For adoption a 6 year old Chihuahua x Jack Rusell called Lexi.

We think that Lexi would benefit from living in a quiet home who are looking for a loving little companion.

She will take time to adjust to her new owners, she likes to take her time to get to know you before become friends, this may take a few days.

Lexi loves her food and playing, the more toys the better! Lexi’s preference is small cat toys, she just loves to have fun. Loving her food means she is very trainable aswell, she has good obedience and knows a list of commands.

Lexi gets very anxious when you bring people into the home, she has a visitors programme in place to helps her learn that they aren’t scary, after meeting people a few times she settles. Support will be given with this training.

Lexi is a massive space invader and loves getting herself nestled underneath the duvet next to you.

She is also crate trained and is just as happy spending the night on a mound of blankets with a cuddly toy to keep her company.

Lexi loves being brushed and having a short pamper session.

Lexi is cat friendly. But sadly hasn’t been tested with children so older teens plus please.

She needs to the only dog in the home.

Once you form a bond with Lexi, it is a true friendship for life, all she needs is someone to give her the time to get to know her.

Helping Dogs and Cats UK Rescue

Helping Dogs & Cats is a non-profit animal rescue (CIC number1420295) based in Basingstoke and operates in Hampshire, Berkshire, Kent, and Surrey. We rescue dogs, cats and other small animals in need of help.

Our journey began in 2018 when our Founder Kirsty Wrightson established the rescue after losing her beloved dog, Millie. Our work includes rehoming and rehabilitation, veterinary care, microchipping, spaying and neutering. All of the animals that come into our care first go into foster homes for assessment.

Adopting a dog or cat or other animal is a big decision and in most instances, a long-term commitment. To help you answer any questions you may have we have created an FAQ guide.

Our small team is staffed by volunteers, who are true animal lovers and passionate about animal welfare. We receive no government funding and depend entirely on the generosity of our supporters. Every penny we receive goes directly to helping dogs and cats.

We offer full rescue backup for the life of your adopted animal.
