Mo Chara Animal Rescue: Tiny Tessie

As Bruce Springsteen says “From small things, big things one day come…” and I might just be the tiny thing that will bring huge fun to your life! I'm Tessie. I'm a miniature Terrier cross but my teeny size doesn't mean that I don’t have a huge heart!
I came from the pound with the other little dogs like Tonto and Luis. They have gone to their new homes now and although I miss them, I have made new friends at the kennels. My friendly nature means I socialise well with other dogs and enjoy their company. I would love to have a brother or sister doggy to play with in my new home – forever friend who won't leave after just a few weeks like my other friends.

I can be a little timid and shy when people meet me first but after a short while I will be your best friend - specially if you take me for a walk. I love walks. I'm very gentle on my lead and enjoy a nice stroll. I also like to play with my toys and chase a ball. My legs might be little but I can run around and play just like the bigger dogs!

It's not so bad here. I have plenty of food, I get to make new friends, people come to walk us and play with us and I have a nice jacket to keep me warm but I would love to find my new home. Somewhere I could call my own with a family to belong to and a nice soft bed by the fire or a chair to curl up on. A place where I can feel safe, that's out of the cold – perhaps with a teddy bear to cuddle.

I love visitors, and would love to meet you too. If you saw how small I really am I'm sure you'd see I wouldn't take up too much space in your house – and yet, I could still fill your home with joy.
