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 Coffee...just 18 - 24 months old and a tiny 7 lbs. This is such a perfect size to be able to accompany her family just about anywhere and then fit perfectly onto a loving lap. Coffee will always fit right in due to her great temperament. She is already starting to understand that sweet, cuddly and cooperative behavior makes great things happen in life. Coffee was one of the extremely lucky very young dogs to show great promise in her socialization skills at a very early age. The US rescuers couldn't help but fall in love with Coffee! We all had a clear picture of this very sweet and fun-loving girl in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes her for life.
As Coffee becomes comfortable in her home, she will become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with her behavior, the more she will shine with her accomplishments.
We would like to see Coffee in a home that includes her in family time and activities (and of course some lap or couch-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart puppy like Coffee and teaches them the skills to fit into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation.
Coffee 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. Coffee would enjoy another gentle dog to play with...she's so sweet and gentle as she puts her positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend.
Coffee was identified as a Cavalier/Spaniel mix by her Tijuana rescuer. This is difficult to determine with certainty, but we can see these adorable and engaging breeds in this very sweet dog.
Coffee appears to be a lightly-shedding girl with the most striking golden and chestnut streaks running through her hair. Coffee will require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep her hair cottony-soft, healthy and matt-free.
Coffee is arriving on transport in Boulder in mid-May. Applications are currently being accepted for our very sweet girl with the dark, expressive eyes. If interested in this adorable ...and often very fun and entertaining best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to email@example.com or fax to 303-443-7730.
