A couple of weeks ago, the story of chewy went viral - he was abandoned in an airport bathroom in the USA by his owner - who was fleeing an abusive relationship. Her note to her pup was heart-wrenching.
The whole story brings to light the abuse both chewy and his owner went through, she couldn't keep her furry friend and decided to give him up, and the only way for her to do so was in an airport bathroom. The note is below:
It's horrible to think Chewy couldn't be with his owner and it means his owner has really lost her best friend. Fortunately chewy was found by some caring individuals who got him the help he needed.
Since then Chewy has hit the news and he has got thousands of people asking to adopt him. It got so crazy that the adoption agency (Connor and Millie's Dog Rescue) had to stop taking applications but they continue to keep everyone updated on how Chewy is doing.
Although what happened to chewy was terrible and heartbreaking, it does look like the pup is going to have a happy ending. He has been picked by a family who will give him his forever home and is sure to have a loving life full of hugs and kisses ahead.
Why not Adopt?
The story of chewy has really brought to the spotlight rescues and people who do incredible jobs throughout the world caring for animals. We can't thank them enough for doing such wonderful work day in, day out. Without them, there would not have been anyone there for chewy or dogs like him.
