Skipper is an energetic pup who’s always wagging his tail. As a fast learner, he’s eager to please and loves to be praised. Skipper’s mother dog, a neglected pet without proper shelter, gave birth to a litter of four under an outdoor water tank on the coldest recorded temperature in Taiwan. Luckily all five dogs were rescued by a Good Samaritan who often fed strays. Skipper is looking for a puppy experienced outdoorsy family who can take him to basic obedience school, not leave him home alone for extended periods, and without small kids. Skipper is also an avid swimmer and would love to visit the beach and ocean one day!
