Spike is an 18 week old Chihuahua. He is a very sensitive chap who is looking for a quiet home to help him gently gain confidence. Spike must live with another dog/dogs as he needs the support of a steady friend when he is out and about. Due to his worried nature, at the moment, he is looking for an adult only home.
Spike will need a bit more help with his housetraining but is a good traveller. He is keen to learn and positive reinforcement is helping him to learn about the world and build his confidence. However, Spike's new owner will need to be able to very slowly introduce him to the world at a level he can cope with, and not flood him. They will need to be able to read when he isn't coping and give him some space. New owners will be given support on his training by the staff at the centre to help ensure he grows up to be a happy adult.
Spike is still a puppy and when he does find his feet he is a playful and very sweet chap. He has lots of potential in the right home.
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.
