Meet Checca (Active Senior Gentleman, Good with Older Kids & Dogs)

Arf! Hello! My name is Checca, and I am a ten year old hound mix who weighs around 60 lbs. Did you just read that and think "ten is old"? Well, let me tell you ... I am playful, active, and what my human friends call "spunky." :-)

I arrived at the shelter as a stray doggie, and I immediately adjusted to my new circumstances. I am a go-with-the-flow kind of dog! I've made lots of human friends here among the staff and volunteers. They say I am kind-hearted, handsome (obviously!), and a true gentleman.

I love going out on walks and exploring. I tug lightly on my leash and walk especially well in a harness. I don't yet know any commands, but I listen well. I am super motivated by food -- yummies! -- and I sometimes demand-bark for more treats. What can I say? Maybe I'm still a growing boy. Hehe!

I have gentle manners and don't jump up or act silly. Well, I only act silly when I'm playing with my toys! I really enjoy chasing down a ball or tugging on a rope. I'm still a puppy at heart!

I would do well in a home with older kids and, of course, adults. I'd also do spectacularly well with a doggie companion. I am both playful and submissive with other dogs and would be an excellent doggie BFF for your pooch. Please bring your pup along with you when you come to meet me.

Thanks for reading all about me. If you're looking for an older gentleman with a playful streak and a loving heart, I'm the fella for you. I can't wait to meet you!

Love, Checca xoxo
