07/08/2016 WEB MEMO
A volunteer writes: Chubby is one playful pup!!! He enjoyed a game of fetch with me and the other volunteer and was eager to demonstrate how he sits and gives paw!!!! Chubby is most likely housebroken, as he went potty as soon as we exited the building. Chubby took our treats gently and enjoyed playing with us. I think Chubby is an all around great dog. If you’re interested in adopting Chubby please come to the Care Center and meet him.
