Chipper came to Carolina Poodle Rescue via a hoarder. He came to us heartworm positive, but has completed treatment and has tested negative. He is now healthy and will need to be kept on monthly preventative just like any other dog.

Chipper is one of many dogs seized from a hoarder in Abbeville, South Carolina.  The poor guy was living in filthy deplorable conditions-no clean water, dirty matted hair, feces, etc.  Chipper deserves a nice home with a loving family that can meet all his needs.   He would make a great family pet and he gets along well with older considerate children.

Chipper is a total love bug when he wants to be.  He wants nothing more than to be with his human and will follow you everywhere once he trusts you , but will sometimes guard you.  Chipper loves to climb on your lap and lay his head on your shoulder while being petted. He gets along well with other dogs, but is much more interested in people but, needs a patient owner.  Chipper is eager to please and could easily be taught some basic commands.  Chipper is crate trained and hops right in when its bedtime.  

Chipper was previously adopted but then returned due to resource guarding his owner and not getting along with the new dog brought into the home. When Chipper commits, he commits hard. He would do great with a single person that would be willing to earn his trust.

Chipper is cautious and wary of new people more so men than women, but he warms up fairly quickly. He needs someone who is very patient and will give him time to warm up to you. 


Can’t have a dog of your own? Have a soft spot for old, sick or hard to place dogs? It only takes a $20 a month donation for me to be your virtual dog! I need at least 10 virtual adopters (sponsors) to help cover my monthly costs.  If I have medical challenges I need even more! r having to leave your home, you can have your very own online dog that will send you update emails, make Facebook posts, and be eternally grateful for your support!  Go to the donate link at the top of the page for instructions as to how to donate.

I love my Virtual Adopters! CHRISTA C, CHRISTINE C
