Hello, My name is Chewie, but you can call me Mr. Snuggle! I am an adult Pekenese, looking for a lap of my very own to snuggle in! My people said that I am a very charming boy that is friendly and good natured. I will even try visiting with strangers when we are out an about because I think everyone is in love with me as much as my foster mom. I love giving her smooches when I am snuggling on her lap.  

In my leisure time I enjoy some exploration in the backyard. We have a very big back yard and I love frolicking with the other dogs, laying in the sun and following my people around. I do required a fenced yard as I don’t have a lot of leash experience. A fenced yard is also great for potty training – I am on a good routine and know the work “outside.”

One of the highlights of my day is snacktime! We get yummy, dehydrated chicken or liver and bully sticks – yummy in my tummy! I also love crinkly toys – I make foster mom laugh with my antics. Sometimes I do get a little possessive with my special toys so hopefully you have lots for everyone to share!

Ready for happy and funny friend with lots of love to give? Then I am the one for you! All I need is a forever home with lots of patience, unconditional love and someone with time to give me sweet little snuggles.

*Please note that some of our dogs are obtained from shelters, surrendered to our care, or released from breeders.  Each animal's bio is based on our experience of the animal within our care, an educated guess based on physical characteristics, temperament and information shared. Some of the animals come from situations where they are lacking experience in a home and confidence in humans. In turn, they require another companion dog and/or a fenced in yard in their forever home in order for them to feel safe. If you are interested in a  particular dog whose bio states those needs and do not currently have them, please understand that your home might not be the right fit.  Please use the filter on our Adoptable Dogs page to find the perfect match for your home.
