Kiki was born approximately May 2015 and weighs approx 15 lbs. She is very sweet, good with other dogs, loves people, very playful and runs all over the place. She loves to snuggle up on the sofa and completely covers herself in the blanket in her bed. She loves to go for long walks, is really good in the car and likes to be with you all the time. She was an owner surrender as their landlord would not allow them to keep her. At the shelter, she was in the back of the cage and shaking. Once out of the shelter, she was completely a different happy dog.

Save a Life, Be a Foster

Skittles was born approx May 2013. She is small weighing 12 lbs, is sweet, affectionate and gets along with dogs in her home. She would probably prefer to be an only dog. She is shy and needs to get comfortable with you but once she is, she loves to be with you. She is independent and is low maintenance. No small kids. She is a momma we rescued from the shelter with her 4 2 1/2 week old puppies, Tootsie, Razzle, Taffy, and Snickers.
If you would like to foster Skittles, please email us at
