Heart-warming stories of adopted pets and the people who love them.
Happy Go Lucky Chip aka Mr. Wiggles
I am not going to lie, I was pretty apprehensive about adopting Chip because of his looks. He was listed as a mixed breed and I was terribly concerned about his Pit Bull resemblance. He’s a very strong dog and was pulling me all over the place when we stopped at the dog store to get supplies on our way home. Luckily for me the trainer was in the store and approached us and gave me some wonderful tips. The biggest tip of all was his suggestion of a Wonder Walker harness. This harness is the most amazing thing ever. We had to go to another pet store to get it and it was totally worth it. It was an instant difference! It was recommended that I get a chain leash as he likes to grab the leash and play tug with it. While he does this once in awhile, it is no longer an issue. Chip had several accidents in the house for the first two days. I started to seared him with treats for going potty outside and we’ve had no more accidents! Today was the first day I went back to work since getting him and was terribly concerned about barking and a potty accident but neither happened! He’s been wonderful with all of the neighbors and their dogs so far and everyone loves him! He even went to the dog park on Tuesday and did fantastic! I kept him on his leash until he had a chance to meet the dogs that were there and when I could see that everything alone good I let him loose. If things got touch with the other dogs he would just escape and start running and the other dogs would chase him but could never catch him because he’s so fast. I wish I could up load the video him sleeping because he snores when he sleeps and it’s loud but freaking adorable. So far so good! I think he knows he’s mine! Thank you for letting me spend the needed time with him at our meet and greet!
