Dogs Trust Shoreham's canine Count Dracula seeking home this Howl-o-ween
Dogs Trust Shoreham is playing host to an adorable resident whose teeth make him look like a vampire this Howl-o-ween. Jack the three-year-old Chihuahua Cross Boston Terrier has two noticeable ‘fangs’ protruding from his bottom jaw.
Despite this resemblance, Jack’s personality is worlds away from being as dark as a vampire, as he is actually a very sweet natured little pooch who has even built unlikely friendships with larger than life ex-residents at the rehoming centre. This includes a Great Dane called Guru, a Staffordshire Bull Terrier called Kara, a German Pointer called Squid and he was happily sharing his kennel space in the company of a Golden Labrador called Ramsey, all of whom have now been rehomed but Jack is still patiently waiting.
Dogs Trust Shoreham’s Rehoming Centre Manager Tracey Rae said:
“Jack has a lovely, sweet nature and is such a funny little character. We soon noticed how adorable it was when his teeth poked out like little vampire fangs! Whilst a fitting look for the Halloween season, we hope somebody can find it in their heart to love him all year round for the rest of his days.
“Despite his size he actually thrives when around much bigger dogs and he’ll need a home where they have a medium to large dog already as he looks to them for support and feels much more at ease in their presence.
“He will make a fantastic companion in the right home.”
The ideal owners for Jack would be a family who understand he can lack in confidence and are happy for him to build bonds at his own pace. If you’d enjoy his company and are happy to sit back and watch his cheeky antics, you could be perfect for him.
Jack will need an adult-only home without visiting children where he can do all of his favourites things like playing with his toys, enjoying a tasty treat and spending time with compatible dogs that are bigger than him – a calm and docile, larger canine companion in the home would be his dream. He’d love a doggy housemate that he can snuggle up with, who’d show him the ropes and he can rely on for reassurance.
A private garden for Jack to enjoy play and exercise with his new forever friend is essential as he’s still working on facing the bigger wide world. With time he will blossom into a lovely confident little character and his special someone will find great reward in gently guiding him while he makes small, but life changing achievements.
If Jack sounds like the perfect trick or treating partner for you and you’d like to show him that the world isn’t so scary this Halloween, please call the centre on 0300 303 0292.
