There's nothing quite like puppy energy and silliness...and then they lie quietly on your shoulder breathing their warm baby breath. They're so pure and vulnerable that it's unbearable to think of them in a high-kill shelter!

Gabby, at just 10 weeks old and 7.2 lbs (estimated to be full grown at about 18 - 20 lbs), was facing the end of her life before it ever unbelievable as it is to most of us, Gabby was turned in specifically to be euthanized. Farfel's Texas rescuers are compassionate and loving and couldn't turn their back on this beautiful puppy...they rescued Gabby just in time!

This sweet and engaging Black Mouth Cur mix is starting out with great energy...the excellent results of her temperament-testing ended with a transport ticket to Colorado and a new life. She's also incredibly beautiful...with gorgeous streaks of gold and fawn mixed with distinguished black markings that have come out since Gabby received a sudsy bath after her release from the shelter.

Gabby is appropriately playful and inquisitive for her young age. She's so smart and very typical of a Black Mouth Cur mix. In investigating this lovely breed, we've learned the following:

Black Mouth Curs are great family dogs! They are very social and sweet if given training, socialization and lots of love. The BMC is also an extremely smart breed who by nature bonds and falls in love with their family easily They are also very sensitive dogs that are very attune to their master's voice. BMC's make truly great family dogs as long as they have physical and mental stimulation. This dog will not be happy spending the day on the couch alone. They are very social and need a human companion (a doggie pal would be great as well) and daily routines where they are allowed to play and be their joyful, fun-loving selves..

Gabby is so smart and loving...clearly having no memory of her scary start. Since Gabby is just a baby, 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 and will form firm bonds with her family (as well as other dogs & humans) and learn positive socialization skills through Puppy Socialization Class followed by positive reinforcement group Obedience Classes. It does take time and commitment...yet pays off a thousand times over when you have a dog that can accompany you in the world with appropriate behavior.

We're open to Gabby finding her forever home with a very active retired couple or individual with lots of energy to train and enjoy a puppy. Gabby is great with children as well but we would prefer to place her in a home with older kids that can participate in a gentle yet consistent training regimen.

Gabby will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 8/26/16. If interested in this adorable puppy who is a cuddly an d fun companion, please fill out an application at and submit to

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 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.
