Meet Skipper!

A 2.5-year-old Pitbull hailing from Albuquerque, NM, with a willingness to travel for a new home. His journey began uniquely, being rescued from the Bahamas as a young pup and brought to the US in search of his forever family. This adventurous start seems to have instilled in him a love for exploration and companionship!

His interests span a wide range of activities, from swimming and digging to running and playing fetch. However, Skipper's favorite pastime might be cuddling up with his favorite humans, relishing in their affection! He enjoys a variety of toys, from bones to stuffed toys to rope toys, which keep him happily occupied, especially during his favorite activities like digging and swimming.

Although he hasn't received formal obedience training, Skipper is quite clever and has learned a repertoire of commands, showcasing his intelligence. While generally easygoing, Skipper can be a bit timid around new people initially, but he warms up quickly with patience and love, revealing his affectionate nature.

When left alone for short periods, Skipper finds solace in his toys, particularly his bones, or enjoys watching the world go by if he's outdoors. Indoors, he retreats to his kennel, where he either chews on his bone or takes a nap. Skipper's ideal home would be one filled with love, safety, and happiness!

He's up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed/neutered, house-trained, and microchipped. Additionally, he gets along well with other dogs and young children, making him an excellent companion for families. With his medium energy level, Skipper thrives in a setting with a fenced-in yard where he can freely explore and play.
