Lovely sweetheart CHICO , a young 18 month old lad of medium size, with a black and white chest, short silky coat.
Poor baby Chico was rescued when he was just a young puppy, on the edge of a road, injured and with the last part of his right hind leg missing and in great distress.
We don’t know what happened, but probably a car accident.
Chico was taken into our care, and the wound healed well, without surgery.
Now he is the most healthy, happy and affectionate dog you can imagine!
And he is able to run like a rocket!!!
As all dogs with awful past life, he is little bit timid, a bit afraid of people especially with unknown persons, or in a new environment that he dosnt know, but he is also very smart and he quickly learns to trust.
Chico is a very affectionate dog as he gets to know you, so loving and full of life.
Very friendly with others dogs and cats.
Chico is able to walk on lead, but he loves to run!
Of course, he needs to walk on lead, he is not trained to recall, as usual recall is something that has be gained from bonding and trust, and may not happen in a few weeks, especially with a dog who had such an awful experience.
The best solution is secure fenced dog field where he can run free and safe, he will surprise you! And in this safe environment, he can be trained to a recall because if he gets spooked, he runs away, and in this case it’s impossible to take him back.
He can live with cats
His Best Points :
Foster Report :
Despite his past, Chico is very well behaved, he is very nice and gentle dog, very affectionate and loving, very playful, the best for him would be a family with another doggie to play with.
He likes human contact, he is timid at the beginning, but when he trusts, he is very affectionate and loves be caressed and pampered, he will need someone around for most of the day whilst he settles in.
Chico is afraid of loud noise, the best for him would be a quiet environment, a safe garden and another dog to play with!
Could you offer a loving home to this extra- special doggie?
You will have a great super-affectionate dog!

Adopting A DogWatch UK Rescue Dog
Before being adopted, dogs will have been vaccinated, wormed and treated for fleas.
If old enough they will have been neutered, if too young the new owners will need to ensure this is done.
All dogs are microchipped
All new owners can apply for 4 weeks Pet Insurance FREE, to apply please ask us for the pamphlet, our charity reference number is 1400005179.
All new owners will need to change their new dogs microchip information to their contact details. This costs £17. If you would like us to arrange this for you, at a reduced rate of £7.20, we will ask you to do a bank transfer to allow us to register the change.
For Rescue Dogs coming from overseas
This adoption fee is a contribution towards the costs of rescuing the dog including
– microchip, pet passport, vaccines, tests for South European diseases, neutering (IF OLD ENOUGH), parasite treatment and transport to the UK.
We can not home dogs from overseas to people who work full time or long hours, unless some sort of doggy day care is offered. They need someone at home a lot of the day, they are not used to being alone for long periods. A dog walker for an hour out of the day is not enough.
Leaving dogs a long time on their own means they are highly likely to develop separation anxiety which is distressing for them and everyone in their new home.
