Meet Skye, a New Hope Cattle Dog Available For Adoption


 Meet Skye


**Special Needs** My name is Skye and I was rescued from Roswell, New Mexico where I was picked up as a stray who was killing chickens. Eek! I was very sick in the shelter there and I was very sick when I arrived in Colorado. After a trip to the ER, I started my medicine but my respiratory issues didn’t resolve. My foster mom finally opened my mouth and discovered I had a cleft palate. Food and fluid had been moving back and forth between my mouth and my nose and it caused a lot of medical issues for me. Luckily, when I was spayed, my cleft palate was repaired. I am still in the recovery stage and my foster mom is seeing improvement every day but I might have long-term special needs. I am looking for an adopter who is interested in and committed to helping me further my recovery, forever. I am a heavy breather, my nose is runny, I might spit up my food and there is a slight odor of skunk on my head. Do you love me yet? I am also loving and happy. I get along well with the other dogs in my home and I love people. I also LOVE walking. It is important that I maintain a daily walking regimen because it makes me happy and it heals my body. I have accepted that not everyone will want to adopt me. Please know that you can still be part of my journey by making a donation for my care to New Hope Cattle Dog Rescue. Thank you to Friends of Roswell Animals and Humane Society of Boulder Valley for being part of my journey and thank you to NHCDR for not giving up on me. I will be at the 10/9 adoption event if you want to meet me!
