My name is Pelucchi, that is Italian for Blanket Fluff, pronounced Pelookey not chee!
I was born in Bracknell and moved to Maidenhead when I was 10 weeks old. I turned 7 at the end of August 2017.
In July 2016 I had a dream and my dream was to be a firefighter, the cutest firefighter on three paws!
I am a tripawd Yorkie but please don’t feel sorry for me. My poorly paw was badly formed, it caused me lots of pain and was of no use to me unless the PA asked me to give her my paw! When I was 6 months old my Vet amputated my front left leg.
After a few weeks of recovery I was a changed boy, the world was my oyster so to bark!
I has completed 2 Maidenhead Boundary walks for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, put my manliness aside and strutted my stuff in pink on a 5km Race for Life and I has walked many other charity walks on my 3 paws! I still love visiting my Vet and always get lots of cuddles from my nurses!
I has posed in the buff for Dogs Today Magazine, gracing the front cover for all to see across the country. I has my own social media accounts and I tries my bestest to make peoples smile.
In July 2016 I did get my very own Firefighter’s Uniform as I loves playing with the hosepipe in the garden. I sent a photo to my local Fire Station of Maidenhead and to the Royal Berkshire Fire and Rescue Service to ask if they had any jobs available for a strapping young firefighter like me. Well to my surprise they did and I was invited to the station for an interview followed by some firefighter assessments. I passed them all with flying colours … obviously!
My career as the Barkshire Firefighter began … I may be a little dog with a dream, ambition and drive! I may be small and only have 3 paws but this doesn't hold me back.
