Chip (as in chocolate chip) isn't just semi-sweet, he's totally sweet.   He is a six-month old, 38 lb. blue belton puppy.   Chip hasn't had an accident since his first day in his foster home (fingers crossed that house training is done!). Chip is very interested in birds and squirrels and butterflies - really anything that moves outside in the yard!  He has a beautiful point, and when chasing his butterflies he will jump straight up in the air.  Despite his enthusiasm, once the object of interest is beyond the fence, Chip moves on to the next thing.  

While Chip likes to lay at my feet while I cook, his curiosity does get the best of him in the kitchen.  Chip is working on not stealing things from the counter, and his foster mom is working on not leaving things there to steal! Like any puppy, Chip can get excited and playful inside.  He knows exactly where the dog toy bin is, and will go pull toys or bones out when he needs entertainment.  He generally likes to be in the same room as his people.  We are working on not begging, because Chip has learned to put his head in your lap while you are eating.  He doesn't try to steal food, he gives you his best puppy eyes ... it's just so darn cute.   

Chip is pretty happy-go-lucky and is easily re-directed if he starts to get into mischief.    He loves other dogs and is learning to respect his foster brother's boundaries.  As you can see, Chip doesn't need more than some exercise, some toys, and some TLC to make him happy.    He has a lifetime of love to give.  Don't you want to be Chip's forever family?

CHIP'S SUCCESS STORY (11/08)

As promised, here are some pictures of Chip and family, now that he has had a little time to get settled in.  We think he's wonderful and he seems to be getting along fine.

Maggie and Chip are doing great together. They share everything and play constantly. We had to buy some heavy rubber toys because they love to play tug-a-war and I've lost count of the number of stuffed animals that have bit the dust since they started. Since they are close in size and weight right now, one doesn't get advantage over the other for very long. Again, thanks for fostering him and for sending him to us. He's a sweety!
