Rescue Me ID: 16-04-27-00191Melia (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Melia was so fearful as she came into a very high-kill Texas shelter. After all, she's a sensitive and very kind girl...and through it all she seemed like an old soul taking it all in. She was never nasty or snippy..just initially fearful of new people who might hurt her. She soon found out otherwise and has spent parts of her shelter time on the laps of personnel...needless to say that she's a favorite. It just isn't in her nature to be anything but sweet. Melia, at just 8 months old and 9 lbs (anticipated to be approximately 11 lbs when full-grown) represents the sad irresponsibility that is so present when pet guardians choose not to ... (Read More)spay/neuter. These unwanted dogs deserve a great life every bit as much as any other living being. Melia has a wonderful disposition and through it all, still has the desire to love and be loved. While initially shy..she comes around quickly with those who are kind and respectful. She loves to snuggle and show her devotion in so many ways. Melia enjoys her relationships with gentle dogs as well...it seems that she derives confidence from being around these positive-energy pups. Melia tries so hard to show that she's worthy of a permanent family. Her little tail wags hesitantly when she sees a possibility for a pat or any kind gesture. She would be overjoyed if she got loving attention and it would bring a light to those dark, expressive eyes! Farfel's is searching for that special family for this exceptional Schnauzer/Poodle mix..or Schnoodle (at least that's what the shelter vets tell us Melia is..all we know is that she's so adorable!). Melia is about to get her first grooming day..there won't be a more beautiful girl when she's provided with skin/hair care and great nutrition. Her silky silver hair will frame the kind glow in her eyes that speak of a gentle soul. We're searching for a very kind family that wants to spend quality time with this adorable girl. Melia would learn from the gentle guidance and time put in by people who love her and she'll return that devotion a million times over. Farfel's feels that Melia would enjoy retirees or a family with older, dog-crazy children who will be gentle and loving toward the this sweet pup. A positive reinforcement group training class would also be great for bonding between Melia and her people. It's a new world for this sensitive puppy and she'll be so successful with the knowledge that she is loved and chosen to be a member of a very special family. Melia appears to be a non-shedding dog and will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition to bring out the beauty and excellent health of her cottony-soft coat. Melia will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 4/29/16. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If you're interested in this sweet and very loving companion, please fill out and return to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-27-00055Paxton (male)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Paxton would be such a perfect companion for anyone who is searching for that loyal and loving lap puppy. At just 10 - 12 months old and 12 lbs, Paxton is so portable that he can be a full-time best friend accompanying his guardians everywhere a small and wonderful dog is allowed. It's always amazing to us at Farfel's Rescue that these dogs with great temperaments, as well as so very beautiful, end up in scary shelter situations. Paxton was a last-minute save for us...he would have been euthanized in a dismal Texas shelter if kind TX rescuers hadn't recognized his great temperament and step up to save his precious life. But how could they ... (Read More)not have? This little dog is just so awesome with his whole life lying in front of him...a life in which he can bring so much joy to a special family. Paxton, still just a puppy, is a blank slate waiting to learn about the world. With loving guidance and positive reinforcement obedience classes, Paxton can become an exceptionally well-behaved and very bonded companion. He is an all-time snuggler and will cuddle his way into any heart! Paxton may be a bit shy initially as transport and rehoming is challenging for any dog...but with love and nurturing, he will absolutely shine. We envision Paxton with either active retirees...he would be overjoyed with the time and fun he could have. Or a dog-crazy family with very gentle older kids (no tail pulling or awkward handling please) would be great for this very sweet pup. It's not that Paxton is a needy guy...he just loves the company of his humans who respect him for all his wonderful traits. For those family members who enjoy walks and time outside in the beautiful Colorado scenery, Paxton would love nothing more than to share the experience. He is always up for a walk (practice on a leash would be great for this puppy)..fascinated by the activity around him. He breathes in the air...so happy to be free of the dismal shelter environment. Then, maybe his favorite part...it's time to end the day with hugs, belly rubs and a warm spot on the bed beside his favorite people. Paxton appears to be a non-shedding, scruffy Benji-type guy (Schnauzer/Cairn Terrier mix..or so we're told by Texas vets) and will therefore require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his coat shining, so soft and healthy.. and matt-free. Unfortunately, we have only received a poor photo of a very frightened and shelter-dirty Paxton. We'll update as soon as possible with a photo from Paxton's foster mom that shows his true beauty - he has the softest and most expressive eyes ever! Paxton will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 4/29/16. