When we are asked about a special rescue pup that is snuggly, sweet and very fun-loving, we can't help but think of Simon. His smile is shining...and maybe just a bit mischievous. His tail appears to have a mind of its own (see photo) as it wags in pure joy as he greets humans and other dogs. Simon's rescuer was very quick to tell us that he is SO much more handsome than his photo. She said that he has the most beautiful, and very expressive eyes (they're gorgeous!). Once he has a much-needed bath and grooming, Simon will be the cutest guy around. This very sweet and really, really smart 18 - 24 month old, 18 lb guy is a truly great companion. He's such a perfect age and size...old enough to be beyond puppyish behavior but young enough (and the perfect size) to be overjoyed with long hikes and neighborhood walks for many more years to come. Simon's rescuer described this gorgeous boy as just about perfect! She gave the following info about sweet Simon...Simon is an often calm, yet playful guy who really is so sweet and kind. He's a special love bug who wants nothing more than to warm your lap and be devoted and SO sweet! He's respectful in my house and has been very trustworthy with all humans and dogs that he encounters (untested with cats). He's wonderful with me, my husband, our 3 daughters (from 12 - 18 years old) and our 2 smaller dogs. Simon's lucky new family will be getting a true gem! We can picture Simon as the best friend to retirees. He'd be so loyal.. and overjoyed to share his love and good will on a daily basis. Simon would also do well in a family with dog-loving older kids and other gentle dogs. He'd love the fun and active lifestyle...a dog-friendly adventure would put Simon over the moon. There's also no question that Simon would be the most popular guy on the block. He loves to engage and just be his entertaining, adorable self. Even though Simon is usually up for pretty much any activity, he's not pushy or yappy. Exercise..perhaps long, leisurely walks or hikes along Colorado mountain trails and mental stimulation that comes from his time with his humans is important to this guy to keep him happy and well-behaved. We'd like Simon's forever family to be either active retirees or a younger family that spends lots of time at home. He's a sensitive guy that truly bonds with his people...we feel that Simon would be much happier if he can spend a good part of his days enjoying his favorite people. This adorable Terrier mix appears to be a non-shedding guy (although it's difficult to tell for certain until his sad shelter hair grows out into a beautiful new coat). Simon will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition to keep his stunning Yorkie coat cottony-soft and matt-free. Simon will not be neutered when he arrives in Denver -while we request it, there aren't enough vets to cover the needs of the vast number of homeless dogs in this part of Kansas. Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for Simon's neuter and microchip immediately after his arrival if our Denver vet is used. Simon will be arriving on transport in Denver on Thursday 11/30/17. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If you're interested in this sweet and cuddly best friend, please fill out and return to firstname.lastname@example.org, fax to 303-443-7730 or mail a hard copy to Farfel's Farm 906 Pearl Street Boulder, CO 80302. If you're truly interested in adopting Simon, 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.
