Get To Know Our Bark Squad Pups!

Meet Chewy! Shih-Tzu

Introducing our next Bark Squad member: Chewy!

Chewy is a Shih-tzu who has been coming to Barks & Rec for about six months. She is a happy little girl, who plays so sweetly with friends of all sizes! We’re always happy to see Chewy because she is such a sweetheart and she looooves to cuddle which is a plus for us! We are thrilled to have Chewy as a part of our bark squad. She is here with us a few times a week and is another part of our family here!

We asked Chewy’s parents to answer some of our questions about her that everyone can read below. We’re so glad to learn more about this sweet girl and very thankful that her parents continue to choose us to look after her. We hope to have Chewy around for many more years to come!

Q: Tell us Chewy’s story! Where was she born and what made you fall in love with her?

A: Chewy was born on November 28, 2019. She was the runt of the litter weighing 2lbs at 4 months old! As soon as I saw her baby photo, I was in love! You could see her personality with her tongue hanging out!

Q: What breed is Chewy? What is your favorite thing about the breed?

A: Chewy is a Shih-Tzu. My sister got a Shih-Tzu puppy and I fell in love with the breed immediately. Shih-Tzu’s are loving and FULL of personality!

Q: How did you come up with her name?

A: When Chewy was a baby she looked just like Chewbacca from Star Wars.

Q: What is Chewy’s favorite thing to do?

A: Chewy loves to play and explore. Good luck making her walk in a direction she doesn’t want to go!


Q: Is there a silly or funny story about Chewy that you would like to share?

A: Chewy will bark and demand attention when mom is working. When she REALLY wants to go to daycare she will unplug mom’s laptop!
