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.

Chuckles
1 1/2 Years Old
Poodle/terrier mix

Chuckles

1 1/2 Years Old

Poodle/terrier mix

Adoption Fee: $300

Chuckles is a 1 1/2 yr old male Terrier mix. He is friendly and loving to all he comes into contact with whether human or dog. He has not been around a cat since being in his foster home but I think he would be fine. His current foster family has 3 large breed dogs whom he loves to play with. He is crate trained and that's where he sleeps at night. He knows sit, (down is not something he thinks he needs to learn since he's so low to the ground already!), leave it, wait, stay, come and we're working on loose leash walking. He loves to dance for his treats, enjoys fetching and has braved the teeter-totter for large dogs all by himself. He's fearless! He likes to explore both at the dog park and in the yard at his foster home. Chuckles needs a securely fenced yard (not invisible fence). Chuckles was found severely matted, so he was shaved. He’s likely to grow a nice curly white coat in time. We think he’s possibly terrier mixed with poodle or maltese.

Kyra - Adoption Pending

1 year old

Boxer mix?

Adoption Fee: $250

I'm Kyra, a young (9 mo - 1 yr) old boxer mix with unlimited to love and affection to bestow on my new owner. I am very laid back when indoors but very exuberant and playful when in my yard. I need a large, fenced backyard where I can chase balls and frisbees. I get along well with other animals and children. I weigh about 50 lbs. I love to ride in the car and go for walks. I know a few basic commands (like sit and down) and am working on the sit/stay command and walking like a lady while on my leash. I love attention and daily exercise.
Coco - Adoption Pending

Puggle (pub/beagle)

Coco - Adoption Pending

1-2 years old

Puggle (pub/beagle)

Adoption Fee: $300

Coco is an absolute love bug. She is most content curled up on the couch next to her foster mom and dad. She loves having her chest and tummy rubbed, and rolls over on her back to receive such loves any time she can. She is not interested in our cat and gets along well with our other dog. She is still learning how to walk on a leash and is getting better with the use of a harness. We are working on potty training and she does well in her kennel. She is treat motivated and wants to please. At the dog park she enjoys playing with other dogs but can be intimidated by the larger ones. She will come to her name at the dog park, but can get easily distracted by other things such as dogs and toys. She would do best with a family who can spend time with her and give her plenty of attention.

Pomeranian

Suzie

6 years old

Pomeranian

Adoption Fee: $250

Suzie is a pretty 6 year old Pomeranian girl. She's a shy girl, but gets used to new people in time. We think she'll do best in a home without young children.
Milo

Great Pyrenees/Husky/Samoyed

Milo

2 1/2 - 3 years old

Great Pyrenees/Husky/Samoyed

Adoption Fee: $250

Hi there. My name is Milo. I’m a snuggly sweet boy. My favorite thing to do is cozy up with my human on the couch. The closer I am the happier I am. And although I had almost no training in my past “home”, I am really a good boy. I walk well on leash, know “sit” and am learning other things that will make me an even more wonderful family member. I’m potty trained and ride nicely in the car. But I must admit, I’m not good with cats and that might mean I’m not good with other small animals. I need a home with a fenced yard to go potty and play in…but I prefer to be in the house with my people. I weight about 75 lbs so I'm not really big, but definitely not small...and I'm handsome.
Junior
1 year old
Pug mix

Junior

1 year old

Pug mix

Adoption Fee: $300

Junior is an adorable 14 month old guy with such an unusual and cute, cute look. He is a Pug mix, much larger than a Pug at 40 pounds. Junior is gentle and a perfect gentleman, sweet with children and people in general; and he’s not the least big destructive. He has a big bark, but stops when he’s asked. He does best with a companion, two or four legged. Junior is potty trained, neutered, up to date on vaccinations and microchipped. You really must meet Junior...he’s a prince of a canine.
