Rescue Me ID: 16-07-19-00031Lucy-Adoption Pending (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    It's hard to imagine this truly beautiful Schnauzer/Cairn Terrier mix (we're just guessing on her breed mix based on the Texas vet's guess.. whatever the mix..it's great!) in a high-kill shelter in Houston. A compassionate Farfel's rescuer saved Lucy's life and nursed her body and spirit back to joy and well-being. Lucy is such a sweet dog with a smile on her face all the time! She loves treats and belly rubs and is overjoyed to run and play outside. Lucy is a great hiker as well. She has exactly the appropriate amount of energy for an 18 - 24 month old, 13 lb healthy pup (perfect size and age for a family dog and beyond any babyish ways). ... (Read More) Lucy would do well with a family who spends lots of time at home. It's so much fun to take walks together, play and make visits to the park - she would love that! Lucy would also love to chill on the couch and snuggle and be petted. Lucy loves other dogs of all sizes but doesn't require their company to be happy. Lucy is starting out with great energy...the excellent results of her temperament testing ended with a transport ticket to Colorado and a new life. Lucy is so smart...very typical of the cross of a Schnauzer and Cairn Terrier. She's bright, cuddly and so loving...clearly having no memory of her scary start. She has all the potential in the world to be an awesome adult companion. Lucy will form firm bonds with her family (as well as other dogs and humans) and learn positive socialization skills through Puppy Socialization Class followed by 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 world with great behavior. Farfel's is currently accepting applications for this great companion. If interested in a new best friend and loyal companion, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-14-00750Polly-Adoption Pending (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    The Schnauzer/Poodle mixes are always a favorite among the many groups of mixed breed dogs. We all seem to love their fun, outgoing and snuggly nature. Polly appears to be a perfect combo within the Schnauzer breed. Her truly beautiful coat (charcoal black and honey brown..so gorgeous ) lights up her adorable face. Her dark eyes are so expressive that you understand the pain she's been through while seeing her optimism and love of life. Polly is obviously very special...she was found wandering sadly through a Houston neighborhood and a wonderful TX foster couldn't let her go..she brought her into her home to heal and to ready her for ... (Read More)a forever home. At just about 12 - 24 months old and 30 lbs (the perfect size for hiking and playing in the Colorado mountains), Polly shines with an engaging and sweet disposition. She is an active girl whose tail never stops wagging...yet calms down easily (particularly after a walk or hike) and can just hang out on the couch with the best of them. Polly was described by the shelter as: Sweet, Somewhat Shy, Calm yet quite Playful. She was very kind with shelter personnel as well as other dogs. Polly enjoys gentle and respectful older dog-crazy kids and would be an active participant in outdoor games in the yard or a walk to the park. She also enjoys the company of other dogs and would always enjoy a game or a shared walk. Somewhere along the line, we think that Polly was given love and respect..probably because she's so capable of returning warmth and kindness. Polly is great to take along anywhere there are groups of dog-loving people. She can be a bit shy initially but always warms up with sweetness and warm hugs. We feel that Polly would do well in any home that offered her love, time (long hours left alone at home wouldn't be in the best interest of this social and sensitive girl), appropriate exercise/ mental stimulation and positive reinforcement group training classes to make her the best dog she can possibly be. Polly has an amazing coat that will grow more beautiful and soft as cotton with great nutrition (salmon oil would be a great supplement) and periodic grooming. This regimen will keep Polly's hair healthy and matt-free. Polly's sad shelter coat (as shown in photo) may have to be shaved due to thick matts. It will grow in with the beautiful colors and cottony softness of a well taken care of coat. Polly's foster mom sent us this report on sweet Polly -- This incredibly beautiful (with a capital B) Schnoodle is sweet and wonderful. She can be quite playful..she's been passing the time playing chase and happily wrestling with my sister's dog who is gentle yet fun. She's very good with people... she likes to be next to me after we take our morning walk.. and just chill. Polly loves her hikes and walks, but still needs a bit more practice to walk calmly without pulling on the leash. Polly appears to have the idea about house-training but I would always anticipate some teaching on this each time a dog is rehomed. It's helpful if there's another dog in the home to show the way. We have 2 small to medium size dogs of our own that have hated all our previous fosters...but Polly is so agreeable that even our grumpy dogs are OK with her being with us. --My dear, sweet Polly...you're a great and brave girl and I wish you a place in the best home ever!-- Polly is being fostered in the Denver area. If interested in this very sweet, loving and active best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730.

