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'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 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 and submit to 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 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.
