Harley



Harley (Harlequin! - his coloring) is a very young little boy of about 2 kg. We estimate his age at 1 year - could be 10 months to 12 months, extremely friendly and playful. He may be a pure Chihuahua but he may also have some mini Foxy in him - very Chihuahua like though - just look at those eyes! He wants to be close to you all the time - very gentle loving little guy.
Harley has been desexed, immunized, heart worm tested, and microchipped, wormed, and given flea treatment. His price is $300 to cover vet fees.

Alice

To read Alice's full story go to SUCCESS STORIES"..

Alice has new parents and here is the wonderful update on our darling little girl!
Quote :-
I hardly know where to start! We are just so enamoured with this gorgeous little soul. We have taken to calling her Gypsy (I hope that's ok!) - and she has fit right in to our family immediately.
She is starting to feel a bit more secure, and even sleeps in bed with us now (she used to sleep by herself on the couch the first few nights) so I think thats a good sign that she might be starting to realise this is really "home" now! the first few nights i had left my bathrobe on the couch too, which i think she must have thought was the best bed in the house - so now that's where it stays every morning after i leave for work! She gets SO excited at dinner time and t
ears down the hallway at lightning speed, but she picks up her little leg and carries it behind her
so she is kind of hopping down the hallway - its just adorable.
Other than when she runs, she doesn't seem bothered by her leg at all, and of course she's decided she
likes the taller couch rather than the one closer to the ground and I always fret when she jumps up off it! We've made her a little set of steps so she can get up easier but half the time she doesn't even use them.
.

"What do you mean? This is your housecoat?"




Time for bed already? No I am not tired! says she with a yawn!!










Less than five minutes later!







The story of Alice : before adoption :-
Our darling Alice has gone to a new home and will be "trying out" for a fortnight!! THANK YOU to every wonderful person who has donated for Alice's leg operation. Such a wonderful response and generosity from everyone. We should have more than enough for Alice now, t
hank you. With your permission, if any is left over, it will go towards the operation that another little girl, Tangaranga (Julia! - very red hair!) who has some massive growths on her underb
elly and is yet to see the vet. THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH!!








This was the request we made for Alice - and the wonderful response we got for her.

Chester

Both Chester and Ralph have found a new home together!

Chester is a Chihuahua cross Pomeranian, aged six years, and toilet trained. He is a litter brother to Ralph and they have been together all their lives, but we feel sure they will be OK apart.
He loves a tummy tickle and is very playful.

Mikki


Mikki is a Chihuahua crossed with Jack Russell. He is a very small, well behaved dog. He appears to be afraid of all other dogs and children. He is a little timid until he gets to know you. He loves to sit on your lap and watch TV with you so would make a good companion for a quiet household. He has an endearing habit of resting his head on your chest - like a cuddle!
Mikki is five years old, and is toilet trained, comes when called albeit a bit tentatively in the beginning. He loves his daily walks (not too far though!) but MUST be walked on harness.
