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.

Reva

2 1/2

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

Sailor

1-2 years

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 and potty training. 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.
Calli

Calli

1 1/2 years

Doberman/Collie mix

Adoption Fee: 250

Calli is an athletic, fun-loving, and affectionate mixed breed girl who is about 1 1/2 years old. She loves to run and play in the yard with her foster mom’s dog, and to jump and chase the ball. She is the ideal dog for someone who loves to be outdoors, has older children or is interested in dog agility. Her heart is full of love and affection for people, especially her people. She is intelligent and open to training. She will cuddle on your lap if you want her to or will seek out your affection in other ways. She settles down nicely but needs daily exercise. She is a lovely dog. She would do well in a home with another dog about her size to play with and a fenced yard (no invisible fence) preferably 6 feet tall. Calli is, spayed, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped.
Crouton - Adoption Pending

Terrier Mix

Crouton - Adoption Pending

3 years old

Terrier Mix

Adoption Fee: $300

Crouton is a 3 y/o terrier mix that likes car rides and playing fetch. He settles down in and outside of his kennel while in the car. He likes to go for walks and is getting better at not pulling. The ideal forever home would be with folks who like to get out and about, like to take long walks or hikes, or want a jogging companion. Crouton is very inquisitive and likes to learn new things so he would probably do well at doggie sports or classes. He is medium energy so can also relax with his people after some exercise. He can be very sweet and loving but doesn't need to be with his person every minute. He would do best with children over 10 years old.

Penny

3 years

Chihuahua

Adoption Fee: 300

Are your arms getting a little jiggly? Let Penny help you out! A few minutes a day of tug-o-war with this small-sized personal trainer will fix that up in a jiffy! She's also a motivational walking machine! Penny 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!
Buster
3-4 years
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.
