About Skipper

Skipper has a pending adoption! Hi, my name is Skipper! I kind of have a little "skip" in my walk. As you can see from my pictures, I am missing my left front leg. When this wonderful rescue picked me up, I was dragging my bad leg, and it hurt a lot. They helped me get rid of the dead weight, and now I am running around full of life! I love to play fetch, and I am a very smart boy; my foster person tells me that all the time. I love to cuddle, and keep getting told that I am not a lap dog. I don't believe them, I fit very nicely on a lap. I am learning lots of fun stuff, and getting ready to move to my forever home. Will you give me that wonderful home where I keep getting stronger and happier every day?

Rover has a pending adoption! Hello! My name is Rover. I've heard that I'm a little bit small for my breed, but my foster parents told me that dynamite comes in small packaging, and man do I have an explosive personality! I am the ultimate velcro dog. I love my foster parents so much, they have to get up every so often to take me outside because I don't want to ever be away from them. I love to snuggle and get all the pets. Sometimes I am so excited to be with my humans that I cry when they love on me or when we are snuggling. I enjoy daily walks with my foster sisters, and we get along great - sometimes I play with them, but I'd rather play with my humans. I have amazing ball drive, and fetch is my favorite way to exercise! My foster parents are teaching me to "drop it," but that's really hard because my foster sisters always try to take the ball away from me! BUT, I'll do anything for a treat. I am super motivated by food/treats and am a fast learner. My other favorite game to play with my humans is tug of war, and this is my favorite game to play with my foster sisters. I have already learned a few new basic commands in just a few days, and have even learned how to walk on a leash. I would do best in a home with a family who is not going to leave me alone all day by myself while they are at work. I really love my foster family, but am looking forward to finding my forever home. show less
