Name:   Dot Chester  

Description:   ~ 6 yrs ~ 32 lb ~ Fostered in Sterling, VA at Healthy Hound Playground

Dot is an absolute joy. Formerly a house pet, she now finds herself starting over. She's affectionate and the folks caring for her describe her as one of the sweetest dogs they have ever met. Dot is fairly low energy and enjoys tv time, soft beds and cuddles. She also enjoys being outside and looks forward to her walks. When she came to us, she was a robust 38 lbs. She's now a svelte 32 lbs and it suits her. Her original photos were absolutely terrible so she's been overlooked for months. Her fosters sent us these new photos in Jan 2023 and she looks like the healthy, confident beauty that she's always been.

Because she resource guards (food and people), we suggest that Dot would be happiest as an only dog. She's not aggressive by nature, but small children and other dogs hanging around her food bowl would be a concern.
