Chubby needs a caretaker or foster! Won't you consider helping him get a new start?
Chubby also known as Chumley is located in TN and needs a foster or foster-to-adopt commitment to come to FL. Once this commitment is made, transport arrangements will be made to bring Chubby to FL.
Chubby is an approx. 5 year-old Aussie mix that was turned in to the shelter because his owner was failing in health and not able to provide for him. Chubby is a bit overweight at 50 lbs. and the foster has put him on a diet which is going well. Chubby is a lover and just wants his person’s affection. He currently dislikes the car and car rides and will need someone patient to work with him on this as well. While in the car, Chubby paces when a car goes by and barks at it. Chubby is still learning to walk well on leash which the foster is working with him on. Due to this, a fenced in backyard is necessary. Chubby loves to play ball. His foster gave him a spa day as his fur was matted. He has been shaved in this area and his hair is growing back well.
He has been dog AND cat tested and did well. Chubby is up to date on vaccines, neutered, and heartworm negative.
