Question Mark Icon



Cheeky Chico is an active, playful and fun loving chap. He loves to be out and about, taking in all the smells and doing zoomies in the park! He is a social boy and enjoys meeting and interacting with other dogs but still needs to learn when it's time to move away at points and that he doesn't need to approach every one he sees! He is friendly and affectionate with people and enjoys a fuss but has got a sensitive side to him so will need an owner who will be able to read his body language and give him space when needed. Chico is a delightful character who thrives off having company and learning new things. He is looking for an equally active owner who will have the time, patience and commitment to continue with his training and socialisation. Chico will be a fabulous, loyal and loving companion for the right match.

Other Notes

Chico could live in flat with direct access to an enclosed garden. He can be vocal at times so this should be taken into consideration. He can become a bit stressed when left so is looking for a home where there will be someone around most of the time, building up to 1-2 hours on occasion. Due to his nervous nature at times, he would not be suitable to live with young children but could live with sensible teenagers of 14+ providing they have lived with a dog before and will give him space when needed. He could potentially live with another, well behaved, calm dog and could possibly live with a dog confident cat after a slow, careful introduction. Chico has been neutered, microchipped, vaccinated and is up to date with flea and worming treatments. He has also been medically and behaviourally assessed.
