Draco is a 6yr old chihuahua.

He has come from Spain and we don’t think he has had a very good life before he came to us.

He has scars on his head and we think he could have been hit and may have some brain damage.

He is a scared boy who feels he needs to scare people away and he doesn’t trust straight away.

Gaining his trust can take a little time.

He is now starting to trust the people in his home because they have taken things slowly and calmly.

Once he does trust you a bit he will come and sit on you, but he does not like being picked up.

He does get on well with other dogs and cats.

Because he can get scared enough to bite (Not broken the skin) we will not rehome with children or older people.

He needs someone with time and patience to work with him to make him a happy secure boy.

Adoption fees & homecheck information

Re-homing is subject to a successful home check and adoption fee.

When completing your adoption application, you are required to pay a non-refundable admin fee of £11.

After receiving your application, we will contact you to arrange your homecheck.

If you have already been homechecked within the last 12 months, you do not need to fill out a new application – just email SNDrescue@gmail.com and let us know. Homes already checked will get priority.

If your homecheck was over 12 months ago then you will need to apply for a new one by completing the adoption form and paying the £11 admin fee for processing your updated homecheck.

When taking a dog on trial, adopters must pay the adoption fee. This is £300 for adult dogs and £400 for puppies. There are times when the fee will be altered.

If a dog goes on trial and is returned, the people returning the dog need to email SNDogs with bank info to claim back the adoption fee.

This will be refunded (minus a non-refundable £50 which you will have been informed of and agreed to before taking the dog on trial) as long as the dog is returned in the same condition as you received them, with no injuries, signs of neglect or abuse.

Please ensure that the full donation amount is available prior to having your home check, as this avoids disappointment all round.
