Chesterton

It is hard to stop looking at this guy’s melt-your-heart face. I’m afraid I’d give him far too many treats. Chesterton has a beautiful fawn coat with an absolutely unforgettable face. He’s still just a bit thin at 50 pounds but he’s working on that. He is about 4 years old and has quickly caught on to family life even though he probably was never in a house  before now.

He is in a foster home with 2 other dogs, a couple teenagers, and 2 and 4 year old skin kids. The dominant female Boxer had to remind him which dog is in charge and now they snuggle together. His foster dad had to tell him getting on counters is not OK, and Chesterton is good with that too. This boy learns quickly, especially if food is involved. He has a medium energy he adjusts to the environment; play time, nap time, or jogging with his foster dad is all good for him. He’s a very even keeled guy, although he can get a bit excited when he’s on leash and sees another dog. With experience and training he’ll be fine with that too. He is heartworm positive but not symptomatic. As always, he is on monthly heartworm prevention and ABR will always help with treatment.

Four year old Chesterton is learning family life quickly. He used to scale the 6 foot fence looking for adventure, but he’s learned that’s not OK, and all the adventure he needs is at home. He is house and crate trained and, as noted above, does well on leash. He gets along with other dogs and kids, but we don’t know about cats. Now, about that face and those treats…
