Scottish Terrier Mix
Yes with slow introductions
Unsure but he would probably be ok
Meet Chester! If you are looking for a companion to shower you with endless love and happiness this is the dog for you.
Chester has many amazing qualities but here are just a few-
6 year old, 35 lbs, long and low mystery terrier mix
Amazingly loving and full of happiness with his people, but never overly needy.
Perfect behavior in the home- fully house trained, never barks (even when the doorbell rings and the other dogs do), never jumps on people, never destructive in any way, no separation anxiety, happily crate trained, calm and respectful
Great with his foster dog siblings. Very respectful of his 9lbs sister and his cranky 25lbs brother
Perfect energy level- Want to do a 5 mile hike? Chester would love to join you! Want to spend all day in bed watching movies? Chester would love to do that too
Long flowing salt and pepper coat that is non-shedding and low maintenance
Chester is just the happiest guy! If you even so much as look in Chester’s direction his happy tail starts thumping and his whole body starts to wiggle. Sometimes his tail even wags in his sleep. Unfortunately, people have not always been kind to him. Chester was confiscated from an abusive situation and then found himself on death row in an overcrowded shelter. Because of his past he does need slow introductions to new people. New people trying to pet him before he is ready really scares him. With time and patience he warms up to everyone, he just needs to get to know them on his own terms. Oddly enough Chester is actually great in crowded settings such as walking down a busy street, and if new people come over to your house and don’t pet him he is totally calm and happy to have them.
Chester is looking for a special adopter who understands the trauma he has been through, and has the patience to allow him to come out of his shell and be the sweetest most loving boy his foster knows him to be. In return Chester promises to provide endless snuggles, goofy smiles, silly antics, and a whole lot of love.
