Skippy was rescued from the Baldwin Park Shelter. Skippy has a displaced corneal lens over his left eye which leaves him sight impaired in the left eye. There is no medical treatment to correct the condition. Skippy is also borderlining Cushing's Disease; however, we have opted not to medicate him with the treatments at this time as the treatment for Cushing's is much like Chemo and Skippy does not exhibit any symptoms of the disease at this time. Skippy was in pretty bad shape when we rescued him and is coming around nicely. Skippy has a peculiar personality and is not a dog that wants to cuddle or be on your lap; however, when he decides you are his person, he won't let you out of his sight! With time to earn your trust, he will let you brush him, but it took us a while to get to that point. Skippy needs a person who is familiar with Eskies and who is patient. Skippy obsesses over playing ball and will happily even throw the ball for himself. Skippy would do best in a home with no small children. Skippy is vaccinated, microchipped and neutered.
