Skippy is a very friendly and outgoing 1 year-old whose breed mix is truly anyone’s guess. This magnificent mutt found himself homeless at an overcrowded rural county dog shelter and made the trip to Canine Lifeline so he could enjoy life in a foster home while he searched for a permanent new home. We were impressed the day we first met Skippy as he had a great demeanor—calm and gentle for a young dog plus he would sit nicely for a treat. While we don’t know anything about his previous life, it appears that someone did spend some time working with Skippy. He gets along very well with other dogs and enjoys playing chase and wrestling with his fellow foster dogs. He settles down nicely in his crate for a nap and a chewie after playtime is over and keeps his crate spotless. He may be housetrained too although we can’t guarantee that. Skippy does pull on a leash so will do well with an Easy Walk Harness as he works on his leash skills. During his photo shoot, we found that Skippy loves toys of all kinds so is easily entertained. This sweet boy is eager to make a fresh start with a new family and is sure to be an outstanding companion in his new home. Skippy has a very deep bark which sounds like it’s coming from a much bigger dog so who knows what’s in his family tree! Skippy weighs about 28 pounds and his adoption fee is $250. He’s neutered, heartworm negative and on monthly preventative, up to date on vaccinations 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.
