Mr. Chew lives in Nana's apartment on the 13th floor in an apartment complex.
Nana purchased Private, mistaking him for a squeaky toy, while he was attempting to find a gift for Ted, and reveals him to be a Christmas present for Mr. Chew.
Mr. Chew nearly mauled Private, while Nana was watching a football game on TV, but Mr. Chew was defeated by Skipper, Kowalski, and Rico (who had set out to save Private).
However, Nana didn't hear the fight, but after she sees the damage, she blames Mr. Chew for destroying her apartment
