Hello my name is Skelator, my foster family calls me Nugget. I am a mix breed pup, my foster sees Chihuahua and Terrier traits in me and i am about 5 months old I have had all of my shots including rabies. I am estimated to be about 25 pounds when i grow up. I am currently living with my foster family in Mechanicsville, Va. I get along great with my foster siblings. I have a senior dog foster sibling who we get along and play well together. I have 2 cat foster siblings. 1 is so nice we can play together, the other cat not so much, so i know to stay away from her...she is moody. One of my other foster siblings is a goat, they run fast.
I am a ball of energy. My foster family says i can go for dayyyyyyzzzzzzzzz. :) So I need a family who can hang with my extremely high energy level. My favorite things to do is play fetch in the house. I get to slide on the hardwood floors and that is so much fun. I also like to play with my foster siblings, play with all my toys ( i got so many toys), run in the backyard, run in the house ( i love to run and jump) My foster family also likes to call me wiggle butt because when i get excited my but wiggles uncontrollably. What can I say I'm a peoples puppy.
I would do best in a home with older kids, because of my extremely high energy level I can get a bit nippy when i play and if you're at my level i can play a little rough. I would also do well with a family that is looking for a second dog who can help teach me the ropes. I am an excited pee-er. If you're gone for a long time or after i first wake up i am so excited to see people i may or may not pee, a little. I would love a house with a fence but if i can run in the house that is fine with me. so i can get all of this energy out.
If your looking for a high energy level and a loving pup then that is me. :)
This dog's bio is based off the experiences of the foster and/or volunteers of OPH as well as any information that we received from the shelter or previous owner. This is very important because it means that while they may act one way in the foster’s home, you may experience something different in your home.
