At 9 and a half years old, some might say he has special needs, we say he is simply special!  Skippy has a condition called Ataxia and it causes him to suffer from body jerks and bobbing. It may remind you of the symptoms similar to Parkinson's and may be the result of surviving distemper as a baby. 

Skippy is such a happy, playful and affectionate pup and everyone that meets him falls in love. His foster mom and dad dote on him and they are helping to provide Skippy with the very best life that he deserves.

Skippy's condition does require ongoing medical care. Your sponsorship donations will help offset his expenses. Won't you consider helping him out a little?
