Facts about Banjo-ADOPTION PENDING

  • Breed: Dachshund/Cairn Terrier Mix
  • Color: Tricolor (Tan/Brown & Black & White)
  • Age: Puppy
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
Whenever a Dachshund or Terrier mix gets into an urgent situation, Farfel's rescuers like to help. We find that dogs of these breeds and breed mixes are loving, super- smart and wonderful best friends. They tend to fit well into a family setting and make excellent companions for virtually every activity.

When Farfel's got word that Banjo was in need of rescue and had passed his temperament testing with flying colors, we immediately stepped up. Banjo was immediately brought to a foster home to be loved, reminded of house skills and nurtured with soft words and lots of positive reinforcement that he's a very important puppy.

Banjo is just 6 months old...such a great age - old enough to be able to understand and implement adult skills and young enough to be a blank slate just waiting for guidance to be a great companion out in the world. Banjo currently weighs 11 lbs with an anticipated full-grown weight of approximately 16 - 18 lbs... a perfect weight to accompany his family just about anywhere a small, well-behaved guy is welcome. At the end of the day, Banjo is the most loving lap dog and couch companion around.

Banjo is a great student and just waiting for a forever family to teach him the wonders of his world. If he is trained with positive reinforcement group training classes (Farfel's is happy to provide a list of force-free trainers in your area), and given lots of kind attention, socialization with both humans and other dogs...he will turn into a self-confident guy who will be a wonderful companion. Banjo has all the elements working in his favor since he's starting out with a great temperament and a puppy-like desire to please.

Farfel's would like to place Banjo in a home with either active retirees or a very involved family with older and very gentle kids who are motivated to provide Banjo with physical exercise and mental stimulation. With love and consistency, Banjo will also be comfortable with being alone and know that his family will always return. He'll learn this with consistent behavioral guidelines and kind boundaries present in his life.

Banjo will be arriving in Denver unfixed due to too many dogs and not enough vets in this very poor area of New Mexico. Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for Banjo's neuter and microchip if our Denver vet is used.

Banjo will be arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 7/29/17. Applications are currently being accepted for this sweet and devoted best friend and can be found at If interested, please fill out and return to or fax to 303-443-7711.

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.
