|B.A.A.C.'s Baby Boy
....and the winning name of the Name our Baby Boy Contest is......
Thank you to everyone who voted for Chance. He finally has a name and we can officially welcome
his as the B.A.A.C. Mascot!!!
UPDATE: Chance is now healthy enough to go to a loving home! If you would like to meet him and/or
are interested in adopting him, please contact us.
Check out the story on "Chance" and how he came to us.
This poor boy suffered from severe neglect after he was left to die in an abandoned apartment.
We will be pursuing action against the person who abandoned him with no food or water. We are lucky to
have B.A.A.C.'s very own Mercer Put Bull Rescue to help him recover, as well as B.A.A.C. as a whole to seek
justice for him. We will be ensuring he recovers fully with love from many new aunts and uncles he has
acquired from the members of our organization.
We have one problem - and we need your help! Our emaciated skeleton of a baby boy doesn't even have a
name yet. So please help us name our "Baby Boy" as we welcome him as B.A.A.C's official mascot.
Here is our little boy, a week later after receiving much needed TLC from his foster momma. As you can see,
he was very difficult to catch on film as he was very excited to see his visitors. This little guy is just amazing
how he loves people and seeks petting, hugs & most of all, kisses. As his foster mom Sue said, he has no
idea humans did this to him. His spirit is larger than life and not even close to being broken. He loves men
and women alike and has no fears or aggression towards other animals that we know of yet. As you can see
his scars are starting to scab up pretty nicely and there's a hint of meat on his bones now, rounding out the
edges of the bones sticking out. Remember, this has only been ONE week and the improvements are very
Our boy has been gaining weight! He only needs to gain 5 more pounds and he will be at his 50lb goal!
Our boy Chance continues to grow....
.....and grow.....and our Baby Boy Chance has finally been adopted!!! 3/4/09
I am happy to report that Chance is adjusting really well. He settled in the crate well on the ride home. At
first he missed you and whined a bit but then settled right down and was very quiet.
When we arrived home we took him into our backyard where he relieved himself and then we played with him
for awhile. He chased us and a ball around. He and Harry are getting along fine. Neither of them are pushy
so they are just hanging out together. Chance and our bravest cat are respectful of each other and have
sniffed nose to nose a few times. Chance listens so well that when we tell him enough or to settle down he
just does. We can tell that you have taught Chance how to be a really good boy. He knows that sitting is a
really good thing.
Yesterday Chance went out on two good walks - and he went out at sunrise this morning for another long
walk. Harry and him already enjoy walking along together. Chance has done fantastic walking on the leash!
I can't wait to get him out on the trails this spring - he will be perfect!
Last night I put a crate for Chance only 5 feet from our bed and he whined only briefly (I know he was missing
you) and then settled down for the night- couldn't have asked him to be any better. Then he spent the early
morning helping me in the kitchen and when I had him run back to the bedroom to get Kurt up for a walk,
Chance jumped right up in the bed with Kurt and began licking his face. I know Kurt adores him as much as I
do. Kurt and I are both very impressed at how well he listens, how attentive he is and just what a big lovebug
he is. We couldn't have asked for a better dog.
We will try and get some outdoor pictures of him soon as well. On Monday we close on our new house and
then start moving in. Lots of new things for Chance to get used to!
Thanks Sue for all the great care you gave Chance - he is just wonderful and we are so happy with him!
