Carlos is a 11 month old male Miniature Pinscher cross Chihuahua. Carlos is a rescue from Cyprus who is currently living near Atherstone. He has flown to the UK hoping to find a loving, forever home. Carlos is a tiny, boy of around 5 to 6 kg. He is very timid and easily scared, which has not been helped by all the moving around he has had since arriving in the UK. Carlos needs to be settled in his own home where he can relax and feel safe. He adored the children in his previous home. But due to his nervous nature we would only want to rehome him with mature children of at least 10 years of age who are very dog savvy and will have full respect for his nervous nature.
Carlos loves to play with other dogs so we can arrange for a meeting. He would be happy with another dog he can play with and who can show him the ropes or on his own providing his new family can spend lots of time with him. He sleeps well through the night and is much happier in your bedroom in his own bed, otherwise he will cry. He has some separation anxiety but this is understandable due to him moving around so he needs his human around quite a lot.
Carlos is not so good with cats. He walks well on the lead and greets most dogs well, but he can sometimes be reactive. He will need a lot of training for him to learn that he is safe and doesn’t need to react from fear and we expect that this will take time and patience over many months to help him. He must have a calm home for example, he has a fear of arms waving and will react!! He was probably hit at one point in his early months.
Carlos is so happy to run and play in the garden and then to fall asleep on your lap, basically he needs a home where he feels safe, secured, loved and you have time to work with him. We will offer support through our charity.
