About Sky

Adoption Fee: $350.00

Hi! I'm Sky! I'm just a big goofy two year old, 60 lbs., shepherd mix pup who will love you a lot...especially if you give me YUMMY treats!! I don't discriminate - any treat will do, just please don't give me treats around other furry friends, I don't like to share. They're just so good!!

Sky is now in a foster home, so we are learning a lot more about him.  We are figuring out what kind of home would be best for him.   Sky needs a home with someone who will be with him most of the time to keep him company (other dogs are not enough).  Sky has all of the qualities that you want in a great dog: he is friendly, affectionate, not aggressive, housetrained, listens pretty well, good with kids, not a barker, good in the car, gets along well with other dogs and cats, a pretty easy walk, etc., etc.  All around nice dog and brilliant companion.  

BUT, Sky has separation anxiety and if the big guy is left alone in a house/room he will probably get into trouble.  BUT (again) once you see what a cool dog Sky is, you will gladly do what you can to help him with his “issue”.  PAW is working with Sky and his foster family to help figure him out.  We have taken him to a behaviorist vet and he now has some meds to help to calm the anxiety that plagues him when he is alone.  Sky is currently doing well when left alone in a crate for a couple of hours at a time. 

Sky needs a lifestyle where someone is with him most of the time so they can enjoy each other’s company.  Best candidates: active retired folks would be perfect – that’s his foster environment.  Full-time telecommuters, Sky can help sooth you through your work day.  Bring your dog to work opportunities – these seem to be popping up.  Sky would definitely be a big hit at the coffee pot.  Stay-at-home families that would love beautiful Sky around their home. 

Sky is not for everyone but if you are among the stay-with-him candidates, you will get an outstanding dog.  Come to an adoption show and see him, give him some treats.
