Hi! I'm Chaplin, and I two years old. I am a Rhodesian Ridgeback mix. My mom thinks I have some Mastiff in me because I am super chill. I get along great with my large dog pack just fine, but I would much rather be the only dog. I don’t like cats or small dogs.
My mom describes me as affectionate, good natured, very smart, charming, silly, clumsy, cuddly, sweet, loyal & playful. I like my bones a lot. I don’t play fetch well or with any toys really. I cannot go to the park because of my issue with small dogs. I love playing with large dogs and running in the yard (mostly just running in the yard). I am great on walks, but if there is too much going on then I get nervous. I am crate trained. I have never had an accident inside. I know sit, lay down, and how to go to my crate. I am incredibly intelligent (Mom says “too smart for my own good”, whatever that means!) If there are yummy treats in the drawers, I will figure out how to open them, so you have to keep an eye on that.
What I really need is a furever home. I love my parents, but I don’t get as much attention as I deserve. My favorite time is when it is just me and my mom. If you want a chill gentle giant then I’m the pup for you. I will love on you every day I can. If I want you to love me more, then I will paw at you. I am really good at protecting my mom. I keep a careful watch on the window to make sure no one hurts her.

If you feel your home might be the right place for this wonderful dog, the place to start is with the adoption application found at www.dfwrescueme.org/adopt. Once submitted, the foster will contact you to tell you more, and to arrange a meeting! The adoption fee for all of our dogs is $250.00, which includes their vaccinations and spay/neuter.
Chaplin is participating in the DFW Rescue Me Guest Dog Program, so custody and ongoing care are provided by the foster, not by DFWRM.
