Cid the Pomeranian

Splendid Cid is a two-year-old Pomeranian and his owners insist he's never naughty, only mischievous.

As a puppy he would get up to all sorts of antics, such as stealing potatoes from the veg trolley and leaving them in the hallway for his family to find.

He adores long walks in the fields and posing in his array of fancy bow ties for his Instagram page.

But with such a big personality in a tiny dog, pictures could come out with Cid looking either dashing or frazzled!

Reggie the French Bulldog

Reggie the French Bulldog is still a puppy at just eight-months-old.

This pup loves the spotlight, acting as the perfect model for his families Instagram account where he dresses up from his pawdrobe. His owners say he's such a poser.

And like any true diva, he loves a good lie in until 11am to make sure he gets every drop of beauty sleep possible.

Sooty the Netherland Dwarf

Sooty is a one-year-old Netherland Dwarf rabbit which, fun fact, can be trained in a similar way to cats and dogs.

Sadly for Sooty, he was previously bought during lockdown and was soon left alone in his hutch with no food or fresh water all day after his owners lost interest.

WATCH: Sooty enjoy his dirt box

So when his new owners adopted this adorable bunny and gave him a digging box, Sooty thought all his Christmases had come at once.

His owners say he loves to play around in the mud or with his toys and is gentlest soul.

Luna and Zeus the Dogue De Bordeaux

Though these two Dogue de Bordeauxs' both enjoy a nap after their long runs on the beach and look almost identical, their in personalities couldn't be more different.

Poor Zeus, who is three-years-old, was rescued at a year-and-a-half ago after he was abused and mistreated by previous owners.

Now, he sits in cupboards when he is scared - and is usually scared of everything. But his new family take great care of him.

Luna on the other hand, who is just over one-year-old has no concept of personal space when it comes to sitting with her beloved family and thinks she's a chihuahua. Sometimes she even sits like a person.

Head-to-head #3

Poppy the Duprasi

Poppy the Duprasi

Duprasi are is a type of rodent, also know as the fat-tailed gerbil.

Poppy's owners rescued her in February when she was no longer wanted - left underweight with overgrown bottom teeth and missing top teeth.

But since getting treatment with her new family, Poppy is doing better than ever, gaining lots of weight eating all her favourite things.

The two-year-old gerbil loves blueberries the most and running on her wheel all night long.

While Phoebe has food and treats on her mind constantly, Prudence isn't happy unless she's getting attention 24/7.

The pair are a cross-breed between Jack Russel Terriers and Chihuahuas, the tiniest most energetic breed out there.

Razor the Jack Russel Cain Terrier

Razor is a 14-year-old cross between a cain terrier and a Jack Russel terrier.

So either a Jack Cain or Cain Russel - whichever one sounds closer in 'coolness' to John Wick or Jack Reacher?

As an absolute foodie, Razor will do anything for a biscuit.

At 14, he's past the age of chasing down pheasants in the garden, but will instead spend his time sun bathing and digging up the vegetable patch.

Florence the Maine Coon

Flourence is a two and a half-year-old solid blue Maine Coon - meaning her fur is a rich grey colour.

Her owner says she has the sweetest personality and is best friends with their miniature dachshund Milo, who she loves to play with and wash.

Main Coons are a larger cat breed native to North America where they are valued for their incredible hunting abilities.

And she puts these skills to good use, as Florence goes crazy when she sees a fly and has to chase it down - even sometimes eating it.
