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.

Please click on the dog's picture to learn more about them.

Reva (on hold until completion of allergy treatment)

Golden Retriever mix (we think)

Adoption Fee: $250

Reva is a Golden Retriever mix girl (we think), weighing about 50lbs. She goes to work with her foster mom at a doggy daycare and does great with the dogs there. She’s good with cats and puppies too as long as they give her space. And she’s good with older respectful kids. She’s potty trained and is safe being left alone loose in the house. Reva loves to cuddle and is happy doing whatever you are doing; she likes car rides, hiking, going the beach, etc. She needs a person or family that, in a firm but kind manner, makes sure she learns what behavior they want. She is a very sweet girl with a huge heart; she will make someone very happy. Reva does have some skin allergies that are likely food-related. We are working to learn what she is allergic to so her new family will know what foods she can have and what to avoid. Reva needs a home with a fenced yard (not an invisible fence).

Poodle Mix

Adoption Fee: $300

Sailor is an adorable little poodle mix, about 1-2 years old and weighs about 17 lbs. He's lively and intelligent, likes other dogs, rides well in the car and loves his walks. He is still working a bit on walking on the leash. He loves to play with his toys but is also affectionate and willing to cuddle once you show him you are trustworthy. Sailor would do well with an adult-only home with experienced dog owners.

Chihuahua/minpin mix

Adoption Fee: 300

Meet Penny. She's a sweet cuddler, active player, and just a delightful little girl. She is a 10 pound, 3-year-old chihuahua with lots of love to give. She is affectionate, and wants to be nearby. As an added bonus, she doesn't shed a bit. In her free time, she enjoys shaking her toys silly, gnawing on bully sticks, protecting her home from the mailman, and showering her humans with love. She is medium-energy, so enjoys both snoozing AND hopping around town. Penny would do best in a home without very young children and would love to have a fenced yard to freely run around in. Meet her soon!

Chihuahua

Buster

3-4 years

Chihuahua

Adoption Fee: $300

Buster is a 3-4 year old young man who is friendly and loves to snuggle with you. He is good with other dogs and loves car rides. He is low to medium energy and therefore would make a great companion for the home and a good buddy for movie night. Of course, a daily walk is good for any dog and he likes to take short walks. He recently had a dental exam & cleaning. If in a home with children, they should be 10 or older.
Boo

Double Dapple Dachshund

Boo

5 years

Double Dapple Dachshund

Adoption Fee: $400

This is Boo...a very unique double dapple Dachshund we think. We think he is about five years old and weighs 18 lbs.  He has had a skin issue that change to some higher quality food has resolved.  Boo has a wonderful personality that is quietly dignified, yet warm and adventurous.  Please research the breed before applying!  Dachshunds typically need a strong leadership personality in their person, otherwise they sometimes fill the power vacuum themselves.  We are looking for a family with no children or older, respectful children.

Yorkie

Dexter

6 years

Yorkie

Adoption Fee: $250

This is Dexter, a 6 year old Yorkie who loves to cuddle with his human/s. He can be a little bossy around other dogs, but enjoys playing with them....and he gets along with cats. Dexter loves to go for walks and rides well in the car. He’s potty trained and is not destructive when left alone in the house. Dexter needs a fairly quiet home and would do best with a fenced yard. He weighs 18 pounds which is large for a Yorkie, but he's fit and not overweight.

Webster - Adoption Pending

18 months

Terrier Mix

Adoption Fee: $300

Webster is an 18 month old gentle guy with a medium energy level. He is pretty mellow indoors but because he's young he still occasionally gets the 'zoomies'. He loves playing with other dogs and is outgoing and friendly with people (though not yet exposed to children). He is also house trained and good with cats. Likes his crate and sleeps through the night without a peep! Very food motivated and therefore seems very trainable.

Yanni plays well with other dogs. He weighs 14 pounds, is neutered, microchipped, and up to date on his vaccinations. Yanni would make someone a great family and companion dog.

BONNIE is a super sweet and cuddly 6 month old Schnauzer mix puppy. She plays extremely well with other dogs. She loves to play catch and always brings the ball back so you can throw it again. She's smart and observant, so it never takes her long to catch on. She is learning basic manners such as sit and stay. Bonnie is the type of dog that would love to be your constant companion and best friend. She weighs about 11 pounds, is potty trained, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.

Beagle (maybe mix)

Latte

9 years

Beagle (maybe mix)

Adoption Fee: $250

Latte is an absolutely sweet Beagle, maybe purebred, maybe mix. She's 9 years old and gets along well with other dogs and maybe even cats if they don't run. She's just a very easy, well-behaved sweet companion, quiet except to alert if someone knocks on the door. She's potty trained and is fine left free in the house. She would do best in a home where she doesn't have to be left alone for a 40 hour work week, and we think she would like the company of another dog. Latte is good with all kinds of people.
