He is small but mighty, our first ever ‘Chorkie’ here at Terrier SOS, a yorkshire terrier chihuahua mix, probably bought as a puppy as an expensive present in a Spanish pet shop. As pet shop don’t operate a return policy, he was abandoned over a year later, found straying and never claimed.
Now about 2 years old, Prince George is in London foster, and is as adorable as he looks. He adjusted very quickly to his foster family, gets on with the resident dog and with everyone he meets, dogs and humans.
George is very affectionate, quite needy, he needs to be by your side. He loves playing zoomies with other dogs in the park and has great recall. In his foster garden, he enjoys digging and hiding his bones in funny places.
He loves cuddles, in fact he lives for cuddles. He is also a bit of a kangsroo, and can jump up and down very high for treats or when he sees the lead.
Chouquette was used for hunting and left abandoned. She came to the UK and was so very frightened of people and sounds and pretty much anything. We needed her to go somewhere safe until we could arrange a foster for her that could help her adjust to modern life. We work with Fox Terrier Rescue in the UK, and they kindly said they would help us and took Chouquette into their kennels, and something very amazing happened.
Chouquette became a companion and a Big Sister to a very frightened boy in rescue: Donnie. before Chouquette , Donnie wouldn’t interact or play with anyone and was so afraid of people. Both dogs had such a difficult start to life – we feel they bonded and are each others strength.
So the two must be adopted together. Chouquette is about 12 and Donnie is 9. They will both need a home that will be a quiet retirement home. They would do well in a semi rural or rural home that has a nice large secure garden. They can spend their days playing in the garden, and cuddling with their family at night. Chouquette is the braver of the two and we know that Donnie will follow her lead. Chouquette is a Fox terrier Cross and Donnie is a Wire Fox Terrier
They can’t live with young children or small furries. They are currently in Norfolk, and the prospective family would be expected to be able to visit a few times before adoption – this will allow the dogs to get use to you and make their transition far less stressful for them.
They are dog friendly, and of course people friendly – but they need time and patience – they are the sweetest pair and just deserve to be living in a forever home.
Both are vaccinated, neutered and ready for their home. Chouquette has a passport, Donnie does not. Download & complete the TerrierSOSQuestionnaire2017 to give Chouquette and Donnie a loving retirement.
Henry is a wonderful fox terrier – he is about 5 years old – he came into rescue after the Puppy Mill he was born into – was closed. Henry had only known life in this Mill before he came to us. He came with two kennel mates – both have been rehomed and have settled to life as a pet. Henry was rehomed but sadly it did not work out.
He is a wonderful dog and flourished in foster care. His foster carer said:
‘He is the most adorable puppy in a 4 year olds body I know! Since becoming part of the family he has experienced grass between his paws, strokes from friendly hands, cuddles (he loves those), the beach, car journeys (not so keen on those) and a whole host of other things. He is so willing to learn and please and nothing is better than seeing the wag of his tail.’
Henry went to his new home – where unfortunately things moved too fast for him. He found the adjustment difficult and became stressed. So it was felt it is better we find a home that can take things slower for him.
Henry will need a home that is based in the South East. We have a Behaviourist working with Henry and we would expect any new family to continue to work with the Behaviourist so that Henry gets the support he needs. We have a plan in place for him, and will discuss further with interested applicants.
The new family will need to have the time and patience for Henry and let him settle at his pace. Also as Henry does not enjoy extended car journeys – you would be a family that does not travel often.
Henry has benefited from being with larger dogs, he can be a bit overboard with smaller dogs. So he could live with a larger , calm dog. No young children and no small furries
Henry needs a terrier-experienced home that is calm with good routines. Could you offer Henry the fab home he deserves? Please read with all important FAQ Page & download the TerrierSOSQuestionnaire2017
He is neutered and vaccinated. No cats or small furries, no children under 10 in the household.
We were asked to help an ‘Airedale’ in France – he had been found wandering – they had contacted the owner on the microchip and he said he had given the dog to someone else – and did not want him back – the new owner didn’t want him – so he was in the pound.
Yoko is an older male (about 9). We were asked as his last chance, and we said yes. We were told he was an Airedale but when the Transport Van arrived and out popped this little dog, we knew he was more Welsh Terrier than Airedale due to his size! Welsh Terriers are often mistaken for miniature Airedales (as their owners will agree!) but they’re a very different terrier indeed! We believe Yoko is an Airedale / Welsh mix.
Yoko is a loving and fun boy, but he doesn’t like other dogs – and being in kennels is not ideal for him – he has been moved to a quieter environment in Norfolk and is working with a trainer to deal with his dog-dog frustrations. He deserves a foster / adoptive home. He is a bright, loving dog, he likes people and really would need some time on his own. He is 9 and is looking for a retirement home. As he is medium sized, he is more manageable with his dog-dog issues and we would work with any prospective family to ensure a plan was in place. He walks well on a lead, travels well in a car and loves people!
