Chester has been doing extremely well in his Cornwall, NY foster home!
He is crate trained, walks well on a leash (though easily distracted), loves kids & other dogs.
Chester will require a fenced in yard to just wander around or to run & play!
Chester sees another specialist, November 5th, for a consultation re: his medical issues (see below.)
Chester came from a backyard breeder in Fonda, NY. He was for sale on their store’s Facebook page “as is” because he had bladder issues. After he was purchased and taken to a vet, it was discovered that he not only had bladder stones, but also a tick borne disease. The vet did more diagnostics only to discover that Chester has a genetic defect, ectopic ureter. The owner could not afford his care, and after owning him for 1 week and spending $1,600, he was turned over to ABC Basset Hound Rescue.
Ectopic ureters are a congenital anomaly of the urinary system, in which the ureteral orifice is inappropriately positioned caudal to the urinary bladder. This is the most common cause of urinary incontinence in juvenile dogs.
We will not be accepting adoption applications for Chester at this time until we find out the results of his surgery.
