Breed: Basset Hound
Age: 9 years old. He’ll be 10 in October! Getting old now…that’s like a million in dog years.
Size: around 28 or 29kg. In other words overweight. He was up to 34kg so he has lost quite a bit.
Allergies: grass, dust, dust mites & his own dandruff
Nicknames: Chiefy, Chiefy Chops, Cheeky Chops, Fat Dog.
History: we bought him as a puppy from a breeder. It’s something I’d never do again. They were also breeding German Shepards & West Highland Terriers.
Dogs? No & Yes! He tends to be nervous of them mostly. He can play with other dogs but doesn’t necessarily want to.
Cats? No but before lady came along he was terrified of them. She makes him braver.
Kids? Yes fine. Any human who gives him attention is acceptable.
Likes: FOOD, treats, food, did I mention food? His red soft bone toy, covering himself in blankets, rubs and attention of any kind!
Breed: Jack Russell
Age: 7 years old. We got her when she was roughly 1 & a half years old.
Size: around 8 or 9kg. Also overweight but not by too much.
Colouring: black & white
Allergies: none that we know of.
Nicknames: Lady Lumps, Lady Girl, Mouse Face.
History: She turned up at the Pitch & Putt club my Mam plays in & when no1 claimed her, my Mam brought her home. We brought her to the vets and she wasn’t microchipped. We had no intention of keeping her but she won us over.
Cats? No, she despises them!
Kids? Yes fine. She loves women and kids but has to come around to men & sometimes she never does.
Likes: Treats, licking people’s faces, climbing up on top of Chief for a snooze and long walks.
