  • 3 years old
  • Male

Weight (approx): 73 lbs

Cats: Yes

Health Notes:    Chester came into care as an owner surrender and had a face full of porcupine quills. He has since fully revovered. He is a shy guy but is very sweet once he gets to know you. Chester is neutered and microchipped. He is up to date on all his vaccinations DACPP, bordatella and rabies.

Ideal Home: Chester is a guy that could probably adapt to most environments. He is a very sweet boy and a good dog in so many ways. He needs consistency and clear boundaries. He would do well in a small town or country setting because busy city vehicles make too much noise for him to feel safe on his walks, although with exposure, this may improve and help him to realize that noises won't hurt him. 

His leashed walks are his biggest downfall and a new owner should know he loves his walks and is great for the most part, but if it's a busy day with distractions he will need a lot of support and guidance to redirect his excitement or frustrations.

In Chesters perfect adoptive home he would live in the country in a large fenced yard. While Chester can do well with dogs and may enjoy having a doggy sibling, he needs slow and proper introductions. He would be a jogging buddy or have multiple walks in a day. Kids are a bonus but they must be older. His perfect home would give him new chew toys every couple weeks and would share their popcorn for movie nights.
