Meet Chestnut

Chestnut is full of energy!!It's been a very busy year for Friends of the Shelter with heartworm positive dogs .... Dozens of dogs have come into the shelter and found to be heartworm positive during their pre-adoption health screening. Heartworm disease is easily prevented but not so easily treated ... Each of our heartworm positive dogs have undergone three months of rest and lots of medications to make it to this point where they are finally ready to be adopted!

Chestnut is your typical goofy, happy Border Collie mix who is looking forward to a life of play dates, dog parks, hiking and camping, lots of belly rubs, a soft cushion to sleep on, and of course, lots of yummy treats! He seems to be very eager to please and is quite a companion. He does have some herding tendencies but nothing extreme. He is crate trained and housebroken and seems to do well with dogs of all sizes and coexists with cats.

A vet reference is required for adopting this guy. Chestnut is in foster care so if you are interested in meeting him, please submit your completed application online via the website link or make sure it is directed to the adoption counselors attention if you drop it off at the shelter or fax it in (614-525-6658). Once your application has been received, we will forward it along to Chestnut's foster mom to arrange a meeting.
