ABR gives each dog a unique name so we can identify them with their microchip should the need arise. Sometimes a dog gets a special name through the Name-A-Boxer program, but for the most part the names are randomly assigned. This 3 to 4 year old guy with a white coat hit the jackpot. His name is Chance, and boy did he need one. He was not well because he had an STD so his only way out of the shelter alive was with a rescue. So, ABR gave him a chance, and the perfect name.

Chance receives his final treatment on 4/24. He is heartworm positive, but ABR always explains the options and assists with treatment; it doesn’t have to be difficult now. He lives in a foster home with 2 Boxers, 2 school aged kids, and 2 adults. Lucky boy gets to play and help wake the kids for school. He has not had any accidents in the house and he is crate and leash trained too.

Chance is a very sweet, loving boy with good manners. His current idea of fetch stops short of returning the ball, but he loves to cuddle and be near. Now, he needs just one more chance to win your heart and warm your home. And now, 4/24, Chance is free and clear of the STD!
