found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, good with dogs, and not good with cats.
Ahoy matey! The name's Skipper, most call me Skip or Skippy. I like to think of myself as a happy-go-lucky kinda guy. It's the little things that make me happy, like getting my chin scratched or giving you a few kisses as I settle down next to you.
Here's my story: Three months ago, I was adopted into a nice family with another dog, an older lad. We moved from an apartment to a house and unlike most cases, it seemed the other gentleman wasn't too keen on having me around in his new home. Some bullying ensued on his part and my new mom thought it best to surrender me to my new foster family so that I wouldn't be a victim of the lad's bullying. Fine by me!
My foster family picked me up and there was even talk about renaming me to Billy Howliday for some time because I reminded them of a Billy Goat in the car. Since then, I've been riding in the car in my crate because it made my foster parents nervous. Very well, doesn't bother me any, just give me something to chew on while I'm in there. The Howliday comes from my reactivity to cats. What's with these felines? I'm just not sure about them. I'd prefer for my forever home to be cat-free.
All 13 lbs. of me loves to hang in my Captain's Quarters, aka my crate. It's comfy in there. My foster family covers my Quarters with a sheet at night and it gets very den-like. It soothes me after a long day of playing and chewing on elk antlers. Foster parents even started putting my breakfast and dinner in there. Once in a while, cookies appear in my Quarters, too!
Being the Skipper that I am, I know how to sit, stay, and dance. We're working on walking nicely and not pulling. I'm a big fan of the dog park and all the lads there.
So what do you say? Got room on your ship for me?
Skip’s adoption fee is $250 and he is being fostered in southeastern Wisconsin. Because all our Cupids are fostered in private homes, an approved application MUST be on file before proceeding with a meet-and-greet. The online application can be found at http://www.caninecupids.org/adopt-.html.

Our Thoughts on Visual Breed Identification
Visual breed identification in dogs is unreliable. For most of our adoptable Cupids we are only guessing at the predominant breed or breed mix. We think it’s most important is to get to know each dog as an individual! We then do our best to describe each of our adoptable Cupids based on their personalities in order to determine whether they’ll make good companions based on prospective adopters’ lifestyles. Dog behavior is not exclusive to breed — it’s a complex mix of nature and nurture.
