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.

      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Adult
      Location: Guilford, CT
      Posted Breed: Schnauzer (medium coat). Please contact Maggie (thechisociety@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. ***************************************** Howie found himself at a high kill shelter in Louisiana after his owner passed away. His owner was an animal hoarder who mostly had cats but Howie and a few other dogs came from the household too. Although initially shy, Howie has made great strides in foster care and is now ready for his forever home up north thanks to The Chi Society. Howie is fully grown at 30# and 1 ½ year old. His foster mom says, “Howie is house trained but we've had a few accidents. When he has had plenty of time outside and been walked properly, we do not experience any accidents. He does fine on the leash. I use the retractable leashes because it allows him more freedom. I found that on a regular leash he was nervous and unsure of what we were doing, especially at night. He also would not leave my side to handle his business. I let Howie outside without a leash sometimes and he absolutely loves running through the yard. He runs and sniffs everything and comes when called. While my husband and I are gone for the day, Howie stays in his crate. He has not had any accident in his kennel. Howie is content in his kennel while we're gone and is always excited when it's time to get out. He sometimes resists when it is time for him to go into his kennel. We are working on this being a smoother process. Howie has been great with strangers. He has been around my mother in law, father in law, and brother in law and did great. He particularly liked my mother in law's yorkie, Pippa. Pippa is roughly 8 weeks old and weighs about 2 pounds right now. Howie was very gentle with her. She was put into a kennel while we ate dinner, and Howie sat right next to her the whole time. I was impressed how gentle he was with her. Howie has not been around children since I have had him. We do not have kids so that situation has not come up. I keep food down at all times for my dogs so Howie is used to snacking here and there. I was worried he would inhale the food but he never did that. I have never heard him growl when he was eating. He gets in there if he wants to eat, but most times he likes to go eat when no other dog is eating too. Howie is awesome with our 3 dogs. When I got Howie, I was told he likes to chase cats. Not sure if he would chase them in an aggressive way or just curious. We do not have cats, but our neighbor's cats roam in our yard sometimes. Howie has seen a cat in the yard and barked. Howie also likes to bark at squirrels. He loves to look out the living room window. Howie is a shy and nervous little guy, but he has gotten better since being home with us. He loves lying on the couch to nap. The ottoman is becoming his new favorite spot because he can look out of the window. Howie is not as familiar with some normal household appliances or daily activities like my dogs are. He gets nervous around the shower, sometimes the oven, and loud noises. The dryer buzzer startles him the most. For a normal day, Howie typically lounges around the house, plays with my dogs, and goes outside for walks/stretching his legs. He definitely likes to sleep! Howie is still figuring out playing with toys. He occasionally gets a ball and chews on it. He is learning it is ok for him to play. His energy level is probably low or medium. On the weekends we are all typically lazier than the week days. I would like to see Howie go to a home with a huge fenced in yard so he can run and explore things. If his potential owners were outdoorsy or even ran for exercise, then I think Howie would fit in perfectly. I think Howie would do great with other dogs in the house. Howie needs someone that will be patient with him and teach him that not everything is scary. Howie has already come out of his shell some since I have had him. I know once he has been adopted he will do even better. I love how sweet and gentle he is. He is very loving and wants to be right beside me at all times. His spotted tongue is a unique feature he has. I catch myself all the time thinking there is dirt on his tongue. His ears each do something different when they are perked. He really is a super cute dude and I am happy to be on this journey with him.” Howie photos: https://goo.gl/photos/Vn5ATTXhqNNoZtYo9 Howie video: https://youtu.be/rnk1lNGotyk Howie is neutered, microchipped, current on vaccinations, heartworm negative and current on heartworm prevention, and current on flea/tick prevention and deworming. Please email us at TheChiSociety@gmail.com to apply for Howie the Cutie! All of our dogs are spayed/ neutered before adoption.

      rescue
      Breed: Mutt
      Sex: Male Male
      Age: Young
      Location: Guilford, CT
      Posted Breed: Belgian Shepherd Malinois / Australian Cattle Dog/Blue Heeler (short coat). Please contact Maggie (thechisociety@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Hurley was brought into a vet clinic in Louisiana by a Good Samaritan. He was thin, terrified and had a tranquilizer dart stuck in his side where he had been darted by animal control. A vet tech at the clinic graciously offered to foster Hurley and help nurse him back to health. She has done a wonderful job with this handsome dog and he is now ready for a forever home up North. Hurley is approximately 1 year old and weighs 50#. We aren’t sure as to his breed but our best guess is Belgian Malinois mixed with Australian Cattle Dog. He is smart, sleek and muscular with a very cool brownish/black coat. He is house trained and crate trained, walks on leash without pulling and knows how to sit. He could likely learn many other tricks as he is very smart and food motivated. We think he would also excel in agility because he is very athletic! Hurley’s foster mom says, “I have had Hurley for a couple months now. He is doing well and adores his foster family. He plays well with the other dogs in my home who range in size from 15-50 lbs and in age from 1-10 years. He does show some guarding behavior (growling) towards the other dogs with food and bones so will need to be fed separately from other pets. He tries to play with my cats, but they do not like him much. He loves to give kisses and has an adorable habit of carrying his food bowl around with him sometimes. Getting Hurley acclimated to a new home will not be difficult as long as the new family is patient and loving. All this guy wants is good food and frequent belly rubs.” Hurley photos: https://goo.gl/photos/m4oGeK3tCygandKj6 Hurley videos: https://youtu.be/Ag6-4JwkCyI https://youtu.be/vR4gpAJfgls https://youtu.be/mLZhjSfbij0 https://youtu.be/4IMP3bJzro0 Hurley is neutered, microchipped, fully vaccinated, heartworm negative and current on monthly heartworm prevention, and current on flea/tick prevention and dewormer.

