15-3-19 - Dinky is a very small little lad who has come from a breeder and was shaved short before he arrived here. He like many other chihuahuas has learnt that he can control people and their big scary hands by being stroppy and and snippy with them. If a hand goes to grab him and it frightens him he has learnt that with an impressive display of bravado and bad language that hand will retreat and leave him be. As a result this little chap can appear to be unpredictable but we will work with him, showing him kindness and consistency. Dinky walks on a lead and will need an experienced home to live in. He takes a while to be picked up and needs to be approached slowly, Dinky isn't a scared dog, hes just learnt how to do things the wrong way. This can be worked on so that with time, patience and skill he will understand that life is far better with love and kindness and he can then relax, give his trust and we will be very grateful to not have to be on guard all the time.This lovely little fellow isn't for everyone - he needs an adult only home with someone experienced and who understands how Dinky is feeling and is prepared to be consistent, fair and kind at all times to help him. Dink needs another small dog to learn housetraining from and see that the world isnt as scary as he thought

Dinky is a special boy, as mentioned in previous update, he can be misunderstood as being aggressive but isn't, after a short while and patience,he is fine with being stroked and picked up, typical chi bravado,showing how strong he can be,but he's a little softy. He would go much better in a adult home and with another dog to show him the way, having limited socialisation in the past hasnt done anything for him. He is wonderful though, can you find it in your heart to give this beautiful chi his forever home


Dinkys outside appearances suit his name - he really is a tiny boy. However, his character definitely does not! He’s a very fun boy to deal with as he’s full of surprises. Dinky walks nicely on the lead, and is excited to see everything. He loved going on a walk earlier to see the horses, cats and to get in my car - which he jumped in himself! He didn’t have any issues with the cats or horses either, which is brilliant for those who might have other animals.
He’s a patient boy with most things, however, you do need to be careful around dinner time. He loves his food SO much that he gets a little protective over his bowl. But once it’s all gone, you can take the bowl away with no issues. Dinky would make a lovely companion for anyone who has enough time to give him lots of cuddles and also walks

Hi, Since arriving here last Sunday Dinky has proved to be a really happy and lovable little chap. Fitting in with the others here has been no problem at all, he has fallen in with routine here very quickly and is already clean in the house. Meal times have been a lot easier than expected, he's got the idea of how we do things an knows where he gets his food. When it comes to treats Dinky is polite and takes his turn with all the others. He walks happily on the lead and is happy to meet other people and dogs. This Sunday we will be going to the beach so we will see how he gets on there.

PLEASE NOTE: We nearly always home dogs who have come from breeders where there is ALREADY A RESIDENT DOG living in the house. They have usually never lived in a house before and are only used to canine company. They usually get their confidence and learn faster with another dog to copy from. This also helps with house training and learning how to walk on a lead. They will make lovely pets but do need a lot of love, time and patience. If the ex breeding dog you are interested in can be an only dog it will say so in its write up. Please read our information on ADOPTING EX-BREEDING DOGS before you apply.

The adoption fee for an adult dog (6 months and over) is £220 and for a puppy is £250, However if the dog has a passport you will be given this when you adopt and we ask for a further £20 to help us buy a passport for another dog. You will find a break down of what the adoption fee covers under our Adoption Procedures (see link below) If your application is successful you will be home checked and you, all members of your family and any dog(s) who will be living with the dog MUST come to meet the dog you want to adopt. All our dogs are micro-chipped, have had at least their first inoculation and are spayed/neutered unless there is a medical reason for not doing so. You must have a safe means of transporting the dog home in a crate or if this is not possible please discuss with Many Tears or the Fosterer when your application is being processed.

Please read our adoption procedures before applying and then complete the adoption form.
