In late February, this adorable little fluffball Chester, a 4 year old havanese/lhasa mix, came to Popcorn Park. He was found as a stray and brought to our Newark facility. It is theorized that Chester was hit by a car and sustained several injuries that were left untreated, including a broken pelvis.
Chester was taken straight to our veterinarian who took x-rays and thoroughly examined him. Thanks to our Res-Q Fund, he was then sent to an orthopedic specialist who determined that surgery was not needed, and that bed rest may help to heal the break. After two months of continued care and cage rest, we are happy to report that Chester is now just about healed! He is doing fantastic, thanks to his medical department friends who cared for him during his convalescense and will just need some exercise restriction for a few more weeks.
Chester is an absolute love that bonds quickly with people. He tends to get a little protective of those that he is close to, so Chester will need a home with no children. A quiet, commotion-free home would suit him best, and he would make a wonderful little lap companion. Chester loves cats and seems fine with most dogs his size. He is well behaved, loving, and just an absolute sweetheart that is so deserving of a wonderful home where he will be cared for and spoiled for the rest of his life.
Chester is at the Society's Forked River facility. For more information, call AHS at 609-693-1900 and refer to File 24431 or e-mail us
