I am happy to report that Rita's Chance has found a new home with Linda and Curt of San Diego. Linda and Curt are previous adopters of Cabo (who has now passed on) and doggie parents of Summer, their 16.5 year old golden. Chance was an adoption return because his family was moving and downsizing and could not take him with them. Linda and Curt were looking for a younger dog but were very considerate of Summer and wanted to make sure that she got along and was not too stressed in bringing another dog home. Chance has lived with numerous dogs of different sizes and ages and has gotten along great. He is on easy going guy so we knew that he would be great with Summer. Linda and Curt were very excited to meet Chance and drove from San Diego to Brea to meet up with Bobby and Nestor (Chance's fosters) on a Friday night. It did not take much time and Chance was in their car, riding back to San Diego and his new home.
The adoption going home photo shows Curt and Linda and their son with his fiancee.
New mom Linda reported the following:
He is so sweet and loving with Summer Girl and gets along well with my son’s fiancé’s dog who, although small, wants to be the dominant one (Chance could care less). It took him about a week to start feeling comfortable in the house. As I had mentioned to you, he initially just wanted to run to the garage or stay in my son’s room (which is right next to the garage). He now knows that he has the run of the house and so when my son leaves for school he comes upstairs to be with me and follows me around the house. He is really a sweet dog and we are happy to have him. Not the best on walks as you mentioned - suddenly refusing to go any further - but I am working with him on that. Attached are some photos of him with his new friends (sorry I am not a very good photographer). He is so sweet and loving with Summer Girl and gets along well with my son’s fiancé’s dog who, although small, wants to be the dominant one (Chance could care less).
Thanks for your help in matching him with our home – he is a good fit.
