My Story


I am sad to report that our beloved Chester passed away peacefully and surrounded by love on September 19th.  There are not enough words to thank you for choosing use to be his parents in 2014.  We, as well as his boxer sister loved him instantly and will miss him for the rest of our days.  He brought us all more love, laughs and companionship than I can express.  Sadly we are now faced with learing how to live without him.  My mission for all my dogs has always been to make each day better than the one that passed.  Chester provided us with a great life and we did the same for him!!!! 


Sadly I need to let you know our dear Chester passed away yesterday.  Please let Theresa know.  I have a cell number but when I have texted  her in the past she Has not replied. 
He was our special and most handsome boy ever who made our life worth living!!!! He will be missed beyond belief.  Ches was a month shy of turning eight. 
We are forever thankful to the rescue for choosing us to be his parents.  We loved him instantly and will miss him for the rest of our days.  Every day my goal  was to make each day of his life better than the last. 


Chester fit right into our family from the start.  He and his sister Shea (a boxer) have been loving siblings as soon as he came into our home approximately 6 years ago.    She was 1 year old And he 1-1/2 years old. Never have there been separation anxiety issues. He eats Royal Canin low fat gastrointestinal food for his sensitive stomach. He loves to chase the laser nightly, bat around a tether ball hanging from our tree and play in the hose and swim. In addition, he also loves going on walks, snuggling, giving hugs and accompanying us everywhere we go.  Twice a week he and Shea go to “puppy camp”  to socialize and burn some energy. He truly is the sweetest boy ever!!!!
May 2019 he started leaking urine only to find out he had a free floating mass in his abdomin pressing on his bladder. Needless to say we were devastated!!  The tumor was hemangiosarcoma and his prognosis was 6-9 months. He had a pretty extensive surgery due to the location but never slowed down or fell ill.  We chose not to do any chemotherapy because it did not lenghthen his prognosis.  A great year for all of  passed and we decided to have him re-evaluate by the specialist. After an exam, bloodwork, chest xray and abdominal ultrasound the cancer has not returned!!!  We were exhilitated to say the least!!!!!  We will follow up in 6 months time.  I want to add that my vet recommended giving Chester I’m Yunnity which is a mushroom supplement known to specifically target hemangiosarcoma from studies done at the University of Pennsylvania.  We cannot say difinitively that is what kept the cancer away but I wanted to put it out there. 


Fourth of July marks two years of continuous love and happiness with our baby boy.  He enjoys the never ending play and companionship with his sister Shea.  In addition, he looks forward to our long daily walks, trips to the park and once a week puppy camp.  His agility and physical strength allows him to jump in and out of the above ground pool which is his all time favorite!  We feel so fortunate to have Chester in our home.  He was the addition to our family that makes it feel complete.


I am writing with an update about our baby boy Chester.  The 4th of July marks the one year anniversary of Chester being in his forever home!  Right from the start he fit in.  He and his sister Shea share the same energy level and are great together.  He loves to cuddle with us every chance he gets.  

His favorite things to do are go on long walks, wrestle and play with his sister and swim in a small pool we have in the back yard.  The 3x12 pool is above ground which he can jump in and out of to swim and cool off with grace and style.

We are forever grateful to have Chester in our lives.  He gives us never ending love and happiness.  Adding Chester to our family has made it complete.  


Chester (Charlie) is such a great addition to our family. We really love him and my wife and I often say that he completes our family (we also have Shea who is a boxer from a different rescue). Shea and Chester love each other and are great together. 

Chester has made our life complete. We enjoy watching he and his sister Shea play, cuddle and act silly. We love him so much!!


Charlie is a handsome boy! What a joy to be around. I've only had Charlie a week but what I can tell you is that he likes to play with his other boxer house mates. We went to the vet and both times he saw the cats and couldn't care less. I had him around my neighbors young kids and he did well. Because of Charlie's young age he would do best in a home with other dogs to play with or kids. Charlie is such a lovely boy that you can't go wrong with him. Charlie is looking for his forever family to share all his love with. If you can provide Charlie with a loving home and has his individual needs, then please submit your application because this beautiful boy won't be around long.
