Spencer is a 1 year old smart, goofy, lab mix who was rescued from a small rural shelter in NC where he was set to be euthanized. He came to us severely emaciated and neglected but has thrived in his foster home. He is still a puppy at heart – at times jumpy, mouthy and wants to be the center of attention, but he responds well to corrections and is eager to learn. He has improved with his potty training and learned sit within an hour of being in his foster home. He is not the biggest fan of a crate but will settle down after a few minutes of whining and some barking. His foster home is working on basic obedience as well as getting him used to his crate. He does great sleeping in his crate at night without much fuss or any accidents. He gets along well with dogs, cats and kids. He is very playful and will benefit from being in a home with another dog that will play with him regularly. Spencer is best described as a lab with Great Dane tendencies, as he has the longest legs that he trips over in his exuberance to play. Spencer has not had the best life, he is unsure of human touch but enjoys being pet once he knows that he is not going to be hurt. He is slowly gaining much needed weight but still has a ways to go as he was not fed regularly as evidenced by his appearance. Spencer is neutered, up-to-date and microchipped. He is ready to find his forever home

About Second Chance Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

We are a small, individual, private rescue group dedicated to giving unwanted dogs and cats a second chance. Most of the animals we rescue are strays and or owner surrenders to high kill city shelters. Many of them have been pulled off “death row”. We are very passionate about what we do, we love and care for these animals unconditionally. Our goal is to place our homeless rescues in permanent loving homes as their former owners have already abandoned them at least once before.

Adoption process includes adoption application, phone interview and home visit. Vet references are checked!

Come Meet Our Pets...

We do not have a physical shelter, we place our rescues in foster homes or boarding facilities where they are socialized and nurtured back to health before we place them in their forever home. If you are interested in adopting a friend, kindly look at our available pet on this site.
