There are many, many Schnauzer lovers in the dog world...they're considered to be one of the most desirable of breeds. This is due to their consistently engaging temperaments, non-shedding coats and overall intelligence. There's also no question that they're strikingly beautiful with their silver scruffy coats and their soft, expressive eyes.

Beau is an extremely cute Schnauzer/Terrier mix (although it's difficult to tell in this photo). Beau is in desperate need of a sudsy bath and a great brushing as can be seen in his photo. He suffers from dermatitis (like so many rescue dogs). This is a temporary itchy skin challenge caused by stress, fleas and dirty conditions. With great nutrition and a kind and loving home...Beau will emerge with a beautiful and cottony-soft coat that speaks of his breed mix.

As a non-shedding guy, Beau will also require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his coat healthy, super-soft and matt-free.

Beau is 6 - 6.5 years old and 16 lbs... such a perfect age and size. He is old enough to have left his babyish behaviors behind and young enough to have many active (Beau will love hiking!) as well as mellow years ahead loving his family. Beau is the greatest size to be able to accompany his people everywhere a small..and SO sweet guy is welcome.

We feel that Beau's forever family should have the motivation to continue his socialization and offer him the gift of positive reinforcement group obedience training classes. Through these clear boundaries and leadership by his humans, Beau will emerge as a well-adjusted and very bonded companion. He's so beautiful both inside and out and deserves a family that appreciates his gifts and is willing to show him boundaries through love and time spent.

We are searching for an active and very loving family for Beau...either retirees or families with older, gentle and dog-loving kids. Another mellow but fun doggie playmate and a fenced yard would be great for Beau. He (like all dogs) is happier and therefore more well-behaved if he's given enough exercise and fun... followed by snuggling with his favorite people. It would be a family who spend lots of time at home (or chooses to take a sweet dog with them to dog-friendly situations) that would provide a great forever home for Beau. He would enjoy the time spent together and would blossom with a family that considers their dog a valued member of their family.

Beau will arrive on transport in Boulder on Friday 6/30/17. Applications are currently being accepted for this extremely sweet and devoted best friend (and amazing lap dog) and can be found at If interested, please fill out and return 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 $445. 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.
