More About Chipin Breed
If you’re looking to adopt a dog and don’t know where to start, puppyfinder.com is an excellent source for information about adopting a dog and will connect you with hundreds of shelters across the US that have adoptable puppies and older dogs waiting for forever homes.
  1. Do your research – find out what types of dogs would be a good fit for your lifestyle and the activity level of your family. Also keep in mind the grooming needs of certain breeds that might require frequent maintenance.
  2. Decide what you can handle – before you get sucked in by all the adorable puppy eyes you’re about to see, think long and hard about the appropriate age dog for your family or if you are capable of caring for a special needs dog. Puppies are a lot of work, if you don’t have time for potty training and obedience classes you’ll want to consider an older dog. There are plenty of middle aged, vibrant dogs up for adoption as well as many senior dogs that would be a great fit for a family looking for a more subdued dog with lots of love to give.
  3. Learn about the shelters and their adoption policies – It might be easier to start looking at shelters within a certain radius of home but don’t be afraid to venture out to other states as well. Many states have larger populations of adoptable dogs and their shelters are willing to transport pets to suitable adopting families. Some shelters might have requirements for a home visit, a fenced yard or require you to visit the pet multiple times before you commit to adopting. Understand that the shelters are doing their best to place the pets in suitable homes and these requirements are in the best interest of both you and the pet.
  4. Start looking… Once you know what you’re looking for and what to expect you can start your search through thousands of adoptable dogs. PuppyFinder allows you to search by age, breed, location and gender.
  5. Meet in person. Whenever possible it is best to meet the animal in person before agreeing to bring them into your life. Even though photos and descriptions can tell you a bit about a dog, you can’t get a true feeling for the animal until you are able to interact with them and make sure they are a good fit for your entire family, including other pets.

I am very smart and eager to learn and please; I sit on command (especially for treats ;) ) I love to run and play with other dogs and kids and I absolutely LOVE to be petted. I do like to chase cats though so a home without kitties would be best. I was found by animal control wondering the streets trying to find food in a dumpster. :( I have been known to climb a chain link fence so a wooden fence would be best for me. I'm so thankful that I was rescued from the shelter and now live with my foster Mom. She's the best but I would love to have the chance to be a part of my own family.

      Breed: Labbe
      Sex: Female Female
      Age: Adult
      Location: Guilford, CT
      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Beagle / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Maggie (thechisociety@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Update: Amber is a celebrity! Check her out on TV https://youtu.be/lcOqvZ4DdSA Amber is a story of resilience and hope. She entered a high kill shelter in North East Louisiana at the end of August 2016. A quiet girl, she was adopted once but returned shortly thereafter as the family felt she lacked the energy they wanted and was not a very good “guard dog”. She lingered at the shelter until later December 2016 when she was rescued by local group PAWS of NE LA. After setting in to foster care and learning what it is like to be a well loved family member, Amber is now ready to find her forever home up north through The Chi Society. Amber is estimated to be 2 years old and weighs 40#. We aren’t sure of her heritage, but our best guess is some sort of Lab x Beagle mix. She has stunning green eyes, velvety soft ears, a sleek golden coat and a love of water! Amber’s foster mom says, “Amber is a loving soul, gentle and well-mannered at home, a smiling ball of fur and energy at the park. Amber is housetrained but her new family will need to watch her signals. Amber will pace when she wants out, she will not bark or make any overt gestures at the door. She walks well on a leash, she is used to walking side by side with her foster sibling and enjoys long trail treks, smelling the delights of the great outdoors and letting squirrels now that she is the boss! Show Amber a pond of water, a creek, a fountain, a wading pool and this girl will jump into it with sheer abandonment and pure joy. She loves to splash and play, bury her nose deep in the water and look for treasures. Amber lost her zest and ability to trust after 5 months of shelter life, in foster care she has blossomed and is ready to find her fur-ever family. It takes her some time to warm up to strangers. She shows zero aggression in any form. She is not food, toy, or people aggressive. She loves all dogs, ignores cats but has shown great interest in our pet ducks. When Amber is feeling stressed she like to chew. We keep her supplied with nylabones, marrow bones, chew and rope toys and of course stuffed animals. Amber lights up when she sees children, she doesn’t directly approach toddlers or young children but wants to walk up to babies (tail wagging, ear’s up and demeanor very chill). Amber is friendly but shy, her energy level can be described as consistent depending on situation. She is a great cuddle bug but if you are willing to run and play hard outside, or provide her with an opportunity to enjoy the company of other canines she will cavort until she is exhausted. The perfect home for Amber will be structured and calm. She is still developing her confidence and loud noises and chaotic situations cause her great stress. She was crated initially upon arriving in foster care but the crate seemed to cause un-do anxiety. She has full run of the foster home and has never caused any problem. Her foster siblings are a Chihuahua, a Dauschund and a Vizsla mix. She gets along with dogs of all sizes and adjusts her level of play to the size of the dog she is with and loves to snuggle up with her foster family (people and pups) whenever she can. My favorite thing about Amber is her smile. You have to earn it (unless you are in a vehicle, then she gives it freely). When Amber smiles you can’t help but want to hug her and kiss her on the nose. That smile means she is feeling safe and happy and that is my greatest wish for her.” Amber photos: https://goo.gl/photos/msfMVw8YRgJggTuh9 Her foster mom is a photographer so these are a real treat! Amber videos: https://youtu.be/4FyGmSqLEc4 https://youtu.be/l20vrj23mQg https://youtu.be/Rj-nH3WzCow https://youtu.be/6M-8ban0oOM Amber is spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, heartworm negative and current on prevention and current on monthly flea/tick prevention and deworming.

