Chipper Must Have:
- Someone who is home most of the time and another active, playful dog. A family with kids would be wonderful!
- Have had dogs as an adult
- Recent/current dog experience
My name is Chipper and I am a coltish and charming bichon boy who is 10 months old and 17 pounds of cuteness and also a very lucky boy. Let’s start with why I am so lucky.
Until the other day I was living on the street and scrounging for food. Then I was picked up and taken to a place called a shelter. It was a loud and intimidating place for a youngster like me and I became quite scared. I rubbed and rubbed my ears on the concrete until they were very swollen and bloody. And while I don’t recommend doing that it did get me ‘rescued’ right away –so that I wouldn’t make things any worse for my poor ears!
My BFK Aunties took me to the nice vet where they shaved and cleaned up my ears and gave me some meds so that my ears would stop hurting me. Thank goodness they did as it worked! I’m already healing and the hair on my ears is already growing back.
Now I have a foster Mom who takes me on walks and rides – and a 9 year old foster sister (the human kind) that I can snuggle with and watch TV. I like to listen to everything she says to me and am doing my best to be her shadow!
There is also a great doggy foster brother who is helping me to become more confident every day. He is doing what Mom calls “showing me the ropes”. I get to meet lots of other dogs and people — and I like them all (Best of all, they like me!) And the greatest news is that I no longer have to be alone (Didn’t I tell you I’m lucky!)
Mom says that I’m very friendly, energetic, loving, cute and playful. I love my doggy foster brother and I love children! Oh and I love ALL toys! While I am happy to play with each and every one, my very favorite toy is my rubber chicken! Oh me, oh my! I love that little guy. (I also like to play fetch!)
Did I mention that I like to go for rides (in the car, of course!) and on walks? Well I do – walks and car rides are the best! And when we are back home, it doesn’t take much to get me into a ‘snuggle mode’. (Mom says I do that well, too!)
Dad says that I am smart, want to please and have already learned the ‘house rules’. Did you know I am already potty trained and that I sleep quietly all night in my crate? I’m also learning commands (although I’d rather be running and playing ‘cause I’ve got what Dad calls ‘puppy energy.’) He says that I am an amazingly happy and active guy who is friendly and full of love. (Gosh, Dad – thanks!)
Oh and one last thing: Mom says my eyes shine and smile because I’m so happy! So if you are looking for a guy who is happy, friendly, playful, enjoys cuddles and snuggles and has tons of love to give, please complete our application as I am waiting to meet you.
Tail wags and kisses,
Cute, Cuddly and Companionable Chipper
