Rescue Me ID: 16-05-05-00169Peanut (male)

Papillon Mix    Age: Young Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable puppy. Peanut is the kind of baby who snuggles in, loves you up and then puts her head on your shoulder. He's so sweet (while being initially just a bit shy) and truly kind with every possibility open to him. That's the case unless a puppy like Peanut is in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space or on the streets hiding in the shadows. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great rescuer in Tijuana, Mexico for saving Peanut from abuse and certain euthanasia. She could see that his temperament was so sweet and his need so great that she couldn't turn her back on ... (Read More)this very special pup. Peanut was immediately brought to be vetted, given the appropriate vaccinations, neutered (this is still pending due to Peanut's young age), granted a health certificate and brought to a dog-loving foster to begin his education as a cherished house dog. When we think of rescue, our thoughts don't usually go onto the tough streets of Tijuana. But these forgotten dogs deserve our help every bit as much as their US counterparts. They all have been used for opportunistic purposes...to either breed and discard or to sell as a puppy to a Mexican mill or rich tourists. Virtually all of them have lived on the streets and survived by learning to be social. They love people because compassionate tourists were their means of survival. They can sit in any language and fit quietly into any scene to earn a treat or discarded meal. This was the life waiting for Peanut...just 5 months old and a tiny 3.5 lbs (anticipated to be approximately 5 lbs when full grown). This is such a perfect size to be able to accompany his family just about anywhere and then fit perfectly onto a loving lap. Peanut will always fit right in due to his great temperament. He is already starting to understand that sweet, cuddly and cooperative behavior makes great things happen in life. Peanut was one of the extremely lucky very young dogs to show great promise in his socialization skills at a very early age. The US rescuers couldn't help but fall in love with Peanut! We all had a clear picture of this very sweet and fun-loving pup in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes him for life. As Peanut becomes comfortable in his home, he will become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier his family is with his behavior, the more he will shine with his accomplishments. We would like to see Peanut in a home that includes him in family time and activities (and of course some lap or couch-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in puppy kindergarten and positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart puppy like Peanut and teaches them the skills to fit into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation. Peanut would be a wonderful companion for active retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Peanut would enjoy another gentle dog to play with...he's so sweet and gentle as he puts his positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend. Peanut was identified as a Papillon (those classic and adorable flyaway ears)/Pomeranian mix by his Tijuana rescuer. This is difficult to determine with certainty, but we can see both adorable and engaging breeds in this very sweet dog. Peanut appears to be either a non-shedding or lightly shedding guy with the cottony-soft hair that speaks of his breed mix. Peanut will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep his hair healthy and matt-free. Peanut is arriving on transport in Boulder in mid-May. Applications are currently being accepted for our very sweet pup with the dark, expressive eyes. If interested in this adorable ...and often very fun and entertaining best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730.

Rescue Me ID: 16-02-25-00470Zeus (male)

Papillon    Age: Adult

Compatibility: Not Good with Other Dogs 
Personality: High Energy, Somewhat Dominant 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Zeus needs a lot of attention. He always wants to be with or around someone. He seems to do fine alone for short intervals. He becomes very attached to his owner (or me he did). He loves to chase a frisby and I try to exercise him every day. He's fine with my other dog (a Golden) but he isn't great with other dogs. He 'tolerates' them in the house and normally leaves them alone. Is much better outside his domain. He weights 11 lbs. and is 8 yrs old. I'm not sure how he will be around younger children. He is trained (I've sent $1500 on training for him). I've desperately tried to break his VERY close bond to me that which is actually ... (Read More)why I'm giving him only to a very great home. To much to input but will explain when we speak. I live in Thornton, CO (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Papillon in Colorado
    Papillon Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Papillon is an elegant toy breed with large ears and a gracefully curved tail. Papillons are active, playful, and full of personality. Papillons do well with older children and cats with whom they are socialized, but can sometimes be combative with other dogs. Housebreaking a Papillon may require patience. Papillons love to play outside, and can be protective and territorial. This breed does best with a yard, but some Papillons adapt fine to urban apartment life.

lnteresting Papillon Trivia Low-Cost Colorado Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Papillon is French for butterfly. Papillon dogs get their name because of the butterfly-like shape of their ears. A myth exists that Marie Antoinette carried her Papillon on her way to the guillotine.
