No

No

Additional information

Chester prefers the company of people and doesn't want to interact with other dogs, usually ignoring them on his walks. He cannot live with dogs or cats but could potentially live with securely caged pets.

Family and environment

What kind of family am I looking for?

Chester can be wary of new people and can take his time to make friends initially. At least a couple of meets to our Godmanchester site will be required in order for you to make friends with him. He can live with teenagers and older, no younger visiting children please. Once he knows you he's such a little sweetie, well not so little he weighs nearly 40kg!

What type of environment would suit me?

Chester would love his own private 6ft fenced garden to charge around in as he's not allowed off lead on his walks due to his wary behaviour with people.

Things to note

Chester is a gorgeous, big soppy lump and loves nothing more than to have a spot (large) on the sofa next to you. He loves being close to people once his trust has been earnt.
He's struggling in kennels and is desperate for a loving new family to love.
