Adoption pending! Chester is a darling 10-year-old Jack Russell. He loves everyone and is good with children. Chester would make a great therapy dog with a little work on basic obedience. He does have some typical terrier traits. He would be best in a home as an only dog or with a dog that would not challenge him. Chester does some food guarding with other dogs and can become agitated when excited so needs an owner that can manage him and show good leadership. He is also prone to door dashing as many terriers are. Also he is not good with cats. Chester is working on manners in his foster home learning to sit, wait at doorways, and leave it. He is reliably potty trained. Chester was abandoned in a crate so his food guarding tendencies are understandable. He also panics in a crate. Chester was emaciated and horribly neglected when he came into rescue so he has come a very long way to being the happy, healthy little guy he is now. Chester previously had a back injury so keeping him exercised and at a healthy weight is a must in his new home. Chester is a sweet and affectionate little character. He's looking for someone who will keep him busy and love him forever.
We are a small but determined group of animal lovers in the Wichita area. We rescue dogs from the local shelters and accept dogs that owners relinquish for adoption. We do our best to ensure that all adopters are willing and able to provide a safe and healthy home for the life of the dogs they adopt. We do this because it needs to be done.
