|Chance was probably off the streets.He went to the Placer SPCA originally,but they are very over-crowded and he was going to be put down.The Sacramento SPCA had room for him,so they took him in. (that was my first second chance)
Mom found a staffy/chow mix she liked on the shelter's website,so she went there.The dog was *just* adopted.But she filled out the form and told them if they had a corgi/corgi mix,to call her.We took a look around anyway.
In this larger enclosure with acrylic glass instead of cage bars,the play room where every dog got let out to,Chance was in there all curled up on a blanket.There were two dogs in there with him..a Australian Shepherd and a Basenji/Lab.They were both barking and fighting.Chance was so calm,we actually thought was sick.I really didn't want to leave him,because somebody else might have decided to put him on hold.We went around looking at others,but to tell you the truth,I was rushing to get back and meet Chance.
We met him in a room with lots of toys and benches.He didn't want to play much at all,and rolled over on his side right next to my dad and he petted him.That sealed the deal.
I wanted to name him Shadow,but my friend said I should name him Chance.I wasn't too keen on it,but it was much better than "Lil' Joe" (his shelter name. )
