I am available for foster or adoption
My name is Chase. I was born in July 2015 on the Indian Reservation near Kayenta, AZ. A great shelter in Mesa rescued me when I was 9 weeks old and I was adopted by a wonderful family. I loved them and they loved me so much.
Things were great for the first couple months and then I started to get very protective of my family. I didn’t want any other people around them. I did fine with the kids and the other dogs in the family, but I was not fond of cats. My family tried everything they could think of to help me adjust to other people, but I just didn’t want anything to do with people other than my family.
Their house was very busy and there were lots of visitors that would come over, which made me unhappy. After months of trying my family sent me to Pets Return Home in hopes I would learn to love other people.
My favorite things are having my belly rubbed, running around with my dog friends, and playing fetch. I really love kids too. I am very smart and know basic commands. I am extremely lovable once I get to know you and will be a loyal best friend.
Behavior Coach Notes
Chase came to us from a good family. He unfortunately became too protective of the family and they were not equipped to get Chase back under control. Since his time here he has transformed from a fearful and mistrusting dog to a confident and mostly trusting dog. He is a wonderful boy with all visitors and all dogs. He loves to swim and hike and needs that energy outlet to remain stable and not too ‘wound up’.
He will need a family that recognizes he needs socialization with humans and dogs alike. The family leader should help Chase understand that all humans are family.
