Luke

Luke13 (AKA Chip, as in "Chocolate Chip")  can’t wait to be part of your family!   He is a 1 year old, 56 lb. dog who has a ton of great qualities, the best of which is his love and loyalty to his people.  If you are looking for a dog who will love you to the moon and back, Chip is your guy!  He is crate trained and actually likes being in his crate, he sleeps through the night without a peep, he's housebroken, enjoys riding in the car, loves playing fetch, likes the baja step on the pool and may be a swimmer, and gets along great with dogs he lives with.   He craves and loves attention from the people he lives with and he gives a lot of love back.  When Chip was new to DLRR from the county shelter, we found that he displayed some fear reactivity to people and dogs when he was out on walks.  He probably had not been socialized at all as a puppy–he was frightened by many unfamiliar things out in the world.  He had similar reactivity to new people coming into his foster home, so DLRR arranged for professional training that addressed those issues.  Being super smart and very food motivated, Chip has been an excellent student and has made wonderful progress!  He is ready to be adopted, and the great news is that Luke's trainer provides 5 free lessons to his adopters so they can learn the commands he knows, the protocols he's used to, and they can keep his skills finely tuned.  Chip will thrive with adopters who are willing to put the time and energy into continuing his training.  His adopters will be rewarded with a fun and energetic dog!  If you think Chip could complete your household, please call to set up a meeting!
