Fun Fact: Chewie loves to get into your personal space! 

Chewie was not meant to come to Hopefield, he was supposed to be sold because he was ‘pretty’.  The sanctuary received a call about a lady who had gone on holiday and left her 3 alpacas with a friend.  When she came back the alpacas had mange and were severely underweight. She agreed to give us two of the alpacas. When his friends arrived we pulled down the trailer to see that Chewie was with them!  She had changed her mind and given us him too, were so happy to be able to give them the home and care they need.  Chewie is such a happy alpaca and loves being with all the others. He loves grated carrot and sugar beet!
