One day while in the yard, a cattle dog came up into our yard. Because of my young son, my husband immediately shoo'd him off. This dog kept coming back always finding his way into our yard. After three attempts to shoo the dog away, my husband finally decided that this dog must be a pet that was lost. He had no identification so I introduced him slowly to my son and this dog could have cared less of a little one running around. I assumed him to be a senior dog because he didn't want to move. I had to coax him into the backyard to go to the "potty". My husband took him to the Humane Society to see if he was micro-chipped, but he was not. The staff were happy to take him on as he was such a sweet, laid back dog. My husband immediately resisted. This dog obedient to a fault. He wasn't about to leave him in a shelter. I got him an appointment with a vet and they gave him his vaccinations. I asked the tech about his age, knowing that I would likely have only a couple of years left with this dog. After checking his teeth, turns out he was only 2. After my initial shock, I rushed this "pup" home and lathered him up with treats and toys to get him out of the depression the vet believed he was in. From that point on, this family member has thrived in my house. He is a loving, loyal pup who only wants to please his humans. He always feels like he'll be left behind. He's protective of the family if any strangers should wander up, but won't hesitate to let my son lay on him like a pillow. He is the MOST well behaved dog I never had to train. Even though fliers and online posts were issued...no one ever claimed this sweet heart. So, my husband decided to name him Chance...as this was his Second Chance at a good life. One I believe he is living to the fullest!
