BIO:   Chance is a nine-year-old girl who landed with AADR when a good Samaritan stepped in to help her out of a bad situation.  Chance is a perfect dog for an active person.  She loves going on walks, hikes, helping out in the garden, exploring in a fenced in yard, and sunbathing.  She does all of these things even though she is blind (SARDS)!  While Chance enjoys all of her activities, there’s nothing she loves more than being with her people.  She’s a total cuddle and a great pal to curl up on the couch with to watch a movie on a rainy day.

Chance is currently in a home with two other dogs and a person who works from home (prior to the virus pandemic, as well).  This environment is ideal for Chance, as she does need the security that comes with the company of the other dogs and a person. When her foster mom does need to leave Chance at home unsupervised for short periods of time, she hangs out in a crate.  However, Chance does not like the crate and will cry until foster mom comes home and lets her out.  At night, Chance is happy to sleep wherever she has a cozy blanket to burrow into.  Lately, she has been sleeping on the living room couch at night.  And Chance sleeps well because she is so busy during the day!  Chance is the goofiest and sweetest pup and if she sounds like a good fit for you, please reach out to the email address listed above with specific questions.

Chance’s requirements:

  • A fenced yard so she can safely explore
  • Another dog to keep her company when you aren’t there
  • Preferably someone that’s home a lot because she loves her humans
  • No apartments

If you can look past her blindness and see the wonderful girl she is, then you need to put in an application right away because you won’t find a more perfect dog than Chance!

=============== Information for All Dogs/Adopters ==============

If you have questions about this dog, please feel free to contact the foster home at the email address listed above.  They have the most up-to-date information concerning the dog and would be happy to answer any questions about the animal. 

We welcome out of state and Canadian adoptions, but we will not ship any dog via cargo. You will have to make arrangements to pick up the dog or for them to go by ground transport. If you choose transporting by either volunteers through our organization or by paid transporter, there will be an additional $45 fee added for the required Health Certificate. 

We will not adopt into the state of CT, RI, NH, ME or MA due to strict laws regarding importation of dogs into those states. If you have an issue with this, you need to take this up with your legislatures.

To understand the adoption process through AADR, please review the Adoption Information on our home page.  Transportation options are outlined on that page in Step 3.

If you are interested in adopting this Dachshund please review Read Before You Adopt and then you can complete an Application.


Please don't let the distance stand in your way of finding your newest best friend. We have volunteers that will help your "new friend" get up and down the East Coast. We just can't get them from one Coast to the other but some day we hope to have enough volunteers to do that as well.  For now, please look for dogs on your coast.
