All about Chevy
Chevy is a big teddy bear who loves attention,  has loads of love to give, and is friendly as can be. This handsome fella gets along with everyone he meets and is a mellow, quiet sweetheart who is looking for someone to give him loads of TLC.

Chevy, along with his sister Miya, came to us when their owner passed away.   This sweet guy is in pretty rough shape, and we are working on a plan to help get him feeling loads better very soon.  At the moment Chevy is morbidly obese, which is making his orthopedic issues far worse than they would otherwise be.  Currently tipping the scales at 180 lbs, he is in need of some serious weight loss.  His extra weight, in addition to a previously untreated knee injury, arthritis and lack of muscle are making it difficult for Chevy to get around.  With some pain meds and weight loss we hope to get him feeling better very soon.

Bloodwork results are pending, and once we have those results we will work on our action plan to start getting Chevy healthy.

Donations towards his care are greatly appreciated.
