Skelly came to Best Friends with a litter of puppies, and was an extremely protective mother. She has maintained her protectiveness long after her puppies have gone to their forever homes. She loves and protects her doggie roommate, her toys, her food and her room. Skelly was feral when she came to the Sanctuary and most likely has never lived in a home before. She is still very shy with new people and is considered a flight risk. She 'spooky' barks when she is uncomfortable, and will bite if she is pushed too far. But although Skelly is shy and fearful with people, if you work to earn her trust she will be the most loyal friend you could ever ask for.

Skelly loves the outdoors and going for walks. She is very intelligent, curious, and food motivated. She bonds very closely with other dogs and enjoys collecting toys. Skelly can be very difficult with medical handling. She also does not get into the car yet, but she is working on it. Her caregivers are helping her build relationships with people through hand feeding and taking her for walks. Skelly was born in 2014 and came to the Sanctuary from a Best Friends No More Homeless Pets Network Partner shelter. She would do best in a home with another social dog. She's a funny girl and, despite her fear, seems curious and willing to learn about people.
