Chip - UPDATE 11/8

English Springer Spaniel
Field Spaniel, Mix

An adotable dog in Garfield Heights, OH

  • Young
  • Medium
  • Male

UPDATE 11-8-13: Chip finished up his heartworm treatment in August. Now that he's off cage rest and and able to exercise, we've discovered that he has hip dysplasia. He is scheduled for surgery on November 19th. He will need about 4-6 weeks of recovery/rehab before he'll be ready for adoption. Chip gets along fine with other dogs and he's seems to be okay with cats too. He likes chew toys and chasing squirrels. He also likes a good nap. He can be a little shy but does warm up quickly. Be sure to check out his video. Chip is a good-looking 2 year-old Spaniel mix male with a great disposition who came into a rural county dog pound as a stray with his two sisters, Belle and Tink. When they weren't claimed, all three dogs made their way to Canine Lifeline. Chip had the misfortune of testing positive for heartworms so went through heartworm treatment upon his arrival here. He started his treatment the first week of July and is now ready for adoption. Chip is a sweet, calm, and gentle dog who loves attention from people and gets along well with other dogs. He adjusted very well to 30 days of cage rest post-heartworm treatment. Chip may be housetrained as well although we can't guarantee it. He's got beautiful markings and a longer coat that will require regular brushing and grooming to keep him looking and feeling his best. Chip weighs about 40 pounds and his adoption fee is $200. He's neutered, current on monthly heartworm preventative, up-to-date on vaccinations, wormed, on flea preventative, and microchipped. All Canine Lifeline adoptions come with a two-week trial period to make sure it's a great match before the adoption is finalized. Please email info@caninelifeline.org if you're interested in Chip. Chip's heartworm treatment cost about $400. Donations to help with his care can be made through Paypal on our website and are greatly appreciated. Thanks from Chip and Canine Lifeline!
