Dear future family!
My name is Chunk Norris or my mommies call me chonky- boy. When I first came to this shelter I was so small and chunky that my legs looked like tree stumps. Anyhow, I’ve been at the shelter since August 31st 2023.
I was found running loose on a busy road by a kind gentleman when I was around 3 months old, after chasing me around in the field I finally let him catch me and put me in his car. That's only because I was tired and it was hot. He brought me to this loud scary place with a lot of other dogs and some weird looking creatures that these people call cats? When my new mommies approached me I was very scared and tried to run away, I didn't know any better I was scared and didn't want to be hurt anymore.
Since being here I have learned to love my new 'family' and I've made a lot of friends! Although I like to act all big and scary when I'm in my kennel, when I'm out of my kennel I will shower you with kisses. I'm a tough guy, but this tough guy has a wish... no a desire .. to have my own family, my own siblings and my own house. I want nothing more than to be able to sleep on a warm couch and feel love for the rest of my long life. I've been waiting 252 days for someone to choose me. 252 days for someone to love me. 252 days to have a life outside of a kennel.
Please don't let me sit here for another 252 days, please give me a home before my one year anniversary at the shelter.
Love, Chunky boy Norris.
