Facts about Skipper

  • Breed: Poodle (Miniature)/Cocker Spaniel Mix
  • Color: Black - With Tan, Yellow Or Fawn
  • Age: Adult
  • Size: Small 25 lbs (11 kg) or less
  • Sex: Male
8 years old, 25 pounds. Skipper is an 8 year old poodle cocker spaniel mix boy, 25 lbs. He is a total love bug. He wants to be in your lap every time you sit down and he is your constant shadow. He loves to go for walks and is great on leash. He is very gentle with children and other dogs. He hasn't been around cats but I think he would be fine. He loves car rides and sitting under your feet while you dine at a cafe is a dream of his. He is housebroken and crate trained but prefers to sleep on your bed.

NEEDS: Skipper needs someone who works from home or is retired who spoil him rotten. He has mild separation anxiety so he we feel he will need another dog in the home.

History: Skipper came to us a year ago. One of our volunteers found him on the side of a four lane road looking for food. No one claimed him from the shelter so we took him in. He had a microchip indicating that he was adopted from Cobb Animal Control a few years ago but the contact info for the owners was no good and we were unable to locate anyone. Skipper was adopted out quickly. Soon after adoption he had to have his toe amputated b/c of a cancerous growth. He has been to UGA for testing and there is no way to tell if the cancer will come back somewhere else or never again.

Skipper needs a new home not b/c his father is working much more now and Skipper isn't handling being alone well. He has been lost or abandoned several times in his life and he has a fear of losing his person again and wants to be with him at all times. Skipper is very unhappy. Crying and howling all the time when he is alone thus why he needs a home with another dog companion. When he was in foster care we never had these issues.

Please consider being a foster home or a forever home for this sweet wonderful little man. We want him to be happy for the rest of his life.

All dogs are fully vaccinated, microchipped, spayed/neutered and Heartworm negative unless otherwise noted. We require an adoption application, home visit and adoption fee of $200 ($150 for senior). You also get a two week trial period with all of our dogs. To apply, simply go to

Many of our dogs are in foster homes all over Atlanta, thus an application is required before an appointment can be set to meet a dog.

About Forgotten Paws Pet Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Forgotten Paws Pet Rescue is made up of a very small group of volunteers. We all work full time jobs while running this rescue group. We all dip into our own pockets on a daily basis to get these pets the medical care and supplies that they need to survive until we can find them their forever homes. Unfortunately, some of them have to wait in line for care because we do not have the monetary means to help them immediately. That is where your donations come in.

Our rescued pets live in our homes, under our supervision. We do our best to train, housebreak and perfect these pets to the best of our abilities so that when we do find them their forever homes, they work out.

We at Forgotten Paws revere our rescued pets like our own. We treat them like members of our families until they can be adopted. We are a NO KILL group and we also ask that if a pet does not work out for any reason, 2 days or 10 years down the road, please return them to us. We love them that much.

Our motto: When we rescue a pet, we are in it for life. We are not just looking for a home, we are looking for the right home.

Our Adoption Process...

Adoption Process:
October only, adoption fee is $100, that's half the price!
1. All applicants must be 23 years of age and must complete an adoption application.
2. You application will be reviewed and all veterinary and personal references will be contacted
3. Home Visit / Play Date - All household members, including current pets, are required to attend the home visit. All needed repairs to fencing must be completed prior to this visit. Gates to the yard need to be securing locked.
4. Two Week Trial Adoption Period - We require the two week trial on all adoptions so that the new pet has time to get settled and their true personalities can surface. It gives the new home a chance to make sure this pet is the right fit for everyone involved. Please understand that like a child, a new pet needs time to adjust and settle in. There is an adjustment period.
5. Adoption Agreement and Adopton Fee of $200 ($150 for seniors).
6. One policy to note: If you have children and you are applying for a dog, we will require you to have a physically fenced yard. Electric fencing is not acceptable in most cases but exceptions are sometimes made dependent upon the dog.
