Skippy, aka Gentle Ben, lost his caregiver to death. He is a laidback, quiet boy who just loves to go for walks and car rides - he is wonderful in the car. Take him for a walk a day, feed him and love him, and he won't ask for anything more. Skippy is going to be a very easy dog to enjoy. He was nicknamed "Gentle Ben" for his wonderful personality. He seems to get along with other dogs as long as they are fine with him, I don't think cats would be a problem but kids should be at least 12 years old due to his age. Skippy is going in for a makeover/groom by the time this goes to press - he will be one handsome guy. All his vetting is done and he has been heartworm tested negative. Now all he needs is that home for Christmas.
