Skippy's DNA test results

Skippy is a sweet boy who is almost housetrained and is used to big dogs, puppies, chickens, and little dogs. He travels well. He is not leash trained. He likes all people and seems to have no fears.

He was found running loose and no one claimed him from the shelter. Based on his behavior and lack of experience with a house, car, leash, mirrors, bowls, kitchen noises, etc, we think he belonged to a homeless person.

If you are interested in one of our dogs, please go to our website, www.orphandog.org. Many questions will be answered there. All Orphan Dogs are fostered in private homes by volunteers who graciously take time from work and home life to care for our orphans. We do not have a facility, and most dogs are transported to our scheduled Adoption Events

Our van is limited on space and because of this sometimes dogs will get time off if the van is overfull. Other arrangements may be made for meeting a dog the dog if circumstances prevent you from being able to make it to events. Remember again though, that volunteers foster dogs in their spare time so we encourage you to try to attend the events. 

If you are local to Lake County, we do make arrangements to meet dogs here in town. However, please remember that most of our dogs have been in our shelters for weeks before we pull them. We take the dogs that have not been adopted yet. If you visit the shelter, you'll get the dog before I do!
