Chewy was found on the streets by one of our friends. She patiently tried catching him for many days until finally, success! Chewy was all skin and bones, hungry and showed signs of having been in some scuffles. ART took him in and over the next few months, first worked on putting some weight on him. He quickly got to a healthy weight of almost 30lbs. He is neutered, microchipped and upto date on all his shots. He is very friendly and loves his people and furry siblings alike. While he is gentle, but also playful. He does great with kids, though best to always be supervised with young ones as he is also a young one who loves to play. He is crate-trained but doesn't really like it much. He gets anxious but does great left free in the house too. He quickly learned to sit, and is very trainable. He wants to make his people happy. He is friendly around new people and learning to trust. At first, while he liked to be petted, he was suspicious if you got your face close to him for kisses. He has since learned that it is awesome to be loved on and cuddle and allows you to give him kisses, hugged and cuddled. He loves to play and run in the yard, but just as happy being a couch potato. He loves going on walks and is just a happy sweet boy. The little guy seems to have been through a bit of a rough time on the streets, and we are glad he is much healthier and happier now. All he needs now is a loving new family that will love him, care for him and spoil him rotten!
