Fearless and resilient, our Chase was a survivor in a high speed car chase.
This sweet boy was the innocent victim of a high-speed chase in Kansas City this January. He was hit by the speeding car and sustained several serious, but non-life threatening injures. It was first thought it would lose his hind leg but our wonderful vet performed a successful surgery and Chase is now on the road to recovery in a loving foster home, with all 4 limbs :-)

Chase is recovering from multiple injuries including receiving a FHO (Femoral Head Osteotomy) surgery to repair his back leg on January 22. Chase The gorgeous boy will need a patient adopter who will take him on slow walks to get used to walking again. It will take up to 6 months for him to fully heal but the prognosis is very good.
Chase is currently living in a foster home and foster parents believe he might have been a house pet before his rescue. He is comfortable in home environment and appeaser well adapted. There's is another dog in his home but Chase is not being introduced yet. We are waiting until he feels a little better. Chase is not a fan of being crated but his foster parents are working on it. He's good in a house and has great house manners.
Chase is a lovable goofball! He loves attention and snuggling. He seems to have a great balance between being energetic and a couch potato. Typical Pit Bull. He's definitly a cuddle-bug and is constantly propositioning cuddling sessions with both of his foster parents.
Behavior with people:
Chase loves people! Especially when they'll snuggle on the couch with him. He is comfortable with everyone and doesn't seem to have a preference when it comes to men or women. As long as someone is willing to cuddle, they're his best friend.
Behavior with children:
Chase could do well with older children that won't be overwhelmed by the love he has to give. He's a very easy going dog, but he can be a little pushy with his requests for attention. Nothing bad though and we think he has the potential to make a wonderful family companion. In fact, Chase is kid-approved by 11 yr old twin girls and a 4 yr old girl. All have a Pitbull/boxer mix so they have good doggie manners. Foster mom would love to see him be a family man!
Behavior with other dogs:
Chase will wait until his leg is further healed before interacting with the resident female dog.
Behavior with other animals:
Chase is non-reactive to antagonistic cats! Foster mom thinks he’s been swatted at by a cat with claws before. He never gets very close to the cat in his foster home and is cautious around her. She literally walks up to him and starts to hiss and he just rolls the other way or ignores her. He gets lots of treats for it. She gets told to scoot :-)
Chase seems to be housebroken and possibly crate trained. His crate training skills shine when he does not have his comfy cone on. Chase knows sit and is very eager to please when treats are involved. Chase does great using the Weiss walkie method when going on walks.
Throughout all of his hardships, Chase has so much love to give! He absolutely loves everyone! His positive energy radiates brightly and will surely put a smile on your face!
