Jiggs could be that dream come true pup for retirees who enjoy spending their time with a scruffy and adorable guy who is so loving and engaging. There's no question that he would also do well with gentle, dog-loving older kids who enjoy the fun and snuggles that a sweet little dog brings to a family. We want to make certain that Jiggs is handled kindly and respectfully...he'll return that loving treatment a thousand times over with snuggles and sweetness. Jiggs does like playing and is entertaining in his silly antics, young energy and the huge love he wants to show to everyone he knows once comfortable in his situation.

Jiggs's story is all too common in his extremely close call to being euthanized in a scary Kansas shelter....but who could ignore his cuteness, adorable manner and desire to bond with anyone who could be his best friend? Jiggs is initially a bit shy..but give him a moment (a belly rub and yummy treats are helpful) and he inches just a bit closer to a welcoming lap. Before you know it he's gently loving you with a soft kiss. The awesome Kansas rescuers recognized all of this and knew that there was a home out there that would love, respect and make this little guy a permanent member of their family.

9 - 12 month old, 20 lb Jiggs would do well with anyone who's invested in spending time with their pup. He's so pleasant and portable that he can be a part of any can be a leisurely walk, a visit with friends, a car ride, a vacation or just an afternoon spending time together plopped down on the couch. All of this would speak to Jiggs's sweet temperament. We aren't open to a home where the family members spend their days working full-time outside of the home....we'd like Jiggs to get more time and attention than is possible with that lifestyle.

Jiggs appears to be a non-shedding guy with the striking golden-colored hair that represents his breed mix. Jiggs will require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition. With this care, Jiggs's coat will shine with good health.

Farfel's has requested that Jiggs be neutered prior to his arrival in Denver. We're not optimistic that this will occur due to too many dogs and not enough vets in this area of Kansas. If it doesn't, we'll be happy to cover all costs for Jiggs's neuter and microchip if our Denver vet is used.

Jiggs is arriving on transport in Denver on Thursday 1/26/17. Applications and inquiries are currently being accepted for this loving and loyal best friend. An application can be found at If interested, please fill out and return to or fax to 303-443-7730.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Jiggs-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.
