If you like big mutts then you will LOVE Chester. He is a 12-year-old American Bulldog mix who is looking forward to finding a forever family. He is 86 pounds of pure love and he is a favorite among the shelter staff and volunteers. Chester does well with other dogs but, as with all dogs at the shelter, a meet-and-greet with any resident dogs is a must before an adoption can be approved. The only thing that Chester has on his Christmas list is a fenced yard and a cozy lap to call his own.

Medical info: Chester had a benign tumor (perianal adenoma) surgically removed from his bottom. It is not expected to come back, but your veterinarian will want to regularly monitor the site.

ODH has not met this dog; we urge prospective adopters to do their own evaluation.
