A dog which was taken to the vets to be put to sleep before being rescued by a previous owner is now looking for a new home. 

Pino the Jack Russell terrier/Chihuahua cross is up for adoption with East Coast Pet Rescue based in Great Yarmouth.  

This “sweet” dog was brought into the centre after his previous owner was alerted when his microchip was scanned. 

His then owner had taken him to the vets to be put down.  

Pino was taken in but his previous owner was unable to give him a permanent home so he was brought to the rescue. 

A spokesman from the rescue centre said: “He does have his issues which we would discuss with any potential owner however he is also the most loving, sweet dog.  

“He loves cuddles and once he trusts you is the most devoted dog. He is good with cats but is still very puppy like and wants to play.

“Sooty boy and Susiesoo are both aged around 5 years old and are looking for a home together.  

“They haven't had access to outside before so they would suit someone who is looking for indoor cats. 

“However, if you lived in a safe quiet area, it may be nice if they could be slowly introduced to a safe back garden under supervision.

“With lots of time, vet visits and TLC from his foster mum he is now doing so much better.  

“He does have feline calichivirus and this is something that may flare up from time to time.  

“However, we would always support his new owner with this if required. Sidney will also need an indoor only home where he is the only cat.”
