CHIP was saved from Texas where most dogs in the kill shelters have 3 days to be saved before they are killed. CHIP is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heart-worm and tick disease (SNAP 4DX) tested negative and micro-chipped. He has been estimated date of birth of 24 July 2016.
CHIP can initially be nervous of people and his surroundings, but by giving him time to gain his confidence at his own pace, he is generally pretty eager to get out and explore and meet the other dogs. If people give him time, he will soon warm up and come up to smell you and then enjoy getting lots of love and cuddles.
CHIP when outside he loves to run and enjoys being chased by the other dogs, it is like he is running free for the first time and so beautiful to see. When in the house he tends to hang out away from the hustle and bustle of the life at the rescue. He tends to hang our more with the smaller dogs, but is gradually gaining more confidence with the big dogs also.
CHIP would suit a relatively active fun family that would take him on adventures and road trips and let him explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. He would benefit from a family that has the time to work with him on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both CHIP and his humans can learn each others body language and personality, expectations and boundaries can be set and with self-training a stronger bond formed.

CHIP is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. There is a local hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen
