Skye could be that dream come true pup for retirees who love spending their time with a kind and loyal dog who is the most devoted companion around. There's no question that Skye would also do well with gentle older kids who enjoy the fun that a sweet and very loving dog brings to a family. Skye has such an engaging temperament, he would be a perfect best friend. If baseball practice, hanging out with friends or a hike is the order of the day, you can always count Skye in. His friendly personality is always welcome and enjoyed. Skye loves to play and is entertaining in his antics, energy and the love he wants to show to everyone who is kind to him. The shelter vet identified Skye as a 7 month old, 40 lb (anticipated to be approximately 45 lbs when full-grown) Labrador Retriever/Australian Cattle Dog mix. We can't absolutely commit to Skye being this exact breed mix, but we can commit to him being a very sweet, lovable and cuddly guy. Skye's sad story is all too common in a scary, high-kill Texas shelter..but who could ignore Skye's beautiful face with the dark eyes that hold so much wisdom. He also has an adorable, friendly manner and a desire to bond with anyone who is kind and shows him the love and respect he hasn't had in his life. Skye will then be a loyal and devoted best friend and before you know it... he's gently loving you with a wag and a hug. The awesome Texas rescuer recognized all of this and knew that she had to save Skye's life. She contacted us at Farfel's Rescue describing what a sweet, kind and engaging guy Skye is...and her hope to send him on transport to a new life in Colorado. She had absolutely no doubt that there was a home out there that would love, nurture and want to make this wonderful guy a permanent member of their dog-crazy family. Skye's beautiful pure white coat currently looks shelter tired. He will require a commitment to periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be perfect) to keep his coat cottony-soft and very healthy. Skye is so pleasant and friendly that he can be a part of any adventure....it can be a fun hike, a visit with dog-loving friends, a car ride or just an afternoon spending time together plopped down on the couch - all of this would speak to Skye's nature. We aren't open to a home for Skye where everyone spends their days working full-time outside of the home....we'd like Skye to get more time and attention than is possible with that lifestyle Skye will be arriving on transport in Boulder on Friday 2/2/18. Applications are currently being accepted and can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/.
