found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.
Simon has had a very challenging short life..found abandoned on the side of the road..filthy and alone. He is now safe and sound (through the kindness of a passer-by)…never to be cold or hungry again. But through it all, Simon doesn't hold a grudge and desires only to be the best and most loving companion possible.
Since he is so young, Simon is a blank slate…open to all possibilities if treated kindly and with respect. Group training classes with his family and a positive reinforcement trainer will serve both Simon and his people. Together they will learn the skills so Simon can be well-behaved in every situation. It also creates strong bonds of respect between pup and family.
Simon may initially be a bit shy when he's in new situations…but with love (hugs and playtime are awesome) and respect (and of course some great treats), Simon is on his way to his favorite people's lap! He would also love to come along...be it to a dog-friendly workplace, on vacation or socializing - Simon would love to be there as Best Friend #1.
Simon's New Mexico foster mom (who has fallen in love with this engaging little guy) had the following to say about sweet Simon:
Simon is absolutely the perfect little gentleman and the sweetest baby ever! We've gone back and forth on keeping him but we know that we have to leave that spot open to help save another life through fostering.
Simon is the cutest Spaniel mix ever with a lot of positive energy and tail wags. He follows us everywhere we go but is never intrusive or needy. He's learning to chew on bones and understanding what a toy is about. Simon loves our mini schnauzer and does really well with both dogs, cats and very kind children. I think he would be happiest if there was another dog in the house as he's very social once he feels comfortable. Simon has the potential to be virtually perfect and the best companion ever! He's been such a joy we can barely stand to see him go while wishing him the best life ever.
We envision Simon in a home that will provide him with exercise and mental stimulation. He wouldn't be happy spending long hours alone as he's far too people-oriented to be happy with that. A retired couple or individual or a person who works from home would be great. Banjo would love the companionship and consistency of those relationships. Being so young, he'd also learn that he's truly loved and cared for…a lesson that results in a happy and confident adult dog.
Farfel's has requested that Simon 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 New Mexico. If it doesn't, we'll be happy to cover all costs for Simon's neuter and microchip if our Denver vet is used.
Simon will be arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 2/25/17. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/.
