My story

Name: Chipotle

D.O.B./Sex: ~Oct 2018, MN

Breed: Unknown Mix

Known health issues: Slightly sensitive trachea. Does not cause any issues at this time.

Good with: Select dogs. Does not share high value items. NO CATS. NO DOG PARKS.

Adult only home.

Chipotle is a pint sized (~55lb) Energizer Bunny and fabulous little sport prospect for the dedicated enthusiast. He excels at anything he tries, and has a 'never quit' type personality. Anything you're up for, he's your man!

Chipotle currently enjoys, and competes in the local House League at K9 Fun Zone. This (2022) season he now boasts at personal best of 20' 5" in distance, and 6.94 sec in speed retrieve!! He has been improving consistently, and I hope to expose him to the vertical jump soon. He is only limited by my lack of individual time to spend training his form.

I recently had the opportunity to take him Lure Coursing at Laliberte Farm. He did great! A new sport for him, and I hope to bring him back again soon. Here's a video of one of his run attempts on his first ever day! 550y course. I have confidence his visual tracking of the lure will only increase, as well as his speed.

Chipotle bonds super well to his person, and is more of a one person type dog. He is not a fan of strangers handling him, and needs time spent building mutual respect. He is very affectionate with his person. He is a resource guarder, and needs a home that will appropriately manage these tendencies. He is not a soft dog, and will push back, and take whenever given the opportunity. If you channel this into his work, he gives back 100%.

Chipotle is a pleasure to walk, and can go just about anywhere. He is used to, and works well on the prong. He keeps to himself, and generally ignores the world around him. We took a video a few months ago on a walk, which can be viewed here:

Chipotle is now in his third year in rescue, and doesn't deserve to be continuously overlooked. He has heart, he has drive, and needs only that one special person to fall in love with him. Let's make 2023 his year!
