Chester

Terrier - Baby - Male
Adoptable Small Spayed/NeuteredUp-to-date with routine shotshousetrained

Born approximately October 2018, Chester is a male Terrier mix. Here is what his foster mom says about him: Chester came to us from a kind individual who found him running near a highway with a rope embedded in the front of his neck. They got him the immediate medical care he needed and reached out to us to find him the forever home he deserves! The vet’s best guess is he is around six months old but he doesn’t act like a puppy. He weighs 11 pounds, is neutered, and lives with three dogs and a kitty. He loves to cuddle and would cuddle all day if he could. When he’s not cuddling, you can usually find him playing ball or carrying around a stuffed animal. He is potty trained, pretty quiet, and very well crate trained – he doesn’t make a peep unless he has to potty. He loves rolling around with my youngest dog and would enjoy a friendly dog buddy that will continue to help him feel confident. He can be trusted alone in the house and has such a tiny mouth that I don’t think he could destroy much of anything, though he hasn’t tried. He has mostly ignored the cat but will occasionally try to get him to play. He seems scared of men’s arm/leg hair but is getting better with some continued love and encouragement. He “little dog” grumbles when he thinks my dogs will take his toy or treat but they are all 55+ pounds to be fair. When he really wants to play he will bite the bottom of my pants but we are working on this. Firm verbal commands scare him so he will need someone calm and caring to help him through these few issues. I really don’t have a lot of negatives about him outside of teaching him not to grumble and that things are okay when he gets nervous or hesitant. He’s been one of my easiest fosters ever.

Like all Mikey’s Chance dogs, this dog will come to you from a foster home that has provided loving one-on-one attention, socialization and some basic training, as well as quality food and exercise.
