Trixie Needs a Home


Meet Trixie. This gorgeous little 8 month old Yorkshire Terrier was handed over to Dogs Trust. Her hair was so matted that her tail was stuck to her legs and she couldn’t even wag it.

Her eyesight was also impaired due to a huge lump of matted hair above her left eye and she couldn’t go to the toilet properly.

Now she has had a hair cut and her tail never stops wagging.

Trixie before and after

At just 2.1kg, an incredible 0.2kg of hair was carefully removed by Canine Carers at the Dogs Trust Denton Rehoming Centre.

She is a gorgeous, lively little thing who loves a cuddle. She has made lots of doggie friends and now she just needs to have the opportunity to build her confidence.

Dogs Trust are looking forward to finding her a wonderful family who she can happily spend the rest of her life with.

Trixie will thrive living at the heart of a loving family. She can live with children over the age of eleven.

This little dog has touched my heart, sadly I live down in East Sussex. This horrible treatment of such a beautiful little dog make's me so sad...has she found a home yet?

Would happily take in Trinity. Would she be OK with a 13 year old cat?
