Boycie is a 5 year old Chihuahua cross. He is a sensitive boy and can be worried by new people and intense handling. This means he can sometimes reactive negatively when he becomes overwhelmed. Once he knows you he is a sweet and playful chap who enjoys playing with toys and going for walks. He does get on with other dogs but isn't keen on boisterous dogs. He may be able to live with another dog if it is small and will understand when he needs some space.
Boycie will need is adopters to visit the centre a few times for to get to know and trust them and a slow introduction to the home. He will benefit from an owner who has experience of dogs and working with worried dogs. He will need an adult home. Although Boycie will need a little more help than most dogs to settle into his new home, he will be very worth the effort.
Whenever dogs comes into our care they are assessed before they are adopted. This is because the majority of our dogs come from Local Authority pounds and with little or no previous history. This initial assessment period allows us to assess temperament, personality and the best match for a new home. We do not work on a first come first served basis but always strive to find the ideal home for each dog.
All Hope Rescue dogs are neutered, vaccinated, wormed, flea treated and microchipped prior to adoption. A homecheck is required, and you will need to come along to the centre to meet the dog with your own dog(s) and family. Our adoption fee is £200.
