Skippy is a 2-year old, 70-pound hound mix.  Once he has gotten some energy out at the beginning of his walk, he calms down and becomes more attentive towards his walker. He is just so excited to be going out and doing things when first starting out. Having a fenced-in yard where he can bounce off some of his energy would be helpful for him.    

Skippy loves to get belly rubs and have long play sessions.  He is still a young dog and needs as much exercise and play as someone is willing to do with him.   Swimming is something he loves to do as well as playing with his stuffed animals, which he will take outside with him. He’s a smart dog and an excellent puzzle toy solver. Skippy is happiest when he gets a  lot of mental stimulation.

Skippy does well with other socialized dogs, but has a strong prey drive for cats and birds.  Kids in his family should be 10 or over and respectful of his food space.
