Rescue Me ID: 15-11-28-00078Poppy (female)

Corgi Mix    Age: Young Adult

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

    Poppy was found wondering the streets of Kansas for food and water. It was very obvious by her looks that she had just had a litter of puppies. A very kind woman followed her until Poppy lead her back to all her puppies. At this point they were only 5 days old and in pretty bad shape since poor Poppy was so skinny and struggling so much. The woman knew she could not leave Poppy and her 9 puppies there, especially since it was getting colder and colder, but she could not take them home with her because she lived in an apartment that did not allow dogs, let alone 10, so she did what she had to do, and brought them to the local shelter. ... (Read More)The shelter that she brought the family to was so low on funds that they were not going to be able to take care of the family properly, so they asked our rescue if we could take them. Two days later they were transported up to Boulder, CO. to get healthy and strong in a foster home, and then find their forever homes. It has now been 5 1/2 weeks since they were transported up here and on the 11th of December, everybody should be able to go into their forever homes, including Poppy. Poppy has been such an incredible mom. When she came in she weighed 16lbs, and she should really weigh about 25lbs. Even with all her own health issues at the time, she still wanted to be with her pups all the time and take great care of them. After about three weeks we realized that the pups were going incredibly fast and that the dad must have been a lot bigger than her (40lbs - ish). The puppies were literally sucking the life out of her. Even though pups are not supposed to be weaned at such an early age we had no choice or else all of the pups and mom would not have made it. It has now been 5 weeks and the pups are almost completely dependent on puppy food and formula and Poppy is a completely different dog. Since Poppy has been gaining back her energy her true personality is coming out and it is one of the sweetest and cutest personalities we have seen in a while. She has NEVER made a peep when she is in her crate (she is completely crate trained). When her foster comes home from work and lets her out she literally prances and dances while her whole butt wiggles with excitement. She then goes straight to the back door to go potty. Poppy is pretty much potty trained unless left alone for many hours at a time, so the crate would be best while gone, but when someone is home she will actually go to the back door and let you know she needs to go out. Poppy did not like the snow and cold at first and it was a little difficult to get her to go out, but now she actually likes it and likes running around and doing laps in the back yard. Poppy is truly a puppy at heart. She loves squeeky toys and loves to hoard them in her bed and chew on them. She does not chew on anything other than her toys and bones, and does not mess anything up in the house. Right now Poppy is a pretty mellow dog and more than anything just wants to be held like a baby and have her tummy rubbed. She will just fall asleep on your chest if you let her. Poppy does get along with other dogs very well, unless they are going for her puppies, which is very understandable for a Mama. She just warns other dogs that they are her pups and to stay away. She has tried to play with the fosters dogs a couple times, but the fosters dogs are not very interested, but she may want to play with a dog in her forever home. Poppy also loves to chase squirrels in the back yard with the other dogs. She is also NOT a barker unless the other dogs in the house are barking. We did have a DNA test done on her and it said she is a Miniature Poodle/Terrier/Australian Cattle/Corgi dog mix, which actually makes sense. She does not shed on the top of her head at all and has very curly poodle hair. She has big ears that sometimes stick up and sometimes are down like a Terrier or Corgi. Her fur on her back and tail is more wiry, but does shed. We do not want people to think that she does not shed because she has poodle in her, because she does shed a good amount, so she would need a home with someone that does not care about that. She does love being brushed though, so it is easy to contain for the most part. Poppy would do well in any type of home. She is fine with kids, but may bark a little at first if they approach her quickly. and startle her. She does great with dogs, and how she acts around cats in unknown. She would do fine with an older couple who wants a snuggle bug lap dog, or with someone who likes to go for long walks and take their dogs places. She loves walks and can go for a long time, we believe that she would even be a great hiking dog once she has completely recovered from having the 9 pups. If you are interested in giving sweet Poppy a forever home, please email us at for an application. (Less)

Rescue Me ID: 15-11-09-00033Dotty (female)

Corgi Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good with Most Dogs, Good with Adults (Not Kids) 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    Introducing Dottie...the sweet girl who was rescued from a rural Oklahoma shelter after being identified with a great (and playful and fun) personality. Farfel's is very excited to have Dottie join our rescue and we have started our search for a great family for this silly girl with the dotted ears..and eye. How could we not rename her Dottie after seeing that adorable dot around her left eye? Dottie looks like a miniature white German Shepherd but must have some Terrier in her breed to end up at a sleek and athletic 20 lbs. She's the perfect size to snuggle on the sofa (she loves belly rubs and gives the sweetest kisses), load up in the ... (Read More)car for a fun outing and take for a long hike through the mountains. As is often the case with rescue dogs, Dottie had a challenging life prior to her transport to Boulder. It appears that humans were unkind to her, but with patience and understanding, Dottie is learning successfully to trust people again. She is initially careful before she allows her heart to open (generally takes about 3 minutes) and feel confident that a person will show her kindness. Once Dottie feels the love, she is incredibly affectionate and cuddly. With just a bit of encouragement, she is overjoyed to play with all her heart. Dottie almost smiles as she enjoys those that she develops relationships with. Dottie was being fostered by a family with two teenage sons. Although this family and Dottie quickly bonded, the house was the go-to spot for the neighborhood teens and their loud voices, fast movements, and booming music... proving to be an overly challenging environment for sensitive Dottie. Dottie is thriving in her new foster home--an active household where she receives the attention and training that every dog requires to be a positive member of a family. We have found that Dottie loves to learn and please! This experience is showing that the ideal forever home for Dottie will be with an active adult family who have the time, energy, and desire to nurture this wonderful dog. Dottie is loving, highly intelligent, treat-motivated, and eager to please. She needs someone willing and able to continue to provide her with consistent guidance and positive reinforcement. The payoff for the lucky adopter of this dog will be immense. At day's end, Dottie is a very young dog who can be taught (through love, nurturing and clear boundaries) that the world is a positive place and that the human touch is a loving one. She will be a super-cuddler, thrilled lap dog and ultimately a devoted and loyal best friend. Dottie settles in nicely with both dogs and cats after a moment of assessment. She's great with them--very playful and responds appropriately. We think she'd be best placed with a family who has an energetic, playful dog that is kind, fun and self-assured. Dottie is being fostered in Boulder. Meet and Greets are being set up and applications are currently being accepted for our sweet pup with the dark, expressive eyes and of course . . . the dot. If interested in this adorable ...and very fun and entertaining companion, please fill out an application at and submit to (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Corgi in Colorado
    Corgi Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Welsh Corgi comprises two distinct breeds, the Cardigan Welsh Corgi, which is the larger of the two, and the Pembroke Welsh Corgi, which is more common. Welsh Corgis are some of the healthiest herding dogs out there. Pembroke Welsh Corgis are smart, devoted, and obedient dogs. Pembroke Welsh Corgis are great with good children. Corgis are good guard dogs and can become overprotective unless they are thoroughly socialized as puppies. Corgis are active and energetic and need to be taken on long walks. Corgis can adapt well to apartment life with enough daily exercise.
