Most recently, Chestnut is one of our long-term residents at the Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center. She is a senior girl at 9 years old, but you wouldn’t believe that when she runs after a tennis ball. She likes to be the only animal in the house, but enjoys kids — especially when they throw her favorite toy for her to fetch! At the end of a long day of playing, her favorite thing is to snuggle and give kisses.

Chestnut was a hard dog to find a home for because she is older but still very spunky and has a dislike for cats. She was adopted twice and came back due to the families not being able to take care of Chestnut’s needs. She has finally found her perfect family with three kids to run with and no other animals to take her attention.
