Along with Chewy was a note, telling the story of how the woman had endured domestic abuse by her ex-boyfriend and could not afford to take the dog with her on the plane. 

“Hi! I’m Chewy! My owner was in an abusive relationship and couldn’t afford me to get on the flight,” the note read. “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.”

Chewy was taken to a local dog rescue and is reported to be OK, according to KSNV. 

The rescue center, Connor and Millie's Dog Rescue, wrote a post on Facebook Wednesday putting Chewy up for adoption. 

“It's gonna take weeks to dig through all those loving requesters,” the post read. 

A spokesperson from Connor and Millie’s Dog Rescue said that if the owner is safe and wants to get Chewy back they “will do what ever it takes to reunite them and keep them safe.” 

“We are very cognitive of the risks involved and she would have to provide positive proof of her relationship with Chewy,” the rescue center said in a statement.
