Chester has come into WARS as sadly his owner could no longer care for him. He is a charming boy, who walks well on a lead and, even though he is a Trailhound, is very gentle when he meets new people. He gets on well with other dogs and is comfortable in most situations.
Chester would be best as an only dog in the home but would love doggy friends to socialise with on walks and children 8+. He does need to lose a little weight, so his new family must be willing to stick to a diet regime. Being a Trailhound he will need a garden with minimum 6ft fences.
Trailhounds are very adaptable dogs who make very good family pets. They have fantastic temperaments and tend to be great around children, other dogs and other animals. They need plenty of exercise but in once in the home love nothing more than curling up in front of the fire. They do however, love a smell.. so their noses are likely to be found centimetres off the ground, so recall often needs some work. They are relatively quick learners who are highly motivated by food.
