Pet of the Week: Who can resist a Chip?


CULLMAN, Ala. – Cullman County Animal Shelter volunteer Donna Ruttkay shared with The Tribune our most recent Pet of the Week, Luna, has been adopted. Here she introduces readers to a fun new friend who’s looking for his forever home.  

Chip is a 1-year-old miniature Aussie mix.  He’s a playful, medium- to high-energy pup described as a “happy young fellow who loves life and all about him.”  While he does enjoy play time, he is a submissive pet who likes to stay close to his humans and get in a little rest time in your lap.

Chip has the makings of a companion, therapy or emotional support dog.

Animal shelter staff and volunteers work with their dogs to make sure they are accustomed to being around people, walking on a leash and practicing good behavior.  Several of the shelter’s dogs have even been “hired” to work as therapy and special needs service dogs.

Chip’s adoption fee is $90 which includes: DHLPP vaccine, Bordetella vaccines, rabies vaccine, wormer, general exam at the vet, neutering, microchip, free 30-day health insurance policy issued by 24PetWatch (with valid email only) and a free bag of food from Cullman Pet Depot (you must pay sales tax).

Please consider adopting to give a rescued pet a chance at a happy and healthy life.
