Our lovely Chancey is not as fast as she used to be, but she still has plenty of spunk!
Chancey's owner recently passed away and she finds herself in need of a retirement home. This sweetie gets along great with other dogs and is quite friendly with people. Although she was trained for hunting, Chancey has always been an inside dog. She is house trained and prefers a comfy bed in the air conditioning. Smart girl!
Chancey has been loved and very well cared for during her lifetime. She has had regular dentals, she's spayed, current on vaccinations and heartworm negative. We just started her on a joint supplement and NSAID, as she has a bit of arthritis. A leisurely daily walk would help her keep her nice figure! Chancey is a little hard of hearing, but her vision is good and she's really in great shape for a senior.
Chancey shared with us these Words of Wisdom: Remember, today is the oldest you've ever been and the youngest you will ever be. Make the most of it! Woof!
Please submit an Online Adoption Application if you are interested in Ditto. It is always the first step in our adoption process.

Smaller dogs that meet the weight and size restrictions for in-cabin flight will be allowed to travel in the main cabin area under the front seat of their adopter in an approved carrier following FAA and airline regulations. Cost of canine airline travel will be the responsibility of the adopting family.
A special note regarding Chancey and all of ESRA’s seniors:
Why adopt an older dog?
Most people go to a shelter or rescue organization wanting to adopt a puppy or a young dog. By adopting an older dog, you can make a statement about human compassion and the value of life at all ages. Older dogs are often the last to be adopted or the first to be euthanized at the shelter. Why should an older dog be left behind?
Dogs live in the present, as today is what's important to them. They don't tend to worry about what's around the next bend in the road. They just want to be happy and loved today! We all know there are no guarantees in life. The quality of time you have with your new companion can matter a great deal more than its quantity. Even if you have a senior dog for only a few years, the days you spend together will be precious!
You can give an older dog the best years of his/her life! Won't you please consider providing a loving home to a senior?
