Chase came to me in a fairly interesting way.
I was just scanning through Shetland Sheepdog puppies on petfinder and saw his picture. I was definitely struck with his adorable little face and immediately e-mailed the rescue requesting information on how to adopt him. I would definitely not take no for an answer and briefly summarized my knowledge of the breed.
Despite being 14 weeks old at the time, Chase (previously named Fitz) had a hard time. His previous owner's spouse passed away in Iraq. Their current dog also had a hard time accepting Chase as a little brother and attempted to bite him. Thankfully, the owner realized that everything at once was too much and decided to turn him into the rescue.
