10 & 18 years old

Breed: Chihuahua & Patterdale X
Size: Small
Gender: Male & Female

​Meet Ollie & Pippa!

10 year old Ollie the Chihuahua and 18 year old Patterdale Cross Pippa arrived into our care as their owner was very sadly unable to look after them anymore. These two adorable "babies" are totally devoted to each other, so they absolutely must be rehomed together.​

We are looking for a loving, caring and compassionate retirement home for this very special twosome. Despite their ages, they are both in great health and for such an old lady, Pippa is amazingly sprightly! They are very friendly, and love nothing more than a nice lap to curl up on.

It takes a special type of person to take on a senior rescue dog, but Ollie and Pippa promise to shower you with adoration and affection for the rest of their days if you'll take a chance of them both.

Our inseparable besties cannot be rehomed with other dogs, cats or children, and a quiet, peaceful environment is essential.

Apply to adopt Ollie & Pippa

If you would like to register your interest in adopting Ollie and Pippa, 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.
