A dog named Skittles has been waiting for someone to adopt him from the Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter in Wantagh, New York, for over 1,000 days. Is there anyone out there who will ever give this dog a home?

Skittles is just six years of age and he has been homeless since 2019. This week, Skittles’ very own Facebook page shared some information about the homeless pooch:

When he came in he was very underweight and nervous of new people and things. Today he is a happy, healthy boy and is looking for his forever home! This fetch loving boy has presented with some guarding behaviors so he needs a dog experienced home with children over the age of 17 years to help him work through his issues. Skittles is under socialized with other dogs so he would need a very specific dog companion or a solo dog home.

Noting that he knows many commands and is friendly with people.

Will you please help Skittles find a home? You can find (and please share!) his Facebook page here.

Shelter phone number: (516) 785-5220
