Skipper is a one person dog. He attaches to one person and gives his all to that person, but just tolerates other people coming in and out of the home. It takes Skipper a while to bond with a new special person in his life. He has to be given his space, and in a day or so he will come to you. When he is ready for a new person in his life, he is very affectionate and loyal.
Skipper has been mentored by a certified behavior consultant, Jack Grever at Longshot Farms. Jack is willing to guide Skipper's adopter in the proper methods to achieve a happy home with Skipper.
Skipper is housetrained and walks well on a leash. He is not at all destructive in the home, and is trustworthy to be left out when you have to be gone. Skipper is also food oriented, which is helpful in his training.
Skipper is neutered, microchipped, current on his Rabies, DHP/Parvo, and Bordetella, tested negative for Heartworms, and is on Hearworm prevention
Skipper's adoption fee is $200.00.
Forever Home Canine Rescue offers a 3-week trial adoption period with all our adoptions, just to be sure that the pet is a good match for the adoptive family. The fee is refunded if the adoption does not work out within the trial period. We want to be sure that each of our pets will have the perfect “forever” home!
FHCR does adopt out-of-state, but we never 'ship' or 'transport' our pets. An approved adopter must come to NC to meet their new canine companion and then take him/her back home with them.
