Rescue Me ID: 15-07-29-00075Millie (female)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Millie is one of those dogs that got caught in an overcrowded and dreary high-kill shelter through no fault of her own. It's so difficult for any particular dog to stand out and get the acknowledgement for a great temperament (and being so very beautiful with a shining black coat with a strip of white that make Millie look so dignified.) and therefore get spared from euthanasia. As you might imagine...Millie must have been SO very special. She was recognized for the exceptional dog she is and efforts were put forth to insure her safety and ultimate adoption. Millie would be a dream come true for anyone who enjoys the dignified personality ... (Read More)of the Flat Coated Retriever combined with the very sweet and playful personality of the Golden. Millie's foster mom had the following to say about this gorgeous girl: Millie is a calm yet playful girl who really doesn't have any negative traits that stand out! She's a lovebug who wants nothing more than to warm the couch when she lies next to me in the evening. She's so devoted and SO sweet! She's just about perfect in the house and has been trustworthy in virtually every situation. She's absolutely great with me, my husband, our 3 kids (from 12 - 15 years old) and our 2 dogs. Millie is, hands down, just about the most perfect and loving dog I've ever fostered. Her lucky new family is getting a true gem! Farfel's Rescue was contacted to help find this wonderful girl the greatest home possible..she absolutely deserves the love and respect of a forever family. Millie is an exceptional doll baby (words of his foster mom) that is 17 months old and 40 lbs. She's such a great age...old enough to be beyond the young puppy behavior that can be so challenging yet young enough to have many, many active years ahead. Also, at 40 lbs..Millie is the perfect size to walk (or hike) the Colorado mountains. We envision this super-loving pup either in an adult household who choose to spend lots of time with a fuzzy best friend. Or Millie would be overjoyed with the company of gentle kids and dogs. She would be so excited with the playtime and then at day's end, would be the greatest snuggler ever. Millie is so good-natured and respectful that she would be a great companion to be out and about with. Millie has been in a foster home in Texas while waiting for her transport to Denver (her great behavior and sweet nature earned her this ticket). She has been working on her home and socialization skills and we're so proud of her progress. Millie is a lightly shedding pup who will require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep her stunning retriever coat healthy and cottony-soft. Millie will be arriving on transport in Denver on Friday morning 8/1/15. If you're interested in this sweet, endearing and often entertaiing pup, please fill out and return to farfelsapps@gmail.com or mail a hard copy to Farfel's Farm 906 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302.

