Chance’s “gotcha day/birthday to me” is February 1, 2020. He is a joy and fit right into my lifestyle. He enjoys going to work with me, loves long walks and just hanging out. He went on his first ski trip and loved hanging out in the ski house with 8 people and another dog. He thought the snow was fun too.
My kitty Momma Mia is finally hanging out with us again and he is no longer chasing her (hence the name change.
I couldn’t be happier with him, especially during these crazy times. Someone called him my support dog and I think we support each other.
Hi! I’m Ace (#3278), but my foster parents call me Chase because I am full of personality and love playing chase with my dog friends around the yard. Although I may not understand many English words, my foster family tells me I am very smart. Whenever they give me the command to “come (here)”, I immediately come running because I know I will be treated to some welcome love and attention. They don’t even have to tell me twice! Within a couple days with them, they taught me to sit and I learned to “high 5” for a treat.
Although I am only 1-2 yrs old, I am very calm, polite, and obedient. I do LOVE to play with other dogs and am very well adjusted around male and female dogs of all sizes and ages. I do get really excited when I meet a new human and like to jump up to hug them, but we are working on my greeting manners and I am catching on. When not playing with my dog friends, I really enjoy some snuggle time with my humans.
I am a well-adjusted dog that doesn’t need a lot of attention but when I first arrived in my foster home I was very nervous and stressed from my trip. My foster family has given me lots of love and tells me every day what a good boy I am, that made the transition much easier for me. They don’t know anything about my previous family and home but they think I was well treated and trained from the time I was a puppy. My foster family thinks I was fed in the kitchen from the refrigerator since whenever food is taken out I get really excited and I watch intently for my turn to eat, but I don’t counter surf or take anything I’m not supposed to.
My foster family has 2 SUPER FUN Goldens, one of them is older so I don’t really play with her at all, but the other is about my age and we have the BEST TIME EVER!!! They also have a cat that loves dogs and lets me sniff her once in a while. I’ve tried to get her to play by gently jumping towards her but it’s no use, she’s just not as fun as playing with my dog friends so I am fine letting her keep her distance.
The other day I got a bath at this fun dog wash place. There were lots of other dogs and noise from blow driers and barking dogs, but I didn’t mind at all. I kind of enjoy getting a bath, and boy am I soft afterwards! I also don’t mind at all getting my nails clipped, ears cleaned, or teeth looked at. All this pampering makes me feel like a king!
During the day I am perfectly content to hang out with my dog friends in their massive dog kennel, or if it’s too cold outside I am completely crate trained and content in either place while my foster parents are at work. Sometimes I get to go to doggy daycare for more socializing and dog play, what a blast!
I am going to miss my foster family SO much but they have promised me that there is a perfect family with a fun dog to play with that is waiting for a dog just like me.
Ace is being fostered in Boring, OR.
