Are you the perfect someone to shower affection on little love-bug Chester?  Sweet and filled with love to give, Chester is all about finding someone who wants to snuggle and cuddle.  Happy to let everyone give him pets and belly rubs, he’s a sociable little fellow who loves all people and is good with other dogs, too.  And his big brown eyes will melt your heart. 

Chester is a truly handsome boy who walks well on a leash and is learning new things every day.  Picked up as a stray by Metro Animal Control, he is missing most of his hind left foot either from birth or due to a previous injury or wound that healed on its own.  Think Chester from Gunsmoke!  He's our own little limper who uses the foot for balance but doesn’t put weight on it when walks.  He shows no signs of pain with the foot and it certainly doesn’t slow him down or otherwise affect his happy-go-lucky, social butterfly self.  He really is just about the perfect dog. 

Chester is a 35 pound neutered Beagle mix, about 3 years old, housetrained, fully vetted, and up to date on all vaccinations.  

About Bonaparte's Retreat Dog Rescue

About Our Rescue Group...

Named in memory of Bonaparte, her own adopted shelter dog, Grammy-winning singer-songwriter and lifelong dog lover Emmylou Harris established Bonaparte’s Retreat Dog Rescue in 2004. Located in Nashville, Bonaparte’s Retreat first rescued dogs deemed unadoptable from the Nashville Humane Association. Since those early days, our work and mission have evolved and we now focus on saving adoptable dogs whose time has run out at Metro Nashville Animal Care and Control.

We are dedicated to providing nurturing care for adoptable dogs when their allotted time at a shelter has elapsed. Our mission is to prevent these wonderful animals from being euthanized and to adopt them into permanent, loving homes.

Bonaparte's Retreat Dog Rescue is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization. Visit our website to learn about how you can help, support us, foster, volunteer, or adopt.

Come Meet Our Pets...

Adoption Events and Meet & Greet Events are held at various times throughout the year at many locations, including the Brentwood Petco at 210 Franklin Road or the Brentwood Petsmart on Moore's Lane. 10:00am to Noon. These are not regularly schedule, so please always check our Facebook page or website to confirm dates and times.

We also participate in several larger special adoption events throughout the year. To learn about our scheduled events, you can check our website (, our Facebook page, or email us at

Our Adoption Process...

Our mission is to insure that all our rescued dogs are adopted into loving and permanent homes. We screen potential adopters and do all we can to insure that you adopt the right dog for your home, family, and lifestyle. At Bonaparte’s Retreat Dog Rescue, our adoption process works like this:

Visit our website to access our online adoption application:

If your application is approved, we arrange for you to meet the dog. We then bring the dog to you for a home visit to make sure the adoption is a good fit.

If you make the decision to adopt, a three-week trial adoption period begins during which either you or we can change course and cancel the adoption decision. During these three weeks, we are committed to doing everything possible to assist you and your adopted dog with adjusting to a new home and living environment.

Our adoption fee is $125 (or $75 for special needs or senior dogs, a senior being any dog 7 years or older).

All our adoptable dogs have received vaccinations, been spayed or neutered, tested for heartworms and either treated or started on prevention, and are current on flea and tick prevention. Because of our process, we regret that we are unable to do out-of-state adoptions.
