If you are looking for an adventure partner… here is your guy! Chap LOVES the 💦 water 💦 so any of you who have AQUAFILIA, please take the time to meet him! On top of being a lover of water, Chap also resides on a horse farm and follows the employees around, he considers himself also an employee, they say he has a strong recall, good listening skills✅ (Chap for hire, seeking barn management position!👋🏽 ) He has no issues being around the horses … horse broke, check! ✅ Any horse 🐴 people out there? I think Chap would be willing to coincide with humans in a number of ways… he is clearly a lover of many things.
Chap takes a little bit to warm up, but once he knows you he is incredibly sweet and gentle. He loves to give and get attention. He responds great to commands - his name, sit, down, give paw. He is potty trained, good around people (and older kids!) and is dog friendly (especially females).
▪️ 5 years old
▪️UTD on shots
▪️Current location: Royal Palm Beach, FL
Chap needs people who will give him time to win them over. We don’t think that will take long-with his dashing good looks and big ole smile. He is waiting patiently in his stall for you to come by and make his tail wag!!
Below is a write up of Chaps past and it’s really, really sad. Chap has had a rough beginning of his life, and despite that, he is admiringly resilient and forgiving of humans. I share this to show you how deserving he is of a BETTER LIFE. If you can't handle hearing about violence to animals, STOP READING.
Otherwise, here goes this sad and disturbing tale:
Chap was found as a stray and brought to Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control. While he was there, a rescue organization picked him up and took him under their care. Except it wasn’t “care” that this dog got. The people running the rescue were pathological and deranged. They shot and killed seven dogs. Chap was witness to this unthinkable event.
Another rescue came and took him in. But THEY were deranged as well. The lady running this “rescue” collected donations that she used for herself while she completely neglected the animals under her “care.” Chap was found locked in a kennel and covered in his own feces when this lady got caught, and then Chap ended up right back at Palm Beach County Animal Care and Control.
You'd think the story got better from there, but, no, it does not. The shelter was running out of room. They started doubling up on dogs in kennels. After already 2 horrifying and stressful experiences in his past, Chap was not ready to be cooped up/locked in with anyone. The shelter had no space to house him alone and with no prospective fosters, they set him up to be euthanized. So, once again, Chap watched as his dog friends were put down and thrown out, while he awaited his turn.
Now here he is, he will never be let down again, and in order for that to happen, we need your help! Please give Chap a chance… come meet him!
