If you love outdoor adventures Wallace is the dog for you. This 2 year old Boxer/Hound sweetheart loves to be outside in any weather - hiking on the trails, running in the snow, splashing in the water - it's all good with him. He is successful on and off the leash and his recall is quite good and getting better. At 77 pounds Wallace is a big boy, but is as gentle and affectionate as could be. He enjoys playing with other dogs, and will do so every chance he gets. He is very intelligent with a strong desire to please his people, and most things don't take any time at all to learn for this smart doggie. He settles down easily and sleeps through the night on his bed, but would prefer to share yours if given the chance. After a pretty rough start Wallace has come into his own in a loving and supportive foster home, and is ready to continue his journey with an experienced owner to guide him. He can still be wary of strangers and loud noises, and boundaries are good for him and you. A large yard with room for him to explore and stretch his long legs would be ideal, and while he does play well with other dogs, it would be best if he were the only dog in the home. His size may be overwhelming for young children and he would probably do better in a family with kids over 15 who can understand and respect his energetic enthusiasm. Wallace's potential is endless, and this sensitive and kind hearted boy deserves a forever family who can appreciate how truly special he is. Thank you so much for your interest in adopting a dog from A New Chance Animal Rescue (https://anewchancear.org). We are a 501c3, tax deductible organization. ANCAR is a foster-based rescue, and we adopt within a 90 mile radius of Bedford Hills, NY. You will find the adoption application here: (https://anewchancear.org/adopt/adoption-application/). All fields on the application must be completed. Please read about the adoption process (https://www.anewchancear.org/adopt/our-adoption-process/) so you'll know what to expect when you submit. Our dogs are in foster care and we do NOT have a shelter or boarding facility. AN APPLICATION MUST BE COMPLETED IN FULL AND APPROVED BEFORE A DOG CAN BE MET. This is a firm policy. Our busy volunteers are not able to respond to questions about the dog or dog meeting requests in the absence of an application. We know these dogs very well because they are in foster care. Please read the profiles of the dog(s) you are interested in prior to submitting an application. If there are specific requirements stated (ie: Fenced Yard or Canine Friend Required) these are included because they are vital to the happiness, health, safety and adoption success of that dog. We are only able to save as many dogs as we have foster homes (https://www.anewchancear.org/foster/faqs/) and resources for. We provide medical care including vaccinations, testing, deworming, spaying/neutering and microchipping before transporting our dogs. We provide all supplies, preventatives and any follow up vet care necessary while they are in foster care. These costs are high and the number of lives we can save is entirely dependent upon donations from people like you. We do not receive funding from private foundations or government sources. If you can find room in your heart to help us, with any amount, we are truly grateful (https://www.anewchancear.org/help/donate/). We are a 501c3 organization, so all donations are tax-deductible. It is only through the kindness of supporters like you that we are 'changing lives...one tail at a time' by providing our dogs with 'A New Chance.' (https://anewchancear.org) Thanks so much.
