Sooty – Yorkshire Terrier

Description

Sooty came into RAIN’s care in a terrible state.  His coat was all neglected – and now he needs someone that will really give him lots of love and care and grooming – as yorkies, need to be groomed regularly and clipped and he will need to be regularly flead too.
Things scared him, when he first came in – loud noises and bangs terrified him – he’s had a scary time lately.
He had his vet check and all his ears – eyes – heart – teeth etc were fine but due to him being bitten to death by fleas she gave him an antibiotic injection.  He’s recently been neutered now and on anti-biotics to settle down his sore skin after the neglect – so he’s on his way to recovery and along with his clean bill of health and his groom – he will soon be looking ship shape.
We have been told he’s around 5 years old (August) he now has a lovely coat and really coming around and wanting to play.  - he loves squeaky toys and is currently in foster with Mrs Nix and family living with other dogs and the family.
We think the best home for him would be perhaps on his own or a really laid back dog or even perhaps one that will play but know when to stop so he doesn’t get over het up as he is now starting to want to play with Toby.  He doesn’t want to be left for long as he hates being left and prefers someone with him although I don’t think it’s separation anxiety just confidence.
We are looking for someone that is used to terriers natures – barky – a bit grumbly – do things on their own terms and at their  own pace - well little dog syndrome really.
He’s also only going to go to a totally child free family – no sudden eratic jerky noises or movements as he’s terrified of them and jumps at them for a snip if they make him jump.
He loves walks – pulls quite a bit and loves to sniff but really quite energetic so someone that loves walking would be great.  He seems good with all dogs we have met - big and small although he loves to mount them too but hopefully will calm down in a few months due to castration… Hopefully
Sooty has a rehoming fee of £200.00 and comes with our premium adoption package
