found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Mango's story is all too common in her extremely close call to being euthanized in a scary Texas shelter....but who could ignore her adorable manner and desire to bond with anyone who would be her best friend? Mango, while she may be initially shy after her shelter stay...her engaging and adorable nature is just waiting to be enjoyed and appreciated. Her outgoing and social temperament lead her to ultimately become a friend with almost everyone she meets. She is such a wonderful being...we think she represents the best qualities of the Poodle and Pekinese breeds.
Mango is in the process of leaving behind the neglect and lack of love that made up her early life. At about 18 - 24 months old and 9 lbs, Mango is a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with her behavior, the more she shines with her accomplishments. We would love to see Mango in a home that includes her in family time and activities...she's very social and would thrive in a family that truly loves her and considers her a very important family member. Bella would also be a wonderful companion for retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Bella would also do great in a family with gentle, dog-loving children who are old enough to understand that a 9-lb dog needs to be handled with care and love. Mango doesn't require another dog to be happy...but does enjoy her canine relationships with kind and gentle dogs.
Mango's Houston rescuer had the following to say about sweet and lovable Mango:
I'm the luckiest foster in Houston to have the short-term friendship of Mango! She's amazing...sweet and kind! I brought her around 3 other small dogs today and she was absolutely fine. In true Mango form - she was great and appropriate. Not an ounce of aggression or ill-will anywhere in this girl. I definitely think she would be a gift to any family including older kids...they just must understand her small size and to never be rough with her.
I can't say for certain but Mango may initially be timid...but not to worry - she comes around to be the ultimate snuggler. Mango would be perfect for someone who wants a true best friend...and is a great size and temperament to be able to go anywhere. Mango loves me so much that she's happy to be with me at all times and is definitely my little cuddle bug.
In conclusion...Mango's temperament is wonderful and I would absolutely adopt her in a second but she's scheduled for her freedom ride to Colorado. I think Mango will be overjoyed with the dog-loving families that always provide great homes for our Houston dogs.
Mango will do well with anyone who's invested in spending time with their pup. She's so pleasant and portable that she can be a part of any adventure....it can be a leisurely walk, a visit with friends (with or without their dogs), a car ride on vacation or just an afternoon spending time together plopped down on the couch - all of this would speak to Mango's social yet gentle temperament and extremely loving ways.
Mango appears to be a non-shedding (or very lightly shedding pup..it's difficult to tell until she grows out her sad shelter coat). Mango will therefore require periodic grooming and great nutrition (with a salmon oil supplement) to keep her coat healthy and cottony-soft.
Mango will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 4/14/17. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/.
