found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, purebred, 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 Kimmy...just about 12 - 18 months old and a tiny 4 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. Kimmy 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. Kimmy 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 Kimmy! 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.
Kimmy's photos are of her safely in a Tijuana foster home after her rescue from the streets. We're so grateful to all the wonderful Mexican people who participated with so much love in Kimmy's rescue.
As Kimmy 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 Kimmy 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 dog like Kimmy and teaches them the skills to fit into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation.
Kimmy would also be a wonderful companion for retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Kimmy would enjoy another gentle dog to play with (getting adopted to a home she shares with her sister Chloe would be perfect)...Kimmy so sweet and gentle as she puts her positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend.
Kimmy was identified as a purebred teacup Yorkie by her Tijuana rescuer. This is difficult to determine with certainty, but we can clearly see a stunning Yorkie in this very wonderful dog.
Kimmy is a non-shedding girl with the cottony-soft hair and amazing markings of the Yorkie breed. She will require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep her hair shiny, healthy and matt-free.
Kimmy is arriving on transport in Boulder in late June. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 303-443-7730.
