Sunny is a six to seven month old small crossbreed, he looks like he could be pug cross chihuahua but his parentage is unknown. (If we were an unscrupulous rescue we would call him a pugahuahua and triple the adoption fee but thankfully we are not and we believe all dogs have the same value).
Sunny is one of theee teeny tiny pups we have taken in recently from a shelter in Romania because they’ve never been handled and they weren’t about to let the volunteers there handle them any time soon! Due to our reputation of fixing untouchable dogs we were asked to take them.
Sunny is the first of the three “gremlins” to go up for adoption and the other two will follow when they are ready. Sunny was the least snappy and most curious of the three on arrival and his rehabilitation has been swifter due to this.
Sunny is still a little feisty but show me a chihuahua that isn’t! He has a bold and playful character and tries to get all the bigger dogs to play by pawing them and squeaking in their faces. Fortunately the bigger dogs play with him with kid gloves and whilst he thinks he’s taking in the almighty and winning we are watching on with growing amusement.
Sunny will need another dog in his new home and we will not consider homes that don’t already have one, we do not want any of the gremlins to be rehomed together as they are not good for each other and feed off each other’s fears. With a confident companion dog Sunny will soon overcome his fear of humans and start to understand how comforting human interaction can be.
Sunny is already walking reasonably well on a lead but his confidence will need to grow over the coming weeks. He will still snap if startled but he is becoming less easily startled in each passing day.
A chihuahua experienced home would be ideal but anyone with a bit of dog savvy and some patience and understanding could see this dinky little dog well on his road to normality ….. whatever that is!
Sunny fostered Norwich Norfolk.

PLEASE NOTE IT IS SAFE RESCUE POLICY THAT ALL DOGS ADOPTED FROM US MUST WEAR A SLIP LEAD TO BE WALKED FOR THE DURATION OF THEIR LIVES. TOO MANY DOGS ARE LOST FROM SLIPPING OUT OF COLLARS AND HARNESSES AND MANY OF OUR DOGS ARE TIMID DUE TO PAST ILL TREATMENT AND LIKELY TO PANIC WHILST OUT AND ABOUT. IT IS ABSOLUTELY OK TO USE THESE THINGS ADDITIONALLY TO SLIP LEADS BUT NOT INSTEAD OF. WE ALSO REQUEST THAT EXTENDABLE RETRACTABLE LEADS ARE NEVER USED ON OUR DOGS. IF YOU ARE OPPOSED TO SLIP LEADS PLEASE DO NOT ENQUIRE ABOUT OUR DOGS AS THIS IS NOT NEGOTIABLE. THANK YOU FOR UNDERSTANDING.
