Rescue Me ID: 18-06-19-00041Wiley (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    The very first thing that Wiley the Bearded Collie/Border Collie mix wants to make clear is that he's a love. In this photo, you're not aware of the gorgeous silver streaks that run through his soft as cotton, non-shedding coat - with grooming, care and great nutrition (a daily salmon oil supplement is an excellent choice for longevity and coat care), Wiley's coat will not only be silky soft..but shining with good health. Everything is new to Wiley...he sniffs shyly at an outstretched hand...and then very slowly and carefully approaches for a loving touch. And then after Wiley gathers his courage, he snuggles close. He loves to lie next to ... (Read More)his favorite people on the couch for some TV time and then on the bed as he sleeps through the night. Wiley is so happy there beside his family because his human relationships are so important to him. We have to remember that Wiley came from a very tough and challenging Texas shelter. As a result of unkind handling and harsh conditions, Wiley is initially a bit shy. Once he's given some time and space..and assured that all is well, he becomes the sweetest and most loving guy ever! Wiley ultimately wants what every living being desires more then anything... a home and a family who loves him like crazy! He returns these loving sentiments to his family a thousand times over. This 18 - 24 months old, 48 lb guy truly lights up when he feels like he's done a good job... some serious hugging and kind words will send him over the moon. In this spirit of great behavior, we feel strongly that Wiley's adopter bring him to positive reinforcement (force free) group obedience classes. These classes provide structure to learn commands and understand his people as his leaders. They will enable Wiley to accompany his family out in the community with excellent behavior. Farfel's Rescue is happy to provide a list of positive reinforcement trainers in your area. We envision Wiley with active retirees or a younger family with older kids who desire a very handsome and loving dog as a family member and best friend. Wiley would be so excited to spend his days in the company of his favorite people. Being a herding dog mix, Wiley loves physical exercise as well as mental stimulation and is far too sensitive to spend long hours alone while his family works full-time outside of the home. Wiley will be overjoyed to hike and snowshoe along gorgeous Colorado trails and paths..enjoying the sunshine and time with his people. Wiley's basic nature is to be positive and very joyful once comfortable. He's therefore so much fun to spend time with! We've requested that Wiley be neutered prior to his transport to Denver. We're not optimistic that this will occur due to too many dogs and not enough vets in this industrial area of New Mexico. In fulfilling our commitment to zero population growth, Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for neutering and a microchip if our Denver vet is used. Wiley will be arriving on transport in Denver in early to mid-July (we update when information is available). Applications are currently being accepted for this sweet and cuddly best friend. An application can be found at http://farfels.com/farfels-rescue/adoption-form/. If interested, please fill out completely and submit. **PLEASE NOTE** If you're truly interested in adopting Wiley, 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 guy. We're sorry, but in most cases, we're unable to get back to those that don't submit an adoption application. Thanks so much for choosing rescue. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 18-06-09-00007Luna (female)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Puppy

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

    Our sweet and beautiful Luna couldn't be more loving no matter how hard she tries. Luna is an 18 - 24 month old, 33 pound Australian Shepherd/Border Collie mix that is just waiting to be the love of someone's life. Both Australian Shepherds and Border Collies (herding breeds) have grown tremendously in popularity over the past few years. It makes perfect sense in that they're known for their gorgeous looks, great temperaments, super intelligence and loyalty...and so important...a deep love for their families. Farfel's rescues almost every herding mix that passes our temperament testing and is in need of our help... with the confidence they ... (Read More)will have great energy and be excellent family members. Luna has all these wonderful traits and was described by her New Mexico foster mom as PERFECTLY WONDERFUL! Luna has had a challenging period of time but is now safe and sound'|never to be cold or hungry again. But with it all'|she doesn't hold a grudge and desires only to be the best companion possible. Since Luna is a young girl, she's a blank slate'|open to all possibilities if treated kindly and with respect. Group training classes with a positive reinforcement trainer would truly serve both Luna and her family (as it does every dog and their people). Together they will learn the skills to have Luna be a companion that is well-behaved in every situation. It also creates strong bonds of respect between pup and family. Farfel's is happy to provide a list of force-free trainers in your area. Luna (while initially shy) tends to be a loving and sensitive girl who loves life and responds so well to nurturing and time spent together (hugs and kisses are absolutely awesome)... and of course some great treats are always a wonderful option. Luna gets very attached to those she loves and before you know it, is on her way to her favorite people for belly rubs and and a big hug. Luna loves to come along ..be it to a dog-friendly workplace, a long and very fun hike, a vacation or just socializing'|Luna would love to be there as Companion #1. She has such a pleasant personality and is low-maintenance enough to fit in just about anywhere . We envision Luna in a home that will provide her with exercise and mental stimulation (so important for the VERY smart herding breeds). Luna wouldn't be happy spending long hours alone'|she is far too people-oriented to be happy with that. A retiree or a person who works either part-time or from home would be great. Luna would love the companionship and consistency of those relationships. Being a young dog, she'll also learn that she's loved and cared for. This is a lesson that results in a happy and confident adult dog. We've requested that Luna be spayed prior to her transport to Colorado. We're hoping that this will occur but often does not in these industrial areas where there just aren't enough vets. If it doesn't.. Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for Luna's spay and microchip if our Denver vet is used. Luna will be arriving on transport in Denver in mid June...we'll update the exact day when information is finalized. Applications are currently being accepted for this sweet and devoted best friend and can be found at http://farfels.com/farfels-rescue/adoption-form/. If interested please fill out completely and submit. **PLEASE NOTE - If you're truly interested in adopting Luna, please be sure to fill out our adoption application.

