Rescue Me ID: 16-06-16-00029Honey-ADOPTION PENDING (female)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable young dog. Honey is the kind of puppy who snuggles in, loves you up and then puts her head on your shoulder. She's so sweet and truly kind with every possibility open to her. That's the case unless a dog like Honey 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 Honey from abuse and certain euthanasia. She could see that her temperament was so sweet and her need so great that she couldn't turn her back on this very special girl. Honey was ... (Read More)immediately brought to be vetted, given the appropriate vaccinations, spayed, granted a health certificate and brought to a dog-loving foster to begin her 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 Honey ...just 12 - 18 months old and approximately 15 - 20 lbs. This is such a perfect size to be able to accompany her family just about anywhere and then fit perfectly onto the couch with her adorable head in your lap. Honey will always fit right in due to her great temperament. She is already starting to understand that sweet, cuddly and cooperative behavior makes great things happen in life. Honey was one of the extremely lucky very young dogs to show great promise in her socialization skills at a very early age. The US rescuers couldn't help but fall in love with Honey! We all had a clear picture of this very sweet and fun-loving girl in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes her for life. Honey's rescue photo is of her homeless in Tijuana..frightened and alone. We're so grateful to all the wonderful Mexican people who participated with so much love in Honey's rescue. As Honey becomes comfortable in her home, she will become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with her behavior, the more she will shine with her accomplishments. We would like to see Honey in a home that includes her in family time and activities (and of course some lap or couch-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart puppy like Honey and teaches them the skills to fit into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation. Honey would also be a wonderful companion for active retirees who have the time and desire to train and be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Honey would enjoy another gentle dog to play with...she's so sweet and gentle as she puts her positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend. Honey was identified as a Golden Shetland Sheepdog/Terrier mix by her Tijuana rescuer. This is difficult to determine with certainty, but we can see both scruffy and very sweet breeds in this beautiful dog. Honey will have a beautiful coat with shades of gold running through it once she has the gift of good nutrition. Honey will require a commitment to periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep her hair cottony-soft and shining. Honey is arriving on transport in Boulder in late June. Applications are currently being accepted for our very sweet girl 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.
