More about Chase:
Hi, my name is Chase! I am on the lookout for my forever family so here is more about me so you can decide if that’s you! I am 10 weeks old and am going to be a bigger guy when I grow up; maybe like 50-60 pounds? I love to play with other dogs, actually to be honest, I am a little to “in their face” about it but I am working on it! But either way, I would love to have a canine brother or sister in the house to show me the ropes and play with. I’m still learning how to walk on a leash and will need some puppy training classes to learn manners because I still like to jump, jump, jump when I see you!
