Chance joined LR family on 10/12. He was happy to be out of the shelter! Chance was found as stray and brought to OC shelter. We are surprised no one came and claimed him. He is super friendly and a very happy boy. He likes people, especially the ones will give him yummy treats! He also takes treats gently and will sit when asked! We are glad we got him out of the shelter!

Chance has some skin issues, an ear infection, and is a bit under weight. These are the typical issues with stray Labs when they're first brought in. No worries, we are taking care of him now. We think he will recover nicely once he is placed in his foster home. Please come back and check on his update.

Foster Update - 10/21/22

We've had Chance for a little over a week now and he is a real gem! Under Veterinary care, Chance's skin and ears are showing definite signs of improvement. He has a follow-up exam on 10/28 and will have some dental work done at that time too. His coat is already starting to fill back in nicely. He is on a high calorie diet and is putting on some much needed weight. He will soon reach his ideal weight.

He is one of the happiest dogs we have ever encountered. He has the most severe case of Happy, Happy, Tippy Tappy feet I have ever seen. The Vet indicated there is no cure for this condition but it can be carefully controlled and maintained by giving Chance lots of love and affection. Chance is living with four female companions and gets along great with all of them. Chance is a mildly Velcro dog and has no problems displaying his affection for you. Chance knows some commands and seems to have been trained somewhere along in his life. He is a slow, neat eater and takes his treats gently. He has not shown any signs of resource guarding or food aggression. He does not beg at the dinner table. Chance has not demonstrated any separation anxiety and is trustworthy when left alone. He does however counter surf and has had one encounter with the garbage can. Chance is a mellow, medium to low energy guy. He has no problems lazing around the house but does love to go for walks. He handles great on a leash and has shown no reactivity to other dogs or people while out on a walk. He sleeps through the night and is housebroken. Chance will be a fantastic addition to any family.
