Cheap, easy dog sweater made from a sock~ x-small to medium size dog only.

My dog is a Chihuahua/ Jack Russel mix. We are having a cold front right now, but he doesn't have a sweater. What could I do to keep him warm when he has to go outside?

For this, I used socks my aunt got from the first class bag from Delta. I had already cut everything before I decided to post it. The socks were higher than your ankle, so I would use maybe a sock from a pair of men's socks that come up to their shin.

*Unfortunaly, this is only for a dog size x-small to medium, depending on how big your "medium" dog is.*
