Looking for the perfect pup? We think we’ve found him in our four month-old Collie mix boy named Skip. This wonderful youngster found himself homeless at a county dog shelter and was treated for a hot spot on his back before making the trip to Canine Lifeline to find himself a terrific new family. For a kid, Skip has quite a calm, gentle demeanor. He loves people and other dogs and is very playful but not at all hyper. He settles down nicely for a snooze in his crate once playtime is over. Skip also walks very nicely on a leash for a puppy and will pee and poop almost immediately when taken outside. While we can’t guarantee that he’s housetrained, he’s definitely headed in the right direction and with some positive training in his new home, should soon have the house rules mastered. Skip posed perfectly for his photos and relished all the attention that came his way during that process. This wonderful pup is looking for a home where his family will be around much of the time so they can provide lots of daily attention, training, and playtime for him. We can’t wait to see this great pup living life to his full potential in his new home. Skip weighs about 32 pounds currently and will likely be 60+ pounds once full-grown. His adoption fee is $400. He’s neutered, on monthly heartworm preventative, up to date on vaccinations for his age including bivalent canine influenza, wormed, on flea and tick preventative, and microchipped. As part of the adoption process, all adopters must commit to a two-week adjustment period to make sure it’s a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email if you’re interested in Skip. An approved application is required before we schedule meets with any of our dogs. Please note that we don’t place our dogs in homes with children under 7 years of age.
