About Skippy

Very sweet, quiet, and lovable dog! She loves to run around and play but also loves to lounge around and hang out. Skippy is a lap dog in a big dog's body. She has a very nurturing personality and loves to take care of her younger brother, Ben. Skippy was adopted from the pound in Co. Monaghan, Ireland where she spent most of her life. She loves everyone she meets and walks great on a leash with her Halti collar. She very rarely barks, and when she does she scares herself! Skippy is not quite an off leash dog and can be scared by loud noises that may send her running. Skippy is a very smart girl and can respond to most basic commands, including sit, stay, and lay down. She gets along great with other dogs and children, and can't wait to meet others on her walks.

About Ben

Ben has a big personally and big heart for a little dog! He LOVES his play time! Ben is the comedian of the family and will keep you laughing all day long. He is energetic and loves to play with other people and pets. At times Ben can be a bit of a barker, but he quickly wears himself out and can sleep for hours. While at times he can be a stubborn dachshund, he does know his basic commands like sit, stay, lay down, and roll over. He is a lap dog and loves to be the baby of the family. Ben is also fully crate trained and likes to spend his nights in his den snuggled up with his blankets. Ben is easily entertained by toys, squirrels, other dogs and people. Ben is not an off leash dog and needs a bit of supervision when outside in the yard - even with a fence! By nature he likes to dig and can find himself in tight spaces.
