A 2 year old rat terrier / dachshund mix with stunning green eyes, Chester is a precious boy who needs a special home. A peaceful and quiet household is a must; he will not do well in a busy home nor in one with young children. Happy and adorably playful with other dogs, watching him with his pen mates provides a window into the delightful companion hiding beneath his anxieties. Currently a bit “fluffy” at 17 pounds, Chester:
• Is house trained.
• Is good with other small and medium sized dogs (fearful of larger dogs, but could be worked with).
• Walks nicely on a leash.
• Is medium energy.
Chester’s trust will only be won with tender patience, and he needs a family who understands the fear he is experiencing in these new and uncertain environments and who is willing to help him continue his healing journey. A household with other dogs or one where someone is usually home will be best for him. This cutie opens up to us a little more every day! If you have the time and willingness to invest into loving Chester your reward will be a darling best friend for life.
Chester is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and heartworm negative.
