Chipper. The name says it all about our new FSD ambassadog, a career-changer who will be representing FSD and showing off her service dog skills at fundraisers, speaking engagements, and educational events in Denver and around the country.
This lively and lovable standard poodle was released from our training program due to early signs of hip dysplasia and adopted by our very own Director of Communications Erin Conley. Says proud mama Erin, “Chipper loves to learn and work, and she’s looking forward to serving as an advocate on behalf of service dogs and their human partners.”
When she’s off the clock, Chipper enjoys snuggling with her 16-year-old dog brother, Rocco, and entertaining her adoring new family with her silly poodle antics. “Chipper is quite the athlete and loves to fetch; any basic Wilson will do,” says Erin. “Her other hobbies include clowning and contortionism—she can make herself incredibly small for such a big dog!—and she is serious about snuggling. We love Chipper dearly and are thrilled that she’s going to help increase awareness of FSD’s life-changing work and the amazing things a custom-trained service dog can do for our clients with disabilities.”
