Our Chester is a mellow soul, who just lost his home due to a particularly nasty divorce. Six years old, he has lost his devoted mom, and seems perplexed at his new life in a busy multi-dog rescue.

Chester is a stunning, standard American Eskimo Dog: at 30 pounds he is a medium sized dog, at an optimal weight. He has a beautiful, full Eskie coat, with a light undercoat and some faint biscuit markings. Our vet places him at 6 years old, based on standard evaluation markers: teeth, eyes and energy level. His coat is in beautiful shape, and is soft to touch. As an Eskie, he does shed a good deal, and blows his coat a couple times a year.

Chester has a neutral temperament, and he seems to adapt slowly to whatever situation he encounters. He would make an ideal companion for an active single or couple who have some rescue experience, but have the patience who to let Chester warm up at his own pace. He has lived in a multi-dog home before, and seems to adapt well to pack dynamic. We think he would thrive in a multi-dog home with one or two other balanced dogs. He may also do well in a feline home, if properly supervised.

Chester has made a great start with his obedience work, and knows most of his commands. He is well on the way to becoming a Canine Good Citizen. Motivated adopters can easily take him the rest of the way. Eskies tend to relish their obedience training, and it is one of the best ways to channel their considerable intelligence, and provide much needed mental stimulation. Obedience work is a wonderful way to bond with Chester, as he is both treat and praise motivated, and very easy to handle.

Chester has good house manners and is house trained and crate trained. Adopters should expect to troubleshoot the occasional accident that will inevitably occur during his transition to a new home. He is in optimal health, and is neutered. He has been vaccinated for rabies, DHLPPC (distemper, hepatitis, leptospirosis parvo, parainfluenza and coronavirus). He has been boostered as needed. He has had the 4dx test, and is negative for heartworm, lyme, earlichia and anaplasmosis.
