found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already spayed, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
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 began...as 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 engaging...so 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 http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org.
