August-Adoption Pending's Story...
August would be such a perfect companion for anyone who is searching for a loving and loyal lap dog. At just about 5 or so years old and 8 lbs, August is so portable that he can be a full-time best friend accompanying his guardians everywhere a small and very sweet dog is allowed. It's always amazing to us at Farfel's Rescue that these dogs with great temperaments, as well as so very cute, end up in urgent situations. It just doesn't get much cuter and sweeter than August. It's difficult to tell, but once August gets his first bath and grooming, he'll be the most handsome guy around. Once his matts are gone, August will emerge with a new-found sense of confidence and self-esteem.

August was a last-minute save for us...he would have been euthanized in a dismal Texas shelter if kind rescuers hadn't stepped up. But how could they not have? This little dog is awesome with so much life lying in front of him...a life in which he can bring so much joy to a special family.

August, being newly rescued from a very challenging life, is a blank slate waiting to learn about his world. With clear guidance and positive reinforcement group training class, August can have great behavior and be a very bonded companion. He is an all-time snuggler and will cuddle his way into any heart!

August may be frightened initially after transport since rehoming is scary ..but with love and nurturing, he will absolutely shine We envision August with loving and kind retirees...he would be overjoyed with the time he could spend in their company. It's not that August is a needy guy...not at all...he just loves the company of his humans who respect him for all his wonderful traits.

August appears to like children...but we would only be open to older, dog-crazy kids who can be gentle and understanding that August is a small guy and needs soft and gentle handling. For those family members who enjoy walks and time outside in the beautiful Colorado scenery, August would love nothing more than to share the experience. He is always up for a walk, fascinated by the activity around him. He breathes in the air, so happy to be free of the dismal shelter environment. Then, maybe his favorite's time to end the day with hugs, belly rubs and a warm spot on the bed beside his favorite people.

August is a non-shedding guy and considered to be one of the most hypoallergenic breeds available today. He will therefore require periodic baths/grooming and great nutrition to keep his coat cottony-soft and matt-free.

August will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 12/2/16. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at If you're interested in this extremely sweet, cuddly and fun-loving guy, 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

August-Adoption Pending, a Boulder Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese 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 Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese breeders who help with Poodle (Miniature)/Maltese rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
