Meet Chipper


Chipper, fka Rocky.
Chipper is an energetic boy who joined us from Georgia. He's a mix a little on the larger side. Beautiful red and chocolate speckled coat with little half folded ears. He gets along with dogs of all sizes and genders and is typically towards the bottom of the pecking order. Chipper can be cat and horse tested if needed at his foster home.

He respects fences. He is not food aggressive but he does eat very quickly. He's a gentleman in his crate but is not fully housetrained. He's UTD on his vetting and is already neutered. He is mostly quiet and only barks when warranted.

Chipper knows basic commands and walks well on a leash. We had a problem with him jumping up on people uninvited but it was easily corrected. Chipper will need to be placed in a home with NO small children. I have a 7yr old son and a 5yr old nephew and Chipper is not a fan of them. Behind the typical herding dog nipping, he doesn’t care for the noise and unpredictability. He is doing better with nipping when watched and told “no”. He does take his time warming up to you but once he likes you, he's your shadow. He enjoys chasing balls with the other dogs but doesn't bother bringing them back, he just likes the running part. He also enjoys lounging in the sunshine and playing with his foster siblings.

I have had Chipper in foster care for a few months now to make sure we knew any quirks. He’s a well-behaved, smart boy who will blossom with further obedience and trick training. Videos available playing with his foster siblings.
