From the Foster:

Chance is a very shy and quiet dog so he would like a calm household. He likes to just watch what’s going on around him and is more comfortable when you’re on his level. He likes to take short walks at a faster pace.

Must have a fenced in yard because he can very hard to catch once outside.
He does great with a regular leash but a loop lead is very stressful for him. It gets caught underneath the collar and makes him defensive when trying to take it off. But a regular leash works perfectly when he has a collar that tightens when being pulled ( a martingale or limited slip collar). 
He needs someone who is patient enough to build up trust and friendship.

I would like to add he loves being outside so a fenced in yard is needed. He also can be hard to catch when outside so it’s important to have a closed in area. I’ve been putting a leash on him whenever he goes out too because of this reason

Chance loves car rides.
He’s very nervous so using slow movements eases him
