We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable young puppy. Marley is the kind of pup who snuggles in, loves you up and then puts his tiny head on your shoulder. He's so new and fresh with every possibility open to him. That's the case unless they're in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great Texas rescuer in saving Marley (and his 4 siblings)...she could see that all their temperaments were so sweet and endearing that she couldn't allow any of them to be euthanized.

Marley was immediately brought to be vetted and then on to a great Houston foster home to receive pure love and begin his education. It turns out that Marley, (at 16 weeks old and about 8 lbs..anticipated to be approximately 15 lbs when full grown) is such a cuddle-bug...he's so sweet and endearing! Marley snuggles up and is a cuddly lap dog...and then watch out - puppy energy! Marley is so playful and so engaging that it's become a fun and rewarding experience for his foster mom.

Marley is cute as a button and very entertaining. He is like a blank slate...open and curious about everything around him. If Marley continues this regimen of socialization that promote positive relationships with other dogs and bonding with humans, he will become a well-adjusted and well-behaved adult companion.

Marley is a beautiful Italian Greyhound/Schnauzer mix puppy (we don't see the Schnauzer but we do know that his mom was a Schnauzer mix) with the blackest of black and a pure white chest. Due to fleas and extreme stress while on death row, Marley (and his siblings) have varying degrees of dermatitis which results in hair loss. This is easily remedied with great nutrition, no fleas and lots of love and gentle handling resulting in calm within the puppy.

Marley's calm yet silly demeanor is just who he is...he just appears to be more entertaining than your average puppy. If he is treated kindly with clear behavioral guidelines, Marley will become a well-adjusted guy who respects his people as his leaders. This is the kind of family we're searching for for this very sweet puppy. We also feel it's very important that he is provided with exercise and mental stimulation. Marley would be overjoyed with walks/hikes along Colorado paths and enjoying the sunshine.

We'd like a family who spends lots of time at home and chooses to include a fuzzy companion in their activities. Marley can be taught that the car is a fun place that leads to great adventures out in the community and can therefore accompany his family just about anywhere.

Marley may be arriving in Boulder unfixed due to his very young age. Farfel's requested that he be fixed prior to transport. If this isn't the case, Farfel's will be happy to cover all costs in regard to Marley's neuter and microchip.

Marley appears to be a non-shedder (or a very light shedder). Lots of sudsy baths and grooming combined with great nutrition (coconut oil is a great addition) will result in this puppy's coat becoming healthy and silky-soft.

Marley will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 8/19/16. If interested in this sweet and very devoted best friend who knows that real men wear pink, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730.

About Farfel's Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We own a pet boutique named Farfel's Farm on Pearl Street in Boulder, CO. We have had the good fortune to find our niche in the Boulder community and experience success. We felt it very important to "pay it forward" in gratitude for our good luck. We couldn't think of a better endeavor than to save dogs who were out of time in the southern states, yet had been identified with great temperaments. We dedicate our efforts to their good health and ultimate wonderful, permanent homes.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Pets are transported from the southern states approximately twice per month. Almost 100% of the time, the dogs are spoken for as a result of adoption applications that can be referenced under Adoption at farfelsrescue.com. We study the applications. If the app indicates there is a match, followed up by a home visit and reference checks, the process moves to the next step. The adopter is committing to a 2-week foster (of course the dog can be returned at any time prior), and can then choose to finalize the adoption.

Our Adoption Process...

All potential adoptions start out as a 2-week mandatory foster period. During that time, Farfel's covers all vet issues if one of Farfel's rescue vets is used. We also serve as a support with trainers and behaviorists on board for questions. An Adoption Application and an Adoption Contract must be completed before any dog can begin their 2-week foster. Our average adoption fee runs about $395. This amount serves to cover vetting, spay/neuter, all vaccinations, heart worm testing, temperament testing and transport. Our dogs come from Texas, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and rural Colorado.
