Kio's Info...

I am already neutered, housetrained, purebred, up to date with shots, good with dogs, and good with cats.

Kio's Story...
Kio is a seven year old male miniature American Eskimo Spitz. He is only 14 pounds and full of life, but could make a great couch potato given the chance come evening time! He likes squeaky toys, a ball to chase (he won't retrieve) and to play tug-of war!
We don't recommend children for him and despite the fact that he is small, he can be pretty busy monitoring all movement in the house.  He was surrendered when his life-longer owner had to move into a residence that will not allow him to join her.  He is apparently used to constant company and would prefer a home with a full time companion.  He does excellent in the car, great on a leash, and is very dog social.  He seems indifferent to the cats and ponders their use on earth.  

Kio is heartworm negative, current on his vaccines, heartworm and flea and tick preventions and microchipped with a lifetime registration.  

Are you interested in adopting Kio or another JCAPL pet you have seen? You'll need to start by completing an adoption application, available online at our website: www.jcapl.org. There is no obligation to adopt by completing an application, however, we do recommend submitting an application as soon as you find an animal you are interested in. We review applications in the order they are received.

Completed applications can be sent via email to adopt@jcapl.org , faxed to 919-300-5524 or delivered in person by visiting us at one of our adoption events on Saturdays at Petsmart in Garner (White Oak Shopping Center).

We will contact you as soon as possible once we receive your application for Kio.

Thanks for thinking adoption!

Why Adoption is a Great Option

Kio, a Smithfield American Eskimo Dog dog was adopted! Here's how you can benefit by looking at adoption as an option to buying a American Eskimo Dog for sale in Smithfield, or seeking a American Eskimo Dog dog from a breeder in Smithfield.

  1. Rescues and shelter volunteers in Smithfield 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 Smithfield 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 American Eskimo Dog breeders who help with American Eskimo Dog rescue. One puppy or kitten adopted in Smithfield paves the way for another one to be saved.
