found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
When we think of rescue, our thoughts don't usually go onto the tough streets of Tijuana. But these forgotten dogs deserve our help every bit as much as their US counterparts. They all have been used for opportunistic purposes...to either breed and discard or to sell as a puppy to a Mexican mill or rich tourists. Virtually all of them have lived on the streets and survived by learning to be social. They love people because compassionate tourists were their means of survival. They can sit in any language and fit quietly into any scene to earn a treat or discarded meal.
This was the life waiting for Charlie…approximately 4 years old and about 10 lbs. This is such a perfect size to be able accompany his family just about anywhere and fit right in due to his great temperament. Charlie is already starting to understand that sweet, cuddly and cooperative behavior makes great things happen in life. Charlie was one of the extremely lucky young dogs to master his socialization skills at a very early age and endear himself to the US rescuers. There was no way Charlie was going to be left behind! We all had a clear picture of this very sweet and fun-loving puppy in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes him for life.
As Charlie becomes comfortable in his home, he will become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with his behavior, the more he will shine with his accomplishments.
We would like to see Charlie in a home that includes him in family time and activities (and some lap-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart dog like Charlie and molds them into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation.
Charlie would also be a wonderful companion for active retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Charlie would enjoy another gentle dog to play with...he's so sweet and gentle as he puts his positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend.
Charlie was identified as a Havanese by his Tijuana rescuer. This is difficult to determine with certainty. We are in agreement that he resembles the Havanese ...but this mix of multiple teddy-bear type breeds is difficult to distinguish from other similar mixes.
Charlie is a shed-free dog (often excellent for those with allergy challenges) and will therefore require periodic grooming and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep his cotton-soft hair healthy and matt-free.
Charlie is arriving on transport in Boulder in mid November. Applications are currently being accepted for our sweet puppy with the dark, expressive eyes. If interested in this adorable ...and often very fun and entertaining companion, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
