What a sweet and kind English Springer Spaniel mix our Bean is! At 2.5 - 3 years old and just about 39 lbs, Bean is an incredibly beautiful girl. We all know that Bean has arrived when we see the wag that starts at her tail and becomes a full-blown body wiggle.. She is initially cautious...assessing the situation to make sure all is OK. This makes perfect sense as she's been through time spent at a high-kill shelter waiting for her pending euthanasia date. When she was identified with a great temperament, Farfel's spoke up to bring Storm to safety (and a new forever family) in Colorado.

Once Bean senses that all present are her friends, she is so warm and friendly that she always hopes every pat and kind word will turn into a friend. She is learning to play fetch and waits expectantly...with her eyes so bright and run off again after the ball. Bean seems to have a bit of leash experience as she's developed some skills and seems to love the experience.

Farfel's Rescue has determined that Bean needs a mellow home where she is an active and important member of the family. We feel that Bean would be happiest in an only-dog home where she can get the attention that she was denied for so long. While Bean enjoys many dogs (most are larger than she is), she isn't happy with jumping smaller dogs that get into her space. We believe that Bean would blossom in an adult home (active retirees would be perfect) where there's a more predictable environment. Bean would be overjoyed to spend parts of the day together either hiking or walking through the beauty of Colorado. Then at day's end, she's the ultimate snuggler and sleeps soundly through the night.

It is Bean's love affair with life and all the hardships that she's suffered along the way that motivates us to put her through Heartworm treatments..her precious life deserves to be saved! Bean has tested low HW+ and Farfel's (with the help of Dr G in Denver) has volunteered to save this very special dog's life. The heart worm treatment process involves two series of shots followed by mellow time. We have found this to be very successful and the dogs go on to live long, happy lives.

We are seeking an adopter to lovingly care for Bean as she becomes Heartworm negative. It's quite an easy rehab process as it only entails mellow time with soft words and belly rubs. Farfel's will pay the vet bills and provide premium food and treats for this special pup as she becomes healthily heartworm-free.

Bean (like all dogs) would benefit from positive reinforcement group obedience classes that included the whole family - she is a super-smart girl who truly wants to please. Great training will give Bean the skills to be an excellent adult dog. These type of classes will also bring out the great qualities of this English Springer Spaniel mix as well as creating a tightly-knit bonding with all family members
Bean has a beautiful coat (softest ever!) with such distinctive markings. She will therefore require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep her cottony-soft hair healthy and matt-free.

Bean is currently being fostered in the Denver area. Applications are being accepted and Meet and Greets are currently being set up. Adoption applications can be found at If interested in this sweet and devoted companion, please fill out and return to 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 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.
