Happy Tails


(a.k.a. Jester)
ADOPTED November 2000
RIP June 2003

Found his forever home in Gloucester, VA!

Jester, Jester, Jester born on April Fool's Day and still playing tricks on everyone!  Jester came to S.H.I.N.E. via a rescue transport gone "awry" which left him living in a barn stall where he was really not wanted. Barb, Jester's savior, was actively trying to find another rescue placement for Jester but was not having any luck, until S.H.I.N.E. called to offer any assistance possible and when the situation at the "farm" got "sticky" Barb didn't hesitate and brought Jester to S.H.I.N.E. immediately.  Unknown to anyone at the time, Jester was diagnosed with heartworms. Being a VERY active, anxious dog, the standard treatment for heartworms(which is EXTREMELY expensive by the way), was too risky so S.H.I.N.E. and their vet decided to go with a more 'non-traditional' treatment and were wildly successful, as after less than a year in his new home as Chester, instead of Jester, he tested negative! Chester loves his new family, especially his new Dad to pieces. They are best buddies and he insists on being a bed hog!

Happy Tails Chester!


Deceased June 2003: such a sudden loss, we miss you Chessie!