Please contact Maggie (thechisociety@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. ************************** Pepper is a darling girl who always has one ear at attention! 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.

When she found out about good food, soft beds, loving attention and how wonderful she feels giving love, Susie started a new life. Sadly the neglect meant that Susie had a large mammary tumor. It was removed when she was spayed. Our vet says that other than a touch of arthritis, Susie is healthy. A great save of a great little dog. More than anything else Susie loves to cuddle in bed with her person. Anyone will love the sweet companionship that Susie loves to give. She is house trained so as long as her person gets her out every few hours, she is easy to care for. Susie is friendly with humans so different people are not a problem. Having just found out how good affection is, Susie doesn't like to share. Being the only dog, in fact the only pet, is best.

She is approximately 4 years old and 40# (but currently on a diet). We think she is a Beagle x Pointer mix. Beatrice’s foster mom says, “If you are looking for a super cute snuggle buddy with a sweet-natured personality then you can stop your search here! Beatrice is definitely a Hound mix, likely with lots of Beagle in her geneology. She has the sweet Hound nature about her but she can also be silly and goofy sometimes as you can see in her videos. Her favorite thing is her nighttime ritual of snuggling up beside her foster dad in his recliner. She will watch TV with you or "help" you work on the laptop (this consists of her trying to lay her head on it), she's not picky in what you do together as long as she's with her people. She will hang out with you wherever you are...the kitchen, the bathroom, all over the house...you'll never be lonely as long as she is around. She is house-trained and sleeps all night in her crate without making a peep. She would definitely love to sleep in the bed with you if that's your cup of tea. She gets along great with her 3 foster dog sisters and enjoys laying with them too if they are willing. She tries to play with them every now and then but they are all seniors and they tend to just walk away. She LOVES to eat which is likely why she's a little curvaceous at this time. She's lost a few pounds since she's been in foster care and if she gets some regular exercise in her new home she will likely slim down a little more. We have found nothing negative about this sweet and loving girl and know that she'll easily be the perfect friend for someone.” Beatrice photos: https://goo.gl/photos/7gvwa4BbftCKMeRJ9 Beatrice videos: In foster care - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4ZL8jVov89c https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PE4HtqOs5oQ&t=4s From when she was still at the shelter: https://youtu.be/KJnHSX6k7yI Beatrice is spayed, microchipped, current on vaccinations, and current on monthly heartworm/flea prevention and deworming.

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.

We don't know much about her history, but its a safe bet that life wasn't very kind to Miss Camilla... she was very shy when PAWS of NE LA pulled her from the high kill shelter that she found herself in. Now she has blossomed into a sweet and friendly young dog and is ready for a forever home thanks to The Chi Society! Camilla is between 1-2 years old, and a petite 20 pounds. She appears to be a "Puggle" which is just a fancy name for a Pug x Beagle mix, and should not get any bigger. Camilla is quiet and easygoing, with a medium/low energy level. She's a great mix-happy to snuggle on the couch but loves to go on long walks as well. Camilla gets along with other dogs (she loves to play), but is not a fan of cats. She would prefer a home without small children, as she finds them a little overwhelming. Camilla is totally housetrained, crates well, is spayed, and is up to date on all vaccinations and heartworm prevention. Can you help this sweet little low rider get the happy ending she deserves?

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.

      Posted Breed: Labrador Retriever / Mixed (short coat). Please contact Maggie (thechisociety@gmail.com) for more information about this pet. Baby Millie came into a Louisiana high kill shelter in late summer. She was scrawny and had trouble with one her back legs. Local group PAWS of NE LA stepped in and Millie was saved. We learned that the head of Millie’s femur was broken some time ago and had healed incorrectly. She had to have been in terrible pain, but Millie faced every day with a wag of her tail and lots of kisses. Millie had a "FHO" surgery or femoral head osteotomy… the broken head of her femur was removed. Millie came through surgery and physical therapy like a champ and her vet reports she has made a full recovery! Millie can now run, jump, play and live a pain free life like any normal pup. As of late December, Millie is approximately 7 months old and 45#. She is thriving! Her foster mom says, “Millie is a rambunctious and sweet girl who loves to play and go everywhere with her person. She loves to run and play, fetch, and eat. She is good on or off of leash and loves to have a yard to run and play in. She loves all dogs she comes across and plays with them all day long. Millie loves any person she meets and is great with kids. She loves to snuggle in bed and go on long walks. She is a really special girl and deserves a special home.” Millie has been around horses, goats and cats and is great on the farm. She is able to go to work with her foster mom most days and is up for any new adventure. She is a great road trip buddy and even loves visiting the vet. Millie has also been know to sneak into the shower while her foster mom has the water on to warm up and will lie right down and relax under the spray. She also loves making snap chat videos and having her person sing silly songs to her. Please email us at TheChiSociety@gmail.com to apply for this beautiful Lab baby!
