Image 9

SMART of Flagler County was notified about a dog who had been dumped and was extremely skittish. SMART went about setting a trap and a camera up in the area he had been seen.  After 2 days they finally caught a glimpse of him on camera; and noticed he was a master at escaping the traps they set for him.

Multiple Volunteers worked together to put out fresh food for him, and over the course of two months, they were able to catch him. Named Chase for the 2 month long chase, they found a good foster home for him, and donations were raised to cover his heartworm, neuter, and months of training that he needed to overcome his fear of people.

After 6 weeks in his foster home, SMART received a message from a family who wanted to meet Chase. The family met with Chase, who did great during his first meet with them, and charmed Pat and Joe Miller. Pat and Joe came to training with Chase, and did several meets with him before they decided to officially adopt him.

Chase is now in his ‘furever’ home, and is doing wonderful with the love and structure they provide him.
