Looking for a best buddy? Someone to follow you around the house or just to be near you? Maybe someone you can have long conversations with and really feel like he gets you on a deeper level? Then check out Skip!
Skip is a super laid back dude, with a dash of silly at times, who just wants to be part of the family and please you. He will even let you dress him up in hats and costumes! He is very polite, asking nicely with his soulful doggy eyes if he can please sit with you on the couch. He’s mastered the art of rearranging loose pillows which has earned him the nickname of “Couch Monster”.
Skip is potty trained, crate trained (although it's not really needed), doggy door trained, and does well on a leash. He may not know a lot of commands, but he is very good at reading your intent and what you want him to do - and he falls into new routines with ease. He is active and loves getting out and about on walks, but doesn’t need a crazy amount of exercise to be happy.
Skip loves other dogs. When he first meets them, especially if he is on a leash, he can come across as a bit cautious - but within a couple of minutes he is more relaxed with a full tail wag. He does exceptionally well with small dogs! Skip has even had a dog bark right in his face, and he just let him! Soon after they were playing together. As good as he is with other dogs, Skip does not do well with cats and needs to go to a kitty-free home.
Does Skip sound like the perfect pup for you? He sure would like to meet you!
