When we are asked about a special rescue pup that is snuggly, sweet and very fun-loving, we can't help but think of Dakota. His smile is shining...and maybe just a bit mischievous. Dakota's rescuer was very quick to tell us that he is SO much more handsome than his photo. She said that he does have beautiful and expressive eyes (they can't be seen in his photo but they're there and gorgeous!). Once he has a much-needed grooming, Dakota's face will show the adorable features of the Havanese and the scruffy cuteness of the Terrier.

This curious and really, really smart 12 - 18 month old, 23 lb guy is a truly great companion. There aren't visible signs that Dakota was in a very scary high-kill shelter. His rescuer described this gorgeous boy as perfect! She gave the following info about sweet Dakota: Dakota is a calm yet playful guy who really is so sweet and kind. He's a lovebug who wants nothing more than to warm your lap and be devoted and SO sweet! He's respectful in my house (maybe too busy playing and having fun) and has been very trustworthy. He's great with me, my husband, our 3 kids (from 10 - 15 years old) and our 2 dogs.

Dakota's lucky new family will be getting a true gem! We can picture Dakota as the best friend to retirees. He'd be so loyal.. and overjoyed to share his love and good will on a daily basis. Dakota would also do well in a family with dog-loving kids and other gentle dogs. He'd love the fun and active lifestyle...a hike or long walk would put Dakota over the moon.

There's also no question that Dakota would be the most popular guy on the block. He loves to engage and just be his entertaining, adorable self. Even though Dakota is usually up for pretty much any activity, he's not pushy or yappy. Exercise..perhaps long, leisurely walks or hikes along Colorado mountain trails ..and mental stimulation that comes from his time with his humans is important to this guy to keep him happy and well-behaved.

We've requested that Dakota be neutered prior to his transport to Denver. We're not optimistic that this will occur due to far too few vets in this industrial area of Kansas. If it doesn't, Farfel's will be happy to cover all costs for Dakota's's neuter and microchip if our Denver vet is used.

This adorable and really humorous Havanese/Terrier mix is a non-shedding guy. Dakota will therefore require periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his stunning coat cottony-soft and matt-free.

Dakota is currently being fostered in the Denver area. Meet & Greets are being set up and applications are being accepted and can be found at If you're interested in this sweet and cuddly pup, please fill out and return to 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.
