Luna's Story...
It always touches our hearts at Farfel's when we see the young puppies that are already in desperate situations. Such was the case when Luna's adorable face popped up on our computer screen as "Urgent". How could it possibly be that this gorgeous Maltese/Yorkie (Morkie) baby (and her 3 siblings) was about to be euthanized? We sprang into action and were successful in rescuing 2 of the puppies (while another rescue made a commitment to the 2 others). Luna is a beautiful puppy who fortunately is too young to be affected by her time at the shelter. Since Luna is only 9 weeks old, she's a tiny girl but will most likely weigh approximately 10-12 lbs when full grown. She's starting off with a naturally loving and curious temperament...if treated with love and respect while having clear boundaries, Luna will develop into a well-balanced and super-devoted companion. The reality of adopting a puppy is that they're a blank slate...they will develop into the adult dogs we teach them to be. If we housebreak and begin general training with a serious sense of commitment.... yet with an understanding that our pup ends up as loving as they are treated...we will end up with a well-balanced and devoted companion. We strongly suggest Puppy Socialization classes (offered by most trainers) to introduce Luna to other pups and to begin her understanding of what appropriate behavior is toward other dogs. It also teaches the beginning skills of sitting, lying down and recall. We are open to placing Luna in a home with older children or with a retired couple (or individual). We would love a family that has the time and motivation to guide a puppy...and snuggle her as well. This requires lots of togetherness and clear messages as to what's expected. We also feel strongly that a puppy needs to be kept stimulated with frequent walks, playtime and socialization with as many humans and other pups as possible. It is through this positive interaction that Luna will develop into a dog that is trustworthy around other dogs as well as children. She would enjoy riding shotgun in the car to develop a love of traveling as well as guidelines as to what appropriate car behavior is. Luna is a non-shedding girl and will therefore require periodic grooming to keep her gorgeous coat healthy and matt-free. Farfel's will take responsibility for payment for Luna's spaying/shots and microchip as soon as she's old enough for the procedures.

Luna will be arriving on transport in Denver in early November. Applications are currently being accepted for this snuggly, cuddly companion.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Luna, a Boulder Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier puppy was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Boulder, or seeking a Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier puppy 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 Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Maltese/Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Boulder paves the way for another one to be saved.
