Dog Rescue

CHEW sets out to rescue abandoned dogs, dogs slated for euthanasia due to shelter space limitations, and other dogs in need. We are currently working to find additional foster homes and acquire funding for veterinary care and other essential dog services. We host adoption outreach events at Sophie's Touch from 1 p.m. – 4 p.m. on the first Sunday of each month, at Mud Bay from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m. on the second Friday and Saturday of each month and Petco from 4 p.m. - 7 p.m. on the fourth Friday of each month. All adoption events are located in Gig Harbor at this time.

I know a few basic commands (like sit and down) and am working on the sit/stay command and walking like a lady while on my leash. I love attention and daily exercise.

Coco - Adoption Pending

1-2 years old

Puggle (pub/beagle)

Adoption Fee: $300

Coco is an absolute love bug. She is most content curled up on the couch next to her foster mom and dad. She loves having her chest and tummy rubbed, and rolls over on her back to receive such loves any time she can. She is not interested in our cat and gets along well with our other dog. She is still learning how to walk on a leash and is getting better with the use of a harness. We are working on potty training and she does well in her kennel. She is treat motivated and wants to please. At the dog park she enjoys playing with other dogs but can be intimidated by the larger ones. She will come to her name at the dog park, but can get easily distracted by other things such as dogs and toys. She would do best with a family who can spend time with her and give her plenty of attention.

Milo

2 1/2 - 3 years old

Great Pyrenees/Husky/Samoyed

Adoption Fee: $250

Hi there. My name is Milo. I’m a snuggly sweet boy. My favorite thing to do is cozy up with my human on the couch. The closer I am the happier I am. And although I had almost no training in my past “home”, I am really a good boy. I walk well on leash, know “sit” and am learning other things that will make me an even more wonderful family member. I’m potty trained and ride nicely in the car. But I must admit, I’m not good with cats and that might mean I’m not good with other small animals. I need a home with a fenced yard to go potty and play in…but I prefer to be in the house with my people. I weight about 75 lbs so I'm not really big, but definitely not small...and I'm handsome.

Pug mix

Junior

He does best with a companion, two or four legged. Junior is potty trained, neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. You really must meet Junior...he’s a prince of a canine.

Cooper, a Treeing Walker Coonhound, is about 9 months old and taking to his training very well. He loves to cuddle, plays with all dogs nicely, and his personality is engaging, especially with kids. Cooper LOVES kids! Cooper's perfect family would be active, enjoy jogging or other high energy activities, and have kids that would embrace Cooper as a very important member of their family. If we could sum him up in one word, it would have to be: SWEETHEART. Coonhounds are a hunting breed, so Cooper needs a securely fenced yard.
