UPDATE.......ITS BACK. Rocko has been a right little monster the last few days biting so he has been returned. If the worse comes to the worse he will have to stay with us. I am having his anal glands checked again as it is common with theses sort of dogs. Is there anyone up for the challenge to foster or re-home him that understands these dogs. He can be a lovely little boy in between his mood swings.
VERY SPECIAL HOME NEEDED FOR ROCKO THE CHIHUAHUA. This little 3 year old needs a home where there are no children and preferably no other pets so he can have a one to one relationship. He can be the sweetest boy out, when he is getting his own way, and then can turn really nasty. He has had a full vet check and there is nothing physically wrong with him, He has been thoroughly spoilt in one of his homes and wants his own way all the time. We have been working with him and he is so much better, has not turned for quite a while, but you get the look. If he did snap he could not do much harm as he has the worse overshot jaw I have ever seen so the top teeth have nothing to hit against. Some rescues would have him PTS but we feel he deserves a chance as he is such a happy little thing most of the time.
All of the dogs that come through our doors go through a period of assessment and medical treatment as required, this will enable us to discuss with you the current needs of the dog.
By default the dog will be:
- Assessed by our Vet
- Wormed, treated for flees.
- (where necessary) on appropriate medication.
For guidance only:
We advise you spend time with the dog. Please be aware that it's personality will change over time as they/you interact.
You will be asked to complete a pre adoption/home check form.
When we have received this we will make contact with you and arrange a home visit, where we will verify your home check paperwork.
You will then be asked to complete the adoption paper work and you will need to sign the declaration to say that you accept the terms and conditions.
If at any stage in the adoption process, we feel that the situation is not right for our dog, you may be turned down. We don't have regimented rules on what homes are suitable.
If you decide to adopt one of our dogs we ask for an adoption fee of £175 - £200 (to cover some of our costs), this depends on the age and breed of the dog.
Sometimes we have older dogs looking for homes which we lovingly call our ‘doggy pensioners’ and for these dogs we ask for a reasonable donation. Older dogs make wonderful pets.
