Savannah could be that dream come true pup for a family or retirees who love spending their time with a cottony-soft and very sweet companion. The Golden Retriever/Sheltie mix is a perfect combo for those who are searching for an extremely smart, very loving and fun family dog.

Savannah's story is all too common in her extremely close call to being euthanized in a scary Kansas shelter. But who could ignore her sweetness and desire to bond with someone who would be her best friend? Savannah, while initially shy...her engaging and adorable nature is just waiting to be enjoyed and appreciated. She is such a wonderful being...we think she represents some of the best qualities of the Golden and Sheltie breeds.

Savannah, with her loving attitude, seems to be in the process of leaving behind the neglect and lack of love that made up her early life. At about 9 - 12 months old and 30 lbs, Savannah is a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please. The happier her family is with her behavior, the more she shines with her accomplishments. We would love to see Savannah in a home that includes her in family time and activities...she's learning about being social and would thrive in a home that truly loves her and considers her a very important family member.

Savannah would also be a wonderful companion for very active retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Savannah is an energetic girl who would be so excited with long hikes and fun activities like snow shoeing and going for runs with her favorite people...to be followed by crashing on the couch for some serious belly rubs.

Savannah will do well with anyone who's invested in spending time with their pup. She's so pleasant and portable that she can be a part of any adventure....it can be fun time at a park, a visit with friends, or just an afternoon spending time together enjoying each other's company... all of this would speak to Savannah's pleasant and fun temperament and extremely loving ways.

We've requested that Savannah be spayed prior to her 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 Savannah's spay and microchip if our Denver vet is used.

Savannah will arrive on transport in Denver on Friday 11/4/16. If interested in this sweet and engaging best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730.

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 farfelsrescue.com. 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.
