spoke up to bring Rudy to safety (and a new forever family) in Colorado. Once he senses that all present are his friends, Rudy is warm and friendly...and he always hopes every pat and kind word will turn into a friend. Both people and other dogs are drawn to Rudy for his kind attitude and playful ways. He is just starting to learn to play fetch (he had never had a toy prior to his rescue) and waits expectantly...with his eyes so bright and joyful - trying to understand the concept of play. Rudy's foster is also just starting his leash work...he's so happy if he senses that he's done a good job. Farfel's Rescue has determined that Rudy needs a mellow home where he is an active and important member of the family. We feel that this would be more possible in an adult home (retirees would be perfect) where there's a more predictable environment. Rudy would be overjoyed to spend parts of the day with his family walking through the beauty of Colorado. Then at day's end, he's the ultimate snuggler and sleeps soundly through the night. It is Rudy's love affair with life and all the hardships that he's suffered along the way that motivates Farfel's to put Rudy through Heartworm treatments..his precious life deserves to be saved! Rudy has tested HW+ and Farfel's (with the help of Dr G in Denver) has volunteered to save this very special dog's life. The heart worm treatment process involves several shots followed by a short period of quiet time for the dog. We have found this protocol to be very successful and the dogs go on to live long, happy lives. We are seeking an adopter to lovingly care for Rudy as he becomes Heartworm negative. It's quite an easy rehab process as it only entails mellow time with soft words and belly rubs. Farfel's will pay the vet bills and provide premium food and treats for this special pup as he becomes healthily heartworm-free. Rudy (like all dogs) would benefit from positive reinforcement obedience classes that included the whole family - he is a super-smart guy who truly wants to please. Great training will give Rudy the skills to be an excellent adult dog. These type of classes will also bring out the great qualities of this Maltese/Schnauzer as well as creating a tightly-knit bonding with all family members . Rudy is a non-shedding pup with a potentially beautiful coat with such distinctive colors running through it. It's very difficult to see the physical beauty of sweet Rudy due to the sad and ignored quality of his hair. Farfel's will be happy to cover the cost of a well-deserved bath and grooming for Rudy at our groomer's salon in Denver. Rudy will always require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his hair healthy, cottony-soft and matt-free. Rudy will arrive on transport in Boulder on 8/21/15. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If interested in this sweet and devoted companion, please fill out and return to email@example.com.

|Rescue Me ID: 15-07-27-00583Berny (male)|
Berny is a 6YO, 11lb schnoodle. It is very easy to tell that Berny has been through a lot in his life. When we got him off transport he was too scared to even come out of the crate for hours. He was so matted and dirty it was hard to believe that any family would let him live that way. Not only that, but Berny is now blind in one eye, due to what could have been a birth defect, or an infection. Now that Berny is in a loving foster home, his true personality is starting to come out. Berney gets along great with other dogs and cats. Even though he is 6 years old, he does not act like it. He absolutely loves to go to the dog park and play fetch, he brings it back every time. Berny also loves to just hang out and have lazy days. His favorite spot is to be curled up on the couch next to his foster and the other foster dogs. Berny was overweight when he came to us, and still needs to lose a few lbs, but now that he is getting proper exercise and nutrition he is already starting to look so much healthier. Finding a new home for Berny is also a second chance of living life the way he should. He was clearly not taken care of too well before, but he does not let that stop him from getting attached and having the capacity to love someone. At this time, we will not adopt Berny to a family with kids under 15 because he can get startled easily, and we do not think that is fair to put him in a home where he will feel 100% relaxed and safe all the time. We believe he may get scared sometimes because he does not always see people coming since he is blind in one eye. Other than the rare startle, Being blind in one eye does not prevent Berny from anything. Since Berny is none-shedding, hypo-alergenic dog, he will need regular grooming appointments. If you are interested in Berny, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org (Less)

|Rescue Me ID: 14-09-23-01159LILY (female)|
LILY is a 3 year old Giant Schnauzer mix whose former owner did not want to deal with her wariness of new people. In her foster home she has learned to be more trusting of new people with a little bit of time, but can react to unknown noises and sudden movements. She currently lives in a household with a cat and has regular play dates with her Briard mix boyfriend, although at the shelter she was reported to be selective in engaging with the other dogs. Lily needs a home that will provide her with patience and kindness. She is spayed and current on vaccinations. For an adoption application or additional information, please email email@example.com or call 303-882-0837. (Less)

|PIease Read Before Adopting a Schnauzer in Colorado|
Schnauzer Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Schnauzer is a thickly bearded, medium sized, Terrier type dog. Schnauzers are proud, vivacious animals. Schnauzers are protective toward their people and want to be the boss. It is important to thoroughly socialize and train a Schnauzer when it is a puppy. Schnauzers do fine with older kids. A Schnauzer needs lots and lots of exercise and a daily walk but can live in an apartment if its exercise needs are met.
