Help Chewy walk again…as a tri-paw

Posted on 28 April 2019 by Douglas Merrow

Chewy is a 3 year old mastiff/lab mix who loves to spend time with his family and in nature. He is full of energy, love, affection and kindness. He came through the second chance program as he is a big boy and was not getting adopted due to his size and people’s worry he would be an aggressive dog…although, nothing could be further from the truth. He is the kindest, most resilient, most joyful being his family knows. They wrote a song for him about how he is such a sweet big boy who bounces around the house, with his tongue hanging out of his mouth.

Chewy recently was hit by a car and his leg could not be saved so the tough decision had to be made to amputate his right front leg. He is a young, strong and healthy boy full of life, though he is also a big boy who will need time, patience and support living life on 3 legs. The costs of his trip to the ER to help manage his pain, the surgery to remove his leg and rehabilitation and recovery supports and supplies are adding up.

His mommas are both social workers and have limited resources to finance his road to recovery, though they love him soooo much and want to be able to help him live a healthy, happy, lively quality of life. They chose not to have children to dedicate their lives to rescuing dogs…the dogs are their children. Any support and assistance you might be able to provide would be greatly appreciated. Every little bit helps. Thanks for your consideration, thoughts and care!!
