Rescue Me ID: 16-06-11-00224Rudy-ADOPTION PENDING (male)

Bichon Frise Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    When Rudy's rescuer walked down the aisle of the dismal Texas shelter, she was shocked to see the adorable (and so sweet) Rudy tucked tightly into a cage...his time was up. Farfel's immediately got a call describing how incredibly cute and sweet this Poodle mix is..and the need to save his life. We agreed and Rudy became a very treasured Farfel's dog. He earned a ticket to a wonderful new life in Colorado with his great personality and kind and positive attitude toward the world. At just 2.5 - 3 years old and 16 lbs, this beautiful and very loving guy is a blank slate waiting for positive input and guidance to be the best dog he's ... (Read More)capable of being. Initially Rudy may be a bit shy...after all, life in a high-kill Texas shelter is very scary. Once he feels that there's love and caring, he's a great lap-dog and a loyal best friend. We'd love to match Rudy to a family that will spend lots of time with this very portable pup. He's a perfect size to accompany his family just about anywhere...and would love it. Positive reinforcement group obedience class will not only provide socialization and great skills...but will cement the relationship between Rudy and his family. Rudy gets a ton of attention when he's out and about...his foster is stopped over and over by other walkers inquiring, 'what kind of dog is that?' and 'oh my, he is the cutest dog I've ever seen'! It's true...Rudy is a gorgeous guy with the most expressive eyes. Dog-lovers know that Poodle/Bichons are a special of the most hypoallergenic and cuddly. They therefore are opportunistically bred for their great qualities. When Rudy turns that gentle look in your direction, you can't help but smile at his silly antics and adorable ways. You can see just a touch of a sign that this sweet guy has had difficult times. But not for him to be negative..a smile and a wag is more Rudy's style. It's clear that Rudy has left the pain behind...he couldn't be more joyful once bonded. Farfel's Rescue is searching for an adult family (or with older kids) for Rudy. It's not that he doesn't like young kids...we just feel he'll be more comfortable and settled with adults. A retired couple or individual would be perfect for this pup. He would thrive on the time and attention that he could share. Rudy is a loyal and positive puppy..that makes him very easy to spend time with just enjoying the wonders of life in Colorado. Rudy would also enjoy time with dogs of similar size who could be gentle playmates. When you're only 16 lbs, even a very well-adjusted puppy can be intimidated by larger, rambunctious dogs. Rudy has a cotton-soft coat that hasn't received the care that is needed. He therefore has spots of dermatitis..caused by filth, fleas and stress. Once Rudy is in a responsible home with clean conditions and periodic grooming, his hair will grow out into the amazing, cottony-soft coat that speaks of his breed mix. We've requested that Rudy be groomed (most likely shaved to rid him of the matts that cause him pain). We're not entirely optimistic that this will occur. If it does not, Farfel's is happy to pay costs for a bath and grooming at our Denver groomer. Rudy will be arriving on transport in Boulder on 6/17/16. If interested in this sweet dog who is full of love and personality, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 16-05-15-00320Lexie (female)

Bichon Frise Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    We got a very concerned email from Texas about sweet Lexie ...the shelter was set on finding a home for this very beautiful Poodle/Bichon Frise mix (with the most amazing eyes that speak of great wisdom). It's very unusual to find a silver and black Poodle mix in rescue...they're much more rare than other colors. We've no doubt that Lexie would have had a life as a breeder if she hadn't been recognized for her great temperament and rescued from a life in a cage. Lexie was brought to the attention of rescuers..they enjoyed her sweetness and quiet companionship . But as stunning as Lexie is on the outside, it just doesn't compare with the ... (Read More)love and good-will that flows from the heart of this beautiful girl. Lexie aced her temperament testing (she passed with flying colors) and got a perfect on her vetting assessment. she went to her New Mexico foster be reminded of respectful house skills and to wait for her transport to Denver and a brand new life. Since Lexie received an A for sweetness, cuddling and general positive behavior, she's ready to be a devoted family member. We envision Lexie in a home either with older and very gentle children who can cuddle and love Lexie with a light touch or she'd be a natural in a home with retirees who will shower time and attention on this devoted and engaging girl. Lexie has a stunning black coat with the most beautiful silver streaks running through it. As a Poodle/Bichon mix, Lexie is a non-shedder and considered to be one of the most hypoallergenic breed mixes available today. She will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep her coat cottony-soft and matt-free. We would never want Lexie in a situation where she's alone for many hours. Instead we would love for her to be taken along on walks, adventures and visits with dog-loving friends. She's almost impossible not to fall in love with...her manner speaks of softness and light. Lexie also travels like a champ - she loves nothing more than coming along on errands, socializing visits and any adventure that keeps her together with those she loves. She would also be a natural to come along on vacations or getaways (and is a perfect companion and lap dog at 3.5 - 4 years old and 9 easy to scoop up and take along). Lexie is so pleasant with everyone that she attracts admirers everywhere she goes. But it will definitely be the special lap and familiar touch that will draw Lexie back to her family every time...she's a one-family girl! Lexie is being fostered in Denver. Farfel's is currently accepting applications and setting up Meet and Greets for our sweet girl. If interested in this snuggly and loyal pup who desperately wants to be a best friend, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730. (Less)
