Facts about Melanie

  • Breed: Border Terrier/Cairn Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
Melanie was in a very scary situation...she and two others lost their owner and each other. They were transferred to a high-kill rural TX shelter about to face euthanasia. Upon hearing of the plight of these beautiful dogs, our compassionate Texas rescuers put their story out to the rescue community. Farfel's made the decision to help with Melanie..she sweet, adorable and deserving of great life!

Melanie is an 11 year old Terrier mix who came to us when her owner passed away and left nobody to care for her or her housemates. This girl is great with other dogs. She would, however, really enjoy an all-adult home that is quiet and free from the chaos of young children. Melanie is definitely accustomed to being an inside only dog and cannot stand a long time in the heat and stifling humidity of an Texas summer. Melanie is a truly sweet and wonderful dog who would be a gift to an individual or couple searching for a mellow and extremely loving little dog.

We picture Melanie as the best friend to retirees. She'd be so loyal.. and overjoyed to share her love and good will. Once comfortable, she loves to engage and just be her entertaining, adorable self. Even though Melanie is usually up for pretty much any activity, she's not pushy or yappy. Exercise..perhaps a walk in the sunshine to socialize with neighbors, and mental stimulation that comes from her time with her humans.. is important to this girl to keep her happy and well-behaved. it's not that she requires extensive amounts, just enough to keep her healthy and stimulated.

Melanie derives so much joy from her relationships, we would love to see her in a family that often stays at home..or chooses to bring along a sweet and kind fuzzy family member. Melanie is a great dog who deserves this love and consistency in his life

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.
