Five-year-old Blewit is an adorable mix of what looks to be poodle and Shih Tzu. At just under 10 kg, he’s portable, and since he loves to be held, he won’t weigh you down all that much. He’ll grow on you quickly, with his charming way of prancing by your side, tail up, happy and trying hard to catch your eye. No one gave Blewit so much as a glance before he was rescued from a filthy hellhole of a place he shared with some 30 other dogs. His coat is silky and doesn’t shed much, so he’s a great choice for allergy sufferers. He’d make a great dog for first-time owners and, though we may be biased, we heartily believe Blewit is nothing to sniff at!
