If you love hounds, you’ll love CHESTER. This 1-year-old black and tan coonhound mix loves to run and sniff around the exercise areas here at Save the Strays. But, like most hounds, he’s quite happy lounging indoors, as well. Also like most hounds, he’s food-driven. Show him a treat and he’ll try his best to do what you want, once he understands what that is. He learned to sit in 5 minutes using treats. That’s also how we trained him to kennel up in his crate when he comes inside. He’s pretty smart, so if you get a bag of treats and devote an afternoon, you can probably teach him most of the basic commands. Chester is large (58 lbs.) and fairly active, so he needs room to run. A fenced yard would be best, but he can be taught better leash manners if you want to walk him. Because of his size and energy level, we think he would be best with adults only or a family with older, bigger children so he doesn’t knock them down when he’s playing. He’s also best as an only dog or with other large females. Apply for Chester online at www.savethestrays.org or email email@example.com for our application. Adoption fee $225.
