Skipper is very sweet, loving and playful. He wants to be loved and appreciated. He is smart and fast learner.
Skipper has medium energy level. He enjoys playing and walking, but he is not hyper. Skipper is not a morning person and prefers to sleep in. Skipper does need his daily walks. Skipper loves to play with other dogs.
Skipper is 100% house broken. Skipper might get grumpy when he is afraid or tired. The best way to calm him is to comfort him like a baby, hold him tight, tap him gently and comforting him with loving voice, reassure him that everything is fine. It's NOT a good idea to keep him in a cage as a punishment.
Skipper needs a very loving home. It's important for Skipper to feel loved and disciplined only with love, not punishment. He learns by comfort and love, not by fear.
Skipper was adopted in 2016 but a family circumstance has him looking for another home.
