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.

Sweetie
2-3 yrs.
Mixed

Sweetie

2-3 yrs.

Mixed

Adoption Fee: $250

Sweetie's name fits her as she is the mildest mannered, gentle and most well behaved dog. She is probably 2-3 yrs old, and a mixed breed...we think she may have Chesapeake Retriever in her. Sweetie knows basic commands, sit, down, shake, stay and walks well on leash. She loves to ride in cars. She will sit quietly while you stroke her head and loves to be brushed. Sweetie will do best in a home with adults only. She weighed in at 61 lbs on her last vet visit. And while she’ll do best with a fenced yard (not invisible fence) a fenced yard isn't required if she will be getting daily exercise. Sweetie came to CHEW Dog Rescue as a pregnant stray. After finding all 9 of her pups their forever homes it is Sweetie's turn.

Terrier Mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Katy had a rough start in life but is looking to become a loyal companion. She is approximately 32 lbs. Katy is timid and shy but slowly warms up to people. She is very playful and gets along great with other dogs. She is a bit prey-driven so NO CATS. Katy will need a fenced yard and someone who will keep her busy! She currently lives with two other dogs and is having a blast playing tug-o-war and chase! She does very well in a crate and is house trained. With lots of love and patience, Katy will make a wonderful companion!
Max

Golden Retriever/hound mix

Max

2 years

Golden Retriever/hound mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Max is a 2 year old Golden Retriever/hound mix. He’s a smart and very friendly boy that gets along with other dogs and all kinds of people. He’s rambunctious, so he’s probably not the right dog for a family with very young children. Max lives with a cat, but often annoys her by chasing her around the house. He needs to be rehomed because his former family does not have a fenced yard so he’s being tethered when he is outside…they know he needs more. Max also needs a foster home after the first week of September. Max has just come into our rescue so we will be updating this posting as we learn more about him.
Dex

3/4 Lab, 1/4 Boxer

Dex

2 years

3/4 Lab, 1/4 Boxer

Adoption Fee: $250

Dex is a 2 year old 3/4 lab/1/4 boxer mix. He weighs about 80 pounds. Because of a family member’s allergies he has been an entirely outdoor dog since he was 5 months old. He’s been good with other dogs—never met a cat—and great with the family’s little children. He would love to be an indoor dog again—he enjoys being around people all the time. Dex likes playing in water, car rides, and will chase after anything you throw and will sometimes even bring it back to you. He LOVES any and all attention and is always SO happy. He eagerly greets every person/child/animal that comes to his house with a happy, wagging tail. Because Dex needs a fenced yard (not invisible fence) and someone who has time to give him the exercise he needs, his family has decided to rehome him—and want him to enjoy the companionship of being an indoor member of a family.

Lokee - Adoption Pending

6 months

Pug

Adoption Fee: $400

Lokee is a 6 month old puppy who loves life and a great romp in the yard. He likes to be with his people and loves the dog park ! He is content to lay next to you on the couch and watch some tv but is young and quite active so needs a fenced yard and someone who is home most of the time. He rides well in the car and walks well on leash. He's crate trained and 99% potty trained. He's up to date on all vaccinations, neutered and microchipped. Lokee's mom passed away so now he needs a new mommy or daddy.
Goose
1-2 years
Lab mix

Goose

1-2 years

Lab mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Meet Goose, a fun loving young lab mix between 1 and 2 years old who's ready to explore the world with you! He enjoys fetch, tug of war, and cuddling; he's good with most dogs and respectful kids! He tends to chase small fast moving critters so cats are probably not a good fit for him. He is eager to please and loves praise so learns very quickly. He has learned to sit with verbal and hand commands he also walks very well on a loose lead. He would be extremely happy to share the bed with you, but will settle on his own bed if you say “no”. Goose loves to go out and about in the car almost as much as lying around watching tv with his family. But don't let that trick you…he is young and definitely needs some good old fashion exercise; he would make an excellent jogging, walking or hiking partner. Goose is eager to please and ready to learn. As long as he's with his family, he's happy. Goose needs a fully fenced yard (not invisible fence) with room to run and catch a ball!
Calli

Lab mix

Calli

4 years old

Lab mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Calli is a sweet 4 year old lab mix. She's lead a pretty sheltered life so she's nervous when meeting new people, but in time learns to trust. Calli is spayed, house trained and will be a great companion for someone or some family. She needs a fenced yard (not invisible fence) and will do best in a home where she doesn't have to spend long hours alone. Calli gets along with other dogs and her former owner says she's good with kids and cats as well.
Ginger
1 year old
Chihuahua mix

Ginger

1 year old

Chihuahua mix

Adoption Fee: $300

Ginger is a sweet and playful 1-1.5 year old Chihuahua mix. Some of her favorite things to do are go on car rides, play fetch, cuddle, and burrow under any blanket she can find. She isn't one to complain, and will go anywhere with you. She can be a little timid at first, but it doesn't take her long to warm up. Once she gets comfortable with you, you will really see her beautiful personality come to the surface. Ginger is a very smart dog, and for this reason she will sometimes test her boundaries. She needs someone who will love her and play with her but can also be someone she listens to and respects. Since Ginger has had tendencies to be territorial over her owners, we are looking for owners who will not allow her on the couch, bed, or on their laps except for rare occasions. We have found that she thrives best in life when she is treated like a bigger dog, rather than a small dog. Her foster mom has a 50 pound boxer mix, whom Ginger loves to play with. Her foster mom has the same rules set for her 50 pound dog that she does for Ginger. She does great with cats, and is also kennel trained.. When Ginger is in a home with structure she thrives to her fullest potential and is a perfect dog, all around.
