This adorable face belongs to our man Chewy. He is seven years young and ready to start a whole new adventure. At around 20 pounds, Chewy is just the right size for car rides and traveling. This will be a great chance for him to get out and meet the world that he has missed before. Chewy has been very sheltered in the past but has been very game to try new things here. Having never used a collar or leash before, Chewy has taken to them like a duck to water. There is still lots of energy in this fellow yet so an active home would be the best fit for him. Chewy has not been socialized with young children so tweens and up are recommended for this great little dude.
If Chewy sounds like the right fit for you, please follow the steps below!
