Labradoodle Rescue & Goldendoodle Rescue
I just can't say enough about Chance, my latest foster. Chance came to live with me and my fur boys on Saturday from his foster Mom Kristen in Alabama. Kristen is getting married this week and was going to have to board Chance while all that was taking place. But as the DRC volunteers always do, she put him first and put out a call for a home. That's where Jeannine and Jacquie came in, and me, too.
Chance, so I was told, suffers from separation anxiety when he is the only dog in the household. Well, since I have 2 dogs we'll just test that theory. I have left Chance unkenneled with my dogs while going out on short errands on Monday and today. He has done beautifully!!! No crying, no damage, no nothing.
I walk all three dogs on leashes at the same time (that's approximately 150 lbs of dogs) and no problem (and I'm not all that young). He loves to walk, go to our dog park to play fetch with the tennis balls, and he sits on command for a treat (we're working on doing so other times). Baby steps. Someone clearly has worked with him because he brings them back, too, and drops them most of the time. He plays well with others as long as they are not too rambuncious (we're having a small issue with a very feistyfemale german shepherd puppy) because then he barks at them which makes them even more nervous. He is not resource aggressive, loves everyone but mostly likes to lay down and rest after exercise.
Chance sleeps in my bedroom with my pack but only on the floor and has not attempted to sit on the furniture or bed. He is really a gentleman. . . er, dog. Right now he's my shadow but he is beginning to venture away from where I am in the house to see what he foster brothers are up to. I think he will become more relaxed and comfortable as time goes by or when he is finally in his forever home. Chance is going to make some family a wonderful addition and a great guardian. Just wanted to let ya'll know about this wonderful boy. If I had a house he'd be a keeper (but then I say that about all my fosters and most of Frannie Spector's fosters, too). That's probably why I live in a condo - self-imposed restrictions. I'll get some new photos soon but he is already on Petfinder.
