Chewy is a fun, loving, and athletic two-year-old, 71-pound, male German Shepherd/Black Lab-mix looking for a loving guardian. He is wonderful with other dogs of all shapes and sizes, playful, adorable, and extremely friendly with people. Perhaps too friendly, because he does joyously jump on people in greeting unless they have the foresight to show him a treat and ask him to sit. He is a love but needs help with his manners. He does well on leash and is housebroken, although he's very strong and LOVES a fenced in yard to run and play fetch. Chewy was found stray in Marion, Illinois, in July without a microchip or collar with tags. He was brought to the Williamson County Animal Control. He was there for two long months. Long enough to make best friends with the tiny 14-pound Chihuahua in the next run. So, Friends of Petraits Rescue took in both the big dog and his tiny buddy the Chihuahua Boomer. Chewy will be neutered in mid-October. He is up to date on rabies, distemper, lepto and Bordetella vaccines. He is de-wormed, microchipped, and sadly heartworm positive. He will be treated for heartworm disease in November. Chewy's adoption fee of $300 benefits rescued pets and includes his medical treatment. To meet and possibly adopt Chewy and/or his buddy Boomer, please fill out an application at https://friendsofpetraits.com/dog-cat-adoption-application/ and follow up by contacting [email protected] Chewy and Boomer are both being fostered in Chicago's Andersonville neighborhood.
