Owner Moving - Horribly Neglected Chewie Surrendered



A quiet, loving dog was surrendered to AHS because his owner was moving and could not take the dog.

THANKFULLY, she gave up "Chewie" who was in an atrocious condition.

Seeing the neglect only brought memories of Sammy, the Cocker Spaniel, who legs were paralyzed by the tightened mass of fur wound around his legs.

Chewie had long massive tightly bound hair around his legs, his ears -- a horrific sight to behold. As soon as the older Shih Tzu arrived, he was brought to our groomer who slowly and gently removed all of the hair on his body. He allowed us to groom him without the need for anesthesia. It is believed that there is an old fracture of the leg and he is very slowly gaining strength in walking. Chewie also is being treated for ear infections.

The small gent has a wonderful personality and will be in need of a lifetime commitment of love.

Pictures and evidence regarding the owner who neglected this dog has been referred to the NJ SPCA.

AHS is always in need of donations to address the negligence and lack of concern for this gent and those that come after - please donate and help. A veterinary examination will need further tests to see what, if any, additional repairs will need to be done for Chewie.

This adorable fella is at the AHS Newark facility. For more information, call the Society at 973-824-7080 and refer to File 127383 or you can e-mail us.

9/10/2014 - Chewie Update

When Chewie’s owner was moving and unable to take her dog, she brought her to the AHS. What a blessing for this Shi Tzu!

As soon as Chewie entered our doors, he was immediately whisked off the groomer who slowly and gently removed all of the matted hair around the ears, the hardened mass around his legs. The grooming was done so gently, he didn’t need any anesthesia. He has a wonderful and gentle personality while he was being shorn of his horrific prison of fur.

After a brief time at our Newark Medical Dept., Chewie was sent to Popcorn Park to be medically assessed by our vet. Since July, Chewie is being treated for stubborn ear infections. The tightly bound fur around his front legs and paws has impeded their movement. There was poor blood circulation which has resulted in deformity of the bone structure. Blood results show a problem with liver enzymes and Chewie will need to go through additional tests. Thanks to the Res-Q Fund, we are able to help with fella who is about 10 years old. All of the medical problems resulted from the lack of proper grooming.

Chewie is at AHS in Forked River. For more information on Chewie, call them at 609-693-1900 or e-mail them

The report and photos were given to the NJ SPCA for their investigation/action. To date, we have not heard anything about the matter.
