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.

Ginger

1 year old

Chihuahua mix..perhaps with Rat Terrier

Adoption Fee: $300

Hi, my name is Ginger, I’m a Chihuahua mixed with maybe Rat Terrier. I’m just over a year old. My favorite things are jerky treats, long walks, running, playing tuggy rope, going for rides in the car, and snuggling on your lap under a throw while you relax. I sleep in my crate at night snuggled under my blankets, (with a little treat coaching to go in) and I am used to a doggie door to go outside to do my business. You will find that I am very smart, and would love someone to teach me new tricks; and I think I would be great at agility because I have a lot of energy. I have plenty of experience with older female kids, but little kids would not be a good fit. I have lived with an older dog and cats, but would love to be the only dog, or with one more my age. It takes me a little time to trust people, but I will love you, and make you laugh if you make me a part of your family.
Molly
9 years
Pomeranian mix

Molly

9 years

Pomeranian mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Molly is a very sweet 9 year old Pom mix. She gets a long with everybody, cats, dogs of all sizes, and people of all ages. She needs to be rehomed because her owner had to go to a nursing home. Molly rides well in a car, knows "sit" and "come", and can walk well on a loose leash. She is housetrained, crate trained and enjoys walks...short ones right now because she needs to loose a lot of weight. We're working on that.
Gates
4 years old
German Shepherd/Lab

Gates

4 years old

German Shepherd/Lab

Adoption Fee: $250

Gates is a 4 year old German Shepherd/lab mix. He is a bit of a fearful dog and takes time to trust new people...meanwhile he tries to physically avoid them. Gates gets along with other dogs and has lived with cats and children. He's sweet, not at all aggressive. He has done well being left alone in his previous owners house, but had separation issues at his former foster home. At this point Gates needs a foster home that can help him with his fear and separation issues--even better, a forever home that can do the same. Once Gates gets past these challenges he will be a great companion. (He would be happy to sleep on your bed...even share your pillow.)
Sweetie
2-3 yrs.
Mixed

Sweetie

2-3 yrs.

Mixed

Adoption Fee: $250

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. Her 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 and no cats. 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.
Rusty
2 years
Labradoodle

Rusty

2 years

Labradoodle

Adoption Fee: $300

Rusty is a friendly 2 year old labradoodle weighing 60lbs. He loves people and dogs; he barks through the fence at the neighbors cats, but that's all we know about his relationship with cats. Rusty is just a happy go lucky guy that loves loves loves playing fetch with a ball. He knows all the basic commands, but needs more leash training because he pulls on leash. He's crate trained and loves car rides. Rusty needs a fenced yard, (not invisible fence) and daily exercise. We think he'd make a great running partner. Rusty does shed, so is probably not hypoallergenic, but he's also easy to groom.
Biscuit
3 years
Labradoodle

Biscuit

3 years

Labradoodle

Adoption Fee: $300

Biscuit is a sweet lively 3 year old guy. He loves people of all ages, knows all the basic commands and enjoys car rides. He weighs 45 pounds. This boy loves to cuddle and prefers people over dogs. He needs a fenced yard (not invisible fence) and a little more leash training. Biscuit has hair that grows like a poodle's hair, so he needs a hair cut every so often, and brushing to prevent mats.
