Foster Needed: Take a Chance!

November 12, 2012

Chance needs you to take a chance on him…

En route to San Diego

En route to San Diego

Chance is male, altered, probably about 11 months old, up to date on his shots, heart and other worm-free. He arrived from Shreveport, LA yesterday (Sat the 10th) and went into foster in Oceanside. Unfortunately, he needs to find a new foster home ASAP. The 2 dogs already in the home are seniors – 10 and 12 years old – and they didn’t take too kindly to having this young whippersnapper invade their space and wanting to play with him. They’ve started acting out and one has even bitten him now.


Chance is a GREAT dog and a wonderful snuggler. The only thing he did wrong in is current foster is want to play too much. He gets along great with other dogs, has really good body language with them, just doesn’t read their body language very well. He’s not aggressive with cats but he does chase them and want to bat them around a bit. So I would not advise a house with cats unless the cats are PRO’s at putting a dog in his place.

See? I sweep too!

He’s a very young adult, so he’s got a lot of energy. But he’s also super smart and could learn quickly in the right environment.

Please???? Anyone in the San Diego area??? We need to get him into a better situation unless is forever home can find him!! Please contact us at if you’d like to help or want more info about this sweet boy.

We received the saddest plea in our inbox this week.  From the shelter volunteer:

The first words I heard about Carnation (just a puppy at 7 months old, 33 pounds) were: “We can’t euthanize her. She is sitting in that cage playing with her toys!!!” What a doll this little brindle girl is! Sweet, loving with other dogs, just an angel who, unfortunately, will require a visit to an orthopedic vet to find out about her limp on the rear leg. FHO surgery is a possibility for her. But, we can raise funds if there is a rescue who will save her life. If medical staff is willing, we must support them!!!

Then, from today’s evaluation:

…the best I could do was take Carnation and walk her through [the treatment] room, with other dogs barking and growling at her.  She did not react other than to go up, sniff, and wag her tail  —  and, in fact, backed away from a momma terrier with pups who was making it know that she was not wanted in that area!  I asked a couple of the ACT’s who have spent time in medical and, without hesitation, everyone agreed that Carnation is sweet, polite, and non-reactive.  They even said she was quiet in her cage  —  though I’m sure once healthy she will be romping about non-stop. 

We really, really, REALLY want to help this sweetheart!  She looks so much like Fiona, it’s just eating us up inside – her deadline is FRIDAY, SEPT 28!!  But we have NO ROOM.  None. We’ve got people willing to help us raise the money for the possible leg surgery and physical therapy, but she needs a place to GO, i.e., a FOSTER HOME.

Please, San Diego, we really, really need your help!  Is there anyone who would be willing to open their heart and their home to this little angel? We will provide a crate, food, and cover all vet expenses. She just needs a place to stay either until space opens up elsewhere or until she’s adopted, whichever comes first.

There have been NO OTHER RESCUES inquiring about this sweet girl, and she deserves a chance at a life! We NEED to save the breed ambassadors so they can go on to change the negative opinion of others about this remarkable breed.  This girl sounds like an EXCELLENT ambassadog!!

If you can help, please contact Kelly at Time is of the essence, please contact us right away!!

Thank you!!
