Chance, Labrador Retriever For Adoption In Mississauga, Ontario
Chance / Male / 5 Years / 60 lbs / Lab x Boxer Mix / ScarboroughMeet Chance! Chance loves all people - and he lives for snuggles and scratches. He won’t hesitate to roll on his back to expose his belly, his way of indicating that it's time for a belly rub. He is not overly clingy, but he will always chose to be close to his humans. His favorite activities include going for short walks, squirrel watching and playing with his kong toy. His foster says he is laid back, loving, affectionate, gentle and patient. He has made the perfect work from home companion, happy to just cuddle up close and not demand attention. Chance is now more than ready for a family of his own!Chance greets all people with curiosity and excitement. Strangers are just friends he hasn’t met yet! He does have a tendency to get overexcited though, so homes with children ages 10+ are preferred.Chance is currently getting three walks a day, ranging from 20-40 minutes. With his current schedule, he is fully potty trained. He hasn’t expressed any fears to city things, but may startle at a sudden loud noise. He walks well on leash but will occasionally pull towards something he wants to smell. Chance is very strong so he can not be walked by children. He has expressed reactivity to squirrels, rabbits and other dogs. Adopters will need to be comfortable with consistent redirection and confident on working through reactivity with a power breed.Unfortunately Chance was not properly socialized with other dogs when he was young. As a result of this, he can not have any exposure to puppies or other male dogs. He will not be suitable for dog parks, leash greetings, or being housed with other canine pals. If needed, adopters should be willing to hire professional guidance on proper socialization.When left alone, Chance is crated and settles quickly. He has great house manners and has been tested for up to 4 hours. With some adjustment, he should do fine being left for the duration of a work day. He sleeps through the night in his crate without issue!Chance is an adaptable guy and would thrive in most living environments. With his current reactivity towards some dogs, he would do best in house where there is not risk of confined interaction. Ideal adopters will have some dog experience with power breeds, and be prepared from the training journey ahead. Chance is looking for pet-free homes at this time.If you’re interested in adopting Chance please apply at https://www.fetchandreleash.ca/adoption-info#adoption-formChance’s adoption fee is $800.