Rescue Me ID: 16-07-10-00119Isaac (male)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Kids and Adults 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    It got scarily close to Isaac's euthanasia time in a dismal Texas shelter. It was definitely through no fault of his own..it's all a matter of space. He came in at a very crowded time (but then again..all times are very crowded) and was therefore given a very short window in which to be rescued. After a scramble by our very compassionate Texas rescuer (she has a soft spot for a really cute fuzzy guy with a great temperament!), Isaac was pulled out of the shelter at the last second possible. His rescuer, shelter workers and Isaac's foster haven't stopped raving about this adorable and engaging guy ever since. There was some indecision ... (Read More)about Isaac's breed mix...the shelter initially said Papillon, a town vet thought a Schnauzer with a bit of scruffy Terrier. We're simply not sure (but he definitely has the cutest mop-top we've ever seen) and would be a great addition to any family. Isaac, at 9 - 12 months old and 17 lbs is the perfect size to take along just about anywhere. He is such a perfect candidate to find his forever home in Colorado - he's a natural-born walker with the energy and enthusiasm to accompany his favorite person on any path. We envision Isaac with an active family with older, respectful kids or retirees who enjoy spending their time with a comical fuzzy guy He would be a very family-oriented pup if given the chance...adventures, vacations or just hanging out at home would speak to the nature of this guy. A fun time would be exploring dog-friendly spots or time spent socializing with gentle canines and their dog-loving families. At the end of the day...there would be nothing better for Isaac than to snuggle down with his family of humans and canines..he is unknown with cats. Isaac can be counted on to be a truly positive addition to any home. He is a low-maintenance guy whose joy at being part of a committed family would know no bounds. Isaac would shine in positive reinforcement group obedience classes since his desire to please is so strong...and it would create that special bond that exists between a trained, respectful dog and his people. After passing his temperament tests and vetting with flying colors, Isaac is in a foster home in Texas being reminded of his basic house skills. His foster family has described him as a lovebug and a sweetpea...can we possibly say more? They did say that Isaac may need a bit of time after his long transport to Denver to be his happy and very loving self. Isaac is in need of a sudsy bath and a great brushing'|. he will emerge with an amazing coat that over time will speak of cottony softness and good health. Isaac will require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep this lovely coat healthy, cottony-soft and matt-free. Isaac will be arriving on transport in Denver on Wednesday 7/13/16. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If you're interested in this extremely sweet, cuddly and fun-loving pup, please fill out and return to farfelsapps@gmail.com, fax to 303-443-7730 or mail a hard copy to Farfel's Farm 906 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302.

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-02-00391Belle (female)

Schnauzer Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Belle is a 1 year old, 21lb, Schnauzer/terrier mix. Belle was found on the streets of Houston, TX. When she was brought to the shelter she was so scared that she would not even walk. Because of this, she was immediately put on the pre-euth list because they thought she would not show well in the adoptions room. Our rescue knew that Belle just needed some TLC so we brought her here to CO to help her adjust and find a forever home. We were worried it would take months for Belle to come out of her shell and to start feeling comfortable in her foster home, but within days she sprouted into a happy little puppy and acts like a totally ... (Read More)different dog! Here is what the foster has to say about Belle: "Belle (who answers to Bella) came to me a terrified dog who hid in my closet for her first 24 hours - I lay next to her touching her gently trying to make her feel at ease. The next 24 hours she ventured out to meet me and decided to stay in my bathroom. On the third day she came out to explore the house and let me approach her without fear. After that, she warmed up to me quickly and followed me everywhere I went, wagging her tail. She took a little longer to warm up to my husband - his is very tall and a little intimidating but they are good friends now. I have 5 dogs of my own and she quickly learned from them how to play and go outside to potty. She walks fairly well on a leash but must be walked with a harness. She is an explorer and if a smell or animal catches her attention she will easily twist out of a collar. She sleeps through the night on her doggy bed in our bedroom. She is not trusting of strangers - she will bark at them initially, then just pick a corner (near you) to watch them from, after which she will slowly trust them - treats help. Belle will need a family that is patient and understanding, for her initial adjustment period - she is not a turn-key dog so please don't expect that from her. She will prove to be a faithful, extremely loving companion if shown the love and kindness that she needs. She went from being solitary and frightened to fun loving partner who gets so excited to see you come home her whole body shakes! She adores chasing balls and throwing around her toys, although she is really good at tearing them apart also. She has an affinity to shoe liners so be prepared - all shoes are fair game if left out! She would do well with another dog but it's not necessary. Cats are an unknown but we have no reason to believe she will not adapt to them." We are now searching for Belle's forever home.

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.

    The name Schnauzer is derived from the German word for snout; these dogs are named for their distinctive beards. Schnauzers used to travel with German coaches. Schnauzers were used as messenger dogs in World War I.
