Skipper was found while fishing in the Bahamas. He was about 5-6weeks old. He had worms, fleas and was in poor health. We got him to the vet and they told us if he went to a shelter there he would be put down. We brought him back to the US with the hopes of finding his forever home. He has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and potty trained. He loves to swim, dig, run, play, cuddle and just be with his people.
