Chihuahua | 12 years old



Jiggly is approximately 6 months old but has already been through a lot in her little life. She is extremely worried by the world and it has taken lots of time and patience from staff here at the centre to get enough trust from her to attach a lead. After hours of work, she has recently allowed her Canine Carer to stroke and give her minimal fuss. She still wont take treats from a hand, but she is making good progress with taking treats from around the handler. Jiggly gains lots of confidence from other dogs, so she was paired with Coco, where their friendship flourished. She follows him around, follows his lead and sticks close to him.

Type of home needed

Jiggly must be rehomed with Coco. Jiggly needs someone who is willing to spend time building up her confidence in a quiet way with minimal hands on interaction. She needs a family who will be willing to ask people to move away and give her space when necessary. She will need a safe space to go to if she feels overwhelmed. It is essential that she has a secure, private garden. She can live with children 16 and above.


In these unprecedented circumstances, we're doing everything we can to continueour vital work caring for thousands of stray and abandoned dogs. If you'd liketo help, please make a donation. Your support means so much, now more than ever.
