Meet Chewie and his million-dollar smile!Despite Chewie’s friendly personality, he’s too shy to let the shelter volunteers take his picture!See, Chewie is stuck with scars on his face after the abuse he suffered as a puppy, from a man who was prejudiced against pit bulls.Can Chewie find the confidence to stand up to these awful pit bull stereotypes, and smile for the camera?The Furever Home Friends is a series of kids’ books about shelter dogs and their journeys to adoption.Our goal is to raise awareness about the importance of adopting animals from shelters, and to share the stories of real animals who have gone through the shelter system. We also aim to teach children about a variety of social issues, including adoption, animal abuse, body image, disabilities, racism, sexism, and much more.

Smile, Chewie!
