Skipper

Always read entire post please.
Meet Skipper! A presumed Lab mix, his older fella is 64lbs and about 8-9 years old. We won’t sugar coat it–Skipper was a grumpy old man when he arrived! He didn’t understand what all the young whippersnappers around him were always yelling about and why kids kept getting on his lawn. Now, he is settled into a nice routine and happy as a clam 🙂 Skipper is a social boy, loving affection and wants to be pet all over. He can be around other dogs politely but would really rather them mind their own business, thank you very much! He may not like to share his home with other dogs, but we would be willing to try introductions to see how they go. He may just need one that needs space and time to warm up.
