|Rescue Me ID: 17-04-25-00066Chipper (male)|
Cocker Spaniel Age: Young Adult
Date into Rescue: 3/7/16 - adopted but returned when roommate got a new dog and Chipper did not like him Reason for being in rescue: breeder/hoarder Foster location: Dreamweaver Farms, Pacolet SC Special Needs? yes, Chipper tested positive for heartworms. He just completed his heartworm treatment using the fast kill method. The fast kill method consists of giving the dog three immiticide injections and keeping them strictly confined on crate rest for four to six weeks. Chipper will be retested for heartworms six months after the completion of his treatment. Weight: est 15 lbs Height: est 12' at shoulder Adoption Fee: $200 Fence needed? ... (Read More)no What kind of home would be best for me? Chipper is one of many dogs seized from a hoarder in Abbeville, South Carolina. The poor guy was living in filthy deplorable conditions-no clean water, dirty matted hair, feces, etc. Chipper deserves a nice home with a loving family that can meet all his needs. He would make a great family pet and he gets along well with older considerate children. He does need a family that can care for his medical needs and if interested in Chipper, we encourage adopters to read about heartworms. What is my personality like? Chipper is a total love bug when he wants to be. He wants nothing more than to be with his human and will follow you everywhere, but will sometimes guard you. Chipper loves to climb on your lap and lay his head on your shoulder while being petted. He gets along well with other dogs, but is much more interested in people but, needs a patient owner. Chipper is eager to please and could easily be taught some basic commands. Chipper is crate trained and hops right in when its bedtime. Update- Chipper was previously adopted but then returned due to resource guarding his owner and not getting along with the new dog brought into the home. When Chipper commits, he commits hard. He would do great with a single person that would be willing to earn his trust. Update from caregiver 3/7/2017- Chipper was recently returned. I can't recall how long ago he went to his 'forever home,' but he came back much like the boy who left. He's a bit headstrong. He pulls on leash until he strangles himself a bit. He then ends up coughing. With a harness, that problem could be avoided. He didn't seem to care about the dogs in the admin office. Salem the cat did not even merit a sniff. He did bark at someone he did not know, but there was no aggression. He was doing what dogs are supposed to do. He was great in the car. He even stretched out in the back window. I heard the reasoning for his return. All I can say is: he was a great companion this afternoon. How I act when I first meet new people: Chipper is cautious and wary of new people more so men than women, but he warms up fairly quickly. . House trained? Dogs can be house trained if they are in the right environment and are allowed to follow a schedule as long as a physical reason doesn't keep them from being trained. A dog house trained in my home may not be in yours. We will help you teach your new dog this necessary skill and based on your schedule. My age: 3/11/2012 Please note - we do not ship dogs. If you are interested in adopting, please take a look at the distance between the foster home location and your location and make sure you are willing to make that trip. To apply, please visit our webpage at www.carolinapoodlerescue.org and visit the tab on the left that directions you to the online application. Please note that when screening applications, we look at the entire home and then make suggestions based on what would be a good fit for your home. You are not being screened for a specific dog although we are looking to see what type of dog interests you - poodles or non poodles, color, age, etc. Others here may be a better fit for you. It is very difficult to get to know a living animal from a picture and a short description. Since we are constantly getting in new dogs, this may be a dog not in our listings yet. We want you to be very happy with your new companion and will make suggestions based on what you tell us about you.
