Adoptable Dog of the Week-Chewy
If you’re looking for a loyal and loving dog, this pretty boy could be your furry soul mate! Our Adoptable Dog of the Week is Chewy, a 2 years old Brussels Griffon mix from East Windsor, New Jersey. This fluffy little fella is neutered and up to date on his vaccinations; he’s also housetrained, leash trained, and gets along with other dogs and older children.
No, Chewy wasn’t working as a teddy bear impersonator when his rescuers found him- this adorable pooch was a stray when he was brought to the shelter.
Despite his poor luck with previous owners, Chewy loves people: so much so that he tends to be a bit of a velcro dog, as in he gets really attached. He’s also a one-owner type of guy, but that doesn’t mean he won’t warm up to other family members if there are any, it’s just that he’ll only recognize one alpha of the pack as his main pawrent.
Speaking of alphas in the pack, it’s important to note that Chewy can be a bit of a control freak. He’s quite bossy and needs an experienced adopter who knows how to assert himself as the pack leader to really gain Chewy’s respect. Other than the fact that he has a bit of an attitude (which is pretty standard for all petite pooches, trust me!), this lovely boy has no other issues. He does well with other dogs but doesn’t feel comfortable with small children or cats.
Chewy is full housetrained, crate trained, and does excellent on a leash. In fact, next to cuddles and treats, there’s nothing Chewy loves more than walks and car rides with his human!
