  • King you, King me, King everyone because no one will be anything but a winner after meeting, falling in love with and taking Checkers home forever. Aptly named, Checkers is super fun and engaging but quiet and totally NOT into puppy craziness, though we suspect he has a little of that mixed in with his old soul. Checkers is about 5 months old and weighs about 30ish lbs and will likely be about 50-60 or so when he is full grown. Everything about Checkers is both fun and soft. He arrived, clearly not having a lot of confidence in himself but has made a load of friends at the farm, has become far more comfortable in his own skin and might just be the best puppy you could ever adopt. You ask why? Well, he is a total puppy and lap dog but is an old soul who does not need crazy exercise and engagement to be happy. He wanders around both alone and with others at the farm. He has shown himself to be pretty awesome in his crate and never complains or makes a lot of noise. He has an adorable brindle coat and is some mix perhaps between lab, hound and clearly something brindle. He would do wonderfully in a home with another dog and would also love some training activities and ways to build confidence to be the man he was totally made to be. He has been kind with both young and old and would easy melt right into your heart and family. King you and Checkers is yours!