He is about 10-12 months old. Someone left this poor pup at a flea market and we soon discovered he had mange. All that is cleared now and he is a super happy fella! He was also suffering from an injured leg. We think he had been hit by a car. His leg had already started healing and the veterinarian said operating would not be ideal. He's doing great but he does seem a little stiff at times. We keep him some pain medicine on hand for those kinda days. :) If he isn't sleeping in a sunny spot he is sleeping inside in his fluffy bed. He loves to "talk" to people if you talk to him and gets along well with other dogs and cats! He walks well on a leash and is fantastic with children! Ranger is kennel trained and will go into his crate on command, he also does not have a problem sleeping in his kennel but can be left out also since he is fully House trained. He loves chew toys and will take them to his bed or to a sunny spot outside and sit. Ranger would be an excellent dog for an older couple, or someone looking for a couch companion (even though he knows the furniture is off limits in his foster home.)

She loves to go for walks, and is a surprisingly good running partner. She is great with other dogs and loves to play, although she is not a fan of cats. Totally house trained and crates well, although she is trustworthy enough that her foster mom leaves her loose in he house. Millie is shy but polite when meeting new people. She recently went to a pet parade, and met literally dozens of people of all ages. She was a perfect lady! She tends to bond deeply, and would really love to have her very own "furrever" person to love. Can you help this sweet little low rider get the happy ending she deserves?

She has a soft brindle coat and soulful puppy dog eyes. Sweet Pepper was rescued from a high kill shelter in Louisiana. She is a little over 1 year old and has adjusted to life with a foster family well. Pepper’s foster mom says, “Pepper is a great dog and will be a perfect addition to someone’s family! She is sleeping throughout the night in a kennel with her foster sister, and is almost completely housetrained. She goes outside and comes back in on command. She does well with her kennel when we have to leave and she does not fuss. She does very well with other dogs—she jumped right into a home with two existing fur babies. She seems like the type of dog that needs companionship with another dog. We do not have any cats around so I’m not sure how she would do with cats. She first is pretty shy around new people but warms up pretty quickly. It took us a little while to get her used to a harness but she now can wear one with no problems. She is not a fan of the leash but she is slowly getting better with it. Pepper is very uncomfortable around smaller children but I think would do well with middle-aged kids.” Pepper photos: https://goo.gl/photos/n4r2G7ELpQd4KXpV7 Pepper video: https://youtu.be/ObKHxKM3MDM Pepper is spayed, microchipped, fully vaccinated, heartworm negative and current on prevention and current on flea/tick prevention.

