Bearded Collie Mix    Age: Young Puppy

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

    We all know how we get that awww feeling when we see an adorable young dog. Bonita is the kind of puppy who snuggles in, loves you up and then puts her head on your shoulder. She's so sweet and truly kind with every possibility open to her. That's the case unless a dog like Bonita is in a high-kill shelter that quickly runs out of space or on the streets hiding in the shadows. We're so grateful for the efforts of our great rescuer in Tijuana, Mexico for saving Bonita from abuse and certain euthanasia. She could see that her temperament was so sweet and her need so great that she couldn't turn her back on this very special girl. Bonita was ... (Read More)immediately brought to be vetted, given the appropriate vaccinations, spayed, granted a health certificate and brought to a dog-loving foster to begin her education as a cherished house dog. When we think of rescue, our thoughts don't usually go onto the tough streets of Tijuana. But these forgotten dogs deserve our help every bit as much as their US counterparts. They all have been used for opportunistic purposes...to either breed and discard or to sell as a puppy to a Mexican mill or rich tourists. Virtually all of them have lived on the streets and survived by learning to be social. They love people because compassionate tourists were their means of survival. They can sit in any language and fit quietly into any scene to earn a treat or discarded meal. This was the life waiting for Bonita...just 6 months old and 17 lbs (Tijuana vet felt that Bonita would be full grown at approximately 30 - 35 lbs. This is such a perfect size to be able to accompany her family just about anywhere and then fit perfectly onto the couch with her adorable head in your lap. Bonita will always fit right in due to her great temperament. She is already starting to understand that sweet, cuddly and cooperative behavior makes great things happen in life. Bonita was one of the extremely lucky very young dogs to show great promise in her socialization skills at a very early age. The US rescuers couldn't help but fall in love with Bonita! We all had a clear picture of this very sweet and fun-loving girl in a forever Colorado home with a family that cherishes her for life. Bonita rescue photo is of her homeless in Tijuana..frightened and alone. We're so grateful to all the wonderful Mexican people who participated with so much love in Bonita's rescue. As Bonita becomes comfortable in her home, she will become a fuzzy ball of good-will that loves to please - the happier her family is with her behavior, the more she will shine with her accomplishments. We would like to see Bonita in a home that includes her in family time and activities (and of course some lap or couch-time would be perfect!)... and takes that extra step to participate in puppy kindergarten followed by positive reinforcement obedience classes. These classes take a very smart puppy like Bonita and teaches them the skills to fit into a great family member that can behave appropriately in any situation. Bonita would also be a wonderful companion for active retirees who have the time and desire to train and be best friends with a truly adorable young pup. Bonita would enjoy another gentle dog to play with...she's so sweet and gentle as she puts her positive energy into enjoying the day with a fun friend. Bonita was identified as a Bearded Collie/Schnauzer mix by her Tijuana rescuer. This is difficult to determine with certainty, but we can see both scruffy and very sweet breeds in this beautiful puppy. Bonita is a non-shedding or lightly shedding girl with the cottony-soft hair of the Bearded Collie. She will require a commitment to periodic grooming and great nutrition (a salmon oil supplement would be great) to keep her hair cottony-soft, healthy and matt-free. Bonita is arriving on transport in Boulder in late June. Applications are currently being accepted for our very sweet girl with the dark, expressive eyes. If interested in this adorable ...and often very fun and entertaining best friend, please fill out an application at http://farfelsrescue.com/adoption/ and submit to farfelsapps@gmail.com or fax to 303-443-7730 (Less)

PIease Read Before Adopting a Bearded Collie in Colorado
    Bearded Collie Dogs can make good pets in Colorado if they match your IifestyIe. The Bearded Collie, or Beardie, as they are affectionately nicknamed, is a medium sized, happy pooch. Beardies are wonderful for households with children. Bearded Collies do not make good guard dogs. Beardies respond well to training but they have a mind of their own. Bearded Collies are very sociable and need to be with people. Beardies are natural herders who don't mind various weather conditions. They make great outside dogs and are best suited to farms or homes with a good sized yard.

    The word Collie, or coalie, is a Scottish term for dogs that herd black faced, or coal-colored sheep. Bearded Collies are also known as Bouncing Beardies because of their tendency to jump up and down to keep sight of particular sheep. The very first Bearded Collie was named Jeannie of Bothkennar. Bearded Collies have a high incidence of Addison's disease.
