Foster Home Feedback 

      Skittles needs a home with No other pets, No children, and Must have a fenced-in yard 

3/2/21: Skittles is such a wonderfully nice guest.  She still does great in my apartment while I work, she is able to stay home alone all day with no issues. Skittles has not had any accidents, and she has not destroyed any human items. Her favorite inside toy right now is a stuffed lizard. She takes her sweet time ripping up stuffed toys, which is nice, compared to my previous larger foster dogs who destroyed toys in minutes. Skittles would prefer to go outside and play fetch for playtime, anyhow. She is a master at fetch, I would say the best. She is hoping her new best friend(s) have a nice fenced yard to play in. 

Skittles is not an in-your-face type of dog. She would generally prefer to lay down by herself on her bed or on the couch. Once every now and then, she will want some attention or cuddle time and it is absolutely adorable. She will tuck her head into your neck and just relax when she decides it is time to cuddle. It took Skittles a little time for her to get as comfortable as she is now, but the wait was well worth it. I hope she doesn't have to wait too much longer to start settling into her forever home.

1/3/21: Skittles has been really great, she loves to play but she can also be a very lazy dog that sleeps the day away. I do not kennel her when I am gone and she has not had any accidents or ruined anything! She has a stuffed carrot that she absolutely adores right now. She just gently nibbles on it and carries it around with her, it has a squeaker in it but she doesn't even play hard enough to make a peep. Skittles also absolutely loves playing fetch and she plays very nice when we do play, and is very good at dropping toys.  

Skittles has been doing great meeting new people. She has had a couple of adoption meets, she stayed the weekend at another foster's home, she has even been going to the shelter to help me train in new volunteers! Skittles loves car rides and she rides really well in the car. Thank you for considering this sweet girl.

11/22/2020:  Skittles has had a little more difficult path than most dogs have to take at her age. She contracted parvovirus at 5 weeks old so she did not get the socialization that most dogs get in the first year of their life. She can be nervous about meeting new people. Skittles is getting more comfortable about meeting and seeing people every day she spends with me though. I expect the improvements to continue. We are working hard on clicker training and keeping her attention, on walks or any time there is a curious noise outside.

 Skittles is really great in the house. She spends the day snoozing or chewing on a bone, while I am at work and generally remains calm while I am home. She doesn't destroy anything when she is left alone. Skittles has had no accidents in the month or so that I have been fostering her. She will go into her kennel willingly but she would prefer to not be in there. We are working on making the kennel a positive space that she can go to and feel safe.

Skittles absolutely loves to go exploring and sniffing around on walks. She really loves to play fetch as well and she plays very nicely. She rides fantastically in the car. Skittles REALLY needs someone to continue her training to keep her comfortable.
