Jok has been to our Vet and we believe he is about 8 years of age. He was born with a quite badly deformed mouth and teeth structure which was never corrected. Now we have had several teeth removed which were causing a lot of his problems. He has been desexed, microchipped and immunized.
Jok is a smooth coat pure Chihuahua and is wonderfully toilet trained (hangs on for hours to be let outside!) He is fairly scared still and will now "allow" me to pat him on his head, but he is quite happy to "bury" himself in a snuggle blanket and sleep until you mention "food"!
He is a beautiful little guy and, I would say, sadly neglected and unloved most of his life. He will be looking for a quiet home with plenty of warmth.
Mid July 2010. Jok has now been with us for a few weeks and is allowing more contact and even wants to be picked up and given a cuddle. We are transferring him to "In our Care" page but if a good samaritan would like to give him a home, he will be available.
Jok loves his new bed and snuggly blankets! He did not like the little pink coat though!


  1. Hi, I thought of Paddy, but once the photos are listed and you see his little face another name might suit him. With all the love and care that you give them he might not be so scared. All the best, Elizabeth.

  2. Some help for you if you need to name him:
    Dog names

  3. Thank goodness you are here for tiny tots like Jok!
    Also, Rita, I have teeny hand-knitted jumper to fit a small Chi. Do you need it? If so, would Jok be offended wearing a pink girlie doggie coat? Lol.

  4. I am sure Jok won't mind if his coat is pink!
    He rolls himself up in his blanket and doona - takes him about fifteen minutes to get comfy!!

  5. How is it possible to own a chihuahua and not love them?
