Chaco is a sweet giant with lots of love to give. He’s been waiting for a forever home for nearly three years. He was found as a stray in Kentucky and was then placed in a pound. He was on death row when TAGS heard about him and rescued him. He knows that Canada will be the place where he will finally find a family who loves him unconditionally.
Chaco is the kind of dog who is quiet in the house when nothing is happening but will get super-excited if he detects that there is something going on. He likes to play with stuffed animals, squeaky toys and balls.
Chaco knows how to “sit” and “stay.”
An enthusiastic boy, Chaco tends to pull when on a walk, but his foster mom is working on his training him with a Gentle Leader.
Chaco is picky when it comes to choosing his buddies. He doesn’t like busy, crowded dog parks, and he can be dominant with dogs that he doesn’t yet know. But he does get along well with his foster siblings, Josie and Diesel.
His foster mom recommends for him a home with no other dogs, cats or small kids (ages 14+ would be preferable). As a high-energy dog, Chaco would be happiest as part of an active family. Please give Chaco a chance! He’s got many wonderful qualities, but he often gets overlooked because of his fur colour (read more about black dog syndrome here) or his size.
