Hi everyone my name is Chester and I’m a 9-year-old boy. When I was found by GR, I was pretty dirty, overweight, and sad. I didn’t know what was happening to me but it sure didn’t take me long to understand that I had just met a bunch of people who only wanted the best for me. My foster family is just amazing and I have three foster brothers who I love being with. I got cleaned up, put on a diet, and love…and my mood immediately improved. I could still lose a few pounds but at my age most of us could, right? I cannot tell you enough how wonderful my life is right now. I have a loving foster family and I have buddies to play and hang with. I perform my happy dance twice a day at meal times and it’s truly a happy dance as I haven’t felt all that happy for a while. I love my walks and car rides but I also love being a couch potato. I rarely bark ~ I don’t see the point and it takes up way too much energy. I love all people, all canines, and even cats are fine with me. In fact, I love ‘all creatures great and small’. I love being petted and I hold your hand while you rub my belly. Loud noises don’t bother me and you can leave me alone if you have to go out without me. The doc says I have a slightly enlarged heart, but he’s not worried about it and thinks I’m a big healthy boy (there’s that word ‘big’ again, hence the diet…ha-ha). I think my heart is a bit big because it is so full of love. Thank you Golden Rescue ~ I am one lucky, happy, grateful boy.
