Hi Bensmum, A lucky wee dog to have you. Blessings to you for your wonderful work.
Presently my elderly mum is knitting dog coats to help get to a 'thousand' which end up for the SPCA. She is most happy if to give or knit for anyone needing a coat for their animal or the pattern, phone her 07 8554 364
Any spare wool you dont want would be really appreciated.

We live in the Wairarapa and own an adorable Chuachua pup. He is
pure bread with a short haired mother and a long haired father. He is black and white and is short haired himself. He is family friendly and would like to father some puppies now he is 18 months old. Is their a spunky girl out there in this region that would like to get friendly and become a Mum? Our man is quite a large Chuachua and really handsome.

Kia Ora!Our neighbour used to have a chuachua. It was the most adorable dog to women but it hated men. It used to scare the life out of me. It would always go for my ankles. Our neighbour used to make winter coats for it from old jumpers she'd buy in op-shops. I don't know how she used to make them but it was well cared for.
Hi there Rua S. Chuachuas can be quite territorial and very protective of their owners but with a bit of training they are so good companions. Our household has 4 adults and 2 children and he is great with everyone but will follow me everywhere. We also take him into town and to school to mix with all the children and people around so he is used to it. Goes to senior citizens each week to play cards (we play the cards not him) and he has his own chair there.
