Lewie in Gettysburg, PA

Meet Lewie! He is a very happy Ruby boy that loves to meet people and go to new places. He was given to rescue when he was retired from a commercial breeder in Lancaster County. Lewie isn’t typical of most commercial breeder surrenders- he isn’t afraid of people or loud noises and took to a leash right away. 

When he first came into rescue he was very obese weighing 38.2 pounds and could only walk a few feet and had to sit down to rest. As of mid-June he lost nearly 5 pounds. His ideal weight should be between 23-25 lbs, so it is important that his new family keeps him on a healthy diet and continues to work in his weight loss.

Lewie is very smart and has learned sit, down, and then rolls over on his back for a belly rub! He is very helpful around the house too. If he sees a shoe, shirt, sock , toys or any other clothes on the floor, he will pick it up and bring  it to you and gladly give it to you when asked.

He loves to go on walks, but needs a little more encouragement to walk correctly. He loves car rides, but has always been in a crate for safety reasons. He sleeps in his crate at night with no problem, but would be very happy to sleep with his family.

Lewie gets along well with his foster sisters, but doesn’t seem to care if they are not around him. He is more attached to his foster parents, following them all over, and needs to have them in sight all the time. He does have some separation anxiety if he cannot get to Mom and Dad in another part of the house, but is OK when they leave the house.

An active family with children would be ideal since he is always on the go. A fenced yard would be nice, but not mandatory, but would need to be walked frequently. He is a very good listener and comes when he is called. He loves to play fetch, if you throw a toy inside or out, he will retrieve it and bring it back to you. 

He is not quite there yet with potty training, but with consistency and frequent outings he will be reliable.

Lewie has recently been neutered and up to date on his vaccines. If you are interesting in adopting this sweet, active boy, please fill out an application and email Melissa MacMullin cavalierrescueusapa@gmail.com and ask to be considered as a family for Lewie.
