Captain Chewie (first photo) entered our care with medical and behavior issues. He had been abandoned at an emergency vet needing immediate care: He needed his eye removed, he was skinny, he had little to no hair, and his skin was very inflamed. The whole ordeal says a lot about Chewie and his demeanor, because he has been the happiest boy with us. Right now, our Behavior Manager is working on his loose leash-walking, teaching nose targets, “find it,” and he even is responding to his name like a champ!

Captain Chewie deserves a life filled with new adventures and being a rotten spoiled pup! His daily Kong treats provide a good deal of relief for him and help to de-stress him while he is in our care. You can meet Captain Chewie here.
