Look who is growing up! Chester is a WCAL foster home with two young kids to play with, and he's having fun chasing them around. He also made a few dog friends going to work with his foster each day! Chester is a clever puppy who we believe is destined to be a medium-sized dog (perhaps topping out at around 50 pounds or so... without a DNA test, this is hard to predict with any certainty). He's teaching his foster family about putting their shoes away, and in exchange, they're helping him with potty training. It's a great arrangement with lots of snuggles to go around. Chester will be ready for adoption on Valentine's Day after he is neutered, vaccinated, and microchipped
We ask that all WCAL puppy adopters commit to attending a reward-based training class with their new puppy (we'll help you find a qualified, dog-friendly trainer near you). This is the best way we know how to help you bond with your new pup, give you access to current training techniques and ensure that your new dog becomes a well-rounded member of society. We believe in being proactive and know from experience that the best time to train a dog is NOW! It's important to us that all the dogs we rescue get the very best start. If you don't have time to attend training classes with a puppy, please consider choosing an adult dog or waiting to adopt until your schedule is more flexible.
We have no information about Chester's parents or their possible breed mix. Before applying to adopt, verifying that this pup will be welcomed by your landlord and homeowners insurance, regardless of breed, is important.
