Meet Chip

Chip is a young adult terrier mix, who has found himself and his adopted brother, Elroy, in need of a new home.  You see, he came to SPCHS when he was just a pup, was adopted quickly.  Now, a little over 2 and a half years later, his adopters are both working, he's home alone up to 10 hours each workday, his pet parents don't feel that's fair to him. He's also learned how to scale their 6-foot privacy fence (presumably to go looking for his pet parents) when no one is there to supervise him -- putting him at risk of being hit by a car or encountering a neighbor with a shotgun.  Even more challenging for his current pet parents, his terrier instinct makes it impossible for him to resist chasing and sometimes catching the cats in his home... that's dangerous for the cats!  Chip is 3 years old, neutered, microchipped and up-to-date on shots. He is high energy when outdoors, but inside is pretty relaxed. Chip is great around children -- though he might be a bit to energetic to be with children under 3 or 4.  He's very athletic and would do well with an active family in which someone will be home most of the time to supervise and play with him when he's outdoors.  He is also a big time snuggler who wants to be as close to you as he can be. He’s very sweet and sensitive, and he’s definitely at his best when he has someone he loves with him. Let him sit with you on the couch or bed and he’s in heaven.  He’s good on a leash and is crate trained. Chip needs his time outside and loves to run and play with other dogs, toys and best of all - interactive play with humans.   Chip is very smart, sweet, affectionate, well behaved, fun, and happy boy. He loves to be involved in anything that we are doing. His happy place is sitting right beside you. He loves outdoor activities and being able to run full speed. He’s just a great dog -- he's not a barker or whiner.

Adoption Process
The adoption process consists of the adopters meeting the animals, filling out a bit of paper work, verification of adoption application information, paying the adoption fee, and agreeing to a post-placement home visit. The adoption fees are: $120 for dogs/puppies older than 6 months and $150 for puppies under 6 months old. Cats/kittens are $85. The adoption agreement is legally binding.

Look for other dogs for adoption!
