9/4/17: Chance's story..... He wandered into a neighborhood in
western Iowa a few weeks ago and Tracy and Kay took care of Chance - who
they had named Duke. They fed him, ensured he had water made sure he
was secured each day/night and had someone to love him while they
searched for his owner. When no one came forward, they reached out to
Great Plains Pointer Rescue (GPPR) for help. GPPR didn't have an open
foster home for him and asked WGSPR for help. That is when the Chapin
family decided to open up their home to Chance.
Elisa, junior WGSPR volunteer decided to name him Chance because of his
story and the movie Homeward Bound. The name is so fitting for this
Here is what we do know about Chance. He is crate trained. Working
on house training. Knows sit. Gets along with other dogs and kids.
Very sweet demeanor. Does not like gunshots, train whistles/trains
or loud noises - very scared. :-( Rides very well in the car.
Chance does have alot of medical needs right now. He has a UTI that
has not cleared with the antibiotics he is on so we are getting him back
into the vet for a re-check to ensure there isn't anything else going
on. Thin - he is thin and could afford about 8-10 pounds. Dental -
he will need a dental cleaning as his teeth are in bad shape. He also
has some warts or tiny tumors on 2 of his nipples so we will get that
looked at. Vaccinations - we will get him up to date on his
vaccinations. He will need to be neutered. Lastly - his one hind leg
- he does not put weight on it and it shakes and has muscle atrophy and
his paw is slightly curled, so that will be looked at by vet this week
This boy looks like he has had a not so good life over the years, and
WGSPR is committed to getting him healthy and well so he can live out
his senior years in comfort. More to come on Chance as we get to know
this sweet sweet boy.
9/2/17 Chance had a long journey into Rescue across 3 states. More to come on Chance as we get to know him.
