I would like to introduce Chester. He is Stones Detroit’s Dog of the Week! Chester was picked up by a police officer in Genesee County and taken to a high-kill shelter. He was such a good boy that the officer expected a family to come and spring him from the clink but they never did. When the officer found out that animal control still had Chester, he went and visited him every day until Last Day Dog Rescue saved him.
Chester is a Boxer mix and is about two and a half years old. He loves to play and chase balls but will relax nicely, as you can see in his picture. He is very well mannered and doesn’t bark often but when he does it adds to his personality. Chester has a very unique bark, it sounds a bit muffled. He takes treats nicely and really just wants to please his people.
Once he was thoroughly checked over by a vet, it was discovered that he has a condition called luxating patellas. It’s fairly common among certain breeds and the vet says that it won’t affect his every-day life.
Due to lack of fosters, Chester is living at a boarding facility that works with the rescue. This handsome guy is looking for a family to call his own. Are you the one that Chester is waiting for?
