Chance is a nice looking dog! He looks happy and healthy. It's always nice to see dogs being taken care of and not abused. :)

OH! Chancey boy! You are a shining star indeed! I looove your little face that just screams LOVE ME! Your coloring is just breathtaking. You look as if you have some really good pup-pals to hang out with and its apparent that you love them alot!

People dont realize that this breed is one of the most loving and loyal breeds there are. They are big babies who want nothing more than to be loved. They do get alot of bad press, I think that its just like anything else in the media, they pick up the stories about Pit Bull incidents and almost no other breed. Its unfair.
Chance, you are one of the lucky ones. Thank you Chance's family!

pit bulls are sweet dogs too if they are raised right-obviously Chance has wonderful parents-what a nice doggie!

Gorgeous boy. His face markings (i call it eye makeup) makes him look very sericous and thougthful -- an intellectual. He looks like he has something very important to say! What a beauty. Lucky you, lucky him.

Chance! Oh, you sweet boy! I just love you! Your nose looks delicious. I want to kiss it for hours.

I am SO GLAD that you have given Chance, well, a chance! :) He is clearly a big sweetymandog, and I just love him. Pitbulls are definitely not deserving of their "black box warning". The gentlest, kindest, best dog I know around babies is a pitbull named "Marley". She is so good around babies (animal and human) that her nickname is "Old Mother Mar-Mar". :) Give Chance a huge hug for me!

Chance is adorable! What a fitting name, too -- you really gave this guy a chance, and I'm so happy you did! You can see what a sweetie he is from these pictures - and he looks like a great best friend to your black&white pup! I hate the stygma that's been attached to this breed - even a golden retriever could be vicious if it's raised to be that way. Thank you for giving him a good home and have fun with him!

also, Julia - sweetymandog?! hahaha

Hello to everyone :-) I'm Chance's sister! I just wanted to say that I'm grateful for all of your comments. It was fun to be able to share our Chancey with all of you. My mom always said she never would have chosen a pit bull for a pet, but she's so happy we ended up with Chance.

DogMom: We call it eye makeup too! I actually had that typed in to the "blurb" before I realized that maybe not everyone would understand... glad to know we're not the only ones!

Julia: I will be sure to pass sweetymandog on to Chance -- he loves nicknames! Give Marley a hug from us, too!

anon: The black and white is Lexi. She was a shelter rescue, and I think Chance sensed that he and Lexi had a lot of things in common right from the start. They have been the best brother and sister!

Thanks everyone!

What a handsome boy! The photos of Chance and his siblings (esp. the black and white one) show just how much love they have for each other. Really, really heartwarming. Thanks. And yes, to repeat what's already been said, thanks for giving Chance a chance!

What a sweetface! My favorite picture is the one with Chance and his friend sleeping with their heads on the back of the couch. How cute ;)

He looks about as vicious as a hamster... just like all the other pit bulls I know. He's clearly (and very deservingly) spoiled and wonderful - and thanks for the message about pit bulls. Just like all other animals, pit bulls are only violent when it's necessary for them to eat or to defend themselves - and bad owners seem to think it's fun to convince large, muscular dogs that they need to defend themselves against other people by mistreating them... very sad, and completely unnecessary.

Chance is a beautiful boy, and I hope his parents will introduce us to his brothers/sisters soon - the whole family looks wonderful!!!!

that is the best looking pitbull i have ever seen. he is so adorable!

Chance is soo beautiful and he looks so friendly and kind. I do have a question though do you get him to lay his head down with his friend like that or is that just a weird cute thing that dogs just do?

years ago i had a beautiful pit bull named chance, and he was a rescue dog too. he was the biggest baby around, and his favorite thing was to nap in my lap. it is so good of you to take in a "black box" dog and see for yourself the best points of the breed rather than rely on the bias of others. any dog can be programmed to be vicious, and i am afraid that ignorance and the need to have a status symbol has doomed many otherwise gentle dogs. chance is just beautiful. that eye makeup is perfect, and his coat certainly is lionlike. i suspect that he will be the best friend your family will ever have.

dear fezandsam

I'm afraid I'm not entirely sure why Chance and Lexi are so close. Lexi is not an overly affectionate dog when it comes to other dogs -- she was also a rescue and is easily frightened. Chance just attached himself to her the minute we brought him home -- whether or not Lexi felt she needed a friend, she had one :-) They have been side by side like that ever since. It's actually quite rare to get a picture of him WITHOUT her!

