If you're searching for a devoted and loving best friend....Nugget is the pup you want to have around! Nugget, at just 2.5 - 3 years old and 12 lbs (the perfect size for long walks as well as lap time), is just naturally a lover ....when he looks at you with those dark, expressive eyes and sweet smile, your heart just has to melt. Nugget is a truly beautiful Cairn Terrier/Border Terrier mix..he has all the traits that make these very smart and personality-plus dogs two of the most popular breeds around.
Nugget enjoys his time with his rescuer so much that he joins her just about everywhere he goes...it's important to Nugget to be a true best friend! He loves his people and would definitely win a lap-dog (or couch hogger) award. Nugget cuddles close with his beautiful head draped over his favorite person's leg...an occasional kiss from Nugget is inevitable. He's a sensitive guy and derives so much joy from his time spent with kind, dog-loving people.
Nugget is a young, healthy guy who will love his family with all his heart. He would enjoy another kind and gentle dog to play with (although if his family is loving and present, Nugget would do fine alone as well). He would love nothing more than to lie in the sunshine enjoying a beautiful day with a doggie or human friend. Nugget would have so much fun exploring and taking long walks along the Colorado trails. He is always open to new activities...just say the word and up he jumps for a car ride or just a sociable walk around the neighborhood.
Nugget is an extremely affectionate and loving dog. We would love to see him in a home with a family (older kids preferred so there's no tail-pulling) or active retirees who have the time (maybe a positive reinforcement group class?) and love for a very loyal and kind dog. We'd hate to see Nugget left alone all day while his family works full-time...we think he's too sensitive for that. He's such an amazing dog and just the right size and temperament to accompany his people just about anywhere.
Farfel's Rescue would like to see Nugget in a home where he'll get consistent stimulation, exercise and tons of hugs. A continuing group training class promotes great behavior and confidence for a young guy just learning about the world.
Nugget will not be neutered when he arrives in Denver - while we request it, there just aren't enough vets to cover the needs of the vast number of homeless dogs in this part of Kansas. Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for Nugget's neuter and microchip immediately after his arrival if our Denver vet is used.
Nugget is currently being fostered in the Denver area. If interested in this sweet and devoted best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to email@example.com or fax to 303-443-7730.
