This little man is “Baby Groot”, he is 3 year old Yorkie cross Chihuahua.
Also known as a “Chorkie” if you want to use the designer term :).
Groot is a very interdependent soul, he is not one for cuddles or being picked up and does enjoy his own space.
Baby Groot will need to maintain a gentle social life due to a problem with his luxating patella.
This will need to be managed with gentle walks and to always maintain his weight, making sure his waist line is in good form at all times.
At the moment he has managed well, he will however need regular vet checks to monitor this and may require treatment if the vet can see any change that will affect his mobility.
Due to this being a pre-existing condition, insurance will not cover the cost of any treatment.
We feel a home that is quiet and calm will suit his needs.
He will require time for any new people to get to know him and build a bond.
A home with a calm neutered dog may be a possibility based on introductions at the Dogs Home.
He will require an adult only home but could possibly live with a independent cat, again this will based on an introduction.
