What sort of a dog is this?

Very small, with a body covered in dense, long soft sticking straight out brown/ginger hair but with short lighter hair on legs and face. If a dog was a wooly bear caterpillar it would look like this.

Any ideas?

Norfolk terrier? What is the face like?

Pekingnese? Or Brussels Griffon? Long or short legs?

OR a Pomeranian, maybe? <invested here> blush

Face a bit like a chihuahua. It could have been a Pomeranian puppy I suppose. Hadn't thought of that. It was just so gorgeous- it joined our picnic yesterday until it's embarrassed owners whisked it away with no time to ask questions!

Aww, poms can be really small I think. They are the sweetest little things - although I'm usually more of a big dog person!

No, I don't like small dogs either- but this one was so exactly like a wooly bear caterpillar. Or a miniature brown Gnasher. haven't been able to get it out of my mind..........

I just googled 'wooly bear caterpillar' and they have pink feet - so cute!

A red volpino italiano? Red german spitz klein?

Could also have been a cross, pom x chi seems to be quite a popular one.

I think it might have been a Pom/chi cross. I want that dog sooooo badly! I think I might have to go back to the beach, hang around and dog nap it!
