Meet Skip! He’s a fantastic dog that loves others dogs and people. Skip was surrendered to Dallas Animal Services in early February and spent nearly two months before he found a foster. His foster parents aren’t quite sure why, because he’s such a friendly and affectionate dog and clearly loves being part of a family. And he’s got the doggie eyes down pat! He’s great with his four foster siblings and made himself just another fur kid within a day.
He’s learned all about things like “chewies” (the nightly dental chew after dinner), and walks around the neighborhood. Skip is great on a leash and doesn’t constantly pull. Although he does like squirrels, but that’s just all part of being a dog, right?
Skip seems to really enjoy playing with smaller dogs. He stayed with a two-year old Jack Russell Terrier for nearly a week and loved playing with him (and didn't even get upset when the little dog barked right in his face). Skip also seems to be interested in and gentle with children. He's very patient and doesn't mind playing dress up!â
He’s mastered the art of rearranging loose pillows on the couch, which has earned him the nickname of “Couch Monster”. And he’s good in his crate, especially when a cow hoof stuffed with peanut butter is involved ;). He beds down in his blankets and pillows and hasn’t torn anything up while in his crate. He’s also great about baths AND getting his nails trimmed!
Skip would do well in a home with other dogs, or would be a great solo dog provided his new family/person could provide him with enough attention. He’s laid back but also active, silly, and loves getting out and about. Skip should not be in a home with cats, however. He’s just a little too interested (maybe he thinks they’re squirrels, or maybe he’s just never been around them).
Does Skip sound like the perfect pup for you?
