Hi my name is Checkers, I was on foster this is what my foster family said about me - Checkers is the sweetest gentlest little man. When he first came to us he was very nervous but his confidence has grown so much in the last couple of months. He loves tummy rubs and rubs in general and will come and headbutt you to let you know it is time for him to be petted. Checkers also likes to speak to us and loves his food. He is never cross or grumpy but I would say a home with teenagers upwards would suit him better as he still gets a bit scared with loud noises and sudden movements. A quiet home where he is safe and gets lots of rubs would suit him down to the ground.
