Meet Ruffy!

Dachshund (Miniature) 
Hampshire, South East

Ruffy is a handsome long haired miniature Dachshund dog model. This delightful little dog model takes commands well and boasts a fantastic attitude. He is always keen to please and is excellent on set; bad behaviour will not be an issue with this dog model! This delightful bit of animal talent brings a welcome energy but is also calm when he needs to be.

This exceptional talent has great basic training.  You can see from his trick list that little Ruffy boasts impressive basic training and he has even earned his Bronze Kennel Club Good Behaviour Award. Ruffington is no stranger to the camera and is unfazed by the hustle and bustle of a busy set. He is a highly toy-motivated boy and will do anything for his favourite tennis ball. He is also wonderful with children, and will allow them to gently play with him and pet him.

He has also brushed shoulders with other high-profile individuals like Ricky Gervais, Brian May, and Noel Gallagher at charity meet and greets.

Recently, Ruffy and brother Wiggy both featured on London Live in a Nutriment Commercial. They were also handled on television by Marc the Vet during a demonstration explaining how to examine your dog for health issues. Both dog models were exceptionally well-behaved and sat happily as Marc handled them.

Most recently, Ruffy and Wiggy starred in a television commercial for Hindquarters; a dog clothing and accessory label. The two wore gorgeous pet clothing and accessories and were the stand-out bits of animal talent on the shoot.
