HE SURVIVED the long-haul flight from Australia and after a quick nap in his specially made dog bed, deaf pup Chevy was busily exploring his new American homeland.

After touching down on Thursday night in Virginia and meeting his new owners, Chevy set about seeing the sites as he and his new family took a road trip to New York for the Easter holidays.

Owners Renee Saraceni and Tommy Bayer say that he is fitting in well as part of a family who already cannot imagine life without him.

"He was so excited when he saw us for the first time," Renee' said.

The Australia blue cattle dog is just six months old and first made headlines as he prepared to make the long and expensive journey from Australia to begin a new life in Virginia.

Chevy, who was born deaf, became a rescue pet after coming into the care of Wide Bay Animal Rescue in Hervey Bay.

Now, the excitable pup sports a brand new Virginia t-shirt as he adjusts to life abroad.

A Facebook page has been made so that Chevy's friends on both sides of the pond can track his journey.
