Australian Shepherd/Border Collie Mix Puppy for adoption in Boulder, Colorado - Blue-ADOPTION PENDING

I found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.


I am up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

There's nothing quite like young energy and silliness...and then they lie quietly on your shoulder breathing their warm doggie breath. Puppies are so pure and vulnerable that it's unbearable to think that they're homeless in rural Texas. A kind rescuer temporarily took Blue in to prevent her from the horrors of a high-kill Texas shelter...and realized that Blue wasn't allowed to stay. Off Blue went again to what this rescuer thought was the only possibility in this area...the shelter. This woman, recognizing the wonderful and very sweet temperament of the puppy she had just relinquished, contacted the shelter. Farfel's was then contacted and told about the great personality and over- the- top cuteness of this special girl and made the decision to help Blue find her first ever forever family. She deserves a great home and loving guardian just as much as any other sweet pup with a great temperament.

Blue, at just about 13 weeks old and 3 lbs (anticipated to be approximately 15 - 18 lbs when full-grown), was facing the possible end of her life just as it was beginning. ...she was rescued just in the nick of time. This sweet and engaging Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix...with a bit of something else in there that gives Blue her smaller size.. is an up and coming breed mix that's loved for it's super-soft coat, amazing intelligence and engaging personalities. Blue is starting out with great energy...the excellent results of her temperament-testing ended with a transport ticket to Colorado and a new life.

We're hoping for a post-shelter photo of this beautiful puppy. Her current photo shows a frightened and shelter-dirty dog. We'll update just as soon as we receive a photo of Blue..washed, happy and fluffy.. in her foster home.

Blue is appropriately playful and inquisitive for her young age. She's bright and so loving (loves to cuddle in your lap-but watch out..young dog energy may call). Blue clearly has no memory of her scary very early life. Since Blue is such a young girl, she's a blank slate just waiting for a kind and patient human to show her the way. She has all the potential in the world to be an awesome companion. Blue will form firm bonds with her family (as well as other dogs and humans) and learn positive socialization skills through exposure to many different situations out in the world including puppy kindergarten and positive reinforcement group Obedience Classes. It does take a bit of time and commitment...yet pays off a thousand times over when you have a dog that can accompany you in the outside world with appropriate behavior.

We're very open to Blue finding her forever home with an active retired couple or individual with lots of energy to train and enjoy a young dog. Blue is known to do well with children (but has never been formally temperament tested) and other dogs are very fun for this playful puppy.

Blue will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 312/16. If interested in this beautiful, fun and very sweet companion, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Blue-ADOPTION PENDING, a Boulder Australian Shepherd/Border Collie puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Australian Shepherd/Border Collie puppy 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 Australian Shepherd/Border Collie breeders who help with Australian Shepherd/Border Collie rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
