Arrival Story:
Skippy came here to live with Stevie, Sonja, Fluffy, and DJ on October 19, 2006. He was a rescue baby. We got him from Linda at Timmy's Friends in Arizona. She had loved Skippy and taken very good care of him. When Skippy was born his Mommy accidently bit off his left rear foot, when she was trying to bite trough the umbilical cord which was wrapped around Skippy's foot. She didn't mean to do it, but Skippy was without a foot from the beginning. When he was about 15 months old, the Vet said that Skippy would be better off without the extra weight of the useless leg, and so the leg was fully amputated . Skippy does fine and runs and plays as if he had four legs. He does not know that he is different, because he has always been on three legs. He has a lot of courage, just like his blind buddie, Stevie.