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If you're interested in this sweet and very loving companion, please fill out and return to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-26-00202Bubba (male)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Bubba is a 1.5 year old, 13lb, terrier/schnauzer mix. Bubba aka Bubbalicious, was dumped at a shelter in TX with six other small dogs. It was clear that they had been taken care of and loved at some point. The woman who brought them to the shelter said she was getting older and just could not care for them anymore. The scary shelter and abandonment did not get Bubba's spirits down at all. He is such a happy, spunky little guy! He is now in foster here in CO and here is what his foster Momma has to say about him: 'Bubba is a little crazy (IN A GOOD WAY). He LOVES attention and has lots of energy, he is still very much a puppy at ... (Read More)heart. He will get sad if you leave him and wants more than anything to be someones shadow. He is what we like to call a velcro dog. He does bark at new noises and I am sure he believes he is protecting us :). Everything right now is very new to him so he is still getting used to his new environment. He loves to chase squirrels in the back yard and thinks it is such a fun game. He will stand on his back legs and dance around when he wants a treat, it is one of the cutest thing I have ever seen one of my foster dogs do. He LOVES to snuggle and when I am napping likes to jump on my bed and nap right there with me. Bubba is one of the kindest, most special dogs I have ever fostered and he will make anybody extremely happy' Bubba is the perfect size to hike to CO mountains with his family. His long legs allow him to spring onto rocks and he has great endurance. He is also small enough that he can be carried when need be. Bubba would do great with another dog or kids. He just loves to be loved and have people pay attention to him. He is also potty trained and is a low shedding little guy. If you are interested in adopting Bubba, please email us for an application at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-19-00009Blazer (male)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Blazer is a 3MO, 10lb terrier/schnauzer mix pup. Blazer was dumped at the shelter because he was a gift from a friend, but the woman never actually wanted him. Poor Blazer had a rough start to life through no fault of his own! He was so scared and sad at the overcrowded shelter, so our rescue stepped up to bring him in and find him a forever family. Here is what Blazers foster mom has to say about him: 'Blazer is a spunky little fella with legs that go on forever!!! It is such great fun to watch him run and play. He lops around and is a bit clumsy at times. He is such a sweet boy. He loves to play and is learning how to fetch. He ... (Read More)absolutely adores his foster brothers, especially Sherman, my little 7 pound Chihuahua. He sleeps throughout the night and takes quite a few naps during the day. He loves to sleep in the bed or on the couch with me. His appetite is excellent as well. He eats dry kibble approximately 3 times a day. We are still working on potty training, but he is so smart and is actually learning incredibly quickly! He is a big fan of peanut butter and has also been introduced to raw carrots and seems to enjoy those as well. Blazer has a little trouble hearing, but the vet said it is not bad and should not hold him back at all' We believe that Blazer will be such an amazing little guy and will fit in well with any family! He is such an easy going boy and so happy and fun we believe that he would be great with kids, dogs, other animals, and all people. If you are interested in adopting Blazer, please email us for an application at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-04-13-00138Koda and Kyloh (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see adorable young puppies. Koda and Kyloh are the kind of puppies that snuggle in, love you up and then put their heads on your shoulder. They're so sweet and social with every possibility open to them. That's the case unless a puppy is in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space or living in the shadows on a scary city street. