When I saw Chance’s silly smiley face in Wayside Waifs’ latest newsletter, I knew immediately that he’d be this week’s featured adoptable! Chance is an adult male Labrador/Retriever mix who has been through quite a lot in his relatively short six years. Here’s Wayside Waifs with the details:

Meet Chance! This senior Retriever mix is one of the coolest dogs you’ll ever meet. He came into Wayside when his owner feared for his safety and wanted him to find a loving home of his own.
The reason his previous owner worried about his safety is that Chance has one tiny bad habit. He chases cars. Since his owner didn’t have a fence, Chance put his life at risk everytime he would chase cars. In fact, Chance was run over twice by a vehicle, but this tough guy lived to tell the tale. This guy is more like a cat with his nine lives.
Chance is one cool dog. He loves pretty much everybody he meets. He loves other dogs, and we were even told that he was affectionate and loving with the cats he lived with. In fact the cat in the house would curl up with Chance, and they would nap together. He has lived with children and done well. Of course, he prefers children that are respectful of him and are always kind to him. Chance’s previous owner said he was a wonderful dog. When his mom was sick in bed, he would slowly creep into bed with her. He would like lengthwise in the bed and put his arm over his owner as if he was bear hugging her!!! What a sweetie pie!
We were also told that Chance is boat savvy, and he loves to swim. His previous owner took him on their boat whenever they could, and Chance would swim until his heart was content. Then he would climb back in the boat when he had enough! His previous owners said their favorite characteristics about him was what a playful, cuddley, fisherman he is, and that he is a distinguished old man.
“Won’t you please, please bring me home with you!?” Chance’s big brown eyes implore. Photo courtesy Wayside Waifs.
Chance is housetrained, and he knows “sit,” “stay,” “down,” and “shake.” He also knows the term “babies” for his toys and go “night-night.” Chance was a well loved dog, and he will make a special family very happy! Is that family yours? Come see for yourself!
