If you're searching for a devoted and loving best friend....Bear is the pup you want to have around! Bear, at just about 2.5 years old and approximately 6 lbs (the perfect size for neighborhood walks as well as lap time), is just naturally a lover ....when he looks at you with those dark, expressive eyes and sweet smile, your heart just has to melt. Bear is a truly beautiful Terrier..with Brussels Griffon in the mix..he has all the traits that make these very beautiful and personality-plus dogs one of the more popular breed mixes around. Bear enjoys his time with his rescuer so much that he joins her just about everywhere she goes...it's important to Bear to be a true best friend! He loves his people and would definitely win a lap-dog (or couch hogger) award. Bear cuddles close with his beautiful head draped over his favorite person's leg...an occasional kiss from Bear is inevitable. He's a sensitive guy and derives so much joy from his time spent with kind, dog-loving people. Bear is a young, healthy guy who will love his family with all his heart. He would enjoy another kind and gentle dog to play with (although if his family is loving and present, Bear would do fine alone as well). He would love nothing more than to lie in the sunshine enjoying a beautiful day with a doggie or human friend. Bear would have so much fun exploring and taking walks along the Colorado paths. He is always open to new activities...just say the word and up he jumps for a car ride or just a sociable walk around the neighborhood. Bear is a very affectionate and loving dog. We would love to see him in a home with a family (older kids preferred so there's no tail-pulling or awkward carrying) or active retirees who have the time and love for a very loyal and kind dog. We'd hate to see Bear left alone all day while his family works full-time...we think he's too sensitive for that. He's such an amazing dog and just the right size and temperament to accompany his people just about anywhere. Farfel's Rescue would like to see Bear in a home where he'll get consistent stimulation, exercise and tons of hugs. A continuing group training class promotes great behavior and confidence for a smart little guy who is learning about the world..Farfel's is happy to provide a list of force-free trainers in your area. Bear has the gorgeous, non-shedding or lightly shedding coat of the purebred Terrier. Shedding is very difficult to determine when a dog just gets out of the shelter. With time, great nutrition and periodic grooming, the coat will become healthy and less likely to shed. The forever family that we're searching for will understand that a commitment to grooming and great nutrition is mandatory for the well-being and self-esteem of this beautiful little guy. Bear 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 New Mexico. Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for Bear's neuter and microchip immediately after his arrival in Colorado if our Denver vet is used. Bear will be arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 12/16/17. 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. PLEASE NOTE: If you're truly interested in adopting Bear, 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.
