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.
At this point, a programme of care is arranged and the dog is kept in foster within our DCR family team. During foster care, we can assess the dog’s rehabilitation requirements and get to know the dog’s personality and rehoming needs.
ONLY 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.
APPLYING FOR A PARTICULAR DOG:
We will announced on the website and facebook that a particular dog is AVAILABLE TO REHOME
You can then apply to adopt a particular dog by filling in an application form.

NO APPLICATION FORMS OR ENQUIRIES WILL BE ACCEPTED FOR ANY DOGS UNTIL THEY ARE ADVERTISED AS ‘AVAILABLE TO REHOME’
WE DO NOT REGISTER INTEREST / RESERVE DOGS / PUT YOU ON A WAITING LIST.
DUE TO THE HIGH NUMBER OF APPLICATIONS FOR EACH DOG, WE ARE UNABLE TO REPLY INDIVIDUALLY TO APPLICANTS.

PROSPECTIVE OWNERS WILL BE CONTACTED DIRECTLY BY PHONE TO DISCUSS MORE DETAILS AND ARRANGE HOME VISITS.
DO NOT APPLY FOR A DOG THROUGH FACEBOOK OR MESSENGER

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.
