Gimme Shelter: Meet Checkers



Are you looking for a fun new friend? Meet Checkers!

Checkers (A379650) is an 8-year-old dog who came to us as a stray. He is super sweet and friendly, and he can't wait to find a forever home to spend his golden years in. Checkers is very mellow and laid-back. He enjoys attention and he likes to be petted. His ideal home would be one where he can relax and be spoiled with love.
