If you're searching for the most devoted and loving best friend ever....Sophie is the pup you want to have around! Sophie, at 4 - 5 years old and a perfect lap dog size of 8 lbs, is initially a bit hesitant...then the most bonded and loving girl around. Sophie enjoys her time with her rescuer mom so much that she joins her just about everywhere...a true best friend!

Sophie loves her people more than anything..she's a little lap-dog extraordinaire and derives so much joy from her time spent with kind, dog-loving people.

This adorable pup exudes love and loyalty...and it's catching! Sophie's tough early life doesn't seem to have left scars on the personality of this devoted and sweet pup. Her bond to her people leads us to believe that Sophie would be happiest in the home of retirees or family with older, dog-crazy children. She would blossom with the time and attention that these types of families offer.

Sophie is so portable at just 8 lbs that she is able to accompany her family just about it under the seat on a plane or riding shotgun in the car..Sophie is ready and willing. She is a welcome guest in every situation...when comfortable, her joy starts with her little wagging tail and works its way to the smile on her cuter-than-cute face. Watch out - before you know it, she's crept into your lap and snuggled up to spend time together. Sophie has an amazing attitude for a dog from a scary shelter... but it was her great temperament that saved this sweet girl's life.

Sophie would be very happy in a home where she'll get consistent stimulation, walks, play time and tons of hugs. A beginning positive reinforcement obedience group class will create additional family bonding as well as promoting great behavior and confidence.

Sophie, being a Poodle/Dachshund mix is a non-shedding...or very lightly shedding pup. She will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep her beautiful Poodle-like coat silky-soft and matt-free.

Sophie will arrive on transport in Boulder on Friday 12/2/16. 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.