Wow, what a handsome boy! I have always been afraid of pit bulls due to what I have heard, so I have been educated by this site I must say. Chance really looks loving and adorable, so I am glad to have heard the other side of a much-publicised story. Thanks for posting your boy here.

WHAT, exactly, is he eating in the 2nd pic?!?!?! ...don't really want to know...
otherwise, he looks like a very lovable baby :)

What a great name for a great pup! Adorable!
May 8, 2007 janetpetrone
OMG he is beautiful. He could be my Spanky's brother, she has the exact same coloring and markings. I have 2 staffies and they are the world to me. A good home can make all the difference for these misunderstood dogs.

vllybllstar: don't worry -- it's just a kleenex box. he sniffed it, and I think he got some fuzz in his nose -- he clearly wasn't a fan :-)

what a cute, sweet, precious boy! I love the pics with him curled up with the other dogs- so friendly and the pic of him sharing the window with is friend is precious. He is just a doll baby!

I just saw your new baby Kramer and clicked on Chance for a look see - what a handsome little man!

I hate the bad rap pit bulls get because a few idiots deserve to make up for their lack of masculinity by training dogs to be killers.

Chance is a handsome guy.
Jun 30, 2007 liz
Ah, the pleading eyes and wrinkled forehead combo. Pit bulls get me every time with that. He is gorgeous. I love how he's all curled up right into the softest, warmest part of his friend on the couch. Smart dog.

What a beautiful animal! His coloring is amazing. Cute, cute, cute!
Jun 30, 2007 sewinggoddess
Chance looks sooo much like our pit-mix Roxy... And she is the consumate potato to be sure. I completely agree with them being lovers. Roxy wants nothing more than to snuggle & give kisses & be with her people. She's sucha sweetheart & has an incredible personality.

HUGS to Chance!!!!! I just wanna give him loads of loves!

Remember NEVER to take a pit bull to a dog park! It's also a bad idea to have a pit bull living with other dogs. They are great dogs around people, but the animal aggression within them is a part of their nature. These articles explain the dangers and tell how dog aggression will appear suddenly from sweet pits who have never been that way before.

Glad to see you have all ignored mynameisbob. There can animal aggression in any terrier (or any dog for that matter), but not only is it rare, but it can be prevented. Don't worry, they don't just "go off". Anyone who knows anything about animal behavior at all will tell you. Chance looks absolutely lovely. I have met so many nice pits lately I am a convert. I would have adopted Chancilicious in a heartbeat.

Chance you are a handome friendly pit bull. Wishing you tons and tons of belly rubs, cookies, and friends to play with. I would like to say thank you to your family for sharing your wonderful pictures with us.:)

What a sweet baby!
I have a rescue pit/ridgeback with "eye make up" too!

They truly are the best dogs, I used to be scared of all, i mean ALL dogs. And one day i met this happy pitbull names daisy who changed my mind forever. i now have two rescued babies...

Good for you taking a chance on Chance. I wish the good, loving pit bulls and the families that love them got more press. They are beautiful, athletic dogs, and how peaceful they are, as you prove, is determined by how they are raised. He's beautiful...I love the picture with his head next to your other dog. What a sweet doggy home!

What a darling dog! I always tell my mom how sweet pit bulls can be and Chance is a great example! :D
Mar 11, 2008 johnnielovesherdogs
What a great looking pit bull. I just love the pictures of Chance snuggling with his sibling!! I have three dogs. Two pit bulls and a chow mix. My pit bulls do VERY well around other dogs and children, and both of them can be let off leash on a trail or on a walk becuase they come when they are called, regardless of the distraction (other people, other dogs). So, ignore mynameisbob, but I'm sure you already knew that!!

I want to thank everyone for their kind comments. Chance will be 4 years old on Dec. 17th, and he's one of the greatest dogs we've ever had. He is especially patient and loving with our little 8 pound yorkie mix.

heeloo - I came across this handsome boy in a search of pictures. I thought you might like to know that he is not a pitbull. He's a american bulldog. Yes they are similar but, his color,size and black snout are dead give away to he=is heritage :-)
