​Meet Chico!


This handsome lurcher is still just a littl’un. At one year’s old, he’s very much learning the ropes but he’s still not sure about how to behave around other dogs. His new owner will need to help him to learn vital social skills with his fellow four-legged friends but we’re sure that he’ll take to it like a duck to water once he’s shown the way.


Cheeky Chico loves a fuss, and isn’t keen on being separated from his human buddies. He’s great with children and he’s happiest when he’s surrounded by friendly people. He’s definitely one for copious strokes and belly rubs!


A typical lurcher, he also loves bounding around at incredible speed and grace after balls, but he doesn’t seem to be very prey-driven. Even so, he cannot be rehomed with cats.


Chico told us that his ideal home would be a lovely, active family with plenty of time to help him with his training and development. Due to his size and strength, we aren't able to rehome Chico with young children. Although he thinks he’d like to get to know other dogs one day, he’d really rather be an only pet so he can have all the love for himself 😉

Apply to adopt Chico

If you would like to register your interest in adopting Chico, please complete your details below and we'll send you a detailed adopter enquiry form by e-mail.



We have a number of animals in our care. Most are homeless through no fault of their own and are looking for furever homes and owners who can give them the love and attention they deserve.


Please take a few moments to familiarise yourself with our adoption process:


Step 1:     

The animal is admitted into our care, and assessed by our team.

Step 2:     

The animal is examined by a vet, who treats any ailments or injuries.

Step 3:     

The appropriate team leader will liaise with the potential adopter to get to know them and assess whether they are a potential purr-fect match.

Step 4:     

The potential new owners meet the animal, and decide if they want to adopt. New owners may be asked to visit the animal several times before the adoption takes place.

Step 5:     

A pre-adoption home visit will then be made to new owners premises to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is safe and right.

Step 6:     

If the visit goes well, you will be asked to collect the animal and for an adoption donation (amount on request) and to sign an agreement to care for the pet with a commitment to return them to us if they can't continue to do so.
