“Grrrwaaaaaarggggh. My name is Chewy, and my Mom, Auburn Morrell of Luverne, gave me my name because she thinks I look like Chewbacca, the Wookiee from Star Wars. Sometimes it does feel like it’s me and Mom against the world, so she is definitely my Han Solo, and we will always fight for galactic freedom. I love stealing socks and playing fetch. My favorite treats are Pedigree meat treats.”

Chewy is a three-month-old mix-breed dog. His Mom said that when she saw his face, she knew Chewy was the pup for her.

Chewy is an inside dog who always sleeps in his mom’s bed. He loves to eat ice and comes running anytime he hears the freezer open.

He is a spoiled puppy dog that will not eat unless his food is prepared to his liking.
Chewy aced potty training and is taking quickly to learning basic commands. He sleeps on his back like a human and often trips over his own short little legs.

According to his mom, Chewy is a healthy boy who sheds a lot of hair and has a little dry skin that requires some doggy conditioner. Chewy is a special part of the Morrell household, and his family thinks he would make a great service dog with his kind and unique personality, Chewbacca-like howls and funny noises.
