Where are our dachshund lovers? Chester is approximately 6 years old and weighs 13 lbs. Thankfully he was rescued from the shelter and is hopeful he can come to Wisconsin at the end of the month. He is fostered with dogs of all shapes and sizes and does well with everyone. Chester is a lap dog. He is really good at being a lap dog....and he is stealthy too....he just magically appears in your lap. It's his favorite place to be!
