Eleanor is an elegant older lady that deserves far better than being turned into a high kill shelter for euthanasia. In her senior years, Eleanor is a very loving, low maintenance.. and SO sweet girl who just wants to snuggle and be a best friend to an individual or family that desires this pure love in their lives. Eleanor, at 11 years old or so and 6 lbs would be such a perfect companion for anyone who is searching for that very sweet lap dog. She will be by your side to hug and love on...these are always the most important thing to Elly! She's so tiny and portable that she can be a full-time best friend...accompanying her guardians everywhere a small and very lovable dog is allowed. It's always amazing to us at Farfel's Rescue that these dogs with great and engaging temperaments..and as dignified as Elly end up in precarious situations. Eleanor was a last-minute save for us...she would have been euthanized in a dismal New Mexico shelter if kind rescuers hadn't stepped up. But how could they not have? This tiny sweetheart is just so awesome with lots of life left ...a life in which she can bring so much joy to a special family. Elly may be a bit shy initially as rehoming is challenging for any dog...but with love and nurturing, she will absolutely shine. We envision Elly with either retirees (she would be overjoyed with time spent and being at the center of a loving family) or a younger family who works at home or would be able to take Elly to a dog-friendly workplace. A like-sized and age canine friend would be great as well. Elly would enjoy the companionship and cuddle times with a furry best friend. For those family members who enjoy walks and time outside along beautiful Colorado paths ...Eleanor would love nothing more than to share the experience. Her foster loves daily neighborhood walks and Elly always comes along. For a while, Eleanor enjoys walking along...and then up she goes into a backpack to enjoy the view from above. She is always up for these daily walks..fascinated by the activity around her. She breathes in the air...so happy to be free of the dismal shelter environment. And then, maybe her favorite part...it's time to end the day with hugs, belly rubs and a warm spot on the bed close beside her beloved family members. As a wirehaired Doxy, Elly is either a non-shedding or very lightly shedding girl. As is evident in her sad shelter photos, Elly's coat hasn't been well cared for. Any family interested in adopting Elly will need to commit to coat care. She will require periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition to allow her hair to grow in cottony- soft and healthy. Eleanor will be arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 1/13/18.
