Have you got place in your heart and home for a little one? I don’t take up much room and am generally quiet and like to curl up on the sofa next to you. I am about 3 to 4 years old, well trained, not destructive, loyal and fine with other dogs no matter what size. If I was to live with another, it would be nice to have another Chihuahua or small dog but I am perfectly fine being the only dog. I don’t mind if there is a cat living with us so long as it’s used to dogs. I am not a yappy dog but will alert you to any callers.
I can be wary of some newcomers and bark at them so you will need to be patient with me and introduce people to me slowly. I would prefer a quiet household where people are not always coming and going. I don’t really like little children who run ‘wildly’ and I have nipped them to keep them in order so if you have any visiting it would be best if they were put in a baby crate! Oh no, that would be me I guess! But it’s not a problem as I’m used to sleeping in a dog crate and sometimes I prefer my foster mum’s cat crate which is small and cosy.
I enjoy my walks with my 2 step brother and sister dogs and although they are much bigger than me, I can keep up and often walk for over an hour. I am equally happy just with a couple of short walks or the garden or you could take me out in the car. I walk well on the lead and can be trusted to return when off the lead. I enjoy my snooze afterwards and I can be left alone for a few hours with no problem so long as you fuss me on your return. I may take a couple of weeks to settle in but I am very adaptable, and, given time to get into your routine, will give you lots of unconditional love and affection.
Microchipped, flea and worm treatment given and vaccinations up to date. Neutering to be arranged by the charity.
Yorkshire Rose Dog Rescue are based in Yorkshire and their main aim is to secure the welfare of and care for any dogs that need our help. They don’t use kennels, all of their dogs are cared for in foster homes, with families, often with other pets, which gives them the opportunity to get to know and assess the dogs fully before rehoming them. All of their dogs will be microchipped, vaccinated, flead, wormed and neutered before rehoming, and all prospective adoptive homes will be checked by one of their team to ensure the perfect match between dog and humans is made.
