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 http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/.
