You're interested in Chester if:
You live in the country and are concerned about needing a protective dog to put a certain amount of trepidation in strangers at the gate. (He'll be glad to oblige) Chester will check out all the nooks and crannies of the property for anything new.
You don't intend to take Chester into town for walkabouts. (That wouild be too stressfull for all)
You want a good companion that will be around as you do chores or take care of the place. You're willing to throw the occasional ball or frisbee. Bring him in the house at night and he will be on duty when needed.
Chester is three years old and came from a loving home. He didn't have a lot of training and this was being remedied by his owner/handler. Through an unfortunate set of circumstances, the training had to be curtailed and Chester found his way into rescue.
Chester is a striking dog. He wants to spend his time with his person. He will do best as a companion dog for an individual that wants to work with him, enjoy the interactions and experience the joys of comeraderie. Like many Border Collies, he is not interested in meeting a bunch of strangers on a city street - he would prefer to be at your side in your back yard or on a trail.
He is house-trained, crate-trained and settles nicely overnight. He will bark when he knows that his person is around, but not with him when he should be. He does not belong in a situation where his person is gone for long periods every day.
Chester enjoys playing with balls, but is not obsessive about it. He is getting a lot of exercise, losing a few pounds, and developing his stamina. He adjusted well into a different atmosphere when he arrived. Behavior with cats is unknown.
He weighs 53 pounds,is neutered and up to date on his shots.
Due to the circumstances preceding his entry into rescue, a prospective adopter will learn about proper protocols, leadership and handling at the Packworks facility in Arlington, Washington. You will be rewarded with a loyal, partner that will share your life. As I write this, Chester is lying quietly nearby, ready to move into the next part of the day.
If you feel that Chester would fit into your lifestyle, please fill out the online adoption application and contact Bob: email@example.com. You can even use the telephone: 253-229-2623
