We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable puppy. They're so new and fresh with every possibility open to them. That's the case unless they're unwanted and at risk of euthanasia at a high- kill shelter. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great New Mexico rescuer in saving Chase...she could see that his temperament was so sweet and kind that she couldn't allow him to be euthanized. Farfel's was immediately contacted by Chase's rescuer...we were thrilled to welcome this loving and beautiful puppy into our rescue. It turns out that Chase, at just about 18 weeks old and 14 lbs (expected to be approximately 35 lbs when full-grown) is so loving and so very sweet that it's been a fun and rewarding experience for his rescuer and foster mom. Chase is like a blank slate...open and curious about everything around him. If he continues his current regimen with his foster of socialization that promotes positive relationships with other dogs and bonding with humans...Chase will become a well-adjusted and very loving adult companion. Puppy kindergarten followed by positive reinforcement group obedience class will get this very smart puppy ready for a life of inclusion with his family. Through these classes, Chase will learn cause and effect in his relationship with other dogs. He will also view his people as his leaders, therefore developing a desire to please and to be partners with his family. Chase would also be a natural for agility classes and flyball. He would have so much fun and come to enjoy this special time spent with his favorite humans. Farfel's is happy to provide a list of positive reinforcement trainers in your area. Chase is a gorgeous Border Collie/Australian Shepherd mix puppy with a shining, cottony-soft coat that speaks of his breed mix. His stunning coat will require a commitment to periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement is an amazing life-long supplement for coat care and longevity). A family that loves Chase like crazy is exactly the type of folks we're searching for for this silly/fun, entertaining and very loving puppy. We also feel it's very important that he is provided with exercise and mental stimulation. Chase will be overjoyed if his future holds long hikes along Colorado trails enjoying the sunshine. Socializing with other hikers and their dogs will definitely speak to the engaging nature of this wonderful puppy. We'd love a family for Chase that spends lots of time at home.. and chooses to include a fuzzy best friend in their activities. Chase can be taught that the car is a fun place that leads to great adventures out in the community. He can therefore accompany his family just about anywhere with the assurance that he'll be a social and appropriate guy. Chase will be arriving in Boulder unfixed due to his very young age. Farfel's will be happy to cover all costs in regard to his neuter, microchip and any additional puppy shots he might require if our Denver vet is used. Chase will be arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 6/30/18. Applications are currently being accepted for this extremely sweet and cuddly best friend.
