BIO: Chipper is a sweet, sweet boy! Chipper came from a shelter in East Tennessee where his owners dumped him. He came into rescue at a whopping 31 pounds. We’ve helped him lose 8 pounds but he needs to lose about 7 more. While doing his vetting, it was discovered he has Cushing's Disease and will need to be on Vetoryl for this condition. Just one pill a day, no big deal. Our wish list for him includes:
No apartments or high rises
A fenced yard is preferred
Another dog his age to keep him company if you have to leave the house
Aware that the medications will cost about $40.00 per month
As Chipper is losing weight he is becoming more active so we hope he will have a fenced yard so he can wander and enjoy the sunshine. He does great walking on a leash. Chipper is a very friendly boy and is a joy to foster. Please consider him for adoption, he will give you unconditional love for the rest of his life!

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============
If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above. They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal.
We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate.
We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.
To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page. Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.
Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well. For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
