Roy (or Chance as is foster family is calling him) is an adorable teenager with cute white “freckles” and a white spot on his head. He is young and very high energy, but he so badly wants to learn what it takes to make some forever family love him and keep him and hug him and kiss him. Chance came to GRR for Furever home placement as his previous owners were unable to provide care and made a determination to turn him to the streets. Lucky for him an animal control officer moved him to a shelter.  That shelter willingly released him to GRR with hopes to find a more compatible home where this young boy can find compassion, care and guidance to live out his golden years.

Personality: Considered a puppy at eight months, Chance has proven to be an adaptable fella that enjoys a great snuggle, some soft pats and ear scratches, a gentle walk, and the company of the current foster family’s dogs. 

Chance is very intelligent and open to learning with basic tasks such as potty training, sit, stay and he is easily redirected. He moves fast and can jump over the arm of a couch in a single bound. Chance truly enjoys pleasing his people and does not mind the activities of the other older foster dogs in his current foster home.

He is a veracious chewer and will need direction when it is time to give the favored toy up. He will give you the chew toy with verbal direction and move on to something else. He has the potential to be a counter surfer as he gets so darn excited at mealtime or when anything good is going on. He even liked to participate in computer work and will get up on your lap to look at the screen.

He does best with a mid-day potty break and is demonstrating the skill of being house broken.  He currently uses a crate when the foster Mom is not at home.


He likes being with the two older foster dogs and will settle into whatever activity they are doing even if that means de-stuffing an “animal” by himself while the others are napping. He likes to use the brain teaser toys with hidden kibble treats.

He is gentle with treats and has good manners with meals.  He requires a little distraction to slow him down while eating, his foster Mom uses a plastic cup to derail the gulping of dinner.  He does best while eating and drinking out of a raised dish. 

Ideal home: Chance will do best in a family that is moderately to fully active and is able assist him with home schooling/canine citizenry. He is a young boy with an open mind to learning and he is eager to please and be one of the gang. Chance is searching for his lifetime learning companion, is it you?
