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.

Adoptable Dogs

Cleo
8 months old
Chihuahua

Cleo

8 months old

Chihuahua

Adoption Fee: $300

Cleo is a sweet 8 month old female who loves to cuddle and race around a yard. She's new to CHEW and we will update this as we learn more about her.
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. 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. With time, Sweetie becomes more comfortable and less reactive around cats.
Max - ADOPTION PENDING
2 years
Golden Retriever/hound mix

Max - ADOPTION PENDING

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.
Calli
4 years old
Lab mix

Calli

4 years old

Lab mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Calli is a beautiful and sweet four year old lab mix weighing about 70 lbs. She is cautious around new people, but very affectionate once she gains trust. Calli walks well on a loose lead, is house trained, and rides well in the car. She knows "sit" and "lay down" and is working on "shake" and "roll over". She really enjoys a walk, but too much stimulus is stressful for her (she's working on it and has made good progress in her foster home). She has gotten along fine with another adult female dog in the home. Her previous owners report she had no issues with cats or children. She would like to sleep on your bed, but will settle for her own bed near yours. 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.
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.

Siberian Husky mix

Mako

5 Years

Siberian Husky mix

Adoption Fee: $250

Mako is a 5 year old Siberian Husky mix with a beautiful personality and coloring. He gets along with other dogs and has been great with the children he's met. He's quite the gentleman with his people...a little shy at first with strangers, but not a bit aggressive. He needs a home that has the time and commitment to work through some separation anxiety issues he has....he's so worth it.

Shih Tzu

Adoption Fee: $250

My name is Gizmo. I am a beautiful tri colored Lhasa Apsa looking for a quiet, adult only home. I do fine with cats and wouldn't mind another small dog. What I'd really like is someone who has lots of time to help me learn to trust. I can be a little aloof until I get to know people but, once I know you, I like to rub my head on you. It's my way of saying I like you!

Shadow

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.
