A dog named Chewbacca or Chewie is a tiny puppy that was rescued by an amazing girl named Laura. Chewie was so small that he only weighed a half-pound. When Chewie was rescued, he was really sick and veterinarians were even skeptical if Chewie would be able to survive into adulthood.
When Laura first got Chewie, Chewie’s previous owners were no longer able to take care of him. It led to neglect and Chewie’s fur have matted into his skin, which would have been really painful. Chewie’s fur needed to be shaved off because of the matting.
Chewie also couldn’t walk and when he did learn how to walk, he was wobbly and unstable. Eventually, Chewie had a seizure which required him to have surgery. Chewie’s surgery is a spinal fusion in his neck which gave him a better quality of life. After Chewie’s surgery, he stopped having seizures and he started to show more of his loving personality.
Ever since Chewie’s spinal fusion, Laura saw a completely different side of this tiny dog. He’s no longer in pain and he started to show everyone how playful and feisty he is. Chewie’s favorite activity now involves hanging out with Laura’s other dog who’s a lot bigger than Chewie.
Laura’s dog wasn’t a big fan of Chewie but after Chewie spent more time with her, Laura’s dog started to learn to love Chewie. Laura’s dog would even sleep beside Chewie’s bed whenever Chewie’s taking a nap.
As weeks and months went by, Chewie started growing healthy fur and he also started gaining weight. Thanks to Laura, Chewie’s health improved significantly. Initially, Laura wanted to foster Chewie since they already have other dogs in the house. However, after spending more time with Chewie, Laura fell in love and she can’t imagine her life or her home without Chewie.
So, instead of adopting Chewie out, Laura decided to make Chewie a permanent part of her family. Chewie’s recovery is one short of a miracle. Thanks to Laura, Chewie finally has a second chance of having a happy life and he also gained a forever home. Here’s a heartwarming video showing Chewie’s road to recovery.