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great rescuers and fosters in Tijuana, Mexico for saving Koda and Kyloh from abuse and certain euthanasia. She could see that their temperaments were so sweet and their needs so great that she couldn't turn her back ... (Read More)on these very special pups who have their whole life lying in front of them. Koda and Kyloh were immediately brought to be vetted, spayed/neutered, given the appropriate vaccinations, granted health certificates and brought to a dog-loving foster to begin their education as cherished house dogs. When we think of rescue, our thoughts don't usually go onto the tough streets of Tijuana. But these forgotten dogs deserve our help every bit as much as their US counterparts. They all have been used for opportunistic purposes...to either breed and discard or to sell as a puppy to a Mexican mill or rich tourists. Virtually all of them have lived on the streets and survived by learning to be social. They love people because compassionate tourists were their means of survival. They can sit in any language and fit quietly into any scene to earn a treat or discarded meal. This was the life waiting for Koda and Kyloh. From birth they cared for each other..the other pup's welfare always being first priority. We believe that it was this supportive and very loving relationship that got Koda and Kyloh through their challenges on the streets. It is for this reason that we'll only consider adopting these beautiful puppies out as a bonded pair. They're truly a case of two is easier than one..they entertain, play with and calm each other. Of course, first choice will always be a loving lap or a belly rub from their favorite person. Koda (apricot Poodle female) and Kyloh (silver/black Schnauzer/Poodle male) are just about 8 months old and 15 lbs. This is such a perfect size to be able accompany their family just about anywhere and fit right in due to their great temperaments and very positive outlooks on life. While initially shy..these amazing puppies come around when they sense love and nurturing. Koda and Kyloh are already starting to understand that sweet, cuddly and cooperative behavior makes great things happen in life. They were two of the extremely lucky young pups to master their socialization skills at a very early age and endear themselves to the US rescuers. There was no way this twosome was going to be left behind! We all have a clear picture of these very sweet and fun-loving pups in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes them for life. We would like to see Koda and Kyloh in a home that includes them in family time and activities (and some lap-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take very smart puppies like Koda and Kyloh and molds them into great family members that can behave appropriately in any situation. Koda and Kyloh would also be wonderful companions for active retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with truly adorable young pups. Koda and Kyloh would enjoy other gentle dogs to play with... they're so sweet and gentle as they put positive energy into enjoying the day with a friend. Koda and Kyloh, as non-shedders, will require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (an additional salmon oil supplement would be perfect) to keep their very beautiful coats healthy and matt-free. Koda and Kyloh are being fostered in Boulder. Applications are currently being accepted for our sweet, silly and very endearing puppies with the beautiful faces and dark, expressive eyes. If interested in these fun and entertaining best friends, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730. (Less)

    We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable young dog. Romeo is the kind of pup who snuggles in, loves you up and then puts his head on your shoulder.

We all have a clear picture of this very sweet and fun-loving guy in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes him for life. As Romeo becomes comfortable in his home, he will become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier his family is with his behavior, the more he will shine with his accomplishments. We would like to see Romeo in a home that includes him in family time and activities (and some lap-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart dog like Romeo and molds them into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation. Romeo would also be a wonderful companion for active retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Romeo would enjoy another gentle dog to play with...he's so sweet and gentle as he puts his positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend. Romeo was identified as a Schnauzer (because of his incredibly cute flyaway ears)/ Dachshund mix (his body has that adorable Doxy look) by his Tijuana rescuer. When we got Romeo to the town vet, he agreed that Romeo was the cutest Schnauzer/Doxy mix he had ever seen. We all know that this is difficult to determine with certainty, but Romeo is definitely an adorable and engaging guy no matter what his breed mix may be. Romeo has the shiniest, cotton-soft coat. He will therefore require a commitment to periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep his stunning coat healthy and shiny. Romeo will be arriving on transport in the Denver area on 3/23/16. Applications are currently being accepted for our sweet pup with the dark, expressive eyes. If interested in this adorable ...and very fun and entertaining companion, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com. (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.

lnteresting Schnauzer Trivia Low-Cost Colorado Spay & Neuter Clinics
    The name Schnauzer is derived from the German word for snout; these dogs are named for their distinctive beards. Schnauzers have been used to guard children and have been called Kinder Watchers.
