Bambi the Shih Tzu x Poodle puppy

Bambi the Shih Tzu x Poodle puppy

Sweet Bambi is a nine month old Shih Tzu x Poodle puppy who was signed over from her family as they could no longer give her the time she needed. They made the difficult decision to allow her to be rehomed so she could find a family with more time and space to allow her to blossom. Bambi is a bouncy happy pup who loves people and other dogs. She has a lovely soft coat and has been for her first groom and did very well. Bambi will need some grooming in the future and the cost should be considered. Bambi will make someone a wonderful companion but could live for 12 years + so please keep this in mind.

Like all puppies Bambi will chew, pee and poop and need someone at home to help her settle in and learn her new routine.

Bambi is fully vaccinated and enjoying her short walks. She is too young to be neutered but it is a condition of this adoption that she is done by your own vet within 12 months when she is fully grown and ready. Bambi has not yet had a season, but this could come anytime in the next few months and so she will need to live with other neutered male dogs if applicable.

Bambi will be fully vet checked before leaving.

We are currently very busy and rescue spaces are extremely limited – PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU HAVE HOLIDAYS BOOKED OR ARE NOT IN A POSITION TO FINALISE THE ADOPTION IN GOOD TIME – we have a huge waiting list which we are constantly juggling as we hate turning away dogs in need.

Casper the Maltese x Chihuahua

Casper the Maltese x Chihuahua

**CASPER IS IN LONG TERM FOSTER – HE HAD ONE MEET AND GREET ARRANGED – HOWEVER THIS WAS UNSUCCESSFUL AFTER HE GOT SCARED OF A LARGER DOG AND BECAME UPSET AND BARKY** This is such a shame for Casper as he is a very sweet and funny little dog, he thrives off human fuss and will do well with a confident handler who can take some time to teach him the world isn’t a scary place and he doesn’t need to make noise to warn other dogs away.

Tiny little Casper is a Maltese x Chihuahua and two years old. He has come into rescue after not getting along with the larger dogs in the house. Casper is a little unsure at the minute but quickly settling into his new routine and doing well. Casper does like the sound of his own voice and can be a bit yappy but responds when corrected. Casper is very small and will need a patient new owner who will allow him time to settle in and work on his confidence. We have restarted Casper’s vaccinations as they have lapsed, a second will be due by your own vet in two weeks time. Casper is eager to earn your affection and loves a cuddle. He would do best as an only dog or with another small, laid back friend. Casper can be fearful of larger dogs.

We are currently very busy and rescue spaces are extremely limited – PLEASE DO NOT APPLY IF YOU HAVE HOLIDAYS BOOKED OR ARE NOT IN A POSITION TO FINALISE THE ADOPTION IN GOOD TIME – we have a huge waiting list which we are constantly juggling as we hate turning away dogs in need.

Pascal the Toy Poodle

Pascal the Toy Poodle

**PASCAL SADLY HAD ONE FAILED ADOPTION AND WAS RETURNED TO US** Unfortunately for Pascal his first adopters did over estimate their time and commitment to training and did not follow the advice they were given to help him settle with some boundaries in place, and he snapped after they were playing rough with him after a few days in his new home.

Pascal is a super sassy Toy Poodle who came to Little Legs from a local vet after being surrendered to be put to sleep at one year old – he was a much loved dog but his owners were not able to handle him and he had resorted to resource guarding and does have a bite history. Pascal has been in long term care of the rescue and made massive progress, he lives with other small dogs in foster and is generally a very fun, affectionate boy but will need confident and experienced owners who can handle his occasional outbursts. These are infrequent and short lived, but he can be a tiny diva when he can’t get his own way. Pascal loves to play with a ball and toys and to cuddle up in a donut bed, but will sometimes guard a fluffy bed if allowed to. Out and about Pascal is a dream and loves meeting new people, walks beautifully on a lead and is happy to be handled as long as he knows you are going to pick him up. Pascal is muzzle trained and accepts this well. He weighs only 3kg. Pascal is good at the groomers and will tolerate ear cleaning and plucking with a muzzle on. Pascal is fully vaccinated and will require regular hair cuts. Pascal could be an only dog in the right circumstances.

We will not place Pascal in a hurry due to his history, we want his next home to be forever.

Age – 3 years old

Colour – black

Microchip number and company – Pascal is chipped and the paperwork passed to the new owners

Known medical conditions – Pascal can be prone to itchy ears like a lot of curly coated dogs, but is used to regular plucking and cleaning
