This sweet, loving, handsome old fellow makes for the greatest companion! Skipper is one of the kindest gentlemen you'll ever meet. Skipper loves to lounge around and sleep wherever, whenever. His nose freckles and cow spots will melt the hearts of anyone who meets this old fellow.

This sweet boy has many quirks to him. When doing his daily lounge nap, you'll often hear him snoring, yes, snoring. And quite loudly at that. Skipper is an avid food eater, and will even lay down when he's eating! Skipper loves to express his emotions with his tail and his butt, so don't be surprised if you get a light wack by his tail from time to time! His favorite pet spots are on his head. He's a classy man, he loves a good head rub, or a scratch behind the ear. His trick performance is not very strong, but he is very treat driven! This lovely lad will be easy to teach a few commands with the involvement of a treat. He's a very laid back, go with the flow type man. Long walks are not one of his strong suits, but he loves to be outside. A nice day in the sun with a good patch of grass for him to lay in will be just perfect for him. He'll often come up to anyone near him and put his paw on your lap to show that he wants attention. Sometimes, he'll throw small temper tantrums when not given the attention he wants.

Skipper loves his attention, so a home with someone that is always there to give him some head rubs will be perfect! Skipper will make for the perfect lounge buddy. Come meet him!
