Paddington's younger brother Checkers has officially joined Dutch Haven! Checkers is an AKC Miniature Poodle and is the newest member of our family-friends Zack and Laura’s home. He likes you to believe he’s bashful, but don’t be fooled, he is adventurous and loves affectionate attention. He also loves his older brother, Mitty, a rescue Brittney Spaniel. They have quickly become inseparable and do everything together. They sleep in the same bed and love going for rides in the truck together. (Checkers claims the best seat!) So long as his big brother Mitty is there, Checkers loves taking walks, dashing through fall leaves, and lounging by the fireplace. Checkers is a Canine Good Citizen (AKC CGC) and has also earned his AKC Community Canine award.
