Meet Chonk! This special boy, is looking for a special home! Chonk arrived at the shelter back in December, and was fearful and defensive of new faces. We're not sure of his prior household history, but he had a hard time acclimating to the shelter life. With the support of staff and volunteers, Chonk was able to gain trust in people again. He has benefitted from the routine of daily walks, potty breaks, and interactions with other dogs, small and large. He has a strong focus on small animals like squirrels, and has a history of chasing cats. We would recommend a home without cats. He is potty trained, activity motivated, and is high energy! Possible running buddy, anyone?To meet me, please make an appointment with our adoption staff by calling, 916-875-2287. The appointment phone lines are open Tuesday-Sunday from 9:30am to 3:30pm. (closed Monday and holidays). Be prepared to give the shelter representative my animal ID number. The phones get busy, so if you don’t get through right away, keep trying. We’re working hard to provide each potential adopter excellent customer service!
