Chip is housetrainined very shy until he gets to know you, very sweet, he's did great with my 4 males & 1 female. He's very quiet in the house. Loves to be petted and walk on a leash, but playful with the other dogs. He enjoys a bath, riding in a car, being your exercise companion, very, very smart. I will finish ALL his doxy should you decide to do the slow kill method. Heartworm is treatable, simply place a tablet in food twice a day for 30 days, off two weeks, on again for 30 days. His face is GORGEOUS!! Chip resides in Hickory NC. His coat is irresistible. He's well worth his adoption fee and more.
