Here are a few other details about Checkers:
Great on leash
Very good in the car
Large fenced yard needed
Sweet and affectionate with people
Does not seem particularly prey driven (may be ok with cats)
Sleeps through the night (likes to have his bed in the bedroom)
Checkers is a very smart dog that loves to learn new things although he can be insistent! His foster home has taught him a lot of obedience skills (including wait, look at me, sit, down, come).
A dog-savvy, patient owner. He would be best in an adult-only home where he receives consistent care and attention he bonds quickly to his caregiver with lots of socialization - and would love another dog to pal around with.
This boy has lived in numerous environments Checkers so desperately wants/needs the security of a forever home.
