Clive is a small, 18 months old chihuahua x little boy, with a black and tan, short, soft coat.
In the home, Clive is a lovely dog who loves human attention and cuddles. He has a very cheeky character, which you can’t help to love.
Clive loves his toys to play with and would love a garden. He is housetrained and he walks well on lead. Clive is learning to tackle new situations, as previously he was not walked in public and so he used to struggle meeting new people and other dogs. Clive is fast at learning new things every day and he is coping very well and improving, but his training will need to be continued by his new owners.
He is reactive sometimes to other dogs when out walking, and his foster mum has distraction techniques that he is following as part of his new experiences. We think a home in a rural, non built up area would be best for him, offering quiet walks in the countryside. He doesn’t seem to be as excited as other dogs get when “walkies” is mentioned, so perhaps a big garden is enough for this little boy.
An older person or couple, who don’t have young children visiting would be ideal and without another dog. He is ok to be left on his own for short periods of time. Clive has not been tested with cats. He is a tiny dog with a huge heart and is looking for his forever lap and lots of cuddles

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.
