found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
At just about 1.5 - 2 years old and about 14 lbs, Nadia is everything a family could possibly want in any dog. Our first night together, she took her place on my bed...not intrusively but so respectfully. It was as if she was considering my comfort before her own. In the morning, there was no morning agitation or barking...Nadia is so low-key (expecially compared to my 3 crazy dogs) that she just quietly (no barking...yay) followed me to the yard, and then inside for breakfast. She was so wonderful with my cat and the other dogs (she definitely stood out as the mellowest and most sensible of the 4) and the insane activity of the 3 young kids didn't bother this sweet pup at all. She happily gave them love and hugs...but then respectfully laid down with her chew toy.
Nadia never considered being disrespectful of my house...way beneath her dignity! So a long walk was in order - once again she was perfectly friendly and very easy to manage...I had one of my mellowest walks ever. No worries about aggression toward other dogs or running children...only a wagging tail for everyone along the route. Finally I went to work in my home office. Nadia curled up on my lap with a smile on her face. She kept me company all day - talk about a best friend, they don't get any more loving or respectful! I just love this dog!
As far as Nadia's breed...the shelter thought she's a Corgi/Chihuahua mix. I don't see the Chi either in personality or looks, but the Corgi is obvious. I can see the Corgi head with those adorable flyaway ears and the classic body type. Nadia has the softest cottony coat that's so shiny (particularly after a sudsy bath). She is pretty much non-vocal (none of that insistent barking for this girl) and definitely doesn't have high-energy crazy-puppy qualities. Who knows about breed anyway...Nadia is pure love and is an absolute pleasure to have in my home!
Nadia is a lightly shedding girl who will require periodic baths/brushing to keep her coat healthy and soft. A premium diet and salmon oil supplement will keep her coat shining and less likely to shed.
We've requested that Nadia be spayed prior to her transport to Denver to fulfill our commitment to zero population growth. Unfortunately, we have our doubts that this will occur. Farfel's will be happy to cover all costs for Nadia's spay and microchip if our Denver vet is used.
Nadia will arrive on transport in Denver on Friday 9/16/16. If interested in this cuddly and sweet best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to email@example.com or fax to 303-443-7730.
