Rescue Me ID: 15-08-22-00213Heidi (female)

Cocker Spaniel Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Needs to be Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    There are few pups that can be more loving, devoted and just generally all-around sweet dogs than Heidi. At 25 lbs (such a perfect size for family fun and hiking the beautiful Colorado trails) and 1.5 - 2 years old (such a great age...old enough to be done with babyish behavior and very ready to be a devoted and bonded companion), Heidi is a great best friend for a family with kind children or retirees who are excited to provide a forever home to a very sweet-tempered companion. We got the almost-perfect results of Heidi's temperament testing reports...they confirmed that Heidi was every bit as wonderful as we originally anticipated. ... (Read More)Heidi's foster said it the best: I rescued Heidi initially because she stood out from the other dogs...she had this wisdom about her. I sat down among the dogs and almost immediately Heidi was loving me..not frenetically...but quiet, sweet and calm! She looked up at me with those amazing, expressive golden-brown eyes that told a thousand stories...I was completely in love! She was my rescue...I knew Farfel's had to find the MOST special home for this gentle spirit! Heidi is just about everything a family could possibly want in any dog. Our first night together, she took her place on my bed...not intrusively but so respectfully. It was as if she was considering my comfort before her own. In the morning, there was no morning agitation or barking...Heidi is so low-key (especially compared to my 3 crazy dogs) that she just waited quietly (no barking or agitation...yay) and then followed me to the yard for a potty break...and then inside for breakfast. She was so wonderful with the other dogs (she definitely stood out as the mellowest and most sensible of the 4) and the activity of the 3 very gentle kids (11, 13 and 15 year old major dog-lovers) didn't seem to bother her at all. She happily gave them love and hugs...but then laid down with her chew toy..quite the independent girl. Heidi has only had one accident in the house. I'm not certain if she was following the lead of the other dogs or if she just got it (maybe through smell) that outside was the only place for potty breaks. I take Heidi for a number of walks each day for socialization and exercise. When a long walk is in order - once again she's close to perfect... friendly and very easy to manage. I have some of my mellowest walks ever with just Heidi and me enjoying the flowers. There are no worries about aggression toward other dogs and I've only experienced Heidi with a wagging tail for everyone along the route. Finally I go to work in my home office...Heidi curls up next to my feet with a smile on her adorable face. As far as Heidi's breed...the shelter was sure she's a Long-haired Dachshund/Spaniel mix. I can see both breeds in Heidi's make-up. Her temperament definitely represents the best of these breeds. She has a gorgeous coat (with incredible markings) that's in line with the long-haired Doxy as well as Spaniel. Heidi will require periodic baths/brushing and great nutrition to keep her coat healthy, shining and cottony-soft. Heidi hasn't been particularly vocal in my house...but than again, someone is always around as well as other dogs to play with. She definitely doesn't have the high-energy needs of my terriers or Border Collie. Who knows...she's pure love and an absolute pleasure to have in my home! Since Heidi has a full, teddy-bear type coat, she will require periodic baths/brushing to keep her hair healthy and cotton-soft. Farfel's has requested that Heidi be spayed prior to her transport to Colorado. If this doesn't occur, Farfel's is happy to cover the costs of fixing and microchipping Heidi if our Denver vet is used. Heidi has been fully vetted/temperament tested and given her shots to fulfill our commitment to adopting out healthy and well-adjusted dogs. Heidi will be arriving on transport in Denver on 8/28/15.

    Buddha is a sweet guy who likes other dogs and loves adults. He is afraid of children and is not good with them. He is way too interested in cats and would be best in a home without them. He is very smart and likes to learn. He would be a great companion for the right adult home.

Animal ID: 14-036Hugo (male)

Cocker Spaniel    Age: Young Adult

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Kids and Adults 
Personality: High Energy, Submissive 
Health: Neutered, Vaccinations Current 

    Are you looking for an Agility dog - one who loves to run and jump and spring into the air? Hugo can jump very high and run as fast as ever. He is a beautiful Cocker Spaniel mix thought to be about 2-years-old. Although he had no obedience training until he came into rescue, he is amazingly well-behaved and listens with his heart wide open. When first in rescue he had no idea how to play or what to do with a ball or a toy. Hugo is a very active young dog who does require a good size yard with at least a 6-foot privacy fence. He has been known to jump over a 6-foot fence when he is on a mission: getting a squirrel or his foster dad leaving ... (Read More)the driveway. Thankfully he has good recall and comes when called. Hugo's life started as an outside dog where he was alone and no one available to give him any attention or love. He developed a habit to bark, hoping his bark would get someone's attention. He was ultimately taken away by animal control where he lived in a shelter for more than a month. After being rescued, Hugo was kind but often acted like a wild child running from scary things and looking for safe hiding places. Through daily consistent repetitive training exercises, his behavior began to improve. He learned how to sit, wait, get off, and get down but may need a reminder as his excitement gets a hold of him and he forgets. His leash manners have greatly improved. The human on the other end of the leash needs knows how and when to remind him if he forgets his manners. At first, Hugo did not know how to play or have fun; he was afraid of other dogs and would run and hide from everyone. He now gets along relatively well with his foster doggies. He does have food and bone guarding issues, so it's important to feed him separately from others. Hugo appears to have some herding instincts. Hugo observed his foster mom directing a litter of puppies into their crates. Within just a few days, Hugo began herding them toward their crate - gently nudging them with his nose. As the puppies grew, Hugo could be found running and playing with them, even letting them jump on and over him, playing to their hearts content. Recently, some 8-17 year-olds starting agility experiments with Hugo. He jumps over a 3 foot garden fence, sits, receives a reward, then does it again. He also loves to run on the patio railing and find a place to perch like a rooster smelling into the air and looking for who knows what. He will bark loudly however out of excitement until he is corrected for barking. Hugo can be a little mouthy but this too has decreased considerably by not doing things to him where he feels threatened and has to nip. At times, if he doesn't like what you're doing, he might put his mouth on your hand. With proper understanding by his family and others, this can be avoided. Because of this, his physical strength and his need for a high-activity lifestyle, we recommend a family without babies or toddlers. With continued consistent training with manners and rules, along with plenty of activities, Hugo will continue to learn how to be happy. If you are an active person/family and want an Agility Dog, Hugo is sure to bring you many ribbons for many years. Hugo is micro-chipped, neutered and up-to-date on his shots. If you would like to meet Hugo and continue to help him adapt to a happier life, please fill out an Adoption Application Online. Hugo's adoption fee is $300. We reserve the right to refuse an adoption to any person for the well being of the dog. (Less)
