Meet handsome Skippy!! Skippy is a lovely boxer-mix boy who came to us from a NC shelter. This boy thinks he is a lap dog -- and we are looking for the perfect lap for him for all of his days!!!
Skippy is doing great in foster care. He is being fostered with two other adult male dogs, and he loves playing with the younger adult of the family. We think Skippy would do great in a home with another dog to have a playmate. However, he is such a people-oriented love-bug, we feel he'd also do well as a solo dog in the right home.
Due to Skippy's size and energy level, we are seeking a home without young/tiny children (as he is big... and goofy.... and still needs to learn manners, like not jumping up...) His foster parents are working on that, of course, but his adoptive family would need to be committed to continuing Skippy's training. He is a happy boy and wanting to please... So, with good leadership, Skippy will shine!
Also, as to breed, our best assessment is that Skippy is a boxer mix -- but we can't guarantee that... and, there could also be some kind of scruffy terrier in there. We just do NOT know... He is a mix and a sweetie; that's all we can say for sure!! And, right now, he weighs in at about 60 lbs.
Skippy was neutered on 3/24 and arrived in his NY foster home on 4/11 with a pretty seamless transition, meeting his two male canine foster brothers and settling in nicely. This sweet boy is ready for his forever home -- where his family will love him for the wonderful dog he is and nurture him to blossom to become the amazing dog he is meant to be!!
Best suited in a cat-free home.
