Chance was living around the home of Linda Conard in Las Gravileas on the outskirts of Antigua. He had a terrible skin condition and looked more like a hyena than a dog. Linda saw him daily, and his state bothered her terribly. She contacted us and asked for guidance.Terry went to her home several times to try to catch the dog. She left a crate, and Linda began to feed the dog in it. After a few days she was able to close the door on the crate and bring the dog to us. Chance had a terrible case of mange, was thin, very frightened of being hit. With gentle treatment he is blossoming.

Chance likely belonged to a construction worker labouring in the housing development. When the project was done, he was left behind to fend for himself.

He is a very sweet, loving, and sensitive dog. He has obviously been hit and mistreated, nonetheless, he is eager to be petted, played with, and loved. He is a little desperate for attention upon arriving home, and he can jump up and paw in excitement.  We has improved with training, and is pretty good about not jumping up, but sometimes he gets so happy and excited that he forgets he shouldn’t jump.  Chance runs free at the coffee farm with the rest of the gang, and doing well. He is a strong runner  and can go for miles and play hard.

We are a small organization dedicated to helping dogs and cats in Antigua. We sterilize, rehabilite and find homes, and work with other rescue groups.
