Meet Saxon!

Last summer we welcomed five Chihuahuas into the kennels and just one, our little Saxon, remains.

Saxon is a 7-year-old, white-coloured, male Chihuahua. He is affectionate, cheeky and loving; he just loves treats, and he adores being on someone’s lap for a cuddle. He can be a bit of a diva and as is common with his breed, he has nipped a few times in the past when he has felt frightened.

 

Again, common with teeny (but mighty) Chihuahuas, he can be quite yappy, particularly when other dogs walk past his kennel. Saxon is very food driven and we are finding that we can use treats to distract him, and this is really helping with his behaviour. 

We are looking for a peaceful, adult-only home for Saxon. Someone with experience of Chihuahuas would be ideal. Although Saxon isn't cat-friendly, he could live with other, confident Chihuahuas.

 

We will offer full behavioural support for Saxon’s initial settling in period, and we are confident that once he feels safe and secure in his forever home, his diva tendencies will settle.

ADOPTION PROCESS

 

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 home to meet the members of the household and to ensure that the environment is safe.

 

Step 6:

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