CHOP is a 7 year old Lab/Shepherd mix. He loves to play fetch with our staff, and he keeps a clean kennel. He was adopted briefly, and he bonded quickly with his person but was returned because he became protective over his new owner. He needs someone who does not mind having a dog that will guard and protect. Chop is a very intelligent, food-motivated guy who is eager to please. His favorite time of the day is cuddle time! Seriously, if you had all day to rub Chop's belly, he would be all for it! If you think Chop might be a good fit for you, consider filling out your application so staff can schedule a time for you to meet this adorable boy! You must have an approved application, an individual appointment, and come in person to adopt one of our dogs. If you have another dog in your home, we do require a meet and greet to determine the compatibility of the animals. We do not transport them. We are a small, rural shelter in PA. The closest city is Pittsburgh.
