Chuwy’s Story

History:  Chuwy was given up when his family was moving to an apartment that did not allow dogs. We were told he lived with a child in this home.

About:  Chuwy is very good with other dogs and is currently going to doggy daycare every day with his foster mom to help him lose some much needed weight. On days he does not go to daycare Chuwy is crated; he cries for a few minutes and then settles down for the rest of the day.  He is a medium energy level so he likes going to daycare, but he also is content to stay at home and sleep all day. Chuwy doesn’t seem too interested in toys and playing, but he loves to go for walks and loves to spend time outside – he is always the last dog to come in at his foster home.  (Or sometimes he’ll just stand in the grass and stare at his foster mom while she tries to call him in, hehe.) Chuwy has a silly side and will throw his head around when he barks to get your attention. Chuwy’s foster mom used the following words to describe him: Silly, Loving, Happy-go-lucky, and tolerant.
