Needs to have a fenced environment and would benefit from obedience training.
Sweet Chase was a relinquishment by his busy family who wanted him to have the best life possible. This high energy boy will need an active home and would benefit from obedience training. He has been fully vetted and off to his foster home. More updates to come!

Chase is a sweet, young, energetic boy that came to GRIN as an owner relinquishment. His original family didn't have time for him and he needs to learn better manners, but he's smart, eager to please his foster parents, and is motivated by food. He sits well and is learning to sit and wait before he goes outside. He resisted going in his crate at first but that was easily solved by putting his food dish and treats in the crate, followed by brief periods with the door shut. He now goes into his crate easily at night and although he may bark a few times, he settles down quickly. He's been in his foster home for only a week and is taken outside frequently and seems to be house trained.
Chase is a puppy at heart and is full of energy. It's been a challenge to limit his exercise following his neuter. He tries to counter surf and grab food or interesting things within his reach. His victims have included pens, papers, toys, and the corner of a coffee table!
Chase is highly social. He welcomes people and enjoys affection and play. Happily, he's a natural retriever and will return a ball or toy as long as his foster mom is willing to play. He's been wonderful with all the resident dogs from the first sniff. He has shown no food or toy resource guarding; in fact, he and one of the resident dogs actually share a toy by tossing it back and forth.
