Sweet, petite and ready to meet.
That’s how you can describe Lucky, aka, Lucks, aka, Little Man.
Actually, Lucky is a horrible name for this 12-pound Chihuahua cross, because he really has no luck at all.

Now in the great care of LEASH Animal Welfare Society, he has “been dealt an unlucky hand” in the first five years of his little life.
“He has seen the inside of a shelter, been rescued, adopted and recently returned at no fault of his own,” the agency says.
So now he’s looking for a forever home to call his own.
A bit about him.
This wee man enjoys walks just as much as snuggles, and can keep up on the trails. Don’t let his small size fool you. He loves playing with toys.
He’s a dream to care for. Unlike some other dogs we’ve featured in this column, Lucky is a breeze. His foster parents describe him as “the easiest dog ever.” Phewf.
This pup does have some minor sight issues. LEASH says the veterinary analysis is that he can see shadows and shapes without any issue — and it doesn’t slow him down at all. But because of the impairment, he can be fearful in new situations, so they want him to go to a household where there are no small children.
“We feel Lucky would thrive in a mature home where he can be the centre of all the attention,” they say.
