Hola a todos/Hi everyone! My name is Chico and I am a 10 month old male Terrier Cross! As you can see, I am a very handsome boy and I am looking for a Terrier-experienced home where I can be properly socialised and guided into adulthood.
I previously lived with two boisterous children under 3 and whilst I never hurt them intentionally, I scratched them in excited play; we were all excitable babies together!!
However, my former owner decided it was best for me not to live with them anymore so my friend at SEDR are looking for a furever home for me. I am neutered, microchipped and up to date with my vaccinations. I was an only dog in my previous home but used to play happily with other dogs. I have been dog-tested at SEDR HQ and proved to be playful and silly when meeting other dogs (and non-reactive when told to show some manners!!).
Therefore, I could live with another confident dog who could keep up with my youngster’s energy! I walk nicely on a lead but as there has never been work on my recall, this would be worth practicing in a secure space (especially as I am excitable and prone to ‘cocking a deaf ear’ in true Terrier fashion!!).
I absolutely ADORE people and cannot wait for everyone to say “Hello/Hola” to me!! I can get a little bit excitable but with a bit of training, I can learn to greet a little less enthusiastically!
In my previous home, I was allowed to escape from my home on multiple occasions and was often found saying “Hi” to local residents in the neighbourhood. However, this must not be allowed to happen in my new home as it places me at great risk. Therefore, my new home will not only need a secure garden but will my new family will also need an exit strategy in place to ensure I cannot take myself “walkies”.
I am fully-house trained but as a youngster who has gone through a lot of upheaval (and is developing into a teenager), you must be prepared for the possibility that I could decide to have a cheeky pee on the rug whilst I’m finding my feet!!
My former owners say that I do not have any signs of seperation anxiety but I did chew on a piece of furniture when left on my own. However, if I am not left for long periods (and with proper exercise routine and enrichment), I promise that chewing on the armchair will lose its interest to me!!
I have not lived with cats and small furries previously but due to my Terrier heritage and giddy nature, it would be safer for me to have a home without kitties or other furry ‘friends’!
I do not have any resource guarding issues. If I have a toy and you try to get it though, it’s ‘game on’: I will run and play bow, encouraging you to chase me!! However, if you try to take something away that is near me, I will not try to grab it.
I know that my distinguished good looks are going to turn a lot of heads. However, you must remember that I am a youngster who needs to ‘catch up’ with socialisation and training. As a Terrier-savvy home, you must be committed to doing this!
If you think that you meet my rehoming criteria above and would like to adopt me, please let my friends at SEDR know by filling out the form below.
Muchos besos/Lots of kisses,
