Arrived 7/22/2018: Reserved, gentle, shy, lays head on leg, doesn't jump.
Chancey is such a handsome fellow. He wants to be with you at all times, preferably touching. He loves going for walks and meeting new people. Any dog, cat, bird or mysterious creature we come across on walks needs to be greeted. We had one instance where he nipped at my cat, but a firm no put him in his place. He’ll carry around toys but doesn’t play with them. I imagine that will come in time.
His favorite time of day is meal time. He loves food and will try to steal food out of the other dog’s bowls. He has trained us to give him his food first. While he won’t jump up on you, he will jump up to counter surf if you have any food out. We are working on taking treats from a hand instead of making you drop it on the floor or bowl. He’s so gentle taking his treat, you won’t have to worry about him nipping your fingers giving him one.
He does have a sneaky side. He really wants to be a couch potato and will wait until you aren’t looking to creep up. He becomes dead weight when you make him get down. So if you don’t want him on the couch, you’ll have to be vigilant.
He is such a sweetheart and will make someone a fantastic family member
