Westie / Yorkie

Sex: Female

Whenever a sweet and engaging Terrier mix gets into an urgent situation, Farfel's rescuers like to help. We find that dogs of this breed mix are loving, smart and make great family companions. They fit so well into a household and make excellent and very loyal best friends. Kiwi is one of these cuddly and very sweet Terriers. The New Mexico vets believe Kiwi to be a West Highland Terrier mixed with a Yorkie. This is based on general look, body structure and personality..she's an engaging, playful and very silly and entertaining girl. Kiwi is so sweet in her enthusiasm for all people that are kind to her. As you can see in her photo, Kiwi has dark and expressive eyes (with so much wisdom) that speak of sensitivity..with underlying sweetness and fun. Once comfortable in her environment, Kiwi exhibits a love of life that knows no bounds. Wherever this joyful baby goes, she brings her positive attitude and fun-loving (occasionally mischievous) energy along with her. Sometimes rescue dogs are initially a bit shy....but put them into a home with a loving family that provides frequent socialization, nurturing, love and belly rubs.. and they will shine. Kiwi is one of these pups...she's a blank slate just waiting for the commitment of a great family. Her love will know no bounds as she becomes a best friend and the greatest lap dog ever. Kiwi is such a great age and size... at just about 3.5 years old (a perfect age - young enough to be open to new and wonderful possibilities in her life.. yet old enough to have left babyish behaviors behind) and weighs 8 lbs (perfect size to accompany her people anywhere a sweet and social pup is welcome). Kiwi has a beautiful, non-shedding (or perhaps very lightly shedding) coat...this is hard to tell for certain until her sad shelter hair grows into a well-cared for coat. Kiwi will require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep her scruffy, cottony-soft coat healthy and matt-free. We envision Kiwi (due to her tiny size) with retirees or a family with older and very gentle kids. Kiwi is a girl who will respond to to very kind handling and time spent together. She would be overjoyed with a family that spends lots of time at home. She would therefore be a great fit for active retirees or a younger family that works from home or can bring a sweet, smaller pup to a dog-friendly workplace. Kiwi won't be spayed when she arrives in Denver - while we request it, there just aren't enough vets to cover the needs of the vast number of homeless dogs in this part of New Mexico. Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for Kiwi's spay and microchip after her arrival in Colorado if our Denver vet is used. Kiwi will be arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 12/2/17. If interested in a sweet and cuddly lap-dog and best friend, please fill out an application at and submit to or fax to 303-443-7730. If you're truly interested in adopting Kiwi, 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.