Personality: High Energy, Very Submissive 
Health: Needs to be Neutered 

    He showed up at a friends farm trying to live off the gargbe and the creek behind it. He is the biggest sweetheart and gets along well with my old mutt (even try's to heard her for me). He is still a little bit skiddish but just wants to cuddle and be loved. I unfortunately am not allowed to have another dog in my rental or I'd take him in a heart beat. He does need to be fixed and to the vet but he is cleaned up and been being fed. Please help me with this dog I will waive fee if you can prove he is going to a good home. Would make perfect farm dog

Rescue Me ID: 18-05-12-00108Hobson (male)

Border Collie Mix    Age: Senior

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Hi, I'm reaching out because I need to find a loving home for my 10-year-old border collie mix, Hobson. I've lived in South Boulder for almost 12 years but am moving to Japan to teach at an international school. As excited as I am about the opportunity, I have been utterly agonizing over the fact that Tokyo would NOT be a healthy and happy place for Hobson. I thought I'd found a perfect family to adopt him; they adored him and seemed ideal, however they have decided that they need to get a little dog they can fly with. I'm looking for someone wonderful who would like to adopt an incredibly sweet and loving companion. Hobson is a border ... (Read More)collie mix who is extremely affectionate, well-behaved, loving, and gentle. He's around 10 (bit of a guess, since I originally adopted him from the Boulder Humane Society when he was still essentially a puppy) and is very healthy (just last week he had his annual physical and lepto vaccination update). He's had the same vet ever since I've had him, and he could provide all of Hobson's records. He is gentle--the name is my 2-syllable version of Hobbes from 'Calvin and Hobbes'. When I adopted him, I took my then very young nephew whose name is Calvin (also after the comic character ) to the shelter to see how they interacted. He's always been wonderful with my friends' babies and children, and with my niece who has autism. He's also great with other dogs. He'd be best in a home without cats, just because they continue to intrigue and perplex him, so he follows them around and stares at them like a canine stalker. If I were a cat, it'd drive my nuts. He loves hiking, hanging out with me when I'm doing yard work, swimming or 'fishing' in a nearby pond, and just keeping people company. When I used to ride at a local barn, he often joined me and was comfortable around the horses. When we're out and about, I swear he's as happy to greet people as he is other dogs. He likes to lay down in front of a picture window in my living room to watch what's happening outside. He's extremely affectionate and likes to be close--he tended to want to climb inside of my sleeping bag when camping. I've had an *incredibly* difficult time thinking about not having Hobson in my life; I try not to think about it, but of course, it's always lurking in my mind. **His well-being is paramount.** I appreciate you taking the time to think about whether you would be or whether you know of anyone who might be a good fit for him. Grateful and heavy-hearted, ~Sheri Tappert (Less)

Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    DIZZY is a 3 year old McNab Border Collie. We think he might have had a reaction to a vaccine as a pup because he is missing part of his nose. His ability to herd the pack and run like the wind is not at all affected by his disability! Dizzy is a sweet boy to boot.

PIease Read Before Adopting a Border Collie in Colorado
    Border Collie Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. Border Collies are extremely intelligent, faithful dogs who live to please their masters. Border Collies need lots of attention and praise. They respond to high level obedience training and make excellent Frisbee dogs and farm workers. Border Collies do well in large yards or with acreage and they need a job to do. If a Border Collie becomes bored, he will find his own job to do and it may not be the owner's idea of work. Border Collies do well with older children and other dogs, and some Border Collies can coexist with cats. However, it depends on the dog, and generally Border Collies should not be trusted with non-canine pets.

lnteresting Border Collie Trivia Low-Cost Colorado Spay & Neuter Clinics
    Border Collies stare down cows and are sometimes said to hypnotize them. Border Collies are used in Frisbee competitions. Border Collies are considered by some to be the most intelligent breed of dog. Border Collies are used by police for narcotics and bomb detection as well as search and rescue work.
