Skylar is a huge sweetheart!
She is a big cuddler who just wants to be near people and loves affection and attention.
She has been great with both other dogs and cats, and has not been tested with kids but could possibly do well with supervision (she can be a bit excitable and will jump up when getting ready for a walk). She is also fully housetrained.
Sky seems to be a husky(?) cross, possibly with some chihuahua in her as she is quite dainty at around 30 pounds. She is experiencing separation anxiety and has barked and cried loudly when left alone. This is something that should be straightforward to work through as she grows more confident (and having another dog in the house might help), but because of this, she needs a detached home for the time being and someone willing to work with her on this.
When she is home with her people, she is calm and quiet (if a bit needy), and will follow them around or snooze next to them. She loves walking/exercise (is bit of a puller) and could even be a good potential hiking or running buddy with an active family. She has also dealt with busy traffic and other stimuli very well.
Some of her other likes include sleeping on the furniture, food (she is very food and treat motivated), and, of course, lots of affection. Dislikes, being crated, being left alone, and squeaky toys.
