A months-old puppy abandoned in an airport bathroom is on his was to finding a new loving home thanks to a local animal shelter.

According to KSNV, the miniature chihuahua was abandoned at the Las Vegas airport with a note from his previous owner, who was desperate to get out of an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford to take him on her flight.

The note read:

Hi! I’m Chewy! My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight. She didn’t want to leave me with all her heart but she has NO other option. My ex-boyfriend kicked my dog when we were fighting and he has a big knot on his head. He probably needs a vet. I love Chewy sooo much – please love and take care of him.

A stranger found Chewy, and he ended up at Connor & Millie’s Dog Rescue, which works closely with Noah’s Animal House, a safe place that keeps sheltered women and children near their pets.

“There is absolutely an option out there,” said Lori Nelson, who works with Noah’s Animal House. “The animal is equally a member of the family as anyone else and it’s vital that when you’re leaving a domestic violence situation that your pet can come with you.”

A Facebook post by Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue shows little Chewy looking happy, rolling in the grass. The shelter says they are currently shifting through a big pile of adoption applications expressing interest in Chewy.

They hope to have him in a new home soon.
