Over the weekend, a tiny puppy was discovered in a bathroom at the McCarren Airport in Las Vegas, Nevada. According to News 3 Las Vegas, somebody left a handwritten note with the tiny Chihuahua which indicated that the abandonment was the result of an abusive relationship.
A portion of the letter, about the pup whose name is “Chewy,” reads:
My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight. She didn’t want to leave me with all her heart but she has NO other option. My ex-boyfriend kicked my dog when we were fighting and he has a big knot on his head.
The final sentence of the letter is heartbreaking:
I love Chewy sooo much – please love and take care of him.”
Chewy was taken to Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue – on July 1, the rescue agency posted a photo of the puppy, along with a request for the image to be shared:
Please share in hopes that his mom sees this that she was brave to leave and that he will have a great life.
The media attention has resulted in a great deal of interest being given to the abandoned puppy – on July 4, the rescue agency commented on Chewy’s “pupularity.”
There has been tremendous interest in little Chewy !!! 💜 we are compiling all the interest forms and will be going through them all. CMDR would like to say Thank you for all the offers of a loving home.
However, there is but 1 Chewy and he can go but to 1 home.
Please consider the hundreds if not thousands of “Chewys” loaded with love that are desperately seeking homes in shelters which are at max capacity, rescues are full! Please consider adopting another wonderful companion in his honor !
They too were a Chewy : they’ve lost their home through no fault of their own. Life is tenuous in a shelter, lonely and the days seem endless in a cage. It’s the 4 th of July. The day the single worst day for shelter animals for lost or surrendered.
Not everyone can have Chewy himself but they sure can save another just like him and gift that furbaby a life !
