Regular readers of this site know that my wife and I are involved with Planned Pethood, an animal rescue organization in Northwest Ohio. Pictured on your left is Skip, a 10-pound male Maltese-Shih Tzu mix.
Skip is only 5 months old, so we are working on housebreaking him. So far he seems quite willing to do his business outside, but he has had a few accidents since we picked him up Saturday. Skip likes to chew on rawhide, but has shown no proclivity to engage in undesirable chewing behaviors.
I have yet to hear Skip bark, though he does whimper a bit if I am in another room, such as the restroom with the door shut. He gets along well with our other dogs, and seems more inclined to be a friend than a rival to them. Our Puggle Eddie Haskell - who is notorious for his rowdy behavior with new dogs - seems to be cutting Skip some slack, which is an indicator that Skip can get along with any dog.
In short, Skip is a sweet little dog who enjoys the company of people, and whose easygoing demeanor makes him a desirable pet for adoption.
For more information on adopting Skip, or any other wonderful rescue dogs, see the Planned Pethood website.
