Meet Skippy, a handsome, 6-year-old,30 pound, Shetland Sheepdog mix. He has a beautiful black, tan, and white coat with loving brown eyes. Skippy can be a little shy at first, but once he gets to know you, he is as sweet as can be! He is friendly and loves to be petted. He is described as being a couch potato but enjoys going for walks and does pretty well on the leash. In his previous home Skippy was housetrained. After living in the shelter, it might take him a couple of weeks to remember all of his housetraining in his new adoptive home. Skippy was surrendered to the SPCA of Texas on May 6 because his previous owners were moving and could not take him along. He has previously lived with cats and other dogs. Did you know that you can bring your current, vaccinated dogs to the shelter to meet potential pets like Skippy? Though he loves adults, he would prefer a home without children under the age of ten. He has been neutered, Heartworm tested (he’s negative), micro-chipped, and has received his age-appropriate vaccinations! Skippy is also a V.I.P. (Very Important Pet) because he has been waiting for his new, loving family for more than 30 days, and he has a special lower adoption price! What are you waiting for? Come and meet Skippy today! You will not be disappointed! #36176
