Brewster's Story

Ay Chihuahua!  Brewster is probably the cutest Chihuahua mix you’ve ever seen!  Brewster is one handsome boy who uses his good looks to his full advantage! He charms the socks off of everyone he comes into contact with and can’t wait to charm his way into your heart! Brewster came to PAWS from one of our rural transport partners. After his arrival, we discovered that he was Heartworm positive and he was sent into a quiet and calm foster home to undergo treatment. This boy has been through a lot, and now that he is finished with his treatment, he is eager to find a wonderful forever family to enjoy life to the fullest with! It does take this sweetheart some time to warm up to strangers, so he would love to be with a patient and understanding adopter who will give him time to acclimate to his surroundings and his people. Once he trusts you, he will surely melt right in your arms and want to stay there until the sun sets! Brewster adores receiving belly rubs and is a huge fan of relaxing to the max. In his previous foster home he absolutely loved to sit in a sunny spot in the window and soak up all the UV rays! Brewster would love to find someone who enjoys being a couch potato as much as he does!

Brewster is searching for a quiet adults-only home with an experienced owner. Since he is timid and shy around strangers, he would prefer to be in a calm home where he can enjoy time in a room of his own while guests are over. All Brewster needs is someone who will give him his space in the beginning and allow him to come to them without overwhelming him too much. He is sure to come around with time, and once he does he will love you until the very end! He forms a strong bond with his people and tends to guard them from other people and animals. Brewster would thrive in a home where he is the only pet and with an owner who can carefully manage this behavior and work on his training. From his time in his foster home, we learned that Brewster loves going for walks! He always gets super excited when you take him out for a nice journey through the great outdoors! He can get reactive when he sees other dogs and strangers when walking on a leash and would do best in a home in a low dog traffic area without any elevators or shared stairwells. Brewster also had two all-time favorite toys when he was in his foster home- a squeaky squirrel and a squeaky ball! He absolutely loves retrieving them and bringing them back to his person for another round of fetch! He would be ecstatic if his forever home had a couple of toys just like this that he could play with whenever he pleases! Brewster is such an adorable and loving guy who just wants a place to call home. If you’re looking to add a special canine companion to your home, then look no further! Brewster is the perfect pup for you!
