Please meet Zealous Zippy! Zippy joined us when he and his litter mates were sadly dumped in a crate in a field – how anyone could do this is beyond belief – attached is the picture of them on arrival! We believed them to be 6-8 weeks old as they were all under 2kg, and riddled with fleas and worms, when they had their vet check however it was found that they are closer to 14-16 weeks, and just extremely malnourished and dwarfed. Absolutely shocking that this sort of thing is happening in the UK still! Zippy was the smallest of the boys and when he arrived he was just 1.8kg and very poorly, a month on and he is doing fab and ready to go to his forever home!
Zippy has very much been treated like a child since being with me, he sleeps on the bed with me and knows the routine very well, he loves snuggles and wants to be with people all the time, he is also utterly fearless with dogs of all shapes and sizes so we feel he will need a dog companion, however we will consider homes without dogs if humans are around most of the time. Zippy is fine with rabbits as well, and although not formally cat tested, he is young enough to learn to live with them.
As they are strays we have absolutely no idea of their breeding, they appear to be some sort of sight hound mix, possibly Saluki but because of their poor bodily condition we honestly have no real idea, they will be small to medium size when fully grown. whatever he is he is gorgeous and fearless and full of character!! Such a shame for a baby to find himself homeless, and to have suffered such cruelty at such a young tender age. Despite this Zippy is a lively happy little lad that would love a family to play with him and keep him occupied, he loves a walk and loves to greet everyone he meets! Zippy is fab off lead and sticks right by your side!
Zippy is still a pup so will need ongoing training, he is mostly house trained, and is mostly non destructive but if he can find a sock he will run off with it to play with it!! He absolutely adores other dogs and will need to live with another dog for company. Zippy is crate trained and can be left for short periods, however he has recently taken a dislike to his crate and prefers to lay with the other dogs on the sofa! Zippy is a real snuggle bug that just loves to curl up with you for a cuddle, He will be a fab family pet or companion to someone who needs a friend. Due to Zippys very small size, homes with children age 13 plus will be considered only.
Zippy is a gorgeous happy, bouncy active puppy that so desperately needs a forever home and family to grow up with. Zippy is fully vaccinated, microchipped de flead and wormed, he will need to be neutered when he is 6 months old.
