This guy and his brother Scooter (also posted), were found running up and down a busy highway. The owners were found and said they didn’t want them any longer and surrendered them to our rescue. Skipper was so badly matted that he couldn’t even turn his head. He would sit in the corner of the dog pen and lean back against the fence because it supported his body. I’m sure he did that because it was so uncomfortable for him to lay down. He was such a good boy too when we were shearing him…he really never moved…guess he knew we were trying to help make him feel a little better. Their owners didn’t pay them any attention and allowed them to run all over creation unattended. They will need to be taught a few manners and rules, as well as what it’s like to be a pet and what is expected of them in their new homes. He’s super sweet and has more of a quiet personality…although he is more quiet, he is the most dominant of the two. He a pretty good boy, never bothers anything…keeps his kennel fairly clean, doesn’t turn his bowls over, etc. A fenced in backyard would be ideal for him, because he will need room to run around and explore. Skipper would love nothing more than to start over with a new family that will care for him and love him like he deserves. He is 2 years old, weighs 29 pounds, has been neutered, 4DX heartworm tested and microchipped. He’s also current on all vaccinations, worming, heartworm and flea prevention. His adoption fee is $400.

Skipper is being fostered in Tennessee. Once adopted he will be transported to his pickup location by a professional dog transport company. Our rescue ships to the New England area every week and his fee does include transportation.
