|Rescue Me ID: 18-02-18-00063Lucca (male)|
The Cairn Terrier/Shetland Sheepdog mix is a perfect combo for those who are searching for an extremely smart, adorable and loyal family dog. Of utmost importance...both breeds are famous for their intelligence, devoted temperaments and extremely loving ways. Both are also known to be trustworthy and generally very kind and playful with humans and other dogs. Lucca is just a young guy and is learning about the ways of the world. He loves his neighborhood walks with his rescuer. Lucca is learning proper socialization skills - he's a very engaging and cuddly guy who draws a ton of loving attention and he eats it up! Any time a fun adventure is the order of the day - count Lucca in! He's just a young guy who can't wait to engage joyfully and energetically.. and then crash on the couch snuggling close to favorite humans and canines. Lucca is as cute as can be and a very sweet guy who favors the look and loyalty of the Cairn Terrier while taking on the very intelligent and engaging qualities..as well as the body structure of the Sheltie. Lucca will require a commitment to periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition (salmon oil would be a great supplement for Lucca) to keep his coat healthy, cottony-soft and matt-free. Lucca's sweet nature is just waiting to be enjoyed and appreciated...he makes close playmates everywhere he goes. Lucca is friendly (while perhaps initially shy) and that means everyone he meets has the potential to become a friend. You know when a loved one approaches, Lucca's tail starts the greeting and it wiggles up through his entire body ending in a smile. And if your lap is available, up Lucca goes to cuddle and snuggle and let you know the level of his devotion. Lucca is such a wonderful being...we think he represents the best qualities of his breeds. At about 9 - 12 months old and just about 35 lbs, Lucca seems to be leaving behind the neglect and lack of love that made up his early life. He has become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please. The happier his family is with his behavior, the more Lucca shines with his accomplishments. We would like to see Lucca in a home that includes him in family time and activities...he'd love to be involved and would thrive in a family that truly loves him and considers him a very important family member. Lucca would be a wonderful companion for retirees who have the time and desire to be best friends with a truly adorable young dog. Lucca would be overjoyed to accompany his favorite people to the park, on neighborhood trails and even just riding shotgun running errands. Lucca doesn't require another dog to be happy.(as long as he gets both physical exercise and mental stimulation from his people). He does, however, enjoy his canine relationships with kind and gentle dogs. Lucca is up to date on his vetting, but has yet to be neutered. We're hoping that he will be fixed when he arrives from New Mexico, however there are far too few vets in this impoverished area of the state. If Lucca isn't fixed, Farfel's will cover all costs for him to be neutered and micro chipped at our vet in Denver to be in line with our commitment to be a part of the solution to pet overpopulation. Lucca will arrive on transport in Denver in mid-February (will update exact date when available). If interested in this very loving and devoted 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. PLEASE NOTE: If you're truly interested in adopting Lucca, please be sure to fill out our adoption application. It's the only initial tool that we have to determine a great match for this very deserving dog. We're sorry, but in most circumstances, we're unable to get back to those that don't submit an adoption application. Thanks so much for choosing rescue. (Less)

Aldo is a Korean Sheepdog or a Sapsali. He came to the US from Korea as a puppy. His breed was bred to be watchdogs and he takes his job very seriously. He is dog specific. Not good with strangers. Extremely sensitive and he can be overly anxious and fearful. He guards and protects his owner and was returned to the shelter after nipping at his owner's father-in-law. He weighs 49 pounds and is approximately 30 inches tall. Lovely dog for the right person.

|Rescue Me ID: 18-02-05-00382Comet (male)|
Comet is 5-6 y/o, 15# Sheltie mix who is really happy to be out of the shelter. He's now waiting for transport to CO in the next couple weeks. Comet was found running around the streets of TX with his little Chi friend and got picked up by the POPO. He didn't like it in doggie jail as you can see from his mugshot. Comet will be neutered, chipped and utd on shots prior to adoption. He is dog friendly but that's all we know about him right now. If you'd like to set up a meet and greet with him when he gets to CO, please complete an application at https://www.lowridersofthewest.org/adoption-application.html We require a home check and meet and greet with current pets and/or children in the home. He's being fostered in Littleton, CO. (Less)
