Story
** If you are interested in adopting Buddy, please fill out our adoption application at http://farfels.com/farfels-rescue/adoption-form/ ** ***PLEASE READ BUDDY'S WHOLE BIO BEFORE APPLYING*** Look at this sweet, stumpy legged, adorable little boy! Buddy is an adorable longhaired Dachshund mix... we think he could be mixed with Tibetan Spaniel. Buddy is 3 years old and a small but dense 26 lbs. This sweet boy ended up in a small shelter in New Mexico after being brought in with 15 other dogs from a dog-hoarding case. Poor Buddy never knew what it was like to have a real, loving home, until he came to Colorado and settled into his foster home. Buddy is settling into his foster home very well, and loves his foster mom and doggy foster brothers. The following bios are from both Buddy's longterm (march - may) foster, as well his week long foster who fostered Buddy for a week while his foster went on a trip: * * * * * From Buddy's "main" foster: "Buddy is such a great dog!!! He is a total undercover LOVER. He is scared/nervous of strangers, but once he gets to know you he is the sweetest, biggest baby! He does great with other dogs, and being that he came from a home with so many other dogs, he would definitely thrive in a home with another doggy friend. But he truly loves his people so much once he warms up. Since coming home, he's opening up SO much and is a great boy! He is potty trained and crate trained! He answers to Buddy (his original name from his previous dog-hoarding home). He loves to snuggle the other dogs and has no issues sharing a bed, food, couch, or treats. His adopter needs to know that it will take a few days with him... He will be really shy & scared at first, going into a new home. His adopter will need to leave him alone, and not try to touch, pet, or handle him for the first few days, and let him decompress and come around ON HIS OWN. This sweet boy has been through a lot and needs an adopter that can commit to being patient with him and letting him warm up. Do not push it with Buddy, until he is comfortable. This means really don't try to reach towards or pet him until he wants it from you. We have had Buddy for just over 2 months and he has blossomed into a totally great and loving dog, but it definitely took about a week for him to feel totally comfortable with my husband and I. We kept his harness and leash on for the first 5 days because without his leash, I would not have been able to get him out of crate to do his business. Meanwhile we did everything we could to make him feel safe and loved for the first week to help him open up. We hand fed him in his crate, and we gave him hot dogs, chicken and stinky cheese. He truly is the best, sweetest dog. Here’s a few things that we hope will help him settle into a new adopter's home quickly: • Once warmed up, his favorite place in the world is going to be right next to you. He is sitting right next to me as I write this. • He earned free roaming privileges in our house while we were gone, but he doesn’t mind his crate either, if that's what an adopter would prefer. Especially if we leave a Kong with frozen peanut butter in there! • He is house-trained, but sometimes we need to stand there with him to encourage him to do his business. The first 2 days he had accidents because he was scared, but none since then. • He loves walks and does great on a leash. • He would definitely be a flight risk if he got out, so he needs a yard with a secure fence, and I don't think he can ever be an off-leash dog. • Because of his past, he still gets timid around strangers and takes a few days to warm up to strangers, especially men. Hotdogs and chicken are helping him learn that strange people can be nice too!" The following is from Buddy's week long foster who took Buddy when his "main" foster went on a trip: "Buddy being called an undercover lover is totally right!!!! Buddy needs a special home, who is willing to be patient while they win this sweet boy over. I, Hope, (long term Farfel’s Employee, manager, and foster coordinator) have been fostering Buddy for a week while his foster is on vacation. Here is everything that I’ve learned about Buddy in the time he’s been with our rescue (since early March) and since I’ve been fostering him myself: Buddy is terrified of new people. He isn’t a human social dog to bring to breweries, friends houses, etc… but once Buddy knows you, he is the biggest love bug, cuddler, and just happiest, sweetest boy. Buddy came to us from Carlsbad, New Mexico, from a dog-hoarding case. We’re unsure what’s happened to him in his past “home”, but he has some visible (healed) scars on his face and a big (healed) cut on his ear. These may be the reason he is nervous around people at first. The first day I took Buddy home, I couldn’t touch or handle him. If I had tried to reach for him, he would have growled out of fear, so I didn’t try to touch him at all, as I didn't want to make him scared of me. His foster