ChaunceyPosted: Fri, 2018-12-07 00:00
We adopted Chauncey in July of this year. At the time, Bella (our other dog, a GSD/Mastiff mix) was just over a year old, and we felt like she needed a partner in crime. Chauncey has blended in with our family and friends seamlessly. He and Bella are the best of friends - they love going out and running around the yard together, and playing tug in the house.
Chauncey loves the kids, and has taken to sleeping in their rooms. Our younger son actually sleeps better with him in the room - he told us when has a bad dream, "I wake up and pat Chauncey, and it makes me feel better so I can go back to sleep."
We like having family and friends over, and he has charmed all of them. He loves a good tummy rub, and as it is getting colder he seems to enjoy lying next to the fire. He is an incredibly sweet soul, and his favorite thing aside from playing with his sister is snuggling with his people. Bella can be a bit bossy, and Chauncey is very tolerant of her whims - he knows when he can sneak in snuggles and treats of his own. He is really smart, and very easy to train. We cannot fathom that anyone would ever give him up, but we feel very lucky that he came into our lives. He has been a wonderful addition to our family, and we feel so lucky to be able to give him a forever home.
Thank you to MAGSR - you all were spot on in your recommendation, and it has been great to work with you all through the adoption!
