About me

Hello! I am Gizmo and I'm a 2 year old "Chalkie" or, in other words, a Chihuahua cross Yorkshire Terrier. Sadly, my owner was ill and I now find myself needing a new home. I am a sweetnatured little boy but I do need a lot of reassurance from my owner as I can be quite nervy in some situations. I am looking for a new home where people can be patient with me and not push me too quickly. Once I feel comfortable, I am loving and will be glad of cuddles and a lap to sit on and will certainly enjoy some home comforts! I enjoy having a mad five minutes where I'll tear round the garden, so it'll have to be secured so I don't squeeze through any gaps! As with all terrier types, I've got a cheeky character which will shine through once I'm settled. I am nervous around dogs and scared of cats so homevisits will need to be done to make sure I won't be frightened of any resident animals.
