Featured Pets Available for Adoption at SCAC-AC!

Chase  is a pit bull mix that arrived at the shelter as a stray on December 20, 2018. We estimate that he is about two years old. Chase is like a hidden gem… He is an awesome dog, but continues to be overlooked by prospective adopters. His true personality shines when he is out of the kennel, able to relax, and you are able to spend some time getting to know him. Friends of SCAC has taken Chase to offsite adoption events where dogs are able to be out in the public with a handler for three hours at a time, and he even walked with our group in the St. Patrick’s Day parade this year and did an outstanding job! At the offsite events and at the parade, Chase has shown that he is a mild-mannered, laid back dog; he has done well when interacting with all kinds of people. Chase just needs the opportunity to show adopters how amazing he is! See him getting pets and love in this  video !  Chase is a very strong boy for his size, but performs well on a leash and will listen to his handler once he has had a chance to walk off the pent-up energy that comes with living inside a kennel. With a bit more leash training and a confident handler who is able to lead, Chase would learn very quickly. He does not jump up on people when they greet him, he knows the sit command, and is gentle when accepting treats. Chase enjoys chewing on toys, and getting pets, scratches on his behind, and love and attention from people.
