Bryce is a fuzzy, cuddly 9 - 12 month old,13 lb Shih Tzu mix whose silly and lovable behavior just makes you want to hug him on a constant basis.

When you look a bit closer, you can see that Bryce's uniqueness is unusual for a very healthy, young guy with a gift for making everyone around him smile...and immediately fall in love.

Bryce's uniqueness is his challenge...we believe that Bryce was abused while in a temporary home in Texas. Adopted (and returned with instructions to euthanize) by a grandmother and her 4 year old granddaughter..the older woman stated that Bryce bit her granddaughter. Neither the shelter nor our rescue group believed that Bryce was capable of this behavior...and we happily anticipated Bryce's arrival in Colorado.

We were so happy to greet the adorable and affable Bryce and looked forward to placing him in his forever home. It wasn't long before we noticed that Bryce had a head bob and seemed to have limited peripheral vision. Our first thought was Distemper (thankfully a test quickly ruled that out) followed by thoughts of head trauma caused by abuse. This became more and more feasible as days went by. Bryce certainly doesn't seem to care either way...he's an exceptionally happy and engaging guy who endears himself to all those who make his acquaintance.

The great news is that Bryce appears to be very slowly getting over his symptoms of his abuse...they are decreasing...while his sweetness and incredibly cute ways are becoming all the more evident.

This is a perfect time to search for a special family that will love Bryce (with all his silly ways) exactly as he is. He will be the light of that family and bring them more love and smiles than they may every have imagined.

Bryce is currently in a foster home in the Boulder area. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at If you're interested in this sweet. lovable and engaging best friend, 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

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