Rescue Me ID: 15-05-18-00438Princeton (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 

    What a happy and carefree Doodle Princeton is (with a bit of Terrier in there perhaps?) At 18 - 24 months old and currently about 40 lbs (he can still stand to gain weight with his appropriate weight ending up at about 48 lbs), Princeton is a very friendly and engaging guy! He came into a rural Georgia shelter emaciated (weighing just 32 lbs)...clearly having been deprived of food for quite a while. It is for this reason that Princeton takes his food/chews very seriously. He would never hurt the other dogs who represent a threat to his food but will be defensive and be clear that it belongs to him. Princeton will blossom in a home with ... (Read More)the time and desire to teach him behavior with positive guidelines, let him know that food will always be available and teach him what life is like in a safe and secure home. Princeton must also complete his housetraining skills. He is old enough and so smart that we have no doubt that he will learn quickly if given a consistent message. This will involve limiting freedom in the home, taking him out frequently and treat rewards when he's successful. We've never met a medium-sized, young dog who can't master these skills if his guardian creates proper boundaries. Princeton is extremely puppy-like and very, very friendly and engaging. He loves with all his heart and that includes his people and other fun and playful dogs. Everyone Princeton meets has the potential to be a future friend or playmate. Princeton is so warm and friendly that he always hopes every pat and kind word will turn into a lifelong friend. Both humans and other dogs are drawn to Princeton for his positive attitude and kind ways - no human friend can keep from petting Princeton's scruffy, Benji-like coat. It is this love of life that motivated a rural Georgia shelter to put Princeton through Heartworm treatments..his precious life deserved to be saved! Princeton had tested low HW+ and the compassionate shelter workers decided to save this very sweet boy. The heart worm treatment process involves several shots followed by a 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. Princeton has just completed this treatment and will require several weeks of mellow time to insure his lifelong health. We are seeking an adopter to lovingly care for Princeton through this period of quiet. It's quite an easy rehab process as it only entails mellow time with soft words and belly rubs..although Princeton is a playful, fun-loving guy so a crate may periodically have to be used.. All vet bills will be paid and Farfel's will provide premium food and treats for this special boy as he is promised a healthy future. Other dogs seem to really enjoy Princeton's playfulness that is never aggressive...only fun-loving and active. It's very typical for a Doodle to be a great and devoted companion - they're known for their sweet and kind ways. Princeton would fit well into a family with dog-loving and gentle kids as well as dogs. He would benefit from positive reinforcement obedience classes that included the whole family - Princeton is a super-smart guy who truly wants to please and great training will give him the skills to be an excellent adult companion. These type of classes will also bring out the great qualities of this Doodle mix as well as creating a tightly-knit bonding with all family members. Princeton is a non-shedding pup (or very lightly shedding..we can't tell for certain until he loses his more-brittle shelter coat) and will therefore require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his shining coat healthy and matt-free. Princeton will be transported to Denver in early June. If interested in this sweet guy who is full of love and personality, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com. (Less)

Animal ID: 12603Reba (female)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Puppy

Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    This very nice young dog should do well in any home. She appears to be house-trained and seems to like every one she meets. Reba is very interested in cats when she meets them so she could possibly chase a cat. She is being fostered out of the shelter so if you would like to meet her, give us a call so we can make plans for a rendevouz.

Rescue Me ID: 15-04-06-00671Tori-ADOPTION PENDING (female)

Golden Retriever Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed 

    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 is dismal and quickly runs out of space. This is the situation that Tori was put into at 16 weeks old. It's not unusual to see opportunistic breeding with Golden/Labs ...and if all doesn't go perfectly...out they go into the street or to a high-kill shelter. Such was the case with Tori. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great Texas rescuer in saving Tori...she could see that her temperament was so loving and sweet that she couldn't allow her ... (Read More)to be euthanized. Tori was immediately brought to be vetted and temperament tested - she was pronounced a healthy puppy with a very sweet and lovable personality. It turns out that Tori, at only 4 months old, is so wonderful and cooperative that it's been a fun and rewarding experience for her foster mom. She reported to us that Tori is absolutely a lovebug and very social and well-adjusted in every way. She described her personality as typically Golden...sweet and so lovable while being active and playful in a very positive way. She describes Tori as a just about perfect family companion that's perfect for Colorado. She will be overjoyed with hiking and loving the outdoors with her favorite people. Like most Goldens, Tori is extremely loyal and very in love with those who are kind and and loving to her. She's like a blank slate...open and curious about everything around her. If Tori continues to be properly socialized, she will become a well-adjusted and devoted adult companion. If she is treated kindly with clear behavioral guidelines, she will become a well-behaved dog who respects her people as her leaders. This is the kind of family we're searching for for Tori since she will be approximately 40 - 45 lbs when full-grown, we also feel it's very important that Tori is provided with exercise and mental stimulation. She will be a perfect size to enjoy an active lifestyle playing and snowshoeing (she'd love that) in the Colorado mountains. We'd also be thrilled with a family who spends lots of time at home and chooses to include a fuzzy companion in their activities. Tori is arriving on transport in Denver in early to mid-April.. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If you're interested in this sweet and cuddly pup who is so much fun, 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.

Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current

That's the case unless they're in a high-kill shelter that is dismal and quickly runs out of space. This is the situation that Tessa was put into at 16 weeks old. It's not unusual to see opportunistic breeding with Golden/Labs ...and if all doesn't go perfectly...out they go into the street or to a high-kill shelter. Such was the case with Tessa.

We'd also be thrilled with a family who spends lots of time at home and chooses to include a fuzzy companion in their activities. We've requested that Tessa be spayed prior to her transport to Colorado. The Texas vets feel that 16 weeks is awfully young for fixing. If Tessa comes in unsprayed, Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for her spay and microchip if our Denver vet is used. Tessa is arriving on transport in Denver in early to mid-April..

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.
