Facts about Brooke-ADOPTION PENDING

  • Breed: Lhasa Apso/Shih Tzu Mix
  • Color: White - With Gray Or Silver
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Female
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 times...at 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 http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/.

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.
