Skittles in Carmichael, CA

Meet Skittles! Do you like to go for walks and throw a ball? In need of a cuddle buddy? If so, playful and affectionate Skittles just might be exactly who you’re looking for. He’s an adorable, freckle-faced, high energy, 5-year old Cavalier King Charles. He would love nothing more than to play a round of fetch and then curl up on your lap for a nice, relaxing evening. 


When he’s not busy playing ball or cuddling, his other favorite pastime is eating. He does get excited when it’s mealtime, but he’s mastered the art of sitting patiently while you’re fixing his bowl. He won’t dare move a muscle until you release him to eat, and then happily digs in. Not surprising, he weighs in at a healthy 22 lbs.

He has settled in well at his foster home, getting along just fine with his foster fur brother and sister. He had a few accidents when he first arrived, but quickly adapted to the house potty rules. He could use a little additional training, as he tends to dart out the door and greet visitors a little too enthusiastically. But Skittles is a bright guy and learns quickly, especially when motivated with a little treat. 


Skittles is healthy, neutered, and micro-chipped. Whether you are single, an empty nester, or have a family with kids, Skittles is waiting for a lap to call home. Could it be yours?  

If you have heart full of love and time to continue training this sweet boy you could be a match for Skittles.
