Hello, I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I came to Michigan with the name Barbosa, but my foster mom thought I looked more like a Chester, so I am called Chester Barbosa, and when I hear that, I know I better pay attention. I came into an Alabama shelter after being attacked by a larger dog. My eye was so badly injured that it had to be removed, but it doesn't bother me a bit!
I am less than a year old and I love to play. I get to run around a big back yard right now, I’d love to be able to keep doing that. If I had a little person to run around with, I’d be super happy. I did get to play with my foster mom’s 5-year-old grandson, and my foster preteen step cousins, we got along great.
I met my foster nephew, he was a big shepherd and another day I met my foster cousin, he was a little terrier mix. I got along great with both of them and ran around the yard playing. My foster mom has two cats, they don’t really like me, but I wanted to get to know them better. If you have a cat who has spent time with another dog, maybe they will like me too.
I can play fetch, I like to play tug of war, I sit and take a treat very nicely. I give great kisses. I love it when you call me a good boy and rub my sides.
I will always be there for you, snuggled up on the couch or laying by your feet. I fit nicely on your lap while sitting at your desk if you are one of those lucky people who work from home. Or if you don’t want me on your lap, I can lay on a pillow or blanket beside you. As long as I can see you or hear you, I’m happy. I sleep in a crate right now; I have soft blankets and toys to play with. But I’d be more than willing to keep you company in a nice warm bed.
I am still learning how to let my foster mom know when I need to go outside, just trying to figure out the communication part. I haven’t had an accident in my crate at night in three weeks. I walk very well on a leash and love to look around. I have gone on quite a few car rides, at first, I didn’t want to get in, but then I realized I was coming back to a place where I was loved. My foster mom let me have free reign of the house while she was away, with the exception of her room; where the cats stay, and I didn’t do anything wrong. I waited patiently for her to come home.
Remember, I’m one family member you get to choose, and if you choose me; I will offer you unconditional love and hope you can offer me the same. If you rescue me, I’ll rescue you.

interested in adopting?
The first step is for you to fill out an adoption application. In order to meet and greet available dogs, we must receive a completed application. Approval for adoption requires a successful home visit and veterinary reference. Applying to adopt and meeting a potential dog does not obligate you to adopt the dog you meet and greet. If it is not a match for you or them, adoption will not take place.
