Take a CHANCE on me, that’s all I ask of you honey, Take a CHANCE on me! ♥

Chance is an exuberant young dog looking for someone dedicated to loving him. He is a bouncy, goofy fellow ready for the adventure of a lifetime with his fur-ever family. He would do best in an adult-only, dog savvy home with no other pets. Chance is doing his best learning his basic manners through positive reinforcement training and wants an owner to continue to help him learn with an Animal Kind trainer. He seems to be house trained and is clean in his kennel, however he may need some reminders as he transitions to a new home.

Chance needs a fully fenced yard where he can explore, do zoomies, and bounce around with his people while learning better social skills. He is working on his leash skills as he is quite strong and doesn’t know how to walk without pulling and jumping. He is quite food motivated which is helping him learn better leash skills, as well as working on his basic cues. He’s an active guy and is hoping to find someone to match his energy levels and would thrive with active people who want to bring him along for all the adventures.

He didn’t have a chance to learn appropriate social skills and is working on lowering his excitement levels around other dogs. He will definitely need someone willing to continue with this as he can get very bouncy and has a hard time focusing with other dogs around. He has quite a strong prey drive and wouldn’t do well with cats or other small animals in the home.

At the end of a fun day he loves to snuggle in and soak up all the chest scratches and love! He is a super lovable guy who is ready to find his fur-ever family that is dedicated to putting in the time so he can learn to be the best version of himself. Chance is an amazing dog and has tons of potential for the right person willing to put in the work!
