Adoptable animal of the week: Chester

on August 29, 2013

Each week, Oakland North features an animal that is up for adoption at the Oakland Animal Shelter. This week, we have Chester.

Chester is a three-year-old mastiff mix.  In his foster home, he loves his toys and his leash walks.  He’d do well with a family of adults (and children if more than ten years old) with dog experience and—ideally—another dog at least his age who’ll play with him sometimes.  (Cats are okay too.)  If you’re home a lot and willing to build upon his training, you’re perfect!  His foster family says he’s been through a lot and deserves to have the best life ever. See more pics and video of Chester here:

If you’d like to give Chester a home, contact the director of Oakland Animal Services to arrange a visit. Chester is neutered and up to date with his current shots.

For more information, see or visit the Oakland Animal Services at 1101 29th Avenue, Oakland, CA. You can also call: 510-535-5602.
