Needs to have a fenced environment and would benefit from obedience training.
We know that Chance was struck by a car in Turkey and a volunteer took him to see a vet and they operated on his toes. He’s calmer than on the original intake date and he’ll remain with our vet partner’s care for the time being; they may consult a specialist.

Chance is a remarkable dog with a resilient spirit. He is happy all the time despite his having to deal with the ongoing betadine soaks and cone to prevent him from licking at his wound on his leg. He hoovers down his food as so he is using a slow feed bowl for his meals. He still eats really fast but does not show any resource guarding, but is very quick to snatch up a treat. Chance is having no problems with potty training. He loves the resident Golden. Chance crawls on the bed for cuddles & is very affectionate. He loves going to the park. Chance will need formal obedience training, but is very bright & engaging, so should be a quick learner. Chance is an absolute delight!

Chance's Week: Well, it’s been a busy week for little Chance. He is eating well & loves his food! His wound is healing nicely, despite the minor setback of his leg getting bumped when he vaulted into the car for a ride. He is getting along most of the time with his foster brother. However, Chance can be pushy at times so if he has a canine sibling, it will need to be one that is forgiving of his exuberance. Chance will need to attend formal obedience classes to continue his training. He is a wonderful boy who loves to cuddle. He does still do some submissive peeing when he gets excited seeing people, but is improving. He is quickly learning all about his new life in the US!

Hi Folks, Chance here. I have had a busy few days. When I got to my foster home, I met my foster bruddah, I like him a lot. I am a little exuberant about my love for him, especially with my special satellite dish on my head and he is a little bit pawt off by all that silliness.
I am also working on my house training & it is going excellently. I have not ever had any accidents in my crate or my special bed. I like to bounce. The peeps think I am the happiest dog they have ever seen…that’s probably a good thing, if you are me!! My leg injury is healing great..that is my medical opinion… BOL!!! I don’t really have a medical opinion, but I do know it feels better and better every day. Foster mom and dad give me treatments twice a day and I get medicine hidden in my turkey (shhh, they think I haven’t figured that pawt out yet)! I walk with this adorable little limp but I don’t tire very easily!! Foster Momma told me the sweet little swagger makes me look cute…she is right!!!
I am really hungry and I love my food but I am not a food bully. I respect my foster Bruddah’s food & even though I would like to eat his breakfast, I don’t. I am full of CUDDLES, love and affection…my cup runneth over, I am told. I really love it here, it is warm, the food is yummy, I feel safe and they give me lots of love. I am asking for a forever family to love me. I am special! I am so happy to have the ‘chance’ to heal my body, my heart and get a second chance at life and a first chance at love. So, folks, come and get me, this Chance is ready for ya!!!