      Posted Breed: Boxer / Hound (short coat). Please contact Peggy (thechisociety@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Gracie’s foster mom calls her “Gracie Lou Freebush” (from the Miss Congeniality movies) because she is a little bit rough around the edges but she is a pretty girl who tries hard to please. Gracie is a 3 year old 53#, Boxer x Hound mix. Gracie was rescued from a high kill shelter in Louisiana and is now healthy and ready for a forever home up North. She is housetrained and crate trained. Gracie pulls a bit on leash but is getting better… she would likely benefit from a halti or gentle leader for walks. She knows how to sit for a treat (and she looooooves treats). She loves everyone she meets and even gets excited about going for outings to the vet. Gracie is excellent with kids and has been around ages 4-13. Her size and energy level may not be a match for small children though. The other dogs in Gracie’s foster home aren’t very playful but she has play dates with a friend’s Labrador and they play non-stop. Gracie has not been tested with cats. Gracie’s foster mom says, “She is a bundle of goofy energy who would prefer an active home. She loves to play and chase bugs in the yard. She gives tons of kisses and never turns down the chance for a belly rub. While she is playful, she mostly loves to just be with her people and can be found under my feet while I cook dinner.” Gracie is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations and current on monthly heartworm/flea prevention. Upon rescue, she did test positive for heartworm but she breezed through treatment and is now heartworm free and ready for her forever home...please email us at TheChiSociety@gmail.com to apply for Miss Gracie Lou..:) Gracie photos: https://goo.gl/photos/mwMEXbHMC4SEsVme6 Gracie video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r6Fz5neZqqw All of our dogs are spayed/ neutered before adoption.

      Posted Breed: Border Collie (short coat). Please contact Maggie (thechisociety@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. ***************************************** Who doesn’t love a dog with a permanent wink! Meet Fergus! This handsome fella came into a Louisiana high kill shelter as a stray with some yucky skin and an injured eye. He had been well cared for at one point because he was already neutered (which is rare for a dog coming into this rural shelter). After Fergus’ stray hold, he was scheduled for euthanasia due to his medical issues. Luckily, local group PAWS of LA stepped in and Fergus was saved. Upon rescue, Fergus had to have his eye removed. His skin has healed beautifully and Fergus is now healthy and ready for his forever home up North. Fergus’s foster mom says, “Fergus is a wonderful dog who will show immense love to his new family. His family would need to be patient with him as he settles in. When I first brought Fergus home, it took time for Fergus to adjust, but adjust he did! He plays very well with my 3 personal dogs that range in weight from 15-45 lbs and in age from 1-10 years. He does alright with the cats now, but did like to chase one in particular the first few weeks he was here. He kennels very well especially when you have a treat for him. He has never been one to whine or bark while in his crate and has always slept through the night. He is house trained. I don’t think he had ever had a leash on before I got him, so while not perfect; he is much better about going for walks now! He does get excited when it’s time to eat and will bounce all over the place until it is his turn and I make him sit for his food. Fergus didn’t know what to do with toys when he first got home. He would watch as the other dogs played and would even sniff the toys on occasion. I would put toys beside him in his kennel and on his bed. He would give me a “what am I supposed to do with this?” kind of look. Now, 4 months later, he loves toys. All toys! I’ve had several different kinds and his favorites seem to be toys that make funny. Anything that has crinkly paper inside makes him happiest. He also enjoys a peanut butter filled Kong. He rides great in the car and has never been car sick. He also does well for baths. He doesn’t like them, but he behaves pretty well. I do think he would prefer a home without kids as fast movements and rough handling make him uncomfortable. Fergus has come so far these past few months and while I will miss him, I can’t wait for him to find his forever home.” Fergus photos: https://goo.gl/photos/Sy43mpfFPbNaZtmp7 Video of Fergus from the shelter: https://youtu.be/PJLoQhxnWpE Fergus is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and current on monthly heartworm/flea prevention and deworming.
