Meet SKIPPY! This precious pup is a 1 year old, male, 20 lb, Beagle / Jack Russell Terrier mix (guess). Skippy is a super happy and sweet boy! He is great with other dogs (lives with 2 others), great with people and kids, and is housetrained. Skippy came from a kill-facility in Kentucky where he was on the list to be euthanized. We were told that he "had an odd gait at times" from a "leg injury", but was fine. When he arrived, it was obvious that there was something else going on. This darling boy shakes all over, but it is mostly concentrated in his hind quarters. It gets worse when he is excited or nervous, but it does calm down. In any case, he is not bothered by it AT ALL! He is super playful, LOVES to go on long walks and when he runs it is the cutest thing EVER because his bum bounces to and fro down the street, and is a huge snuggler! Skippy recently saw a Neurologist who recommended an MRI (paid for by LLR) for a more definitive diagnosis and to see if anything can be done for his condition, but she agreed that he is a wonderful pup that will make a fun and loving addition to a family. He will bring you joy and giggles! Fill out our application right away, so you can be Skippy's lucky Forever Family!
***TRAINING IS MANDATORY FOR ALL LLR ADOPTABLES!!
NOTE: We do NOT adopt out of state. Our range is no further than 50 miles from Chicago. This is because we PERSONALLY do home visits for every single dog / puppy. Exceptions ONLY in certain cases where a sweetie has issues (medical / behavioral / special needs) and we have had him / her for a longer time. We will then travel to the Moon for a Forever Family!
