Chewbacca NewLifeJourney 2006

Chewbacca in Shelter

Chewbacca New Life Starts

Chewbacca First Five Months


Chewbacca had his previous thread moved by mods to archives as they had gotten too long (but hopefully not too boring). You can revisit his other threads by clicking on the links above.

So we will start a new thread for 2006. In summary, he is a senior found homeless on the streets of New York. He was posted here in August 2005 as a dog who had been waiting in a shelter for many months. The ACO that picked him up in New Babylon, Long Island has German Shepherds herself and aggressively advocated for him and was losing hope. She felt at his age and in his condition, all he needed was a bed and a bone in a corner somewhere with someone who would love him hopefully as much as she did.

The ACO was going on vacation the following week and the plan was to euthanize him while she was gone. I fell in love with his shelter pictures and his story, and quickly drove down to adopt him.

This is a picture chronicle of his after-the-shelter life so that when others consider seniors up for adoption from this forum, they can project some of the possibilities. Not to mention it's a booster for rescuers to know that for the many that you can't save, here's the one that you did, and wow, look at the difference that you can make in one dog's life.

I'm madly in love with my senior. There have been zero regrets and lots of surprises as you too will soon discover.

Kisses & hugs from Chewie.
