Age: Young
Color: Black
Sex: Male

Chex is extremely shy, but each day he is slowly coming out of his shell and beginning to trust his caregivers. He does well with other dogs, and his doggie roommate is helping him to gain confidence around people. Chex seems to enjoy pets from people he is comfortable with. He has been walking with Dogtown volunteers to help improve his social skills, and he is doing well. Chex sticks close to his roommate at the start of the walk, but as he gets comfortable, he will pull ahead to lead the way. He likes his treats and has a good appetite. Born in 2018, Chex came to Best Friends through local animal control. At Dogtown, Chex is learning that there are other fun things to do besides digging in his yard. Once he feels comfortable enough, he'll be able to go on walks and outings with volunteers without his doggie friend. Although this sweet pup is making progress in trusting people, he will need an understanding person or family to show him that he is safe. Once he gains confidence, he will make a wonderful companion.
