Matti is the cutest little Terrier cross Chihuahua whom we believe to be around eight years old. Matti is fostered in Gt Yarmouth (FR001). Matti is a funny little character who loves being talked and sung to. He will dance around and wag his tail at this but is very tense when you stoop down to pick him up or fuss him. Once you have hold of him he will relax into a fuss and enjoy a cuddle but this is common behaviour for a dog who has previously been beaten. It’s upsetting to see his little body huddle into self protection mode. He has a floating bone in his rib cage which suggests he may have been kicked there.
We are looking for a quiet and understanding home for this little old chap. In time he will learn to trust those around him and be more relaxed but for now he’s just the cutest little worrier in town! Matti lives very well with other dogs but becomes a demon around food with them. He’s clearly had to fight for everything in his sorrowful little life and it’s going to take a while for him to realise nobody is going to take his goods anymore. He has no food issues with people just the other dogs.
Matti is not cat tested but could be if required. He would not enjoy living with rowdy young children that were unable to understand the circumstances of his past.
