Name: Skeeter
Age: 13 weeks
Breed: Greyhound x Saluki.
Can I live with Children: Older 10+
Can I live with cats: No
Can I live with other dogs:yes
Fostered In: Wirral, Merseyside


Other Information

Skeeter is one of a litter of pups that came into. As these little souls were living outside I am so pleased that we were able to get them

Skeeter came in with a suspected Liver shunt. He has tested negative for which is fantastic news. He does seem much better and apart from a couple of incidents seems to be doing much better. It may be his problems were caused by a severe worm infestation.

He is a very confident pup that has a tendency to mouth. This is being worked on by his foster Mum but for this reason we feel that he would be best in a home with older children.

He is crate trained, has a healthy appetite but seems to be growing up instead of out. He will into his body with age. He is house trained, but will need some further guidance in his new home

Skeeter will be looking for a home with no cats as he has a very high prey drive. He would like another dog to play rough and tumble with, but would alternatively like to have the 1:1 attention of his human.

Skeeter is vaccinated and micro chipped, but will need to be neutered when old enough


Meet Skeeter at 8 weeks



Check out those legs!!



Skeeter at 13 weeks

Under the radiator, his favorite place



Best Friends (most of the time)



It’s a short trip to the dog minder but he slobbers and does not like the car, although he did go quiet when he found a crisp packet (not mine)



Please come to Friends of the Animals forum for further updates and photo’s of the lovely Skeeter http://foa-rct.proboards.com/index.cgi?board=dogs&action=display&thread=9893&page=2

As with all puppies it is a requirement of adoption that all puppies will be neutered at 6 months at your expense.

A voucher will be given at the time of adoption for a refund of £40 when he is neutered

Somehow this incredibly sweet boy is still waiting for a home. Here is an update Skeeter's foster mum and dog minder have put together so you can see just how special this little man is:

He regularly plays well with children of ages 7 and 10. Skeeter meets and plays with other dogs well when out and will become submissive if a dog gets too bouncy which is in complete contrast to how he behaves with the dogs at home with whom he jumps on and hangs off! The dogs do not react to this as Skeeter is not hurting them; despite the noises the cheeky boy makes.
Skeeter does show bouts of interest in the cat at home but he can walk past without intrusion.

He is still as lazy as ever and if he see/hears you get the lead he will run and lie down or just run off but he does enjoy his walks. He does not like to be cold - if you wrap him in a blanket he is in his element.

Skeeter and the dog in his foster home are happy to eat along side each other and take chews/toys from each others mouths.



Skeeter mouths but very little now and is very gentle when he does.
The only one thing to watch with Skeeter (and we are working on this) is if he is warm and asleep and you go to pick him up to get him to go out he will nark at you, this is not all the time but it is something to be aware of; he is very head strong and stubborn (recently had a battle of wills to get him to sit for a biscuit), but he is ultra clever and knows exactly what to do!

He is so loving and anything he wants, he WILL let you know, whether it be by showing you, making eyes at you or simply standing up and giving a little cry! He will be a great addtion to someones home.
