Bonnie says of Chase: “He was picked up as a stray in Montgomery, Alabama. A friend pulled him from the shelter, after his hold was up, to foster. She contacted me about him, and we arranged to meet half way so I could meet him. Well, it didn’t take but a minute and he was on the way home with me.
He has been a great dog. Outside he loves to run and chase squirrels. Inside he is a perfect gentleman. He has earned is Beginner Novice and Novice titles in obedience. He loves Barn Hunt and has earned his RATCH title. He is crazy about dock diving and has his Senior Advanced title and was invited this year to the NADD Nationals. Currently he has his BCAT and is working on his DCAT.
We are starting our third year together and I’m so looking forward to it. He has truly added to my life.”
