Needs to have a fenced environment and would benefit from obedience training.
Chester came to us from a shelter - they asked us to take in this neglected boy. He has been seen by our vet and will be put on meds for dry eye, conjunctivitis and ear infections. He was given a dental , X-rays were done and he has no joint disease or arthritis. Chester is smaller and a good weight. He's a bit crazy but in a fun way - and everyone says he's super nice! He'll go to his foster home this week and we'll have updates.

Chester has been in foster care four weeks now, only because GRIN Is making sure what eye medications he should be on before he is adopted. Chester has a wonderful, loving disposition. He is a very excitable boy who absolutely loves going for walks. Chester has a habit of wanting to jump and put his paws up on people when he meets them, or stands and puts paws on the front door when it’s time for a walk. His foster family is working on his manners. He has learned several basic cues and responds quickly most of the time. Chester is a very playful boy, loving to play tug-of-war or chasing after balls. He still pulls pretty hard on a leash, and has a dislike of having a collar or halter put over his head... he is a Houdini of fast moves and ducking.

Sweet Chester has been in his foster home for three weeks now and he has just settled in like he’s one of the family. He knows at bedtime that his spot is in the crate, lights out and one call and he goes right in.￼￼ Chester goes for walks regularly now, a harness seems to work a bit better for him than a collar, he doesn’t pull as much.￼ He really enjoys his meal times, getting very excited but waits his turn￼ politely. His foster family is working on some basic cues and Chester is a very quick learner and anxious to please. Chester is also learning to socialize better with dogs outside of the home. ￼￼￼￼ Chester really loves to chew on Nylabones and has never chewed up anything he’s not supposed to.￼￼ Chester is one handsome boy just waiting for his perfect forever home.

Chester has been in his foster home for two weeks now and has settled in like he’s always been here. Chester now sleeps in his crate every night, going in willingly. We no longer have to hold his bowl while he is eating, he eats his meals in his crate now. He recognizes his name and is a very fast learner, having learned several new cues in the past week. This sweet boy is what they call “a Velcro dog“. Chester absolutely loves human interaction. He is a very alert, attentive boy who is going to make some lucky family very happy.

Chester’s first week in his foster home has been fantastic. This sweet boy is a real delight. Chester is house trained and crate trained. He gets along wonderfully with the two resident foster dogs and cat. He was recently visited by 3 children ages 9-13, and had them all in giggles with his love and kisses. Chester is a very social boy who absolutely loves everyone. He freely gives tail wags and snuggles and kisses. He will eat his food from the bowl, but he likes it much better if you hold the bowl for him. Chester has already picked up on waiting his turn to receive treats and he is learning that a leash is a good thing, getting to go for walks. His eyes are improving by leaps and bounds with medication. When he is outside, one whistle will bring him running and when he’s being ornery a simple “no” seems to suffice. Chester is a very loving boy who will bring many smiles and happiness with him.
