A month ago, I received an inquiry on Skittles, my foster Papillon. The inquiry came from Jen, a woman who lives in Louisiana. Usually I don't consider out of state applications, because if the adoption doesn't work out and the adopter decides they don't want to bother getting the dog back to me, the dog ends up in a shelter somewhere very far away, and may not have a happy ending. But every once in awhile I decide it is worth it to take a chance on an out of state adoption, and so far those adoptions have all worked out great. In this case, Jen had an easy time convincing me to give her a shot. Not only is she a professional dog trainer, but she also has family in my area and visits often, so she should be able to bring Skittles back to me without a problem if it became necessary. The main reason that I agreed to her adopting Skittles, is because Jen competes in disc dog competitions around the country, and she was looking for a small dog to compete in a special category called "micro dogs".
