Hi, my name is Skip. I'm a petite but chubby, sweet 5 year old bulldog mix who is currently being fostered with multiple other dogs in SC. My foster mom says I’m a dream, and I’ve been with her about 4 months now. She said she would like to keep me forever, but she already has quite a few dogs, and wants me to have a special home of my own.
I'm a loving, happy playful guy who needs a family to love, and I’m making up for lost time. You see, I was originally found living on a chain, which was a really hard life for a social dog like me. The good news is I’m already on my way to a better life and enjoying the comforts of home. I’m crate and housetrained, and am a very submissive boy who gets along well with everyone – kitties too!
I hope to be coming to N. VA soon and start my new life. I’ll be looking for a foster or adopter to welcome me in. I have my bags packed and am ready for the next new adventure.
Please apply today.

You can also help save dogs like this one by becoming a foster, providing a rescue dog with a temporary home and giving them the love and care they need until they are permanently adopted. Every person who fosters is directly responsible for saving the life of a dog, because we can only save as many dogs as we have foster families available to welcome them into their homes. If you think you might be interested in becoming a foster and want to learn more, please go to http://foster.ddbnova.org and fill out an application.
