Hi. I'm Chewy, short for Chewbacca. I'm a Shih Tzu / basset hound mix, or so people guess since I have a long body and roo like a basset hound when I talk to my people. I also have a Shih Tzu underbite, or my smile, as my family calls it . Apparently I'm a senior dog since I just turned 10 but I don't feel a day over 6! I just came to live with my new family a few months ago and have lots of new toys to play with and a balcony to bark at the birds. My favorite thing besides cheese is belly rubs but I also love walking on the downtown sidewalks and trying to eat the pizza crusts or french fries before my mom can pick them up!
