Chance (Neutered)'s Story...
"Chance" is a gorgeous 8-year old male Golden Retriever mix who was surrendered by his family on October 14, 2016 because Chance's master had been hospitalized and was no longer able to care for his beloved pet :( "Chance" has a reddish-brown medium smooth coat with white highlights on his chest/paws, a long fluffy tail, and a darling face with a dusting of white on his muzzle, a black button nose, and short floppy ears. This sweet boy has a calm, gentle personality and has melted several hearts already. "Chance" has been kept indoors and is housebroken. He loves his people friends (including children) but does not do well with cats or small dogs. "Chance" is ok with larger dogs who are close to the same size as he is. His previous owner described Chance as a lapdog :) "Chance" walks gently on a leash. He weighs 62.2 lbs.."Chance" is being temporarily listed as a 'Special Needs Dog' since he has some tumors on his legs and stomach. He will be checked out by a local veterinarian asap.
We are a non-profit shelter giving refuge to homeless and abandoned animals in Washington County Ohio. We strive to make their time here as comfortable as possible. We work very hard with our rescue groups to move our animals quickly and safely. We do this because we work for those who have no voice.
Rescue groups are encouraged to contact our Canine Rescue Coordinator (email@example.com) or Feline Rescue Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org)
