We adopted Chip (FVHA name was “Ranger”) about 4 months ago.  At that time, he was a very shy dog that had much to learn.  I spent a little time researching his history to help me better understand his background and how we could help him grow.  When Chip joined our family, he didn’t have a name, didn’t know any commands and didn’t even know how to play with toys.  In the last 4 months, we have worked extensively and consistently with Chip to teach him “how to be a dog” and he has responded amazingly.  He has turned into the most affectionate, loving and well-trained dog a family could ask for.  He is such an intelligent dog and our goal is to keep teaching him new things so continues to grow and flourish.  We are so happy to have him as a part of our family and we cannot imagine our family without him.
