Once Friday gets a sudsy bath and a thorough brushing, he will absolutely be one of the most adorable guys around. At 9 - 12 months old and about 15 lbs, Friday is a perfect size to accompany his family just about anywhere a very sweet, small dog is welcome.
Friday is every bit the young guy...fun and active. But at the same time he is a well-behaved and very happy guy (once he's used to his environment). Friday is most likely to express himself with his wagging tail and excited kisses of love. At this early point in Friday's development, he loves almost everyone..be it human or canine. We want to nurture this positive vision of the world by matching Friday to a family who expresses their devotion for him in many different ways. We'd like him to attend positive reinforcement group obedience group classes to be the very best adult dog he's capable of being (Farfel's is happy to provide a list of force-free trainers in your area). We also feel Friday would be most comfortable with an adult family or one with older, dog-crazy kids 10+ where voices are softer and the energy is calmer.
Right now, Friday is a blank slate who will soak up positive feedback with every effort to be the best behaved and most cuddly guy around. Friday is so loyal that he can easily be a constant companion - he would love nothing more than long walks, trips to the store (he's a great window-shopping friend), lap-sitting or even a place at a pet-friendly workplace. Friday is flexible enough that he can be introduced to virtually any situation...and if there is love and gentle guidance...he can succeed.
Friday's new family needs to have the motivation, energy and open heart for a young rescue dog. He requires behavioral guidance with boundaries and tons of love to give him a positive attitude about his world.
Friday will be fully vetted and neutered when he arrives in Boulder to be in line with our commitment to zero population growth in dogs.
Friday has the softest coat that you just want to pet all the time. He will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (a supplement of salmon oil would be great) to keep his coat cottony-soft and matt-free.
Friday is arriving on transport in Boulder in late July. Applications are currently being accepted for our sweet pup. If interested in this adorable ...and very cuddly and loving best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 303-443-7730.
