Sid the Chihuahua
Sid is a sweet timid boy who has come to Little Legs after the bigger dog in the family had taken a dislike to him and starting picking on him. Due to this he is a little reserved and overwhelmed at the minute, but with time and patience he will soon blossom. Sid is currently finding his feet in foster with lots of other small confident dogs, and whilst he isn’t interacting with them much yet, it is very early days. He is enjoying pottering in the garden and is gently taking treats from his foster Mum. Sid would love a calm and kind human to help build his confidence and show him lots of love.
Sid’s first adoption sadly failed as he has clashed with the resident cat and he was then returned to rescue. Sid will bark and chase cats.
Sid is fully vaccinated, flea and wormed and he has been vet checked. Sid is a ‘Deerhead’ type chihuahua, so slightly larger with longer legs, but just as cute. Sid has a lovely, low maintenance coat and will make someone an amazing companion. He could be an only dog in the right circumstances.
