**Please read Skippers bio before sending an inquiry. He came from a hoarding situation and needs a special home** Our rescue received a call about a breeder/hoarding situation, 45 dogs living in one small trailer needed immediate rescue. 8 rescue groups combined forces and rescued them all. Skipper is one of the 6 pups we rescued. All the pups were extremely undersocialized, some having zero human contact. They were all fearful and huddled in one big pile. Skipper has spent several months in foster care and we believe he is now ready for his forever home. Here are a few requirements for his forever home: *At least one very friendly, social, not overly dominant dog. Skipper feeds off other dogs and follows their lead. A social dog who is friendly to humans will help him adjust. Overly dominant or aggressive dogs will frighten him, he will hide and not come out. *A very secure yard with a 6 foot fence. *Very loving and patient humans 'Bonding' will not happen instantly. If you expect an instant connection he is not the dog for you. He will bond with the canines in the home first. Skipper had a horrible start in life, we have worked very hard to get him to adoptable status--he adores his foster family but is ready to find his forever home *Neutered *Vaccinated *Heartworm/tick fever negative *Dewormed *Groomed
