Skya's a shy girl who needs time to get comfortable around people. But once she comes out of her shell, she is very loving and affectionate. She also has a delightfully silly, playful side. She starts bouncing around when she sees a human friend, and she loves to play and wrestle with other dogs. Born in 2014, Skya came to Best Friends from another rescue organization. She may never have had a home of her own, but she will blossom with time and patience. This dog is featured as part of our BLISS (Behavior Lifelong In-home Support System) Program. Through this program, you will receive pre- and post-adoption training advice from one of our behavior consultants, as well as a training plan specifically tailored to the dog's transition into your home. As an added bonus, this dog's adoption fee is waived and if a flight home is needed, that's free as well!
