    Skylar

    Male 20.4 months Level 4.0

    Skylar is going to be a big boy and already has a deep male bark.  He is going to require a lot of socialization and good solid training.  He has great eye focus and LOVES to PLAY!!  He is learning how to meet new dogs appropriately.  Exposing him to lots of new things will be fun for him and his forever family.  We are just getting to know him so check back in for more information soon.

All puppies bark incessantly, dig, and destroy things if they are left alone for long periods of time, and thus, need to be with owners who do not leave them alone for long hours. More
