Some much-needed R&R with our incredible fosterers
Little Little Rex absolutely loved having Carol’s undivided attention and some extra room to potter about in a comfy home. Meanwhile, the search started for a new owner who could give him the easy-going life he needed in his winter years.
After looking through our long list of hopeful dog owners, it was clear he ticked a lot of people’s boxes in what you’d want in a dog! And that was just the case for retirees Sylvia, Simon and their pampered little dog, Gucci. These devoted pet parents were looking for an older canine companion who would get on with their four-legged friend.
Would Little Little Rex win over exacting Gucci?
From the moment Little Little Rex trotted into the famous Meeting Pen, we could see that it wasn’t the people he would have to win over, but Gucci! The pair were introduced and Little Little Rex was super excited to make a new friend, while Gucci didn’t seem as enthusiastic – even letting off a few annoyed woofs.
But a walk around the site together helped Gucci relax with her new friend and Sylvia seemed very confident that they would hit it off. And she could see that Gucci could learn a thing or two about good manners from Little Little Rex!
Before long, Sylvia and Simon made it official and adopted him. She marked the beginning of his fresh start with a new name – Little Mix – as it was similar but still less of a mouthful than his original name. Not long after Sylvia and Simon adopted Little Mix, we received this wonderful update and it was music to our ears!
