English Springer Spaniel
Field Spaniel, Mix

An adotable dog in Garfield Heights, OH

  • Adult
  • Medium
  • Male


Chip is a good-looking 2-3 year-old Spaniel mix male with a great disposition that 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 he went through heartworm treatment upon his arrival here.

Chip finished up his heartworm treatment and is now heartworm negative. Once he was off cage rest from heartworm treatment, and able to exercise, we discovered that he has hip dysplasia. He had surgery to correct the left hip, and our vet feels that the right hip should be fine without surgery. He’s likely to develop arthritis as he gets older and is currently on glucosamine supplements.

Chip gets along fine with other dogs and he seems to be okay with cats too. He’s crate trained and housetrained. 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 below.

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 [email protected] if you’re interested in Chip.
