Chewy

Chewy
2 years old, 55lbs. male
Deaf but that doesn’t stop him

This sweet boy has special needs and therefore needs a special home. Chewy was adopted out by us as a tiny baby from our Irish Rover litter to a busy family with other dogs, cats, and kids. Unfortunately that life proved too much for Chewy, who deals with a lot of anxiety and fear due to the experiences he’s had in his short life. That fear causes Chewy to be reactive to humans and dogs he doesn’t know. Since coming back into our care, Chewy is making great strides in his calm, quiet, single-human foster home that is seeing awesome success by keeping Chewy on a predictable schedule, offering him plenty of outlets for his intelligence and energy (he’s a wizard at treat puzzles and loves toys) and teaching him ASL. Already house trained, crate trained, and doing well with medication to help address his anxiety, Chewy needs a patient and understanding home with no other pets or kids who will be dedicated to his needs. As a sensitive guy who is a bit scared of the at-times unpredictable world, Chewy deserves unconditional love and understanding and we’re committed to making that happen for him.

*Chewy will also come with the full support of our trainer that he’s been working with to ensure his success with his adoptive family.
