Millie, at only 14- weeks old and about 7 lbs (is estimated to be full grown at about 30 - 35 lbs), was facing the eend of her life before it ever began. Farfel's Texas rescuers are compassionate and loving and couldn't turn their back on this puppy...they rescued Millie just in time. This sweet and engaging Lab 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.
Millie is also incredibly beautiful...with the gorgeous markings and a mask of chocolate and fawn that have come out since she received a good, sudsy bath after her release from the shelter.
Millie is appropriately playful and inquisitive for her young age. She's so smart and very engaging...so typical of a Lab mix. She's also bright and so loving...clearly having no memory of her scary start. Since Millie is just a baby, she's a blank slate just waiting for a kind and patient human to show her the way. Millie has all the potential in the world to be an awesome companion - she will form firm bonds with her family (as well as other dogs and 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 Millie finding her forever home with a very active retired couple or individual with lots of energy to train and enjoy a puppy. Angie 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.
Millie will be arriving on transport in Boulder on 10/7/16. If interested in this adorable and fun-loving best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to email@example.com or fax to 303-443-7730.
