found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered, housetrained, up to date with shots, good with kids, and good with dogs.
The untrained eye may see these pictures of Chip and think, well there’s a dog with his kid….probably in the back yard or at the park. How lovely. What you are actually looking at is Chip, just a number at the shelter, with a rescuer’s daughter.
Indulge us just a moment. Rescue is hard and rescue kids learn to love the shelter – a place where many adults shutter at the mere thought of entering. They learn to love a foster, and say goodbye, and although it’s sad to say bye, these kids learn that saying goodbye means also saying hello to a new face. And this is when I take you back to Chip.
Chip was sitting at the shelter, just waiting for the right person to come along and notice him….and then came Ava, Allison’s oldest daughter. Ava noticed Chip and Chip her. We took him out of the kennel and let him into the yard at the shelter so he could stretch his legs. Can you imagine being a dog, in a small kennel, in a shelter, constant noise, and constant stress? I would imagine if I were a dog, the minute my paws hit the grass I would run and roll. Not Chip. He slowly took his first few steps into the sun and stayed right by Ava’s side. Ava was enjoying a snack, and dropped a little on the ground – Chip picked it up and didn’t gobble it up, he held it gently in his mouth and handed it back to Ava. And that’s when he earned his name. Chip.
Chip is a two-year-old yellow lab. His adoption fee is $450 and includes his neutering, vaccinations, microchip and transportation from Memphis to you. **Chip is living in a foster home in the Memphis area. If you are interested in adopting this boy, please email firstname.lastname@example.org for an adoption application.***
Thank you for reading Chip’s story and, most of all, for considering a rescue.
