He is about 8 years old we think. He tries to get along with the other dogs here, but they dont really like him. He does ok with the free range cats, but not sure how he would do elsewhere. HE is very sweet, seems to have been abused or neglected, cowers when you first pet him, warms up after a couple of minutes, then wants to be a couch potato. He is missing a front tooth, and if you ask he will show you with a big smile and a tail wag. He is a bit chunky, and we haven no idea what mix he really is, but he is about 38 pounds and less than knee high. Someone has hit this baby I when you first try to pet he seems to think you are going to slap him) so you talk sweet and move slow and he just melts after he figures out you are a nice human and he so much enjoys the attention after he feels safe. He needs a dog owner with a soft voice, kind hand and patience in a quiet environment and to be the ony animal, with a lot of attention to be given. He is really a sweet sweet sweet soul. HE may have been stolen and then used as a bait dog but escaped, not sure, he likes other dogs,normally, they just mostly dont like him. He did have a few dog friends here that were about size and older as well, but they found homes, so now Skiddles is by himself again.
