Brooke-ADOPTION PENDING's Story...
When Brooke's rescuer walked down the aisle of the dismal Texas shelter, she was shocked to see the adorable (and extremely dirty and matted) Brooke tucked tightly into a cage...her time was up. Farfel's immediately got a call describing how incredibly cute and sweet this Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu mix is..and the need to save her life. We agreed and Brooke became a very treasured Farfel's dog. She earned a ticket to a wonderful new life in Colorado with her great personality and kind and positive attitude toward the world. At about 6 years old and 12 lbs (perfect age and size..old enough to have left babyish ways behind and young enough to have many, many years ahead to accompany her people just about everywhere), this very beautiful pup is a blank slate waiting for positive input and guidance to be the best dog she's capable of being. We'd love to match Brooke to a family that will spend lots of time with this very portable girl. She's a perfect size to accompany her family just about anywhere...and would love it. Brooke gets lots of attention when she's out and about...she's very engaging (while just a bit shy at first) and as sweet as can be. She's also extremely eye-catching...her expressive eyes draw you in while you experience her warmth and kindness. When Brooke turns that wise look in your direction, you can't help but smile at her adorable ways. Belly rubs are nirvana for Brooke and before you know it she's cuddling in your lap expressing her love and loyalty.

You can see just a bit of a sign that this pup has had difficult some point Brooke hurt her leg and was never given the medical help that was needed. But Brooke is a trooper and has overcompensated for her leg..she gets around well and is playful and happy. And not for sweet Brooke to ever be negative..a smile and a wag is more her style. It's clear that she has left her pain behind.

Farfel's Rescue is searching for a calm and very loving family for Brooke. This could be retirees who love to spend time with their furry best friend (she's the best lap pup ever)...she would thrive on the time and attention that they often put into their pets. Or a family with dog-crazy older kids would be perfect as well. While Brooke isn't a hiker, she would be the best friend and companion anyone could hope for. Brooke, once bonded, will be a loyal and positive companion. This makes her very easy to spend time with just enjoying the wonders of life in Colorado. Brooke would also enjoy time with dogs of similar size who can be gentle playmates. When you're only 12 lbs, even a very well-adjusted pup can be intimidated by large, rambunctious dogs.

Brooke has a stunning non-shedding coat with the most beautiful silver streaks running through it. She therefore will require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep her coat cottony-soft and matt-free. .

Brooke is being loved in a foster home in the Denver area. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at If you're interested in this sweet and cuddly best friend, please fill out and return to, fax to 303-443-7730, or mail a hard copy to Farfel's Farm 906 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Brooke-ADOPTION PENDING, a Boulder Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu dog from a breeder in Boulder.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Boulder already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Boulder breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu breeders who help with Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
