Good with dogs,
Needs special attention,
Meet Chewbacca, also known as Chewie! This adorable three-year-old Boxer Mix is truly one of a kind, and he's ready to steal your heart with his charm and unique appearance. You'll notice right away that he was born with a cleft palate which gives him his uniqe grin. Chewie also has no ear canals, so he is mostly deaf, but that doesn't slow him down one bit - he's a big ball of energy always eager to play and have fun! With the help of a professional trainer, Chewie is learning to communicate and has already mastered his basic commands and is almost house-trained. Chewie absolutely adores bones, toys, and treats, but his biggest passion is playing with other dogs. He's made so many friends during his time at Big Hair Pet Care, where he loves running around and burning off all that endless energy. Sometimes, he can be a bit clumsy and accidentally greet his doggy pals with a friendly paw to the face, so he'd do best in a home without small animals or young children. He's a strong guy - almost a mini horse - and while he is professionally trained, he'll need a strong owner. This lovable goofball is quite the talker too! He loves to yodel his excitement, so having a home with plenty of space for him to express himself would be ideal. After an exciting day of play, Chewie also enjoys relaxing on the couch and unwinding with his favorite humans. He's looking for an adoptive family that has the perfect blend of patience and opportunities for exercise to help him adjust to his new home and keep up with his playful nature. If you're considering welcoming Chewie into your family, we'll arrange a foster period to ensure he's the perfect fit for your household. To give Chewie the best start in his new home, we're including four free in-home training sessions to help him become the best pup he can be. Chewbacca is currently being boarded in Massachusetts, and thanks to a generous volunteer sponsor, his adoption fee has been waived! Additionally, there's a $2,500 donation fund available to approved adopters for Chewie's transport if needed and ongoing training, food, and future medical care. So, if you're ready to open your heart and home to this special boy, apply to adopt Chewie today and get ready for a lifetime of love, laughter, and unforgettable moments together! To adopt this animal, please visit https://www.louieslegacy.org/adopt All of our animals come spayed or neutered, fully up to date on vaccinations, including rabies (if age appropriate) and Bordetella, are microchipped, heartworm negative, current on flea/tick and heartworm prevention, dewormed, and treated for any ailments found upon veterinary examination. The adoption fee covers a portion of these services, and makes it possible for us to continue rescuing animals. For more information on the adoption fees and the adoption process, please complete our adoption application here: https://www.louieslegacy.org/adopt - an application allows us to get to know your family better so we can assess whether the animal you are interested in is a good match for your home. An application does not obligate you to adopt. Please understand that due to the volume of applications some animals receive, we are unable to contact all applicants. If your application is considered a good fit for the animal you are interested in, or even a different pet, a volunteer will give you a call as soon as possible. We are a foster based rescue and do not have a shelter location where animals can be seen during the week. Please see our Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/LouiesLegacy for our weekly adoption album if you are interested in meeting an animal in person. Not all animals attend every adoption event, please check our Facebook page for animal event times and locations before you make a trip to meet a specific animal.
