Meet Skippy

You can’t help but smile at this adorable face. Little Skippy. This cutie will hypnotize you with his expressive eyes. (Don’t say we didn’t warn you!)

At 2 years old and 12 pounds, Skippy is a delightful ball of energy. This Shih Tzu mix loves running around with other dogs, squeaking on his toys (he’ll take his favorite along on walks), watching squirrels, and getting cuddles from his humans. He’s a big fan of walks and is good in the car as well.

Skippy is doing well with housebreaking and, instead of a crate, prefers to hang out in a play pen when necessary. He does not chew things he shouldn’t. Oh, and no loud noises around Skippy, as he spooks easily.

This handsome fellow wants to keep his ladies to himself. He prefers female humans and has had some difficulty adjusting to men and small children, so would do best in an all-female and older child household.

This little dude is going to make someone very, very happy. Can you do the same for him?

We love our dogs. We want happy lives for all of them and are looking for the home that provides the best fit for each dog’s individual needs. Please understand that there may be multiple families interested in this dog.

Also, please know that the breed mix listed is simply a guess. In most cases, we don’t know their background. We encourage you to base your decision on individual personality and pet qualities instead of relying on our guess.
