Meet Skipper

Skipper and Gilligan came to us as very terrified puppies at about 3 months old. Both boys have been in a loving, wonderful, and patient foster home that has been working with them non stop to try and socialize them. They are really coming around but need a lot of patience and a low-traffic, home. They are about 9 months now and still very scared of almost everything but they have made progress.
They do seem to bond more comfortably with females, however, their foster parent is a woman and they have now warmed up to her husband. Skipper and Gilligan need to be adopted together as they are very bonded and this will help them adjust. These pups are not for first time dog owners, they will probably always be slow to adjust to new scenarios. A confident owner will greatly help push them to success to at least be able to live comfortably in a home environment.
These boys need a QUIET home with NO young children in the household. They would be great for someone that works from home or is retired. . These 2 boys had a really rough start to life and they just need a home that understands each of them. We will provide you plenty of training/reading material to help with their transition as well as a reference to a wonderful dog trainer here locally. Gilligan and Skipper will be met offsite at the foster home for the least stressful meet and greet.
