How does this photo represent the theme – Life is Better Together?
Skittles was found trapped in a cement drainage hole on a busy street. Rope tied around her body was attached to a broken lawn chair and an empty gallon jug. The milk jug was lodged in the drainage hole, preventing her movement. A kind soul pulled her out and brought her to Bulverde Area Humane Society, a no-kill shelter.

The caretakers immediately sensed she was special. Like all new arrivals, she was evaluated by a veterinarian, brought current on shots and spayed. She was bathed and a groomer was brought to the shelter to deal with her badly matted fur.

Skittles was adopted by a shelter volunteer and lives with another BAHS rescue, a Labrador. Although the Labrador is four times her weight, they happily chase each other around the yard!

Skittles also has a little boy to call her own, an only child who loves her dearly. He calls her his “sister dog.” She’s brought joy to our home with her big heart and happy, playful nature. All she wants is a warm lap, to give special "wake up" kisses, and to be with her family. She loves laps, car rides, and camping trips.

Skittles’ story is all too common --a “throw away dog” that an owner no longer wanted and dumped. If it weren’t for the kindness of a stranger and support of Bulverde Area Humane Society, this little dog might have perished. Life truly is better together with our furry friends.
