Lizzy is a 2-year-old female Chihuahua Cross. She was very sadly surrendered to the shelter when her family didn’t want her anymore.
The other dog that she was living with was adopted into another home shortly thereafter, but Lizzy hasn’t been so lucky yet. She’s now waiting alone in the shelter.
She’s gutted to be here after experiencing a proper home for the majority of her life, so we would love to see her fly to her new family on our December flight.
Lizzy is a small-sized Terrier mix and we think it’s very likely she could be part of a Chihuahua. She is an extremely affectionate little dog who bonds with new people very fast and can therefore be quite needy at times.
She thrives in human company and doesn’t like to be left alone for long periods of time, so would prefer a home with someone who is home frequently, or perhaps a home with another dog.
As she’s used to living alongside a canine companion this would be a familiar setup for her.
Lizzy is around two years old and she would be ideal for someone looking for a dog of a very manageable size. Despite her pocket size, Lizzy is on the go often and likes to stay busy.
She would very much appreciate a home with a garden of her own to potter about in and would like a family who can take her on long walks in leafy areas. She would be overwhelmed in a very urban environment and would be happier in a home outside of the city.
Lizzy hasn’t been tested with cats to our knowledge, but terriers can often be a little on the feisty side and often enjoy a chase. Just because she’s a smaller dog it doesn’t necessarily increase her compatibility with cats.
However, she is friendly with children and as long as she’s not manhandled she would be comfortable in a home with kids aged 7+. She would love the attention, but she does need her own space too so she doesn’t feel suffocated.
Lizzy needs some continued training when it comes to lead walking as we have noticed she’s a bit unsure of the lead and the sensation of something around her neck.
She doesn’t act adversely but scratches it sometimes and seems a bit confused. We think she’s therefore not been taken for regular walks despite having a home before now.
Lizzy is currently based in Cyprus and has a clean bill of health. She is ready to travel to a forever home in December.
