Featured Dog: Chester – GBNF

Chester looks distinguished (just add a pipe there)

My first impression of Chester was that he looked rather solemn and distinguished, and I was prepared for a dog who would be slightly aloof, but polite about receiving attention.

Chester wants your attention!

Boy, was I wrong. (And boy, was I glad to be wrong.) Chester reminded me of a happy puppy — affectionate (he gives extremely wet kisses and seems to think all wrongs can be cured with a good bellyrub and a steady stream of slurpy kisses), social (he greeted other dogs and people rather happily), and very, very snuggly (he loves sitting next to you on the bench and leaning against you. Who needs a blanket when Chester’s around?)

Chester is a leaner

The other details: he’s roughly 6-7 months old, has a face that seems like the exact middle of a boxer and a bloodhound, a lab retriever personality. He already knows ‘sit’ and will do anything to get you to like him, which makes him very trainable. No word yet on his take on toys, but I suspect he’d make a wonderful walking/running partner.

Chester is a very loving dog– if you think you have love and affection to match his own, by all means, do come see him in Kennel 14. For more information, contact doginfo@apsofdurham.org

Chester thinks he can sit on the bench without falling.

Happy Chester
Can you imagine coming home to this face?
