SKIPPER's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, in need of an experienced adopter, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.

SKIPPER's Story...
Skipper, a little 10-lb. Yorkie mix, came into rescue because his guardian entered an assisted living facility, and no family member was able to take him in. Even though he's 12-years-old, he's a very active and happy fellow who loves to play with his toys. He enjoys having doggie friends... young, old, large, small, male or female... he really enjoys being part of a pack.

Skipper is a one person dog. He attaches to one person and gives his all to that person, but just tolerates other people coming in and out of the home. It takes Skipper a while to bond with a new special person in his life. He has to be given his space, and in a day or so he will come to you. When he is ready for a new person in his life, he is very affectionate and loyal.

Skipper has been mentored by a certified behavior consultant, Jack Grever at Longshot Farms. Jack is willing to guide Skipper's adopter in the proper methods to achieve a happy home with Skipper.

Skipper is housetrained and walks well on a leash. He is not at all destructive in the home, and is trustworthy to be left out when you have to be gone. Skipper is also food oriented, which is helpful in his training.

Skipper is neutered, microchipped, current on his Rabies, DHP/Parvo, and Bordetella, tested negative for Heartworms, and is on Hearworm prevention

Skipper's adoption fee is $200.00.

Forever Home Canine Rescue offers a 3-week trial adoption period with all our adoptions, just to be sure that the pet is a good match for the adoptive family. The fee is refunded if the adoption does not work out within the trial period. We want to be sure that each of our pets will have the perfect “forever” home!

FHCR does adopt out-of-state, but we never 'ship' or 'transport' our pets. An approved adopter must come to NC to meet their new canine companion and then take him/her back home with them.

If you are interested in Skipper, and think he may be your ideal canine companion, please visit our website at for information on our adoption process and to download an application, or you may e-mail us at for additional information, or to request an application.

Why Adoption is a Great Option

SKIPPER, a Barium Springs 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 Barium Springs, or seeking a Yorkie, Yorkshire Terrier dog from a breeder in Barium Springs.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Barium Springs 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 Barium Springs 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 Barium Springs paves the way for another one to be saved.
