By Elle, Foster Mom
Why did you decide to foster Chester?
Chester caught my eye at Fulton County Animal Services January 2017 because he looked like a manatee in his intake picture. I spent the next 6 months taking him out and letting him have long weekends or weeks out of the shelter. He was adopted on his 6 month anniversary. Unfortunately, 13 months after his adoption he was found as a stray again. Fulton County Animal Control was at max capacity, so I brought him home to foster. I reached out to FTTF to see if they would take him, and they said yes!
Does Chester have any nicknames?
Nah, Chester is the only name that suits him.
How would you describe him in three words?
Spazzy, smart, and snuggly.
What is Chester’s favorite thing?
He loves to get kisses on his muzzle, and he loves doing zoomies in the rain.
Describe Chester’s perfect day:
Morning zoomies, standard breakfast with maybe leftover sausage if foster mom goes to Homegrown, walk on the Atlanta Beltline learning leash manners, snuggles on the couch, play time with foster sister Zoey, dinner, and more couch snuggles
Describe Chester’s ideal family:
His ideal family will be willing to dedicate time to training. He is very smart and is relearning the good manners he had prior to his failed adoption.
He cannot be in a home with any cats inside or out. Older children to teenagers would be best as he doesn’t know his size. He does require a fenced in yard because he sometimes refuses to do all his business on a leash. He is currently in a home with two small dogs, and one medium female dog, however he has been hesitant meeting new dogs after his failed adoption.
