Skipper's Story...
Meet Skipper, a nice medium sized boy weighing in at 39 pounds and estimated to be about 1 1/2 to 2 years old. He looks to be some type of hound/shepherd mix. His kind, gentle eyes reflect a nice dog inside. He came in as a stray and was a favorite at the pound in Tennessee that we pulled him from. He's settling in nicely at his new foster home where he has lots of other doggie friends to play with. He's very friendly with all people and likes to play, especially with the other dogs. He appears to be trustworthy in the home and knows that outside is for pottying. We see him with a family with kids, but because he is still very puppy-ish, meaning jumping and a bit mouthy, not toddler kids unless the kid is tuff and not afraid. He needs a family that will take him to puppy school for some basic training. With just a bit of guidance and stability, this guy has all the makings to become a super family dog.

Skipper's adoption fee of $300 includes vet exam, heartworm test, DAPP (distemper combo) combination, Bordetella vaccination, Rabies vaccination, heartworm preventative, routine deworming, flea/tick preventative, microchip and neuter.

Why Adoption is a Great Option
