VERY FRIENDLY & LOVES ATTENTION!!! A REAL LOVE BUG!
Skillet is a tall, handsome American Fox Hound (mix), with great markings and those loveable hound ears. He is about 3 years old, and even though he is quite thin, weighs 57 pounds. He is very friendly and loves affection, almost more than he loves cookies! He showed up at a house with his friend, Spencer. They made friends with the man, who tried to find their owners, but unfortunately no one was looking for them. Sadly, the man who found them was unable to keep them, so he brought them to almost home to be sure they would be taken care of. They went to Animal Control to wait out their “hold time” and now Skillet is back with us!!! (His friend Spencer got adopted last week.)
I played with Skillet today while a child’s birthday party was happening at the shelter. He was such a happy boy and he really seemed to LOVE being around the children. He was standing tall on his hind legs and kissing them through the fence whenever they would come near him. With me, he very gently stood tall to hug and kiss me too. When I told him to get down, he did, as long as I went down to his level and showered him with love. Skillet is a real “love bug” who loves to give hugs and receive kisses. He is very debonair too.
Take a very good look at him here and KNOW that if you and he are a good fit for each other, he could be your very own HOUSE HOUND! (House Hounds are all the rage—just ask anyone who has one. And the American Fox Hound won Best in Show in several breed competitions in 2015 and 2016.)
He would do well in a family that had children six years old or older. Even though he loves the little kids too, he could easily “bowl them over” with his love.
