MEET CHESS!! This dapper boy just came in to LFS with his sisters, Terra and Heather. Chess is about 9-10 months old and ready for a fresh start. When I tell you this dog loves to cuddle, he LOVES to cuddle. He would not leave the vet’s lap the whole time he was being examined. Chess is a super sweet boy with an outgoing personality. All he wants is to be loved and to give it right back. He could use a little work on some basic manners and obedience, but he appears to be a smart boy who is food motivated. Chess is being treated for an ear infection and will be neutered in the coming days, then we will get him to a foster home. Stay tuned for updates as we learn more about him!

Foster update 10/20/21: Chess is feeling very festive in his Halloween bandana. He now knows how to sit, is crate trained, and is house broken. He will fit in well in an active household and would make a great running or hiking companion. If neither of those is your jam he would love to play fetch, go on walks, and play at the dog park. He does well with other dogs but might be a bit much for a dog that doesn’t like to play. Chess does everything big. He seems to have a real “go big or go home” attitude and loves life. He also LOVES people and is so affectionate. He is happiest with his people and dog friends. Chess is not at all aggressive but he can be a bit enthusiastic so he might do best in a home without small children because he might accidentally knock a tyke over trying to play or trying to give them a hug. He loves to give hugs.

Foster update 10/06/21: MR Chess is adjusting nicely to being in A foster home. He is a very relaxed dog who enjoys being around people and enjoys the company of other dogs. He is gentle with small dogs and is looking forward to when he can ditch his “cone of shame” in 4 days.
