Chance is a 4 1/2-year-old Golden mix being fostered in Minot, ND. He's a very handsome boy that came into RAGOM after sitting at the pound for 2 months and was at the top of the list to be euthanized. RAGOM saw his plea for help and offered to take him in. Chance says, "Thank you, RAGOM!!!" His previous owner had turned him over to the pound because they thought he looked ugly, but what Chance had was demodectic mange that went untreated. He was treated for the mange at the pound and once he arrived at my home, we made a quick trip to the vet because he was still itching a lot and his skin looked very sore and tender. Chance had developed a yeast infection on his skin and in his ears. Treatment was started right away and now he's all healed up, minus some hair. Chance's hair will grow back and his coat will fill in nicely over time.
Chance is a happy and wonderful boy that is learning quickly what it's like to live in a home vs the pound setting. He gets along with all my dogs and cats and loves to play with my bigger dog. Chance loves to run in the yard and play fetch, so I'd really like to see Chance's forever home have a fenced-in yard. I don't think he would do well on a tie-out if you were to leave him unattended. He is very focused on his people and would easily figure out a way to break away from the tie-out and look for you. Chance will jump a 4-ft fence if you're on the other side of it and he wants to get to you, but once he learns you're coming back inside the fenced-in yard, he'll not jump the fence. Chance can be a stinker sometimes and find his way out of the house to follow you if you didn't leave the door securely latched.
Chance is partially blind or fully blind in his right eye. A cataract has developed on it from a previous injury. It doesn't impede his ability to do whatever he wants to do. The only time I notice him showing it's effecting his visibility is when he's looking at something that really interests him. He'll then turn his head to the left to see better.
What I can tell you about Chance -
Chance perfect home would be with a Mom/Dad or family that wants a companion that likes to walk, explore, do social and fun activities together, has a fenced yard and will take him to Obedience class. He's not a high energy dog, but a dog that has experienced the good life now, loves it and wants to be a part of it!!! He'll be completely vetted and neutered on the 5th of Oct. and then ready for adoption. If you feel Chance is the right dog for your family please contact your placement adviser.
