Charlie. 6 yr old Chihuahua

The minimum adoption donation for Charlie is £165.



Charlie is currently undergoing a 14 day assessment and will be ready for rehoming from 04/05/17.  Applications are welcome during the assessment period.

Charlie is a typical chihuahua, he is a real dog in a small package, he's not a handbag dog, he loves his walks and is starting to play with toys. He does love to curl up on a lap for a snooze, but only on his own terms and he can be a little grumpy if he's startled from his sleep.

Charlie will need his new owner to understand that his life has been full of changes recently and he will need to be given time and space to trust and develop bonds.

Charlie has only been here for a little over 24 hours but he's a;ready showing potential to be a great little dog for someone who is willing to give hims the love and stability he needs.

Charlie is a little underweight and has a tendency to gulp his food so I've been spacing it out not to overload his little stomach. He eats next to my own two dogs and shows no possessive or guarding behaviours.


Please put in an application in the first instance if you are interested in Charlie. Approved applications will be home checked.

Charlie is gaining in confidence daily and learning to trust. Today he had a bath and his nails trimmed and he sat there like a little gent allowing me to do hold his little paws.

Charlie is definitely going to need an adult only home and someone who is willing to work with him to build his trust but the rewards will be huge; seeing him change and grow in confidence.

This little lad is turning out to be a loyal companion.
He still needs gentle handling and to take his own time to trust but when he does he'll be a friend for life.
