Chance is now accepting applications for his perfect family.
He is a 3 year old blue-heeler cattle dog, weighing in at about 60 lbs.Chance should not be in a home with other dogs, cats, or young children. He has a strong herding drive, along with a streak of jealousy about 'his' person, and he'll push away anything he sees as a threat to his person.
Chance needs a home where he can have a job and lots of activities. As with all herding dogs, he has a tendency to do things that displease the humans when he's bored and in Chance's case, he will find something to shred or otherwise destroy.
Chance is quite nervous around anything and anyone new so needs time to get used to new things and new people. He's highly food motivated and treats are a great way to help keep him calm around new things.
He wants to be a lap dog, despite his size, and he loves to be around his people, just hanging out. He's still learning how to play.
He is amazingly well-behaved on the leash and his bathroom habits are perfect -- he won't have accidents in his crate and while he rarely barks, he will bark to tell his foster mom that he needs to go out to potty.
(No cats, no other dogs, no young children)
