Breed: Jack Russell X Chihuahua
Age: 18 Months
Chino could not believe his luck when his foster carer welcomed him inside to be with the family. It didn’t take long for him to discover the lounge and the cosy little blanket which he made into a comfy nest. Chino quickly analysed the doggy door, and he practised going in and out all evening. He was so delighted with his new found freedom, that he grinned from ear to ear!
Although very shy at first, once chino checks you out, he will love you forever and never leave your lap. He is definitely not a fan of the off leash dog park, preferring a brisk trot around the block on lead. He can be a bit reactive to dogs in his face that he doesn’t know, so best to keep him on the move. At home, Chino is so chilled, wanting your lap and your bed, and on a cold night, he makes a fantastic hot water bottle! He is not that interested in toys or balls, but will delight you with a little game here and there. He will twinkle toe after you wherever you go, then look for someone to be his snuggle bunny. Chino is not a barker, but will alert you to any visitors at the door as he should. He really is a cuddly soul and so very easy to love.
Because Chino is only a tiny little chap, it is best he is rehomed with gentle children over ten years old. Chino is a sensitive soul, and will not do well in a noisy, busy household. He would love a little female dog for company, as long as she is friendly and calm. He would also be fine as an only dog, but not if he is going to be left alone daily for many hours, as Chino would be so very lonely. He enjoys car rides with his family, as long as he can relax in a cosy dog bed with his blankey.
Chino is a house dog and must always have indoor/outdoor access whenever he wants through a doggy door or similar. A quick brush every couple of days will keep any loose hair controlled, as he does shed a little.
