Skippy is house trained and leash trained and is looking forward to a new situation. He appears to be mixed with some type of hound Â blood hound or basset hound - because he has an exceptional nose and shows a natural ability to track. He also demonstrates some hound-type behaviors. If you see his coat in the right light, you can see a hint of gold or brown beneath the black lab outer coat. He is also very definitely part black Lab. Skippy needs some attention everyday and really enjoys going for walks and playing any sort of game that engages his nose. I would not recommend letting Skippy run off leash in an area not enclosed because he will get the scent of something and run off to track it, not paying any attention if he is called. But other than that he shows great attention and wants to please. Skippy is very bright and willing to learn and would make a great pet for the right situation.
