Meet Skippy (Skippyjon Bones)

My name is Skippyjon Bones and you may be familiar with my feline counterpart, Skippyjon Jones. Trust me when I say we are different, but alike in some ways. I have the ears to prove it!! Like Skippyjon Jones, I fear no bandito, my manners are mellow, I'm sweet like the Jell-o, and I get the job done, yes indeed-o! *Clap, clap* I am one tough 50-pound fella considering the life I've lived in my short 1-2 years. I came to Rescue One with a shattered back left leg that needed immediately amputated. I've been on the mend and just have a couple steps left until I can go home with my furever familio. As you can see in my pictures, I have a pretty gruesome left eye. It gets removed on 8/31/22. I will then be down a leg, and down an eye. Don't let that deter you, please!! Having only 3 legs hasn't slowed me down one bit, and I already can't see anything out of my bad eye, so it won't make much of a difference after it is gone! I know that makes me seem pretty scary, but I am the sweetest, friendliest boy. I will make a great Halloween pup, especially with my big and bright orange-brown right eye! :) I am friendly with other dogs and kiddos and would love a companion to play with at my new home. I still have some puppy energy and will definitely need a fenced yard, or plenty of leash walking/outdoor activities to get my exercise daily. I haven't been cat tested yet but could probably get along with one after proper introductions. I am still a puppy, so I really like to playfully nip to show my playfulness and affection. I don't think it hurts, and I bet after I'm neutered it will help with that, but I will need worked with on it, nonetheless. I am completely potty trained, and kennel trained. I don't like being behind bars, but this bandito knows it's only ever temporary. Since I am waiting on my neuter and eye surgery, I can't come home with you just yet, but I can definitely still be applied for! I will be ready to move in early to mid-September! Get your Halloween Pupito, just in time for the Howliday!
