found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Scout, at just 13 weeks old and 8 lbs (estimated to be full grown at about 40 - 45 lbs), was facing the end of his life before it ever began. Farfel's Texas rescuers are compassionate and loving and couldn't turn their back on this new puppy...they lovingly rescued Scout just in the nick of time. Scout is starting out with great energy. The excellent results of his vetting, baby temperament-testing (and of course his cottony coat and the most adorable puppy face didn't hurt) - resulted in a transport ticket to Colorado and a new life.
The moment Farfel's speaks up for a dog, they're immediately pulled from the scary shelter environment, brought to be vetted/temperament tested yet again..and finally to a foster home to be loved, nurtured and begin to learn about respectful house skills prior to their transport to Colorado.
When Scout was brought to the town vet after leaving the shelter, he was identified as a Labradoodle (most likely it was his very fluffy face and more angular nose that spoke of Poodle in his DNA). There's no way that we can confirm this breed mix...we just know Scout is as smart as can be (which can speak of Poodle) while having the sweetest (and sometimes goofy) characteristics that speak of Lab. At this point, Scout is a lightly shedding guy...it's very difficult to say for certain what his adult coat will be.
Scout is appropriately playful and inquisitive for his young age. He's bright, engaging and so loving...clearly having no memory of his scary start. Since Scout is just a baby, he's a blank slate just waiting for a kind and patient human to show him the way. He has all the potential in the world to be an awesome adult companion - he would form firm bonds with his family (as well as other dogs and humans) and learn positive socialization skills through Puppy Socialization Class followed by group Obedience Classes. It does take a bit of 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 Scout finding his forever home with a family with children (Scout loves kids of all ages and would be a fun and loyal companion). Retirees with lots of energy to train and enjoy a puppy would be great also..Scout would blossom with the attention and time that these folks can give to a dog.
Since the shelter is a very scary place and not the cleanest of environments, many puppies end up with dermatitis. This is very easily cured once the pup is in a less stressful environment with regular baths and lots of great nutrition. Scout has several spots of derm...his great Texas foster is using coconut oil and medicated shampoo and is making headway on his cottony-soft coat.
Scout will be arriving on transport in Boulder in late October or early November. If interested in this very sweet and fun-loving best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 303-443-7730.
