Meet Chance

Hi, my name is Chance! I got my name from a kind woman in Texas who saved me from the streets after my owner dumped me there when he didn't want me any more. She made sure I got into rescue so I could have a better life. After coming to Wisconsin I got into a foster home with other dogs and even a cat, and my foster mom has been able to learn a lot about me the last few weeks.

My foster mom would tell you I am one of the most fun, cuddly, energetic fosters she has ever had! That is probably because I am a basset mix of some type and the vet person thinks Vizsla is a good guess. I am very friendly with people and will jump right up into your lap, but I can take a few minutes before I am comfortable with someone new. Despite being a good eater, I have stayed trim by being busy! I really like to play "fetch" with a stick or a squeaky. I also like to run around and wrestle with other dogs. I can be loving and sweet with them too. I have done well with a dog savvy cat and know to leave him be but I would NOT be safe with other critters as I go crazy after the squirrels and anything else I can see in the yard.

Speaking of yards, a fenced yard would be good for my running time BUT I can jump pretty high so it really needs to be tall and secure if I will be out there running free. I also like to let myself out there if the door isn't latched tight or is easy to open. I have been digging a few holes because I am a dog! I would love a family to walk me daily but I do need work on that. I am a strong boy with a low center of gravity. My mom is home much of the time so I do go outside regularly during the day. I have not had problems waiting to potty outdoors and seem to be potty-trained but she doesn't really know how I would do if home alone more often since I haven't had to be. I have not had to be crated when she does leave for short trips. As long as I have plenty of toys out, I leave other things alone. However, my mom does make sure things are picked up so I am not tempted.

I have discovered I really love the couch, so I wouldn't do well in a no-dogs-on-the-furniture-home. I also love sleeping in bed with my mom. I am a world class snuggle bug. When I am awake and get excited, I do have a very loud voice that would prevent me from being a good candidate for an apartment or condo, or any other living situation with close neighbors. I am very food motivated and that is helping me start to learn some basic commands. I need a family to continue with my training. I also like cat food so that needs to be kept in a safe place and I taught my foster mom not to leave it on the table because I can find it there too. I love to ride in the passenger seat of the car and go to dog-friendly places.

So basically I have a really loving personality that basset people love, but I also need an active owner to keep up with the Vizsla side of me as well. And as a young guy, I still need training work to help me become the most perfect doggo. If that could be you, please fill out the adoption application under the "Adoption" heading at our website so a volunteer can reach out to you.
