Chester is a very handsome 6 year old large spaniel crossbreed who enjoys his own company and likes to keep himself busy with lots of enrichment games such as Kongs, snuffle mats & scent work. He loves long walks in the country but due to being worried by new people, these walks need to be in quiet areas where he won't meet lots of strangers.
Chester is looking for a very experienced home that has had rescue dogs in the past.This home must be STRICTLY ADULT ONLY with a maximum of 2 adults that are willing to do multiple meets with Chester until he has built a good relationship and feels comfortable with them. For this reason adopters will need to live within 45 minutes of the centre. Chester's new owners must be prepared to take on multiple training programmes with help from our training team and continue them further in his new home, he will need a home with limited visitors and no visitng children and he would also benefit from having a room of his own to help him settle in away from any visitors where he can engage in enrichment without being interrupted.
Chester needs a secure private garden with a minimum of 6ft fencing so he can safely have some off-lead exercise. He could potentially be left for 2-4 hours if this is built up gradually. Chester must be the only pet in the home but can walk with doggy pals out and about.You can apply for Chester by clicking on the 'Come and Meet Me' button below, but please be aware that that successful applicants may not be contacted until circumstances change. Applications will close when we have found a suitable match.
