*** Please note that we are NOT accepting applications for the dogs listed as Coming Soon. These dogs have either yet to arrive or have only just recently arrived. Once their foster families get to know them a little better, a detailed bio outlining their personality and describing their ideal home will be posted and we will then begin accepting applications for them. ***
Chewy thinks a stranger is just a friend he hasn’t met yet, and he loves to greet everyone—human and canine—with a smile and a wagging tail! Chewy has even met some older children and was very friendly. This playful guy has two main priorities: give affection (especially kisses) and receive attention.
Chewy loves to nap and go for nice, long “sniffy” walks where he can explore and follow his nose. Although he seems unfamiliar with playing with toys, and he doesn’t like to play alone, he does like to play a game of tug of war or have a little wrestling match with foster parents. Chewy also LOVES bones and would happily chew on a big bone for as long as you’d let him!
When Chewy is out on walks, he’s always very interested in approaching all dogs with an energetic attitude and enjoys making new doggy friends (even if they’re not so interested in meeting him)! However, he’s not a fan of loud noises and will hide behind his fosters’ legs when a loud truck or motorcycle passes.
Chewy would do best in a detached home with someone who can help him work through his separation anxiety. He is very quiet when he has human company, but he will bark nonstop when left alone and becomes quite stressed. He would make a great companion for someone who works from home and likes to include their dog in their adventures outside of the home as much as possible.
Chewy makes everyone feel like they’ve met him before because he’s super approachable and not at all shy about asking for hugs and butt scratches. If you’re looking to adopt a social butterfly with a side of Velcro dog, please consider adopting Chewy!
