Hi! My name is Chance.  I am a bit overweight at 26 pounds, but with frequent walks and monitored food allowances I will trim down nicely. I’ve already lost several pounds!

I am also neutered, microchipped, heartworm negative, and fully vaccinated. I am good with other dogs and cats! I am also housetrained, and I walk well on a leash.

My favorite place to be at the end of the day is right next to you snuggled on the couch. Wherever you are, that’s where I want to be! I am very loyal and have so much love to give. A long time ago I was very mistreated, so it takes me a minute to trust someone new and to remember I am worthy of all the love and pets. I love to greet my foster mom when she comes home and although I don’t really know how to play, I sure do try! I will be your best friend if you let me. My heart is so big.


So let me tell you why I am in foster care: My family has been very kind to me over all of these years, but I was not happy with their new tiny human addition. While in foster care I have been very withdrawn and spend most of my time hiding in my crate. But I just know that with the right family I will flourish into the happy go lucky boy I once was.

Are you the one? Will you take a chance on me?

Chance is being fostered in Fredericksburg, VA and is available for an adoption fee of $375.00.  Applications to adopt may be summitted via the following website.
