Tiny Pintxo is an 8 year old male Cross-Breed. He is on life long heart medication, a tablet a day. He was rescued from a kill shelter in Romania bu our rescuer. He is looking to be the only dog in the house as he prefers his foster human to himself.
Height from floor to shoulder; 8 inches, length from neck to tail: 14 inches. He is a bit apprehensive of both men and women when he meets them outside. He is not keen on other dogs as he likes all the attention to himself.
We cannot assess him with cats, but his foster mum thinks he would chase them as he is a cheeky chappy with a loud bark. He is fed separately from other dogs in his foster home, as he is not keen on sharing food with them.
It took for him several weeks to get used to his foster mum and now he follows her around. He just needs someone with time and patience and love for him. He is being moved and will be in foster in Edinburgh.

Pintxo is a great little character but he is NOT a lap dog and he will suddenly turn and snap if you are “over petting him “. He runs around happily coming back and forth to me and loves taking a treat. When he approaches you he shuts his eyes and puts his head down. I think he is expecting to be beaten. He is the kind of dog that wants to go for lots of walks. He is high energy for his age but also likes to sit in a comfy warm bed too.
He wants to get treats and wants to follow you around but he’s not ready to trust anyone to lift him up, to sit him on their lap or cuddle him. He is too scared. I love his happy, smiley character and boundless energy and I think that if folk just leave him be and follow the advice then I think that one day he might just jump up and sit beside them.
Pintxo needs to be the ONLY DOG in an adult only house with experienced owners. Currently in foster in Edinburgh.
Adoption fee: £150
