I am micro-chipped, have all my vaccinations, been neutered and evaluated for 2 weeks by my foster family
SKITTLES' (SRC#1769) Story
SKITTLES with this unique identification number: (SRC#1769) came into SRC'S care as an owner turn-in and has been prepared for adoption by a foster family who have gone thru our approval process. He is only one year old and very playful. He loves toys and most other dogs. There have not been any cats introduced to this household so no information there yet this big boy is probably smaller than most cats! SKITTLES has an alpha personality which is typical for Chis still he is well behaved and loves human attention! This boy loves to play outside with most of the other foster siblings in his family -- strangely enough the only one he does not really like is another Chihuahua because they are both vying for attention from the same person. SKITTLES weighs no more than 10 pounds and has yet to meet a stranger although he is probably too small for toddlers so not small children. We at SRC just want him to have that loving home he deserves.
When ready for adoption this dog will be heart-worm tested (negative), de-wormed, vaccinations brought up to date, neutered if not done already, micro-chipped, examined fully by a vet and any necessary medical issues found by this vet will have been addressed. It is anticipated that this dog will be released for adoption by the same date as the completion of the Evaluation. The date of release of this dog is at the discretion of the SRC Core Team.
SKITTLES IS BEING FOSTERED IN MICRO, NC AND YOU SHOULD BE WILLING TO DRIVE TO THAT LOCATION IN ORDER TO PICK THE DOG UP THERE WHEN HE IS ADOPTED.
Tax-deductible donation requested at time of adoption for this dog is $150.

When ready for adoption this canine will have been evaluated for two weeks by loving SRC foster parents who will now be able to give the adoptive parents information as to their opinion about the demeanor of the adoptive parent's new family companion prior to the finalizing of this adoption. SRC volunteers strive to do all of this for the well-being of their rescued canine and for a successful. It is our worthy mission to assure that each dog goes to a loving and stable home whose family members will treat each rescued dog that SRC helps as a beloved member of their immediate family.
