About me

Hi, I'm Gizmo and I'm a 7 year old Jack Russell X Chihuahua. I'm looking for a very special new home, and new owners with Terrier or 'nervous rescue dog' experience is essential. It took my friends here a little while to gain my trust as I'm a very worried boy and anyone interested in giving me a loving home will need to understand that I'll need lots of time, patience and plenty of visits here at the centre in order to feel comfortable with you too.  I'm now relaxed enough around my close friends here to actually enjoy some fuss, which means I've come on a really long way as I was so scared by people touching me when I first arrived. Once I bond with someone I am your typical cheeky terrier and I'm told what I lack in size I make up for with my amazing character which often makes my friends here smile. Due to my extremely nervous nature I will need a quiet adult only home with no visiting children. I could potentially live with a calm dog and could possibly live with cats.
