Janet and Chewie, a 2-1/2-year-old Chihuahua/Yorkie mix, live in Oregon. Chewie came from Rover Rescue of Illinois in 2015, reportedly from a hoarding situation in Indiana. Janet says, “Fortunately he was well socialized and loves most everyone he meets.”
Chewie started his therapy career with Elliott, Janet’s 11-year-old cat. Elliott had surgery for cancer in his jaw and Janet says Chewie was very attentive, keeping Elliott company and grooming him.
The Read With Me program is a goal for Janet since Chewie loves children. They’d also like to try nursing homes and the UW dorm visits.
Janet loves to cook, ride motorcycles, and attend events where Chewie can come along.
