Barney and Charlie have a meet and greet this week with a prospective adopter. Dogs love company and close companionship, so what could be better than adopting a bonded pair? This lovely duo of dogs are just delightful. They are affectionate, friendly and eager to please. They love everyone they meet and being a joy to all.
Charlie is a girl - a fluffy Jack Russel x sweetheart. Barney is a gorgeous Shih Tzu x boy. They both have lovely soft coats and will be the perfect couch-buddies as the weather cools down!
Unfortunately Charlie and Barney's owners had to rehome them due to an interstate move. It was certainly no fault of the dogs. They were very loved by their previous family and we know they'll be just as loved by the family who adopt them. Who wouldn't love these two?
Charlie and Barney love the beach. They have a ball getting sandy and salty and aren't afraid of the surf at all. If you don't live near the beach, thats okay too as the local park is just as fun. As long as they're together, there's sure to be good times.
Please consider offering a home to this lovely pair, you won't regret it.
All Chihuahua Rescue Queensland dogs have been fully health checked by our vets. We offer a free post-adoption health check with Greencross Vets at Chermside, Jindalee, Browns Plains or Indooroopilly hospitals. This gives you the opportunity to talk directly to the vet about any questions you may have. We provide all veterinary records for each dog, including copies of blood tests, any relevant xrays and medical notes.
All Chihuahua Rescue Queensland dogs are desexed, vaccinated and microchipped. We test all our dogs for heartworm and treat them with regular parasite prevention.
Charlie and Barney both have severely rotten teeth when they came into care and required major dental surgeries. They have recovered well.
Charlie is 11 years old and she has a heart murmur. We have had her assessed by our vets very thoroughly and she does not require heart medication at this stage.
Barney is 12 years old and he has collapsing trachea. This means he does cough a bit. We have done incredibly thorough diagnostic investigation including a scope and testing fluid samples from his lungs. Our vets have advised that the best management of this condition is for him to lose weight, eat slowing and take a rest when he does have a coughing incident. He takes some antacid with his food which helps with regurgitation and eats from a slow feed bowl.
Despite both Barney and Charlie being older dogs with medical conditions, they are happy and active. We believe they deserve not to be overlooked for their age.
Chihuahua Rescue QLD Inc. is not a first to apply rescue group.We re-home our dogs based on the best possible family we can find them.
The first step to adopting a dog from us is to fill out an expression of interest form.
We encourage you to provide as much detail as possible about your family and your home as this helps us make sure we match you with the most suitable dog.
This form can be found at the following address: http://www.emailmeform.com/builder/form/Kczrs885x4lq3N9u4mQhca
Due to the large volume of inquiries we are unable to respond to all applications. If you are considered suitable for the dog you have applied for you will be contacted witihin one week of applying.
Please note: we do not organise any meet and greet without a completed expression of interest form.
Our adoption process involves:
1) Completing online application form - only shortlisted applicants will be contacted.
2) Arranging a meet and greet with the dogs foster carer, after which we ask you to take 24 hours to make a decision about whether you want to adopt this dog
3) A brief home visit and yard check from one of our volunteers
4) Adoption trial spanning four weeks.
We ask that you pay the dogs adoption fee at the beginning of the adoption trial, however this will be refunded if for any reason the dog is not working out in your home within the four week period. We offer a four week adoption trial to make sure that you have plenty of time for your new dog to settle into your home and so we can offer you full support during this period and beyond.
We offer a free health check with our vets at Indooroopilly, Browns Plains, Jindalee or Kedron vet clinic after you’ve adopted your dog and every dog in our care is up to date with all vet work.
