Rescue Me ID: 15-08-25-00457Carmela (female)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    We think of Carmela as an old soul...she's a quiet girl who loves to either sit (on her favorite person's lap would be ideal!) and watch the the world around her, lie on the porch and feel the sunshine bathe her beautiful coat or go on short walks to enjoy that special time with her favorite people. Carmela, at about 7 years old and 11 lbs is at that perfect time in her life. She's old enough to be past babyish behavior and lots of needs yet is young enough to have many, many years left to be a great companion and perfectly wonderful cuddle-bug! Carmela's Texas foster had the following to say about this sweet girl: Carmela is a quiet ... (Read More)sweet pup that is a wonderful, low-maintenance girl.. She likes other dogs and is very pleasant with them but doesn't really interact. She's a true people-loving dog. Carmela is not very active (more of a cuddly, hanging out kind of girl), but will be happy to go out on a leash whenever prompted. She loves to stay on the deck when outside and definitely prefers to go to the bathroom when outside. She has had a few accidents (considering her time at the very scary shelter, I was very surprised that she had so few mistakes)... she's also fine with using puppy pads or a fake grass tray (I love those) if that's more convenient for her situation . Carmela has a good appetite and has been very easy to be with in every way. Carmela is on a regimen of eye drops several times each helps her, just takes a second and is very inexpensive. She doesn't have perfect vision but she doesn't seem to care in the least and seems quite unaffected when negotiating my home. Carmela will do best in a quiet stable environment. I picture her as the absolute soul-mate to retirees who want the love and positive energy of a wonderful dog while not having to deal with high-energy or high demands. Life doesn't get much better than leisurely exploration, long days with a new family and just the knowledge that she's finally safe and sound in the world. Once Carmela finds that person or family that is truly committed to her well-being and loves her unconditionally...she will bond like none other. Carmela's bonding is a life-long affair - she's very loyal and devoted...growing more in love with each passing day. It would be the ultimate for Carmela to be included in her person's life...she would be a perfect companion (and very portable) to take along on visits to friends, shopping at dog-friendly shops or long car rides with a stop at a park for good measure. Carmela would be perfect for anyone who is searching for that best friend to spend their days with...she'll always be there with kind eyes and and a snuggle against your leg. We feel that Carmela should be in an adult-only home...the turmoil and loud noises of children would not nourish the gentle soul of this exceptional dog. Carmela will therefore require periodic grooming to keep her cotton-soft coat healthy and matt-free. Carmela is just recovering from flea's perfect that she's coming to a flea-free environment. If Carmela arrives un-spayed, Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for her spay and microchip. Carmela will be arriving on transport in Boulder on 8/28/15. If interested in this sweet girl who is full of love and personality, please fill out an application at and submit to (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-06-15-00047RANGER (male)

Shetland Sheepdog Mix    Age: Adult

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

    RANGER is a senior Sheltie mix from a local shelter. We hear he was dumped for killing chickens, but would bet you that he was there first! Then he went to a home in Wyoming where he was continually mowed over by a young Lab and was scared of a man holding a shovel - an indication of the kind of home he came from originally. Despite all of that, he is a NICE boy. Walks great on a leash and loves to see what kind of treats you have in your pocket. Ranger will be an easy keeper for the kind person that sees in him what we do (as long as you don't have any chickens, but we think he would be great at keeping the rabbits out of your garden). ... (Read More) Adoption fee $150. Ranger is current on shots and neutered. For additional information or an application, please call 303-882-0837 or email (Less)
