Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) Mix Dog for adoption in Boulder, Colorado - Penny-ADOPTION PENDING

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.

We got a very concerned email from Texas about sweet Penny ...the shelter was set on finding a home for this very beautiful Poodle/Havanese mix (with the most amazing eyes that speak of great wisdom). It's very unusual to find a chocolate Poodle/Havanese mix in rescue...generally this mix in this stunning color is so desirable that they're scooped up prior to being turned into a high-kill shelter. We've no doubt that Penny would have had a life as a breeder if she hadn't been recognized for her great temperament and rescued from life in a cage.

Penny was brought to the attention of rescuers..they enjoyed her engaging personality (a wagging tail and a hug are Penny's style), her sweetness and devoted companionship . But as stunning as Penny is on the outside, it just doesn't compare with the love and good-will that flows from the heart of this beautiful girl.

Penny aced her temperament testing (she passed with flying colors) and got a perfect on her vetting assessment. she went to her New Mexico foster be reminded of respectful house skills and to wait for her transport to Denver and a brand new life. Since Penny received an A for sweetness, cuddling and general positive behavior, she's ready to be a devoted family member. We envision Penny in a home either with older and very gentle children who can cuddle and love her with a light touch. She'd also be a natural in a home with retirees who will shower time and attention on this devoted and engaging girl.

Penny has a stunning chocolate-colored coat with the most beautiful streaks running through it. As a Poodle/Havanese mix, Penny is a non-shedder and considered to be one of the most hypoallergenic breed mixes available today. She will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep her coat cottony-soft and matt-free.

We would never want Penny in a situation where she's alone for many hours. Instead we would love for her to be taken along on walks, adventures and visits with dog-loving friends. She's almost impossible not to fall in love with...her manner speaks of softness and light. Penny also travels like a champ - she loves nothing more than coming along on errands, socializing visits and any adventure that keeps her together with those she loves. She would also be a natural to come along on vacations or getaways (and is a perfect companion and lap dog at approximately 3.5 years old and 9 easy to scoop up and take along. Penny is so pleasant with everyone that she attracts admirers everywhere she goes. But it will definitely be the special lap and familiar touch that will draw Penny back to her family every time...she's a one-family girl!

Penny is being fostered in Denver. Farfel's is currently accepting applications and setting up Meet and Greets for our sweet girl. If interested in this snuggly and loyal pup who desperately wants to be a best friend, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Penny-ADOPTION PENDING, a Boulder Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Havanese/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 Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) breeders who help with Havanese/Poodle (Miniature) rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
