Chewie the Pomeranian is said to be “the chillest dog you will ever meet.” Small, agile, and remarkably cute, the LA-based pooch doesn’t shy away from the camera, amassing more than 100,000 fans on Instagram and three times more than that on Tik Tok.
Known for his high-fives, Chewie will stretch out his paw to anyone willing. But life wasn’t always fun and games for the fluff ball. He started his life in China with a group of unwanted dogs, sold for consumption in China’s meat market. His owners knew instantly they had to step in and had bought him for $35.
“We heard of the breed as kids growing up, but since we never had dogs, we knew nothing about Pomeranians,” said the owners in an interview with Hello Bark. “It wasn’t until we brought him home with us and took him to the vet that they said he might be a Pomeranian.”
“Chewie has made us fall in love with the breed,” they gush. “Pomeranians are known to be yappy, aggressive and stubborn. Chewie is the complete opposite of all that. He has his own characteristics and makes us think a little boy is trapped inside this dog body.”
Could he be any cuter?!
