Chewy At the Front Door

Hi! My name is Chewbarka but my foster family calls me Chewy. I am a handsome 8 year old who was very scared and nervous when first coming to the rescue.  Thanks to my foster family, I have overcome a lot and am ready for my forever home. 

Here are a few things about me …

I am a Velcro dog; I just want to be wherever you are.

If you work from home, I make an excellent office mate. 

I like to window watch.

I love taking walks with you.

I can sit nicely and gently takes treats.

I prefer to be your one and only so I can get all the attention!  

I need a slow introduction when meeting new dogs. Once I know they are ok, I'm good. I do better with other dogs who are chill and not high energy.  

I am working on my leash manners, but can get excited and pull when I find a new scent.

I don't play with toys much but do appreciate a good raw soup bone to gnaw on.

Even though I don't chew on toys, I sometimes have cravings to chew on magazines, toilet rolls and anything you have in the office waste basket [mostly paper].

I am house trained and do not like to be crated. I have proven to my foster family that I can be trusted when they are away. 

And I can sleep quietly through the night and hope I can sleep in the same room as you on the floor. 

I don't ask for much, I just want you to be my person.
