Adopt an animal

Chester

Age: 5 yearsSex: MaleBreed: Rough CollieAdoption fee: £250.00

Chester is a sweet but very nervous boy who came to us after his elderly owner could no longer meet his needs, he has always had a very nervous side to him so we are looking for adopters who understand his needs and not put too much pressure on him. He will need a nice quiet home where he can feel safe and relaxed, sudden or loud noises scare him and he will run and hide. Chester will need a secure and fully enclosed garden with a 6 foot fence, this will keep him safe and sound.

Once Chester gets to know and trust you he is a very sweet boy who loves attention and likes to be around you, Chester loves other dogs and is more confident when around them. We will be looking for a home where their is a confident dog already established in the family. This will help Chester settle and show him how to enjoy life. New adopters will need to be able to come for multiple meet and greets with Chester so he builds a bond with them before actually taking him home.

Chester will need an adult only home where there is a confident and suitably matched dog already.

DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF APPLICATIONS WE ARE RECEIVING IF YOU HAVE NOT HEARD BACK FROM FROM US WITHIN 2 WEEKS IT MEANS YOU HAVE NOT BEEN SUCCESSFUL THIS TIME FOR THIS DOG. SUCCESSFUL APPLICANTS WILL BE INVITED TO THE CENTRE TO MEET HIM.

Closed to new applications
