"Chester" is an adorable senior male Hound mix who made his debut at the HSOV on February 10, 2016. This handsome gentleman has a tan short smooth coat with cream highlights, subtle black shading on his back, bowed front legs, a long tail, and a darling Hound face with soulful brown eyes and large floppy ears. "Chester" has a sweet, loving disposition and has become a favorite of our kennel techs and volunteers. Everyone has fallen in love with this guy :) "Chester" loves attention and looks forward to walks and spending time with his fan club members. He was neutered on February 23, 2016 and was also given rabies vaccine. "Chester" weighs 50-55 lbs. and could easily gain a few pounds to fill out his slim physique. He appears to be housebroken. These updated photos were taken on March 21, 2016, and it seems that "Chester" keeps getting more handsome each time we see him! He was chosen to participate in an adoption event at Pet Supplies Plus in Vienna WV on March 19th, and we were soooo proud of him. "Chester" was treated like a rock star and so many people were oohing and aawing over him as he pranced around the store wearing his cute pastel 'Adopt Me' bandana. He did extremely well with other dogs and crowds of people (including lots of small children). His volunteer date for the event brought "Chester" back to the shelter with a brand new toy (a bright orange plush ball) that he had chosen himself. We took a short video of him carrying his new toy around in his mouth and posted it on our facebook page. We introduced "Chester" to some of our free-roaming shelter mascot kitties when he was outdoors for photos, and he simply ignored them :) This sweet boy truly deserves a home where he will be spoiled in the manner to which he would like to become accustomed <3 UPDATE: "Chester" went to a fantastic foster home on July 24, 2016 and is being loved, pampered and spoiled <3 <3
