Chip, Australian cattle dog
Chip is a handsome male Australian cattle dog dog currently residing at Australian Cattle Dog Rescue Association, Inc.
Chip will get along great with other dogs. He has mastered his house-training etiquette. He's been vaccinated and neutered.
Here's more about Chip:
Chip is a 3-year-old neutered male, who loves people, riding in the car and being included in everything you do. He would do best as the only dog or with one other very tolerant and social dog. He has been learning to be a good running partner and will need some sort of daily exercise to keep him happy. He will require a patient owner, who will be willing to work on his behavior with him. He has a lot of desire to chase, so a cat-free home would be best. Children ages 10 and older are best suitable for this pup.