put him in a crate, and I took the crate home and brought him inside in the crate. I opened the crate, and let him come out on his own. We left Buddy’s leash on him, which was super important. When it was time to go potty, I picked up his leash and he followed to the yard, and back inside. I left the leash on Buddy of the whole week, so I could get him to go outside or go in his crate at night without needing to touch or grab him. Buddy is super food motivated, which has made winning him over pretty easy! On day 2, Buddy started becoming more confident and walking up to sniff me / my hand, but would run away when I looked or moved my hand. By day 4, Buddy and I were best friends! Now I can pet, pick up, and snuggle with Buddy and he’s not scared of me at all. He rolls in my lap and loves belly rubs and being in my lap. Sometimes if we aren’t cuddling and I reach for him too fast, he will still get startled and run the other way, but he comes up to me on his own when it’s time for cuddles and he LOVES the attention. I have 6 other dogs in the house, and I think they’ve really helped Buddy warm up. He does great with the other dogs, and I think that a home with another dog (or even better, a few other dogs) would be the best fit for him. I believe he also needs a secure yard, and his adopter should have him on leash in the yard until he is fully 100% comfortable. Buddy is a total lover once you give him the space and time to warm up to you. He is so deserving of a great home, and all that they will need to do is be patient and not push him by forcing pets or affection until he is ready. Now that he is warmed up with me (and my husband too!) he is such a good good good boy!" * * * * * Buddy has been fully vetted, is in great health, up to date on his vaccines, and neutered. Farfel's Rescue is a fully foster based rescue, and offers a one week trial with every adoption. We feel that this is much more beneficial to not only the dog, but the adopter too. We believe that only getting 20-30 minutes with a dog before deciding on a lifetime commitment is not a fair amount of time to the adopter, or the dog. Therefore we give adopters one week with the dog to assure it is the right fit, and offer a full refund of their adoption fee should it not workout within the week trial. Farfel's Rescue has been doing adoptions this way since 2005 and is thrilled to adopt out ~400 dogs each year. If you are interested in adopting from us, please be sure to fill out our adoption application at http://farfels.com/farfels-rescue/adoption-form/ . **PLEASE NOTE** If you're truly interested in adopting from us, please be sure to fill out our Farfel's Rescue adoption application.

Story
Ellie is a 2-3 year old short legged, long bodied cutie weighing about 30lbs.  Ellie was dumped at a shelter in New Mexico with her six babies.  Overcrowded shelters in this partilcar area are very unsafe for pups, especially unvaccinated pups.  Ellie worked so hard to keep her puppie healthy and safe, she was suuuch a good Momma.  By the time we were able to find the fosters to get her and her pups from the shelter, two of them had passed away, most likely from intestinal parasites, which is 100% preventable, if only treated.  While broken hearted, we felt lucky that we were able to save the four that we did and we could tell Momma Ellie was very grateful too.  Ellie has now been in a foster home on her own for a few weeks and is ready to find her forever family.  Here is what her foster Momma has to say about her: "Ellie is a sweet, shy girl that loves treats and snuggles.  She is still a little nervous with everything she has been through, but she has been learning how to be a dog at her foster home and it is so fun to watch her grow and learn each day.  Ellie has learned that the crate isnt scary because of the yummy treats she gets, she is very food motivated.  She would do well with another dog around her size to learn from, love, and play with.  Ellie loves bed time and snuggles close with her foster Momma and the other dogs all night.  She has the cutest smile when shes really happy and getting love and pets.  She will make an absolutely wonderful companion for someone" If you are interested in adopting Ellie, please fill out our adoption application at brighterdaysdogrescue.com ##2034602##

Gibbs - MN Dachshund x 3.5 yrs est. birthday 10/28/2020 and he is a whopping 9.8 lbs.   Can you believe we saw Gibbs at a shelter and no one wanted this adorable little shortie? Gibbs is a doxie/chi mix and those ears are to die for!  I just want to pet him and snuggle him.  Since he has the doxie in him and a long doxie back, older children over 10 are going to be the best fit as he can be injured easily.  Gibbs will need a safe yard (they can get out easily) and door safety rules (if you have kids). He would like a friend to play with as he is playful!  Put in an application today at eapl.com.  His adoption fee is $375 May 24, 2024, 2:33 pm
