Whenever a Schnauzer or Schnauzer/Terrier mix gets into an urgent situation, Farfel's rescuers like to help. We find that dogs of this mix are loving, super- smart and wonderful best friends. They tend to fit well into a family setting and make excellent companions for virtually every activity. Sometimes rescue dogs can initially be a bit shy....but place them in a home with an involved and very loving family and frequent socialization...and they will shine! Scout is one of these great dogs. He's a pleaser and is overjoyed when he gets praise for being a great dog. Scout is just about 12 - 24 months old...such a great age - old enough to be acquiring adult skills and is an easygoing and very loving guy to be around. Scout weighs just about 12 lbs..a perfect weight for a couch companion or lap dog while also being very capable to enjoy walks with his family. As a very smart young guy, Scout is a great student and just waiting for a forever family to teach him the wonders of his world. If he is trained with positive reinforcement (and great treats), given tons of kind attention and socialization with both humans and other dogs, he will turn into a self-confident guy who will be a wonderful companion. Scout has all the elements working in his favor since he's starting out with a great temperament and a puppy-like desire to please. Farfel's would like to place Scout in a home with either active retirees or a very involved family with older, dog-loving kids who are motivated to provide him with physical exercise and mental stimulation. Scout would love being out in the sunshine walking the paths of Colorado, window-shopping on Pearl Street to fine-tune his urban skills and being a very present companion all through the day. With love and consistency, Scout will also be comfortable with being alone and know that his family will always return. He'll learn this with consistent behavioral boundaries and human leadership present in his life. Scout appears to be a non-shedding guy (although very difficult to tell for certain until his sad shelter hair grows out) and will therefore require a commitment to periodic grooming and excellent nutrition (a salmon oil supplement will be a great addition to a healthy diet) to keep his cottony-soft coat healthy and matt-free. Scout will be up to date on his vetting. We're hoping that he will also be neutered when he arrives from New Mexico, however there are far too many dogs and too few vets to treat them in this industrial area of new Mexico. If Scout doesn't get neutered or microchipped, Farfel's will cover all costs for him to be chipped and fixed at our vet in Denver after his arrival on transport. Scout will be arriving on transport in Denver on Saturday 3/10/18. Applications are currently being accepted for this very sweet lap dog and loving best friend. An application can be found at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/. If interested, please fill out and return to [email protected] or fax to 303-443-7730. **PLEASE NOTE** If you're truly interested in adopting Scout, 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 dog. We're sorry, but in most circumstances, we're unable to get back to those that don't submit an adoption application. Thanks so much for choosing rescue.
