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 www.forgottenpaws.com.
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.
