MORE INFO ABOUT ME:
Are you kidding me?? It's really my turn to find a family??? I can't wait! And i can tell you exactly what sort of family would be best for me. But first, let me tell you a bit about me. My name is Chip, I'm about 10 months old and weigh (currently) 65 lbs. As you may be able to deduce by my handsomeness, I am MOSTLY yellow lab!! I was rescued by the county dog pound after someone had the nerve (and lack of conscience) to take me for a ride and simply open the car door on a back road, toss me out and then drive off leaving my young self all alone in the dark!! However, I wouldn't be lying if I said that was the best thing that could have happened to me because now I have 2 (big) foster doggie siblings and we play like CRAZY!!! I am alllll puppy when it comes to playing. I play hard and sleep hard!! If you have another dog, he/she will need to be ready to play. But no worries because once I'm all played out (in typical lab fashion) I can be found lounging on the sofa for a quick nap!! If you don't think you will have the time and energy to exercise me, don't worry because I will find my OWN ways to expend all my energy and welll, let's face it you may not be happy with the outcome!! Let me just say that I would do soooo much better with a doggie sibling (or more) to keep me "exercised out". I am doing fairly well with my potty habits and crate training but even though I am not a teeny tiny puppy I am still very young and will need continued guidance, consistency and patience. If you keep a close eye on me and "remind" me when it's time to go out it should soon become habit for me! I have just recently learned to love car rides and really enjoy going thru drive thru banks with foster mom because I always get doggie treats!! I have not met a human or doggie that I haven't liked and kids,,,,welll, as you can imagine I LOVE them because they have the same energy level as I do. The perfect home for me will have to provide me with lots of exercise to run off my puppy energy and then be willing to allow all 65lbs of me to snuggle up to them on the couch when I'm all tired out! I am still learning proper leash habits and will require continued work in that area as well. I do much better with an "Easy Walk" harness as oppossed to a simple collar/leash combo. You know what would be great??? If you and I could take some basic puppy classes together!! I learn quickly (currently respond to a firm "NO" when doing something inappropriate) and it would be an awesome bonding time for us. I have already learned how to "sit" and take treats very gently. I know what you may be thinking...."oh, I can train Chip without classes". Well, you may be able to but I AM a 65 lbs pup who can throw my weight around as if I were only 10 lbs so you may want to think about getting some professional help in teaching me the basics. You know, like no counter surfing, stay, no jumping, no puppy mouthing. Allll the things I should have been taught when I was just a little guy!! Due to my large size, if you have small children I may be a bit much for them. Not in an aggressive way (I have NONE of that!!) but I could quite possibly knock them over in my excitement to play. I've been pretty good about not picking up stuff laying around my foster home and chewing on things but my foster Mom is very well seasoned when it comes to puppies so she knows not to leave thing just laying around. But one time she forgot and I had me a little "chewfest" on her flip flops. Can't blame me, I see that as a "crime of opportunity". Think she will leave her shoes laying around again??? I think not!! BUT, again...I am a puppy and will chew on anything I can find so if that's something you are not willing to work with than I am not your guy. If you are patient and have the time to let me outgrow my puppy ways then I promise I will make the best snuggle buddy ever. Anyhoo, if you are ready for some crazy puppy antics and lots of cuddletime then fill out that application so we can meet up!! love, chipper!! xoxoxo
