SHELTER SUNDAY: Meet Eli (Rottweiler/German shepherd mix) and Kip (tuxedo cat)
Blue Chip Farm Animal Refuge teams up with NEPA Scene every week for Shelter Sunday, a post that features one dog, one cat, and occasionally some surprises up for adoption in the hopes of finding them a loving home.
Blue Chip Farm (974 Lockville Rd., Dallas) is a no-kill shelter, a place where no animal is too old or too unwanted to find a warm bed, good food, and most of all, love. Their mission is to provide a sanctuary where older, stray, abandoned, sick, or abused animals can wait to be adopted or simply live out their lives in safety and peace.
Visiting hours are Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday from noon-5 p.m. Other hours are available by appointment. Call 570-333-5265 or visit bcfanimalrefuge.org for more information.
What do you get when you cross two of the most popular protection breeds – Rottweiler and German shepherd – in history? Well, we’re glad you asked! You get Eli, a loyal companion, who will be at your side through thick and thin!
As a matter of fact, this particular mix of dogs is perhaps one of the most sought-after protection dog mixes in the world. Eli is a powerful animal and is super smart. With proper training and attention, we feel Eli would be a great companion dog.
While Eli is great for protection and companionship, he isn’t for everyone. He would probably not do well in an apartment, as he is very active and needs a lot of room to exercise. Eli should have a firm handler who knows how to take charge; he should be worked in order to reach his proper potential.
If you have the time (and room) for Eli, please contact Blue Chip Farm at 570-333-5265 for more information.
Kip is a loving 2-year-old black-and-white male. He is super cuddly and loves all people.
Kip would make an excellent companion for another cat… or two… or three!
