Skylar | Pet of the Week

By on September 8, 2017 at 1:06 pm

Skylar is a young shepherd mix who recently completed heartworm treatment. She is housebroken, crate trained, listens well when called, and seems to get along with other dogs.

Skylar is good with the teenage boys in her foster home and is very sweet, likes to give kisses, and loves attention.

This smart girl is learning basic commands such as sit and down and loves getting treats for good behavior. Skylar will need some training in her new home so she won’t jump on people, learns how to walk nicely on a leash, and learns how to calm her energy.

She is a sweetheart and is going to be a great pet.
