Skittles's Info...

I am already spayed, a special needs pet, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Skittles's Story...
Skittles is AMAZING! She is about 5 years old and weighs about 8-9 lbs. We aren't quite sure what her mix is - some type of terrier or dachshund mix. This special little girl has had a rough past - she was shot at some point, causing nerve damage in her back end. A good Samaritan brought her to a shelter in Texas and she was then transferred to us. Because of her injury, Skittles does not have complete control over her rear legs and walks with quite a wobble to her gait. She is no longer in pain and is just about the happiest little dog you'll ever meet! She gets around just fine and loves to go on walks or run like the wind through the yard. She is very playful and loves treats and snuggling! She would be just fine in a home with gentle children and other small pets. She may struggle with traction in a home that is primarily hardwood and would benefit from carpet or rugs. Skittles will melt your heart when you meet her!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Skittles, a Fort Collins Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier for sale in Fort Collins, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Fort Collins.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Fort Collins already know the personality and tendencies of their pets. This means they can match you with the right pet. That will makes it much easier transition to owning a pet for yourself and your new pet.
  2. On average adoption fees are much less than you'd pay a Fort Collins breeder, or pet store. Plus most often rescue pets have already been to the veterinarian for a check-up, had a round of vaccinations, and are spayed or neutered. That is a lot of savings!
  3. You will become a hero, and give a needy dog or cat a loving home. In fact, there are even Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier breeders who help with Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Fort Collins paves the way for another one to be saved.
