Are you ready to meet Chance?

For more information, call or stop by!
We are open Tuesday-Sunday 12pm to 5pm

Meet 8yr old chance, 50lbs of pure sweetness. From her black fluffy coat to her pointy ears she is a crowd stopper. Chance was surrendered to us along with her sister Gabby at the start of October due to their owner passing away. Chance has great manners when walking past other dogs on the coastal trail volunteers have commented. With the proper introductions Chance would probably do fine living with another dog. We do know she has a high prey drive so small dogs and cats wouldn’t be the best match. Look no further though if you want a fluffy loving companion that would love a nice hike or walk on the headlands but would also be totally happy sitting at your feet while you dine out on the town. Chance would make a great family dog. Being that Chance is on the older side but of course still young at heart she does present with some mild to moderate dental disease along with a small mass on her right side that may need further vet care after adoption. Anyone would be lucky to have this sweet girl. We are still learning about chance but from what we have learned she is an absolute gem and did we mention how great she is with kids. Come down to meet this loving girl, she just might be what you or your family have been looking for.

Dogs have been domesticated for thousands of years and are now considered to be man’s best friend. However, the origins of domesticated dogs are not entirely clear and there are several theories about how they came to be domesticated.

One theory is that dogs were originally domesticated by early humans for their hunting abilities. Wolves, which are the ancestors of modern dogs, were likely attracted to the camps of early humans because of the abundance of food. As the wolves became more accustomed to human presence, they may have been domesticated and trained to assist in hunting.

Another theory is that dogs were domesticated for their ability to protect early human settlements. Wolves are naturally territorial animals and may have been tamed by early humans to serve as guard dogs for their camps and homes.

There is also evidence to suggest that dogs were domesticated for their companionship. Early humans may have formed close bonds with wolves, eventually leading to the domestication of the animals.

Regardless of the exact reason for their domestication, it is clear that dogs have played a crucial role in human society for thousands of years. They have been used for a variety of purposes, including hunting, protection, and companionship. Today, dogs are kept as pets in nearly every corner of the world and are beloved by people of all ages.

In conclusion, the origins of domesticated dogs are not entirely clear, but it is likely that they were domesticated for their hunting abilities, protective nature, and companionship. Today, dogs continue to play a vital role in human society and are an important part of many people’s lives.
