CHICO

Add to my favourites

Remove from my favourites

Meet our reformed character Chico! He is an absolute diamond in the ruff! He is so full of character and so happy to meet and play with people. He knows lots of commands (including a sequence of rare and entertaining ones!) and is very clever and responsive. He loves his toys and likes nothing more than a game of frisbee with the guys! Once his game of piggy-in-the-middle is over he just wants cuddles and will smother you with love and affection!
We know Chico very well here, but unfortunately he has been a bit misunderstood in the past. He has had a couple of stretches in kennels after being rehomed and returned via another one of our centres. Chico can be a challenge to handle around other dogs at times. Despite having lived with dogs in the past and had great meets with dogs at our centres, the stress of living life day in day out in kennels has had an effect on him. He will be vocal and wound up if meeting dogs when on a short lead. However, when meeting dogs on a long-line he is a different character entirely and regularly meets and goes off lead with dogs here at the centre.
We are looking for an experienced and active home to give this amazing character his real and final home for life. He will repay you in unswerving loyalty, loads of love and even more fun! Staff at our centre will give you all the help and guidance you need to look after Chico, both before and after adoption.
He could live with another dog in an experienced home. Ideally the existing dog would be a well socialised female or younger playful male. We would need to do several meets here at the centre to bond them but have found that once he makes a friend, it's a friend for life.
Chico has turned his life around, can you help him with his next step?!
