We found Chadd thanks to Kathy J in the very same shelter that we had pulled AJ from just a few weeks ago. The similarities between the 2 dogs is unmistakable and we're wondering if they could, perhaps, be related. They both share the golden shadings in their coat and have the same gentle temperament ... and, unfortunately, the same fly-bite damage to their ears which, now that he will be an indoor dog, will heal with time.

According to shelter notes: "No issues. No age entered. I placed a note for your rescue should you desire to pull. Pull will not be available until 10am 7/23/19." According to shelter volunteer notes: "Chadd has had a rough life, his ears weathered from living outside; this amazing dog will love a good home! Chadd is maybe 2 years old, shepherd whose disposition is unbelievable. According to Cindi, who went to meet Chadd, he is "very mellow."

UPDATE 7/23: At 10am (the earliest possible time the shelter would release Chadd), Tera was there to pull our newest boy.

Chadd is definitely ready to leave

Chadd is out and safe at CR. He's beautiful and Tera says "sweet temperament!"

To all of Chadd's faithful & generous supporters, we are eternally grateful...

UPDATE 8/24: Thanks to prior adopters Dusty and Tisha (who adopted Luna [now Beauty] from us in December 2017), Chadd and Lina are loaded up and on their way to Phoenix.


The transport is making great time, and the furkids should be in Arizona mid afternoon. We can't wait to meet them.

The kids have arrived in Phoenix

Chadd immediately heads off with fosters Tisha and Dusty

We're hoping for positive foster updates and possibly news of an adoption in the next few weeks.

Adoption fee $395.00.
