Of the 21,000 homeless pets, we currently have one special canine that the force sent to us to place with his forever home.
Chewy, aka Chewbacca to many that see him, was brought to us in a search of his very own Han Solo. He wants to be a co-pilot. He wants to be a best friend. He wants to be your companion. Many folks don’t know that when George Lucas created the character of Chewbacca in Star Wars, he was inspired by his very own pet dog. And, we can see why. Throughout the epic trilogy, Chewbacca’s character was loyal and devoted to Han Solo--just like our Chewy longs to be. Han rescued Chewbacca and Chewy needs you to rescue him.
This Wookiee look-a-like is eight years old and was surrendered by his previous owner. As in the movies, this guy would be a perfect “sidekick” for any person or family. He may not be able to drive the Millennium Falcon, but he loves to play, he loves people, and he needs a family. When you see him give you a smile, you can’t help but do the same thing right back to him. Whether it’s his scruffy hair, precious underbite or his desire to be a companion, you will instantly fall in love him.
Like his Hollywood twin, our Chewy has also made a television debut. Check out his segment featured on WACH Fox 57.
May the force be with you. And, if it is, we would love for you to stop by and visit with Chewy. Please visit us at 1275 Bower Parkway, fill out our adoption application, or call (803)465-9150 for an appointment.
