Hi, my name is Chesterton!

Adult Medium Male
Cocker Spaniel / Mixed

Meet the show-stopping Chesterton! He is a very loyal, five-year-old Cocker Spaniel with soft fur in stunning shades of black and white. He was rescued from the local shelter where he came in mostly blind, but is in a loving foster home waiting for the right family to come along!

Chester strikes the perfect balance between energetic and lazy. He loves playing with a ball or a squeaky toy. He loves walks and time out in the yard, but is also happy when he gets to snuggle up with his humans. His tail is always wagging! He gets along with dogs and cats, but would not do well with kids because of issues with his vision. 

An ideal home for Chester would be one with parents who will be committed to monitoring the cataract in his left eye. He had to have his right eye removed due to severe glaucoma/blindness, and his left eye is also vision impaired. Though he can see shadows and possibly more, over time it is very likely that Chester will lose his vision completely. He would also do best in a quiet, low-key home where there are not a lot of noises to startle him. He's a very happy and loving dog, but because of his limited eyesight he tends to scare easily.

Chester is a pro on a leash, and he loves walks! He is also crate trained and knows "no". He is one smart pup! He loves being outside, so someone willing to take walks or play fetch in the yard would be ideal!

This sweet pup is deserving of the perfect furever home. Could it be with you? Apply to adopt Chester today!
