Hi, I'm Chester! Mostly Mutts came for me at animal control & initially thought I had burns on my back. Thank goodness, that was not the case, but rather a very bad case of allergies! Good vet care, allergy medicine & a special food have me feeling a LOT less itchy & healing up. I participated in the prison foster/training program where I learned a lot!

• OTHER DOGS/CATS/KIDS: I liked playing with the dogs I met in the prison foster/training program, so let’s meet / No cats as I did try to get the neighbor’s cat in a temp foster home / Older child please (ages 15+). I met two kids at Mostly Mutts (ages 7 & 10) & wasn't able to control my excitement, but I showed no aggression. Kids shouldn't walk me as I can be a bit of a challenge on my leash.

• PERSONALITY/ENERGY LEVEL: My fun nature was evident immediately - starting with my 'freedom ride' from animal control. I was really sweet & SO happy that I enjoyed the music on the ride! I am very sweet & very playful, & I am not shy about 'talking' to get your attention from my room when I was at the shelter. My whole-body wags to show my love & enthusiasm! I am definitely what one would call a 'people dog'. My foster says I am a great dog inside & outside. While I LOVE to be active, my foster says I was completely fine having a lazy day of lounging & sleeping when she wasn’t feeling well / My energy level in general is 7-9, so I would be happiest with an active family member who will help me use up my energy on a regular basis.

• SKILLS/CRATE/POTTY: In the Mostly Mutts University training program, I am showing how smart I am with the commands I have mastered: 'sit’, ‘down’, ‘stay’, ‘come’, ‘drop it’, ‘leave it’, ‘go to your place’, & ‘bang bang’. I also use proper door etiquette & accept friendly strangers without jumping. I’m currently working with my trainer to polish up my leash skills as I’m a little bit reactive when I’m on the leash right now. I have been doing a lot better with not being so distracted on walks since being in my foster home, but squirrels still get me so excited each time! We are working on it. / I learned to go into my crate on command in the prison program, & I was well-behaved & quiet in my crate there / My potty habits have been great at Mostly Mutts & in the prison program.

• LIKES/DISLIKES: I really like to play & be active with the volunteers & my foster. I love playing with the over-sized balls in the play yards at Mostly Mutts & am enjoying time outside with my trainer, so a fenced yard where I can run off some energy with you would be great fun & likely key to me being a well-adjusted & happy guy. I love to sniff the yard at my foster’s house, so much so that I sometimes don’t hear when it’s time to come inside—oopsie! I also love to steal your spot on the bed if you get up, hehe. A newfound hobby is people watching through the front door in my foster home. My foster mom is very impressed at how quietly I watch the world outside / Other than being away from my people, I can't think of any dislikes, though I would not be happy if I did not get the exercise, training, love & attention on which I thrive!

• MEDICAL: I'm current on vaccinations, micro-chipped & neutered. I'm on a special food to help with my skin sensitivity & Apoquel medicine for skin/food allergies. I'm also getting medicated baths twice a week which is really helping!

I am looking for a family that is a match for my active & fun nature! Adoption fee $299.00. I’m located in Kennesaw, Ga.
