Skipper! What a friendly, energetic, charming, and loving young man. We think he may be part Deer Head Chihuahua because he is a bit taller than your average Chi (he’s kind of all legs!) and his head doesn’t really look like an apple :-) He loves to play with his chew toys, wrestle with his canine siblings, and snuggle in our laps or under the covers. Skip needs brother(s) or sister(s) who like to goof around as much as he does playing tug of war or chase. We have not seen him around cats so we’re not sure how he would react, but we suspect he would just want to play with them too! He loves to go on walks and is a bit notorious for scooting out an open door. If no one is around to play with, he can pass the time carrying his toys from one end of the house to the other or throwing them up in the air. Sometimes just snoozing in a lap is a great way for him to spend his time. He does love his people! He’s crate trained and house-trained; can sit, stay, and hop in his crate to eat dinner. There is an old injury that was not properly treated so he has a bit of a limp, but you wouldn’t know it most times because it doesn’t slow him down! Skipper is a smart little guy and aims to please. When he looks at you with those big, loving, brown eyes, it just melts your heart!