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-22-00421Farley (male)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    The Golden Retriever/German Shepherd mix is a perfect combo for those who are searching for an extremely sweet and loyal family dog. Of utmost importance...both breeds are famous for their temperaments, intelligence and loving ways. Since this breed mix requires exercise and love being with their people...if a hike or outdoor fun is the order of the day - count them in! These mixes are known to run joyfully and energetically through the Colorado mountains...and then crash on the couch snuggling close to their favorite humans. Farley's current foster had the following to say about this loyal and devoted dog: Farley is so funny and ... (Read More)chock-full of character. His silly antics make us laugh. He sleeps in funny positions that we call doggie yoga. He is so happy in the mornings, wagging his tail, ready for his breakfast and morning walk/play/training time. He waits politely for his dinner and will only eat after the Okay signal. He is so smart and is a good problem solver! He learned how to open doors (look out stuffed animals!!) But after a few corrections he stopped! :) He waits politely at doors when coming inside and out. He knows obedience commands like sit, down, shake, lay, and roll over. We are working on stay and come while distracted. In addition we have been working on impulse control with leave it and look games. He is doing really well with drop it and leave it too. We can put a piece of cheese on his paw and say wait and he will wait until you give him the okay signal. He plays fetch indoors perfectly, but gets distracted outside. Farley walks on a leash with a gentle leader very well. He initially had a hard time (understandably) with barking dogs behind their fences, so now when we walk past some rude dogs he will not bark or lunge, but look to me for treats, and stay focused on me. I am very proud of him for the improvement he has made in this area. He loves his blanket and carries it with him from room to room. He does not like his crate, but does well in his indoor/outdoor kennel and dog run. He is not afraid of construction noise, thunder, or fireworks. He is happiest being near his adult people. Farley is a wonderful being who is still just a puppy at about 10 months old and 65 lbs (expected to be full-grown at about 68 - 70 lbs. As such, he could be so successful with a savvy dog-person who has the time and energy to work with Farley to bring out his wonderful traits. His foster has come such a long way with Farley...we'd like to see his training continued to bring out his full potential. In his puppyish style, Farley can be mouthy when he perceives its playtime. He can be diverted by someone who wants to put effort in...some treats and commands and he's learned to self-correct. Farley, like most puppies, is a blank slate that requires kind input and leadership to understand how to make his way in the world. . He seems to be leaving behind the lack of love and commitment that made up his early life and is ready to love and learn proper behavior. His time spent in a high-kill shelter with -Euthanasia Pending- on his cage didn't deprive Farley of his hope that someday a special family would choose him. He was being put to sleep because he had baby dermatitis due to fleas and filth...but in the end, he prevailed...and through the repeated efforts of Texas rescuers, Farley earned his ticket to Colorado. Since leaving the shelter, Farley has become a very huggable ball of shining fur with downy hair replacing the bald spots he used to have. We would like to see Farley in a home that has him involved in training and activities...he will thrive in an adult environment that truly loves him and considers him a very important part of the family. Farley would be an exceptional companion for savvy retirees who know the nature of dogs, enjoy training and have the time to bring out the best qualities of this pup with so much potential. Farley would be so happy with a job...it would speak to his working dog side that feels so proud when he's accomplished a hard day's work. Long hikes and backyard fun would also truly speak to his nature. Farley is being fostered in Denver. Meet and Greets are being set up and applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If you're interested in this happy and fun-loving companion, 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: 15-07-17-00403Olive (female)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    Olive was surrendered at a very young age for no reason other than his 'family' decided they did not want the responsibility of a puppy. Here is what Olives foster had to say about her: 'Olive is a very loveable puppy. She minds well and wants to please. She is crate and doggy door trained and has almost mastered potty training. This little girl loves other dogs and wants to play. She ignores cats, squirrels, etc. and needs a little work on leash training. Fully vetted. Olive would do wonderfully in a family with kids, or in a family that loves to explore the Colorado mountains. She is just such a friendly and loving dog, she deserves ... (Read More)to finally feel the love that she so truly deserves. Olive is very social and likes to meet new people and dogs! She rides well in the car and loves to get belly rubs!

Rescue Me ID: 15-07-16-00561Touska (male)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Adult

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

    Touska and his sister Edwina are waiting for someone to give them a place to live. In April their guardian passed away and they have been in boarding ever since. To go from the loving home they grew up in to boarding is not easy. They are starting to adjust but are confused as to why they can't go home. Its breaking our hearts. We do not have an open foster here in Colorado who will take in two large dogs so they will stay in Arkansas until a loving soul opens their home to them. They have been together since they were puppies and we will not separate them. They are both very gentle with children and we think they would love a big family. ... (Read More)Touska and Edwina love to give kisses and cuddle. They are both very smart dogs who are eager to please. They are house trained but will need a little while to adjust to a knew home. They previously lived on a ranch with 7 horses. Touska and Edwina are in great health and are ready to come to Colorado. If you think you can give them the forever home they deserve please contact us at sunshinecanyondr@gmail.com. Thanks! WE WILL NOT ADOPT THESE DOGS SEPARATELY! Thanks for understanding. (Less)

Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, my name is Hannah and I am a 2 year old Lab/Golden mix. I am a little nervous when I first meet people but I am very sweet and loving once I know you. I know my basic commands and some tricks and I love giving hugs and sitting in your lap. I do pull when on leash and could use some more work. But I am really smart and learn quickly and l do well on car rides also. I also know most of my commands like, sit, down and I give great hugs if you ask. I do well with other dogs and I can be around even small kids. I was in a foster home with younger children and did great. I really don't like being put in a kennel and I do great when left ... (Read More)alone so there really is no need. I am looking for a family that will love me and spend time with me because I am really people oriented. I would love a big back yard and a hiking or running partner because I am a high energy dog also.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Golden Retriever in Colorado
    Golden Retriever Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Golden Retriever is a gundog that loves the water. Originally bred for hunting, Goldens make wonderful family pets. Golden Retrievers are very sweet, patient, gentle, and excellent with children. Goldens are eager to please and respond very well to obedience training. Goldens make good watchdogs but are far too friendly with everyone, from strangers to other dogs, to be used as guard dogs. Goldens need human companionship. They can get into trouble if neglected. This breed is suitable for homes with yards, and needs plenty of brisk daily exercise.
