I am already neutered, up to date with shots, and good with dogs.
Chance is a sweet and fun loving dog. He still has lots of puppy energy and would do best in a home that can provide a good amount of daily exercise. He has been a good boy in the house. He hasn't chewed anything he shouldn't but the foster provides lots of exercise and lots of toys, etc for him to chew. He likes the resident dogs and gets along with them well. But he really loves people! He'd rather be with people than the other dogs. He follows his foster everywhere around the house and curls up at their feet when they're sitting. Besides his loyalty, he displays some other Shepard traits, such as being protective, so he would do best in an experienced dog home. He's had a few accidents in the house at first but has been better recently. He's not far from being completely housebroken. He sleeps in a kennel in the foster's bedroom at night. Typically the fosters are home during the day but if the foster does leave, he goes into the laundry room with another dog. Chance has been exposed to cats. He would do best with a tolerant or patient cat. He likes the cats but is quite exuberant around them and some cats might find that quite annoying. He tries to play with them by poking his nose at them, etc. He has also been exposed to a guinea pig that lives in the foster's house. He was quite curious at first but now he mostly ignores it. Chance is starting to learn basic obedience commands and is doing well. Like any other young dog, he would need continued work with basic obedience. Also, he is not much of a barker. Even if other dogs are barking, he usually doesn't. Overall, he's a loving and happy boy. Chance is 10-12 months old and about 50 lbs. Since we don't know at all what doggy genes are in the dogs make up (we don't know who mom and dad are!), we are just guessing on breed.
All dogs are spayed or neutered prior to adoption. They have all had a vet exam, are up to date on vaccinations, have been given a dewormer, are treated for fleas, have a heartworm test if over 6 months old and are up to date on a heartworm preventative.
Please note that because we require a home visit at the time of adoption we can only place animals in homes within a 60 mile radius of Minneapolis.If you are interested in meeting this dog please fill out the pre-adoption application on our website at http://www.safehandsrescue.org under Adopt and we will get back to you to arrange a meeting in the foster home.
We also have an Adoptable Dog Meet & Greet on Saturday January 23, 2016, at Fetch Delivers Warehouse, 783 Harding St. NE. Suite 150, Minneapolis, MN 55413, from noon - 2 pm. Occasionally dogs cannot make it to the Meet & Greet, therefore feel free to verify if your dog of interest is able to attend. Please bring a copy of your pre-adoption application.
