7-year-old corgi mix, in foster

December 3, 2022: Welcome Chase!

Weekends are for rescue, and we’ve got a new one to introduce. Say hello to Chase!

Chase joins the SECR family as a shelter pull, where he was recently surrendered by an elderly owner no longer in a position to care for a special needs dog. Chase is blind, has a cataract on his right eye that may require surgery soon, and needs a family that can help him navigate through life and the healthcare he needs. We’re so happy that we can provide him with one.

Chase has been through a lot lately. He has some issues with anxiety, recently recovered from a bad upper-respiratory infection, and is battling some gastrointestinal upset that has likely been aggravated by all the stress from his recent life changes. Chase will be seeing our vet this coming week for a check-up and bloodwork, as well as some tests to measure his eye pressure. There is also a dental to come in his near future, along with a visit to a veterinary eye specialist to determine the best course of treatment for his cataract and vision loss. In the meantime, though, we’re just happy to have Chase with us and are helping him slowly get settled in to his new foster home.

Despite everything Chase is dealing with, he’s an extremely sweet boy who loves attention and finds comfort in having people talk him through getting the lay of his new land. He has good mobility and navigates very well. However, given his blindness, having a human voice for guidance gives him the reassurance he needs.

Welcome to the family, Chase! We are so glad to have you with us and look forward to giving you all the TLC you need.
