Hi! My name is Chandler. I'm one big goofy and super friendly boy. Like
everyone else, I have a story, but no one except me knows all of it. I had a
tragic accident a few months ago and my back was very badly burned. No one
knows how it happened, or with what I was burned, only that I was left in a
shelter. I am lucky that a kind lady from Greater Houston German Shepherd
Dog Rescue came and took me to VERGI. If it wasn't for everyone's hard work
and care, I wouldn't have made it to my lovely foster family. I am now
almost fully healed. You can barely see where I was hurt and my hair is
even starting to grow over my scars! I am still a teenager and have lots
of energy so I often run around the yard with my foster brothers and
sisters. I have five of them! Can you believe it? It's hard to say what my
favorite game is, but I'll go with tug for now (but I do love fetch, too). I
am so good at it that I even go bring the toys and put them on my sibling's
head to play. I have met other dogs like at the pet store; they barked at
me but I couldn't care less.
I know quite a few things too: sit, lay down, stay, wait, leave it, heel,
shake... I don't truly realize my size so I sometimes step on my foster
family's feet, but other than that I'm a true gentle giant. I absolutely
love to cuddle and give kisses! Sadly, because I'm a big boy with big paws,
I might scare little kids, but never on purpose.
I know all about being scared. I have my fears, too. For example, I
don't like when people touch me when I am eating my dinner. If you want to
take my food, tell me and I'll leave it, but please don't try to pet me. I
get really scared and I may scare you without meaning to. I
also cry like a baby when I hurt myself even a little bit. I once scared my
foster mom when I hurt one of my toes on a rock while running and I was
whimpering like someone had just bit me. I also get worried every time when
we go somewhere with the car and they ask me to get out of the car. You see,
I was surrendered at the shelter, and I have fears that you may leave me, too.
All I really want is to find my family who will love me forever.
Speaking of my forever family, I can't wait to meet you. I wouldn't mind if
you have other furry babies like me, I love everyone! I have so much
love to give. I promise to play with you all the time, and my goofy nature
and cute face is bound to make you laugh even on the darkest of days.
