Facts about Pete

  • Breed: Dachshund Mix
  • Color: Tan/Yellow/Fawn
  • Age: Young
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
It got scarily close to Pete's euthanasia time in a dismal Texas shelter. It was definitely through no fault of his's all a matter of space. He came in at a very crowded time (but then again..all times are very crowded) and was therefore given a very short window in which to be rescued. After a scramble by our very compassionate Texas rescuer (she has a soft spot for a really cute fuzzy guy with a great temperament!), Pete was pulled out of the shelter at the last second possible. His rescuer, shelter workers and Pete's foster haven't stopped raving about this adorable and engaging guy ever since.

There was some indecision about Pete's breed mix...the shelter initially said Dachshund/Terrier mix, but upon further vetting, Pete was said to be a purebred Doxy by one vet and another vet agreed that that was very possible. All we know is that Pete is truly wonderful, very beautiful and would be a great addition to any family.

Pete, at 18 - 24 months old and 16 lbs is the perfect size to take along just about anywhere. He is such a perfect candidate to find his forever home in Colorado - he's a natural-born walker and neighborhood socializer with the energy and enthusiasm to accompany his favorite person just about anywhere. We envision Pete with an active, very loving family with older, respectful kids or retirees who enjoy spending their time with a comical and very entertaining fuzzy guy. Pete would be a very family-oriented pup if given the chance...adventures, vacations or just hanging out at home would speak to the nature of this very family-oriented guy. A fun time would be exploring dog-friendly spots or time spent hanging out with gentle canines and their dog-loving families. At the end of the day...there would be nothing better for Pete than to snuggle down with his family of humans and canines..he is unknown with cats.

Pete can be counted on to be a truly positive addition to any home. He is a low-maintenance guy whose joy at being part of a committed family would know no bounds. Pete would shine in positive reinforcement group obedience classes since his desire to please is so strong...and it would create that special bond that exists between a trained, respectful dog and his people.

After passing his temperament tests and vetting with flying colors, Pete is in a foster home in Texas being reminded of his basic house skills. His foster family has described him as a lovebug and a comedian...can we possibly say more? They did say that Pete may need a bit of time after his long transport to Boulder, to be his happy-go-lucky and very loving self.

Pete will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 9/30/16. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at If you're interested in this extremely sweet, cuddly and fun-loving pup, please fill out and return to, fax to 303-443-7730 or mail a hard copy to Farfel's Farm 906 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302.

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.
