Gizmo is an 11-year-old Chihuahua cross Yorkshire Terrier boy who is in an Oldies Club foster home in Chalfont St Peter, South Buckinghamshire, waiting for someone to offer him a permanent home.
Gizmo has previously been an only dog and he does enjoy one-to-one attention. He has been OK with the other dogs in his foster home but he can be quite bossy and has snapped at them on occasion. He would probably prefer to be your only dog. Gizmo isn’t used to living with cats and he chases them in the garden.
Gizmo has never lived with children, and it’s probably a bit late for him to learn to live with youngsters. He should be fine with sensible older children visiting though who won’t pull him around. He might be cute but he isn’t a toy!
Gizmo’s favourite pastimes: Being made a fuss of; sitting with you; chasing a ball when he feels like playing, and he enjoys chasing pigeons. Gizmo’s dislikes: The vacuum cleaner, but he is happy to leave the room when told.
Gizmo’s ideal home would be with a retired person or couple, with a nice secure garden and lots of time to devote to him.
Gizmo is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, and has been wormed and flea treated. He has arthritis in his back legs, but manages very well on 1/2 a Rimadyl tablet per day. This treatment will be ongoing. He is also having Apoquel, for itchy skin, which seems to be working well and should be able to be stopped in a month or so.
