Rigby is an incredibly cute ball of cottony fur that climbs into your heart (and lap) with a wag and a kiss. What isn't clear in this shelter photo is how truly beautiful this dog is with the stunning chestnut and white streaks that run through his soft coat. Once he gets a sudsy bath and brushing ...Rigby will absolutely be one of the most adorable guys around. At just about 18 - 24 months old and 13 lbs, Rigby is a perfect size to accompany his family just about anywhere a sweet small dog is welcome... while being large enough to be an active walker enjoying the sunshine and trails with his family. Rigby is every bit the young guy...fun and active. But at the same time he is a happy and well-behaved pup once he's used to his environment. At this early point in Rigby's development, he loves almost everyone..be it human or canine. We want to nurture this positive vision of the world by matching Rigby to a family who expresses their devotion for him in many different ways. We'd like Rigby to attend positive reinforcement group obedience group classes to be the very best adult dog he's capable of being (Farfel's is happy to provide a list of force-free trainers in your area). We also feel Rigby would be most comfortable with an adult family or one with older, dog-crazy kids where voices are softer and the energy is calmer. Right now, Rigby is a blank slate who will soak up positive feedback with every effort to be the best behaved and most cuddly guy around. Rigby is so loyal that he can easily be a constant companion - he would love nothing more than being out and about...trips to the store (he's a great window-shopping friend), lap-sitting or even a place at a pet-friendly workplace would be awesome for this social guy. Alvin is flexible enough that he can be introduced to virtually any situation...and if there is love and gentle guidance...he can succeed. Rigby has the stunning coat and cottony-soft hair that speaks of both breeds in his mix. He will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (a supplement of salmon oil would be perfect) to keep his coat cottony-soft and matt-free. We're requested that Rigby be neutered prior to his transport to Denver. We're not optimistic that this will occur. If it doesn't...Farfel's is happy to cover all costs for Rigby's neuter and microchip after his arrival in Colorado if our Denver area vet is used. Rigby is arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 1/27/18. Applications are currently being accepted for our sweet pup. If interested in this adorable ...and very cuddly and loving best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to firstname.lastname@example.org or fax to 303-443-7730.
