Skip escaped from a trainer who took him from us to help him get over his skittishness. That same day the trainer lost Skip and we tried for 8 months to catch him while he was living in the woods. Skip is finally back and safe with us. Skip needs a lot of special time and care.
3.17.22 foster update: Skip is on his 3rd week in a home and is making great strides!
He is walking on leash around the block at night when things are quiet. He’s a very easy dog inside the home. He loves other dogs so we’d love to get him into a foster/adopter with a friendly confident dog that he could follow around. Skip was ok around my house cat. If you intruduce a cat and dog you must do it with care and easy introduction
He’s very sweet and gentle. Looking for a person that will continue to work with him to help him to be the confident dog he’ll be one day!
Skip came to us from a local kill shelter. If you've never had a Hound before, they are super sweet dogs who are sensitive to their owners' emotions and mannerisms. They want to be a part of their human activities, and afterward, they are very happy to hang with their humans on their couch.
