About CHASE

Chase... he`s a quirky little dude! Luckily we love the quirky pups!Chase loves his shelter friends, and most of the time he is an `easy` pup. He enjoys having his chin and neck scratched. He will lean into you for pets. He loves playing with squeaky toys. He`ll alternate between running around the play yard and staying close to you.But there are moments when Chase is a bit more complicated. He occasionally guards toys and food. This is a fairly easy behavior to work with but it does require management. Chase can sometimes be wary of new people, especially when he is with someone who he trusts. He will always need proper intros with visitors (we can help you with that!). Chase was surrendered in August 2019 because his family was moving and could not afford to take him with them. A shelter employee made a note in October that Chase was getting more stressed. So here we are more than a year later... you can imagine what his stress level is like. He`s just a youngin` (2 years old) and understandably has poor kennel presence. Chase is so eager for you to `pick me, pick me!`, he likely needs to go to the bathroom, and he`s been living in a shelter kennel for more than half of his life. That`s a lot to cope with, y`all.Chase enjoys playing with other dogs, and he has a gentle/dainty playstyle. His ideal home would be low-traffic, adult-only, and no kitties please! Chase appears to be very housetrained. He will go home with our ongoing support as well as a free training voucher!I weigh approximately 34 lbs. Click here to view my paperwork.

ANGUS

American Pit Bull Terrier

All we can think when we look at Angus is, `GAH!! How can a dog be this cute?!` That wrinkled face, the smooshy lips, the sneaky side-ey... show more

All we can think when we look at Angus is, `GAH!! How can a dog be this cute?!` That wrinkled face, the smooshy lips, the sneaky side-eye... it`s all too adorable!Angus is one of those dogs who thrives once he has some consistency and guidance. When he first arrived at the shelter, he was so afraid that he would hide under his bed. But after lots of positive interactions, Angus learned that the staff and volunteers were there to help him and take care of him. He definitely has his enthusiastic moments but he calms with appropriate redirection, and focus games are his jam! Angus loves toys and one of his favorite things to do is select a toy from the toy bin and then throw it around in the air. Yippee!Angus is always super excited to make friends. Hey new person, are you my fren? Yes! What about you, mister, you my fren, too? Ok! And that person over there not looking at me, can they also be my fren? Yay! Angus is also very dog social and enjoyed going to play group at the shelter. We think he would love to live with a doggy friend, or go on regular play dates!We know from his time in foster that Angus is house trained and crate trained. He walks nicely on a leash and wants to sniff allllll the things! Angus is still a youngin so he sometimes decides to chew on stuff he is not supposed to, but he trades nicely for a treat or an appropriate toy. Angus would do well in most home environments but we would not recommend young kiddos since he can sometimes get jumpy/mouthy when he is excited.I weigh approximately 57 lbs.
