How the rehoming process works:-
When a dog comes to us, they may be traumatized, sick, confused and malnourished. Our priority is to ensure the health and well being of the little dog and our first port of call is a vet.
Here, we will discuss the rehoming needs of the dog and whether the dog needs any further rehabilitation. At this point, a programme of care is arranged and we then place them in a safe foster home.
This allows the dog some time to settle and for us to care for the dog and get them back to tip top health. Our rehoming team assess each dog individually and this time really allows us to get to know the dog, the personality, likes and dislikes.
Once this process is complete and we feel the dog is ready for a new home, we will put his/her profile on our rehoming page.
At this point, we invite people to register their interest to adopt the dog. We usually have a large number of applications for each dog.
It is not possible for us to reply to each application individually so we will keep you all updated on facebook and on the website.
Providing we have your completed adoption form, we will contact any prospective applicants to discuss your suitability and circumstances. We may then arrange for a home check.
PLEASE APPLY FOR OUR DOGS BY APPLICATION FORM AND NOT THROUGH FACEBOOK MESSAGES.

Matching the right owner for a dog is our priority. The dogs often have special needs and may have ongoing behavioural or medical issues that will need a specific management.
This may not always be the dog for you, but our priority is making sure we find the right home for our dogs and the right dog for your home!
We are a very small personal rescue, where every dog is currently collected by us, kept and fostered within our 'Dizzy rescue family.' We are a small team who between us have over 50+ years of dog ownership and 20+ years of Chihuahua ownership.
