Cheyney #338, Male, Eleven Years Old, Good with Dogs
This boy was rescued from a high kill shelter on 2/28/2017. He was an owner surrender and was in pretty bad shape. Cheyney is 11 years old and has spent most of his golden years being neglected and sick. When he was first rescued, we quickly realized that his teeth were worn down to the roots, his back legs were stiff when he walked, his nails were overgrown and his dew claws were so long they were digging into his legs. He is “Rescue & Rehab” at its purest definition. On top of all his issues , he was underweight and Heartworm positive. Since his rescuing, he has had his teeth worked on , gotten on the correct medication for his arthritis and his hair has fully grown back. He will have to be on medication for the rest of his years to keep him comfortable and able to walk, but this boy deserves a home to call his own, to spend the rest of his years.
Cheyney’s nick name around the house is the fun police. There will be no running, tugging, wrestling or playing in the house. And if them pesky kids from down the street ride their bikes in front of the yard one more time, he might have to chase them off! He loves his toys and isn’t afraid to let you know when he is hungry or has to go potty. (He can be pretty bossy!) He would do well in a home with other dogs or an only dog. He gets stressed out easily and doesn’t like when his foster mom gets out of his eye sight. The best home for Cheyney would be someone who is home most of the day and is understanding and loving. He’s not the type to cuddle and he will walk away when he has had enough lovin’ from his people. He LOVES going with his foster mom to feed the horses and gets very upset when he can’t go. Because of his joint issues, he is not crate trained and is limited to very short walks. He will not be good for an apartment, going up steps or being around young toddlers. Cheyney is a very special boy who has come a very long way in the year he has been with the Rescue. He is currently in Cypress TX area sharing his home with 6 other brothers and a sister. He gets along with the other dogs but can be a bit pushy at times.
