Why choose me?

It’s sad that 17-year-old Chip is at the pound, but his owners could no longer care for him. He’s partially blind and may also be deaf. Since he doesn’t see well and is in an unfamiliar place, it’s best not to put your hands in front of his face. His response is to bite at what’s directly in front of him like it’s a treat. Scratching him along his back was fine. I slipped the leash over his head, and he knew right away it was time to go for a walk. Once we were in the interaction pen, Chip took care of his business and then began walking the perimeter. He got comfortable with a path and stayed with that while we were outside. When I leashed him again, he knew it was time to go back inside and walked beside me. Chip is already neutered and house trained. He’s been around male dogs and cats and was fine with them. Hopefully, Chip will find a home where he can spend the remainder of his golden years. He needs a home where he can be comfortable, loved, and get into a familiar routine.
