CHIPPER was saved from Texas where most shelters have to kill dogs for space after just 3 days. He is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in other states and Canada where our dogs get adopted.
CHIPPER is neutered, rabies, core vaccines, de-wormed, heartworm & tick-disease tested (Snap 4dx) negative and micro-chipped. He weighs around 25 pounds and has an estimated date of birth of 20 April 2012.
CHIPPER is a sweet boy, the shelter had him labeled as a pomeranian mix, but I think he looks more to be a corgi mix, but we really have no way of knowing for sure. He is very sweet and is really hoping that his forever family find him soon. Although he is great with the other dogs and lives and plays amongst them from 8 pound chi's up to 95 pound German Shepherds it is very clear he is more of a human's dog. He loves to hang out on the chair when I"m sat on it, or he will guard my wellington boots (rubber boots). He can be a bit grumpy with some of the other dogs if they are walking past his space, but that is just a little growl, more like a grumpy old man than anything else.
He uses the dog door to go out and play / do his business. I am not sure if he knows to let someone know he needs to go out or not, but I am sure it wouldn't take long once he has adapted to his new life and schedule.
We do not have cats in the rescue so we are not able to comment on how he will act around them..
CHIPPER would benefit from an active, fun family that has the time to work with him on his obedience and manners, who would take him on adventures and road trips and let him explore the sights, sounds and smells the world has to offer. He would benefit from a family that has the time to work with him on basic and advanced obedience training. By working together both CHIPPER and his humans can learn each others body language and personality, expectations and boundaries can be set and with self-training a stronger bond formed.
We currently feed SPORTMIX Wholesomes Chicken Meal & Rice Formula, a 4* (a per www.dogfoodadvisor.com) GRAIN FREE food along with pro-bioitics and immune support supplements listed on the available dogs page!
CHIPPER is available for adoption through Give a Dog a Home, German Shepherd Dog Rescue for an adoption fee of $500. This fee is not negotiable and is used to cover the rescue costs of pulling, vetting, health certificate, transport from Texas to Maine, monthly preventatives, supplements, food and anything else that is needed.

CHIPPER is located at the rescue in Sebec, Maine. We post in various states along the east coast and Canada where we have had lots of successful adoptions to enable more exposure for these beautiful saved souls. Families will need to be prepared to travel to the rescue to meet and take home their new best friend. There is a local hotel in Dover-Foxcroft that is pet-friendly (approx 6 miles) and several in Bangor (approx 45 miles). There are also lots of wonderful camp-sites for the more adventurous families and what a great way to get to know your new best friend. If there are options to arrange transport, we will work with you to make it happen.
