There’ll be no more gray days when you have Skylar in your life! Skylar is an 18 month-old, 50-pound Border Collie/Poodle mix looking for an attentive owner to continue his training and help him become the best dog he can be!


Skylar is incredibly smart and needs activities that will keep his mind engaged. He knows how to open doors and will learn how to navigate any obstacle by observing you. Skylar is crate-trained and knows how to: go to his spot, sit, stay, shake, fetch, and go to bed. He is used to being able to potty whenever he wants to so would do best in a home that can provide him frequent breaks (every 2 hours during the day) or has a doggie door while you build his new potty schedule.Skylar is still learning how to walk on leash. He is great with a gentle leader. He wants to keep playing while he is on walks and is super curious about every rock and stick that he sees…and occasionally the less desirable finds.


Skylar is still trying to understand boundaries, especially when it comes to chewable items in the house and giving you space during your meals. Additional training in these areas will be helpful.


Skylar is an energetic dog that loves to play! He gets along with other dogs (especially ones of similar size) and can spend all day playing with them. He would still prefer to be an only dog at home. While he is untested with cats, we expect his playful nature will be overbearing to them. He also loves to play catch and will drop the ball for you to throw over and over again. Skylar is unaware of his size and is still learning not to jump on people. He would do best with kids 14 and up who can help to reinforce his training.


At the end of the day, his favorite thing to do is share some cuddles with you on the couch. This is the perfect time to brush his fur to minimize shedding and keep it healthy and beautiful!


Skylar’s adoption fee is $600 and he’s HW negative, current on all HW/Flea preventatives, microchipped and neutered. All adoption fees go toward expenses like medical and food for Doodle Dandy Dogs and help make it possible for us to continue giving amazing pups like Skylar a second chance.
