My story

LIttle Skiddles....well he is missing a front tooth, and if you ask...he will smile and show you...haha. Just a loverboy and wants to be your ONLY ONE. He is loyal and loving. He was abused terribly prior to coming to us. Left crated alot it seems. Rescued from what appeared to be dog fighting ring.
He has scarring at many places on his little body. Loves to play in the creek. He is starved for love, so will hang with you alot if you allow. He should definately be the only pet, it seems he is fearful and other dogs know this and use it against him. He chases cats and smaller animals and reported has killed a duck. Likes most humans and is friendly with them
. He likes outside during the day, loves to be with you wherever you are, is crate trained, loves to ride, and can certainly be a stricktly professional rug protector, especially if the rug is next to your bed or in from ot the TV...he likes inside anytime with you. And we really have NO IDEA what his breed mix is nor his exact age. He was rescued from the streets. He loves the water and will literally go fishing and sometimes even catch one.

Our fees vary depending on the type of animal, age, and if applicable, any special needs animals will have amended adoption fees. We may require a vet reference if you have previously owned a pet, or you may be ask to participate in a quick and simple dog care class and/or volunteer here at the shelter for support. We also provide virtual adoptions for our sanctuary division animals who remain here but you get to visit, get updates via internet, and you help provide necessary provisions just for that particular animal, so if you cant have one where you live but still want to be a part of something very rewarding and heartfelt this option may be for you.
