Sage's Story...
Sage was rescued from euthanasia at a very tough Houston shelter at the very last second. The amazing Houston rescuers, who have such an overwhelming job, saw Sage's incredible temperament and striking beauty and chose him to be transported to a forever home in Colorado. Unfortunately, this matted shelter photo is all that was available...we'll have a follow-up of a groomed and fluffy pup in the near future. Sage is close to a year old and approximately 14 pounds of cotton-coat fluffiness..Sage is currently a sad mass of hair - he will be shaved to allow his gorgeous coat to grow in healthy and silky. We got the following foster report on this sweet and kind guy:

Sage has beautiful soft white fur and a sweet disposition. He loves to be held and cuddled and will gently lick your hand and face. He is house trained, doesn't bark much at all, sleeps through the night, and doesn't chew household items. He rides nicely in a car and is very content in a crate, in which he stays at night and when we are away from the house. He walks pretty well on a leash once you get going. We've been feeding him Natural Balance dry dog food mixed with high-quality canned food (and I must admit occasional cheese and fruits/veggies mixed in) , and he eats it very well.
It's so strange but we didn't even notice when we picked Sage up at the vet that he's missing an eye. He does so well and his hair covers his eyes..so we were unaware. As we've lived with him, we tend to forget also since his other eye has taken over the job of both and he seems to see so well. The vet was unable to determine how this loss occurred. The only difference at all is that I generally approach him with an outstretched hand so as not to cause him to startle.
We have two large male dogs, and Sage gets along great with them. He isn't overly interested in playing and pretty much ignores them most of the time...but we're noticing a greater interest in play as Sage spends more time with us and grows more comfortable. Sage is also very comfortable with our two year old grandson..that's a very special quality in a dog!
Overall, Sage is a happy, easy going, lower energy young dog that will make a very nice addition to a family. He's extremely sweet and kind with no aggression or bad or annoying habits. We're truly enjoying our time with him.
We'd like to see Sage in a home with retirees or families that spend lots of time at home or enjoy taking a fuzzy companion along. He would be overjoyed with the time spent and the joy of positive attention.
Sage will be arriving on transport in Denver on 3/27. Applications are currently being accepted for this beautiful and sweet family companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Sage, a Boulder Norfolk Terrier/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Norfolk Terrier/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Norfolk Terrier/Poodle (Miniature) dog from a breeder in Boulder.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boulder already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Boulder breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Norfolk Terrier/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Norfolk Terrier/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
