Canine Count Dracula seeking a new home this Halloween

Dogs Trust Shoreham is playing host to an adorable resident whose teeth make him look like a vampire.

This Halloween, three-year old Chihuahua Cross Boston Terrier, Jack who has two noticeable fangs protruding from his bottom jaw is hoping to find his forever home.

According to staff at the rehoming centre, 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 up 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 Raw, 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 that 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 rehoming centre advise that the ideal owners for Jack would be a family who understand his low confidence and are happy for him to build bonds at his own pace.

Jack will need an adult only home without visiting children where he can do all of his favourite 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.

The pint size pooch would love a doggy housemate that he can snuggle up with, who’d show him the ropes and he can rely on for reassurance.
