Cute Chesney male Pug Cross aged 5 years old. Came into our care as his previous owner’s circumstances had changed and he could no longer care for him. Can live as an only dog, or with a calm female if there is an existing dog in the household, following successful introductions. Children 10 years plus if a family applies. Chesney loves to be out of his kennel and pulls like a train to get outside the kennel gates, once he has got over the park, he relaxes and enjoys the rest of his walk. He is easy to manage on lead and harness and loves to sniff and explore. Seems to be fine walking with other dogs and meeting and greeting them out and about.
Chesney was already known to us as a boarding client at the kennels where we board our dogs. Poor little love hates kennels, sometimes refuses to eat and finds everything very stressful. As a result it is hard to assess him properly at this stage, so I will give some details provided by his previous owner: Described as affectionate. Has experience around visiting children aged 7 to 16 years but has not lived with children. Housetrained, travels well in the car. Okay at the vets, okay being groomed, okay with men and women. No unusual behavioural habits. Not destructive in the home. Okay with other dogs when out and about but has not lived with them.
Chesney will need time to adapt to new owner and family and may be stressed during introductions at the kennels. He will not come running into your open arms but may feel overwhelmed at the attention and new people. Any new owner must appreciate that Chesney is finding life difficult at the moment and may take a little time to settle and trust.
