Chunky is such a ladies man! Now in foster, he hasn't been able to snuggle up with their lady dog, but he's been giving her kisses through the dog gate. And she's fallen in love with him! She can't wait to come through the gate and become his girlfriend. His fosters are surprised since she usually doesn't like visiting pups. Now she adores one!

This affectionate boy is also a people lover. He loves to be close to his humans and get their belly rubs. He will hop up on the bed to get those belly rubs. Then he goes back to the floor to take naps. He also likes to go outdoors to sniff and wander around the yard, and he leash walks very well, seldom pulling. At home, he's a smart boy who answers to his name and "stay and is learning "sit. He's house-trained and does well in his crate when his fosters are away.

Chunky will love to move into a variety of homes where he can relax and have some outdoor time for sniffing and exploring. He'll enjoy having dog buddies. He's a big boy who can be excited so will probably do best in a home with big kids to play with. He is heartworm positive, but all that means is that he'll need a couple of months of rest during treatment, at APA!'s expense. Come meet him. Offer him a belly rub and he'll follow you home!
