Chewbacca aka Chewie is a 4 pound rescue dog with a unique underbite.

He was found wandering the streets by police officers and taken to the Humane Society as a stray. Shortly after, Chiquita Chihuahua Rescue took him in for some much needed love and care (including vaccinations and needing 17 teeth pulled) to prepare him for adoption.

After spending two months at CCR, Chewie found his forever home and was officially adopted in 2015 at the age of 6.

Chewie loves sharing his 6-toothed underbite and big personality for all to enjoy; we hope his adoption story helps spread awareness about the importance and impact of adopting rescue animals of all shapes, sizes and ages.
