Chester3 Carlisle and Dewey (Dewees Island)

Pulled: Friday November 4, 2011 from Scotland County Humane Society

Rescue commitment for Carlisle: November 20th, 2011 by Dog World Rescue

Adoption commitment for Dewey: November 20th, 2011 by Kerri’s friend, Nina. Kerri works for Middle Mutts!

Meet Chester Carlisle, a 10 month old Corgi/Pomeranian mix. Carlisle is up-to-date on vaccinations and neutered. And, yes, he looks very much like a fox. And, yes, that’s how I plan to pass him off if any animal control officers come knocking on my door.

Carlisle is a friendly playful guy, who plays a mean game of fetch. He’s smart too. Foxy smart. When I stopped at my parents’ house on the way back to Columbia, I put the new fosters in the one area of fenced in yard — the family cemetery. Mom had given me strict instructions NOT to come home with any additional fosters, so I thought I’d just leave them, unseen, in the family cemetery until I was ready to go. I drove into my parents’ garage with an empty car.

All was well, until we saw Carlisle running around the front yard. Apparently, he had jumped onto a bench and then over the fence. He wasn’t interested in running off, though. He was interested in running into the nice, heated house.

Mom: “What’s that?”

Me: “I don’t know. It looks like a fox.”

Mom: “How many did you get?”

Busted. SIGH.

Ah well. We think the name Carlisle fits him perfectly. It’s a fancy name, for a fancy fox of a guy, with a curly tail.

And meet Chester Dewey, a 3 year old Pekingese/Border Terrier mix. Dewey is up-to-date on vaccinations and neutered. And, yes, he has a bit of an under-bite, which makes his smile a little crooked.

But, as you can see from the close-up, he’s still an adorable little guy. And I don’t know his story, but I’m sure he was cared for at some point. He seems completely trained. He walks well on a leash and sits on command. And he hasn’t had a potty accident yet, though past experience has taught me never to promise that an animal is house-trained. See #3 of the “Top Ten Memorable Mishaps” blog post for details.

He also plays a mean game of fetch.

If you’d be interested in adopting or fostering Carlisle and/or Dewey, send me a message!
