Adoption pending.
    Foster Plea: Chip is a wonderful, handsome pure chocolate lab who is estimated by vets to be about a year old. He is sweet and loving, knows some basic commands, and is doing very well with crate training. Chip is strong and active, however, and heartworm positive. He needs a foster or adoptive home that could see him through his upcoming heartworm treatment. His foster home should not have other young dogs or young children because keeping Chip calm during his 8-week treatment will be a challenge. Chip is currently at the kennel and desperately needs to adjust to a home prior to starting heartworm treatment. Since his treatment will be in the Louisville area, it would be best for him to be in a Louisville home so he doesn’t have to travel back to Louisville for his treatments. Chip would also prefer a home with someone around more than the typical working family because he will have to be crated when unsupervised. To foster, please contact Linda George at 502-643-3399 or lrr60681@gmail.com.

    Chip is a happy, sweet one year old lab with a wonderful disposition. He is very mild mannered for being just one and ‘smiles’ with his tail every time someone walks in the room or even looks at him. Chips loves a good belly rub and scratch behind the ears. He is also happy just hanging out in the same room with his people and doesn’t demand constant attention. Chip will occasionally walk around with a new found shoe but never chews them or anything else. He knows ‘sit’ and ‘lay down’ and is working on ‘stay’ …but that’s hard when your tail is always wiggling. Chip loves to go for walks and is well behaved on the leash.

    Chip has been around young children and does great. He is unknown around babies or toddlers. He is curious about cats and a little forward with them so he may have to learn cats are not likely to play with him.

    Due to Chip’s past (or his love of people) he does not like to be left alone. He has exhibited some separation anxiety, and will need to be securely crated when left home alone until he becomes more confident and secure that he has truly found his forever home.

    Chip will do best in a home with a fenced yard due to his interest in wildlife, as he is easily distracted by squirrels and deer.

    Sadly, Chip is heartworm positive. He needs a family willing to take him through heartworm treatment and help keep him calm and comfortable. He will pay you back tenfold with his love and affection.
