This tiny little "dog" was found in August 2022 by regular volunteers. Apparently he had been dumped with 4 others after their owners left the country. He came to us scared and confused.
I (Emma) was the first person to take him from the volunteer and it was apparently love at first site. For both of us. We rescued 100's of dogs but for some reason this little Ratty found himself joining our pack as his permanent home.
Most of our resident finca dogs are here because they are old, sick, unwanted or complicated.
But this little thing sneaked his way in with his cocky attitude and needy ways. As he was so scared when he arrived he latched on immediately as my shadow. It was impossible to even go the the toilet without him. I stood on him multiple times a day and woke up with him asleep on my neck every night.
This is where he spent ever night whilst recovering from his castration. Planning to be up for adoption as soon as he was recovered. However, now this is where his permanent spot is as I can’t imagine to have his pillow empty now.
I had loosely planned to adopt another personal dog at some point to go on long walks or swimming with. A tiny cat-dog was not the plan! However the heart does what the heart does for both of us and we are very happy to have welcomed him to the finca family. Luckily Iggy loves him and welcomes him in our mini pack.
