Dogs Needing Homes


Breed: Pomeranian Miniature Pinscher

Age: Adult
Sex: Male
Size: Small
Description: Skippy is a min-pin pom mix, born on Feb 28, 2006. He was rescued from an animal control facility in rural Iowa (dropped off because his person was moving). The workers there fell in love with him and his brother, Dueces, and jumped through hoops to get him to Small Dog Rescue.

He is doing so well in his new foster home. He gets along great with the 2 resident dogs and 2 resident cats. Skippy loves to snuggle and enjoys being held or to just sit on your lap! He also loves to bury under the covers at night. He's comfortable sleeping in bed OR in his kennel. This little guy (weighs about 10 lbs.) is just a sweetheart. You can’t help but fall in love with him. He’s a quick learner, already learning how to sit for treats and food. He is housebroken.

Skippy warmed up very quickly to his foster family after being a bit shy the first day. He likes to follow his foster mom around the house & minds very well when told to kennel up. He gives out little nose kisses and loves to chew on bones. He's very comfortable going outside in the fenced yard and rarely barks.

Did you know that Black Dogs are generally the last to be adopted and are euthanised in shelters in much larger numbers? People may consider them too “plain”, think they are menacing, or simply don’t notice them because their dark color makes them disappear in their kennels. Those involved in animal welfare have dubbed this phenomena "Black Dog Syndrome."

Please don't overlook Skippy because of his color - he would make a wonderful companion!

Skippy is neutered, up to date on shots, heart worm negative, wormed, and micro-chipped. His adoption fee is $325.
