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.

Miniature Pinscher mix

Adoption Fee: $250

My name is Shadow. I am a Miniature Pinscher mix and am looking for a lap to snuggle in. I am very sensitive and would prefer an adult only home with maybe one other dog. I do fine with cats but I tend to chase chickens. I very much want a person of my very own who has time to cuddle with me and take me for walks. I like toys and spend a fair amount of time under my favorite blanket.

Indie - Adoption Pending

8 months

Minpin/Chihuahua mix

Adoption Fee: $300

Meet Indie, an 8 month old Miniature Pinscher / Chihuahua mix who simply loves life! Indie is affectionate, happy, athletic, and full of bouncy puppy energy! He weighs approximately 8 lbs. (and may continue to grow a little), is black in color, and has lovely long legs and a long tail! Indie enjoys taking long walks, car rides, playing with other medium to small sized dogs, playing with his toys, and cuddling with you on the sofa with a warm blanket. He is bright, highly food motivated, and easy to train! He already knows how to sit, lay down, come, sit-up, and is kennel trained and 99% potty trained. Because he is still so young, he would benefit from having a new family that has time to spend with him and keep him on a regular potty schedule while he continues to grow. His coat is smooth, short, and silky and requires little grooming. In cooler weather he will need to wear a sweater outside to keep him warm. Indie will do best in a home without pre-school children.
