Hey guys...my name is Chewy and you know what they say about Dynomite?! It comes in small packages...just like all 6 pounds of me!!
They say I'm an old fart, but I say who's counting!! They say I'm 12 or 13 and I say that's better than 80 or 90! Hmph...the nerve. Let me tell you a little about me. I used to live in Wisconsin and then my owner, who didn't take the best care of me, posted me for free on Craigslist. Can you imagine me...on Craigslist. Oh the nerve!! Some lady named Karen came and saved me before I ended up as lunchmeat. She said I was in really bad shape, but I was so happy to be away from my crappy owner that I was jumping for joy...so much so that I knock a canine tooth out when I jumped off the couch. It didn't hurt, but Miss Karen was worried because it left a hole straight into my nasal cavity. She then told me she knew what she had to do...then told me the story of rescue.
I then made my way to Pawsitively Pom Rescue in PA and they knew what to do to get me better. It took a really long time since I was in such bad shape. After I was healthy enough to have surgery, they took me to a special dentist. He pulled all my teeth and fixed not 1, but 2 holes in my mouth. Then these people took my manhood! Hmph...really?! Well, I didn't miss them too much, but I sure do miss my teeth! See, I'm feisty and I like to make sure all other animals know that I own everything in the house. I will tell them about themselves if they try to so much as touch a toy, lay on my loveseat, or get to the treats before me. I also like to eat my food, then I will eat other dogs' food, then I will pee on whatever is left...HaHaha! They say I am housebroken, but I also like to let the other dogs know that I own everything in the house by marking my territory. My foster mama doesn't worry about the damage my toothless butt will do, but she always has one eye on how the other dogs will react. So, she says I need a home without any other animals. I also am the biggest lover you will find this side of California!! I will be your best friend and love you til the cows come home. So my foster mama says I should be adopted by someone who is home more than not.
That's who I am in a nutshell, now let's discuss my medical history. As I said, I have no teeth so you don't have to worry about dental bills. I have a grade 2 of 6 heart murmur, but my age will likely catch up to me before my heart ever does. I also have Alopecia, or black skin disease, where I'm missing A LOT of hair on my torso. My foster mama says you should be prepared to provide Levicrine (thyroid meds for my hypothyroidism) and buy me lots of warm clothes to keep my butt warm in the winter. I say at least I have more hair than I did because most men my age are losing theirs! Hmph...some people! My biggest problem has been chronic bronchitis, collapsing trachea, and lung disease with two pulmonary bullae. Those are air filled sacs in my lungs, which will likely never amount to anything. I do, however, have the notorious Pommy cough. So my foster mama says you should be prepared to keep stock in Torbutrol (cough med), Theophylline (bronchodilator), and a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement to help strengthen the cartilage in my trachea. She also gives me Zyrtec, although I'm not sure it really does anything. She said I need to live in a clean home with an air purifier(s) and without any carpet. She knows I like to rub my nose in the carpet from one end of the house to the other after a walk and it seriously aggravates my lung condition. I say she's just a worry wart, but she does know what's best.
I've been in rescue for a year, but that's because my foster mama couldn't give me up after my first adoption failed. She said I liked the carpet too much. I say...what's an old man to do for fun! Hmph...I'm not an old, old fart...I could live for years!!! But I know my foster mama loves me and she wants to have someone who has more time to spoil me...more than I already am of course. So, she also says, that I have to go to a home in the southcentral PA area.
Do you need a baby to love and spoil...albeit a feisty, funny one?? Then what are you waiting for??? My adoption fee is $250 ($150 for senior citizens 65+) and includes my neuter, dental, vaccinations, heartworm/lyme and fecal tests, and microchip. Apply at PawsitivelyPom.rescuegroups.org. Ask for me....Chewy....Chewy for President I say!!!
