maybe he needs a friend… another dog to focus his energy on instead of destroying things… ??

Has the vet ruled out any oral issues? You said he is almost 2, so teething should be ruled out, but what about infections & other oral complications that could be driving the insane need to chew?

Also, do you notice he chews more when he’s alone, or is it just a constant thing?

Being an abused shelter dog could be an underlying factor despite that you adopted @3months; it might just be part of his personality, a neurosis, or quirk if you will.

As unfortunate as it may sound, he might just be plain destructive.

So 2 is really a magical age where a lot of dogs calm down.  We didn’t think ours would but he did.  We also just got another pup and it’s been a lot easier raising her since she usually just wrestles with my older dog instead of chew up anything in sight.

Awww your dog is adorable… I think we have dogs that are related. My dog is eating everything… more so clothing related.. his bandana, toys, shirts, sweaters, pants, walls, paper, books, a pair of sucks in whole… so much more..

I am scared he could die from gettng something stuck,. he just started this too. We got him from a shelter. He was a baby.. about 2-3 motnhs as well. They say they are eventually suppose to grow out of it… I agree with PP if you have the money and space maybe get him a friend.
