Chester is a baby Golden Retriever mix puppy who was found with his two siblings as strays. Chester ended up at the Little Rock Dog Pound where, like many of the animals, they had little chance of getting adopted or making it out of the shelter without becoming sick. Fortunately for Chester, he was able to come to the DogsOnly rescue and rehome program.
Chester was so happy to get out and get back on the grass that he just ran and ran and rolled in the grass. He loves to run and play and bark. He is quite the happy little puppy and about 8 weeks old and maybe 8 pounds. He loves to play with his foster siblings and is a typical puppy. He needs a home that has the time and energy to raise a healthy well adjusted puppy into a good canine companion.
Chester is energetic and very happy young puppy, and will probably grow up to be a first-class canine companion. However he is not for a family seeking an "easy" puppy, because there is no such thing. Please remember that as beautiful and cuddly as Chester is at the moment, he will grow into an adult canine companion in no time at all. You should also be prepared for the usual trial of rearing a young puppy including the chewing, crying, potty training, and constant demands. For this reason we would prefer that Chester’s new guardians have experience with young puppies and understand their special needs. Remember, just like kids, they grow up real fast, and need lots of patience, love and attention along the way.
You can meet Chester at the west Little Rock Petco on Chenal Parkway across from Target and Home Depot every Sat and Sun from 1:00 PM to 4:00 PM. Please be sure and call (501-219-9907) before you come to visit him to make sure that he is still available for adoption. Chester has received a complete medical evaluation, his first rounds of shots, rabies, fecal and worming medication, flea/tick preventative, heartworm preventative, grooming, and will be altered and receive her microchip as soon as he’s old enough. His adoption fee is $125 and helps to reimburse some of the cost if the medical care provided that Chester has needed. If you think that Chester would make the perfect addition to your family, you are invited to send an email to Contact@DogsOnly.org or complete an online adoption application by clicking the orange text links at the top or bottom of this page.
If you don't find that special companion you are looking for in the DogsOnly rescue, rehabilitation, and re-home program then please Little Rock Animal Services or one of the many other central Arkansas rescue organizations to save a rescued canine companion.
