Rescue Me ID: 15-09-10-00158Megan (female)

Flat-Coated Retriever Mix    Age: Puppy

Compatibility: Good w/ Most Dogs, Not Good w/ Cats, Good w/ Kids and Adults 
Personality: Average Energy, Average Temperament 
Health: Spayed, Vaccinations Current 

    The beautiful Megan (please excuse her sad shelter photo...a sudsy bath/grooming and premium food to add several pounds to her thin frame would make her a whole new girl!) has been the victim of bad luck due to no fault of her own. This beautiful Retriever/Border Collie mix....with the striking coal-black coat and expressive, sweet eyes...was getting very close to her euthanasia date at a very high-kill Texas shelter. But the shelter workers (as well as our Texas rescuers) were smitten by the sweetness of this adorable and gentle girl. Our compassionate rescuers couldn't let go of Megan's pleading.. and very sweet expression and kind ... (Read More)demeanor that was shining brightly in the dismal shelter light. She's an affectionate and wonderful 18 - 24 month old, 45 lb girl (the perfect size for a hike through the mountains) who needs a family to let her know she's cherished and accepted for exactly who she is (Awesome!) Megan was temperament tested and vetted and went into a foster home to learn about pure love and acceptance while she waited for her transport to Boulder.. She was reminded of appropriate home behavior and working on her house training skills. Megan has come a long way and we feel positive that when she feels secure with clear guidelines, she'll master her skills very quickly (this breed mix is very smart!). We'd like Megan to be with a gentle dog who enjoys the companionship and fun of another sweet dog. She can also be an only dog if she's given the friendship and attention of a committed family. It seems active retirees would be a perfect family for Megan (making her a true family member would be her greatest joy) or in a very dog-involved family with very gentle and active kids. Megan has so much to offer and has had a difficult time of it. It's her turn to have the attention, pure love and training that every great dog deserves. She would be the most devoted companion imaginable for a family (or individual) who has the desire to bond through training, love and clear expectations. Megan would love nothing more than a spot on the couch next to her person...a loving touch that tells her she's a valuable and wonderful friend would be the ultimate. Megan will respond with all the love and loyalty that lives inside of her. Megan would nothing more than to share a morning walk...and maybe a stop for coffee at a dog-friendly spot. She would love to spend the day together...but can be left with a hug and a chew toy, when it's just not appropriate for a fuzzy companion. At the end of the day...she will snuggle close with the sigh of a dog that truly feels safe. Megan is a lightly shedding girl. With great nutrition and periodic baths/brushing, Megan's sad shelter hair will be replaced by a healthy, cotton-soft coat with minimal shedding. Megan will require periodic grooming and Salmon oil will be great to keep her soft as cotton coat healthy, shining and matt-free. Megan will be arriving in Boulder on Friday 9/11/15. Applications are currently being accepted. If interested in this adorable and sweet...and often very entertaining companion, please fill out an application at and submit to (Less)

    The Flat-Coated Retriever is descended from North American Newfoundlands brought into Great Britain from Canada. The Flat-Coated Retriever dates back to the mid nineteenth century. The Flat-Coated Retriever almost died out during World War II. The Flat-Coated Retriever was supposed to have been descended from the St. John's Water Dog, but this turns out not to be the case.
