This “Little Guy” Needs Our Help
Today I received an email from a woman about a German Shepherd that was in a shelter and going to be “put down” and needed to find a reputable rescue to take him in. She left her phone number in her email, so I called her immediately to see how I could help since I have this website and a Facebook page completely dedicated to GSD’s called German Shepherd Dog Fans. She told me that the German Shepherd had gotten into a good rescue, so that dog was going to be fine, which was fantastic news, however, there was another dog, a Chihuahua named “Chewbaca” that desperately needed to find a good home.
I know my site is strictly about German Shepherds, or is supposed to be…but when there is an animal in need that has been brought to my attention, I simply can’t ignore it. I told the woman I would write a short article about “Chewbaca” and post it on my website, and get the word out the best way I could so hopefully “Chewy” can find a wonderful new forever home.
Chewbaca is a little over 8 years old and is a “special needs” dog. He is mostly blind, and doesn’t have any teeth, so he will need more care than your average doggie. Many people have shown interest in Chewy, however as soon as they find out about his special needs, everyone then passes him over. The picture here is a picture of Chewbaca from P.A.W.S of Tinley Park’s website.
His time is running out. Please help pass this post along so we can find the perfect forever home for him. If anyone is interested in adopting Chewbacca or getting him into a reputable “no kill” rescue please contact P.A.W.S. of Tinley Park through their website or by calling them at (815) 464-7298.
Remember when you buy, adopt, or rescue a dog, that commitment needs to be for their entire life. Many of us love animals and have a soft spot for them in our hearts, but if you really want one or several in your life, make sure your are ready to commit to them for their entire lives which could potentially be 10 – 20 years depending on the breed.
