Name: Chuey
Breed: Purebred All-American Mutt with a hint of Bulldog
Age: 9-months-old
Sex: Neutered Male
Organization: Labradors & Friends
Phone: (619) 990-7455
Website: LabradorsAndFriends.org

Chuey was rescued from the shelter only 6 weeks ago, and what an amazing transformation in that time! He was 24 pounds of stinky cuteness who waddled into his rescuers car in extreme pain. His limbs and face were swollen, raw, and excruciatingly painful from demodex mange and a secondary bacterial infection. He would cry out in pain if you touched him, and had zero chance of making it out of the shelter alive. But he trusted his rescuer instantly, and happily fell asleep in her car as she drove him to safety. He’s now 31-pounds of pure love…the king of his castle, happy, playful, completely house-trained and crate-trained, and good with other dogs. He’s a low-rider with a big personality….a heartbreaker for sure, and will be the hit of the party at the Dog Days of Summer Adoption Event this Saturday. Find him at the Labradors & Friends Adoption Booth. Remember, had a foster home not been available, Chuey would be dead. Adopting from rescues opens a spot for another dog to be saved. Becoming a foster allows the rescues to save more dogs. Adopt or foster….either way…..get involved!
