updated May 2016. GISELLE is a very beautiful Carolina Dog, 2yrs 5 months, spayed, microchipped with all her shots. They call her breed a"Pariah" which means ancient dog as her breed is 8,000yrs old. They were raised by the Indians, then moved to the deep South of Southern Carolina hence the name. Few people know about this breed, calling them a Shepherd mix, a Jindo x a Dingo x, but they are not, they're a breed of their own. There are very few in California, so even your vet may not know the breed. Since I've saved Giselle though, I'm in love with this stunning breed. You can also look them up on Facebook, Saving Carolina Dogs. They are pack animals, and need to always stay around people and other dogs. They can make a great family dog, as they have a very gentle disposition, loving, and great with all dogs all breeds. They do have a high prey drive, as I discovered with a rat being brought into the home! She will want to chase every squirrel around as well. Giselle is one of the prettiest dogs you'll see, with her luscious red/strawberry blonde coat, her pointed ears that actually twizzle around to hear, they have very acute hearing. Giselle is also good on leash, she'll listen to you, sits down on command. She's very intelligent, so very fast to learn. She's full of energy, wants to run and play, and bounds around fast when she wants to, so looking for an active family/owner. She will be perfect for an owner that loves the outdoors, likes to go hiking, walking, running she will have to be exercised every day. This is not a dog you can just leave to play in a yard alone, she loves to be with other dogs or people. She is also happy to lounge around the house, and almost has cat like traits. You will see her climbing onto things, for some reason she likes to climb onto my outside table. She is extremely gentel and loving and only wants to please.

About Chance Foundation

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a non profit rescue group. We rescue animals from the shelters before euthanasia. We have a huge love for the animals, and can't bare to see them senselessly destroyed. Sometimes they do find good new homes from the public coming to adopt, other times they are not so lucky. When I learnt this, I had to make a difference.

When we rescue a dog, we take it very seriously. The dog/puppy will be put into a foster home, given all veterinary, and given a new chance in life. We socialize and rehabilitate our dogs before we find forever loving homes. All dogs are spayed/neutered, and have their up to date shots. They are microchipped with ID collars.

There is nothing more rewarding in life, than to save a life. As I drive from the shelter with that dog in my truck to freedom, there is no bigger joy. This life would have been lost as the dogs we save had no other chance, and were about to be euthanized. This is why I do what I do.

Chance was a tiny puppy found in a scrap yard for car parts when I found her. We hadn't intended on finding a puppy, but when I saw her, I knew she had to come with us. Chance was an exceptional dog very much loved, and lived to be 14yrs old. She left us 1.5 yrs ago and is greatly missed. She had quite a story as a puppy with lot's of adventures, so I started my foundation 14yrs ago as through Chance a lot of other dogs came my way.

We are always looking for Foster Homes as well, so please contact us: 310 774 0055 land line or e-mail us at

Please pass the word on, that all dogs and cats need to be spayed and neutered.

Our Adoption Process...

First of all you will contact us about one of our dogs. I always like phone calls as well so we can discuss whether or not this dog would be suitable for you and your family. We will send an application before or after you meet with the dog. It will merely give us an idea of you and your family by asking a few questions. You will complete sign and return to us. We will interview you and your family, and do a home check, and ask for references. We want to make sure that our dog/puppy is a good fit for you and your family, and that you are the right home for our dog/puppy. This is a life long commitment, and we want to know that you are very serious about your new adoption. We want our dog to be in a safe environment, that it will be loved, given veterinary when needed, be taken on walks each day, be socialized, and in general be greatly taken care of. Once we feel assured that you are the right home, and that you are most definitely in love with our dog/pup, then we will do an adoption contract. If at any time during the dogs life you cannot care of the dog, it is in our contract that we will take the dog back whatever the age. You will not be allowed to give to a friend, or take to the shelter. We also ask for an adoption fee, we call this a donation. It can range from $200-$300. Rescuing dogs/puppies can be very expensive, there are shelter fees, veterinary fees, some dogs can be very sick coming out of the shelters. One dog can cost thousands before he/she ever makes it into their forever home. We also want to be able to rescue more dogs, this will help with that.
