Chinook is a cheerful dog who loves to be with people and is happy to do whatever you want to do. He arrived at Best Friends a little on the 'chubby' side, but he has been working on losing some weight and is otherwise a healthy boy. Chinook was born in 2010 and came to the Sanctuary when his elderly person could no longer care for him. He has done well with all the dogs he's met at the Sanctuary, but he can't live with cats, because he has shown aggression toward them in the past. Because he wants to be with people as much as possible, he will bark quite a bit when he's left alone. This social butterfly is working on his basic training at the Sanctuary while he waits for a person or family of his own.
