Looking for a Loving Home for Theo!

Meet Theo, a 10-month-old long-coated Chihuahua who is currently residing at The Barn Animal Rescue Centre. Theo is fully vaccinated, neutered, and microchipped, and he even comes with 5 weeks of free insurance.

Theo is a charming little dog with a lot of personality. As a long-haired Chihuahua, he has a beautiful coat that will require regular grooming to keep him looking his best. But it’s not just his looks that make Theo special. This breed has a tendency to bond closely with one or two people, and with them, he will be curious, lively, intelligent, and deeply affectionate.

However, it’s important to note that without adequate early socialisation, Chihuahuas can be wary of strangers and may appear nervous. This means that Theo will thrive in a home where he can feel safe and secure, with patient and understanding owners who can help him build confidence and trust.

If you’re interested in adopting Theo, here are a few things to consider:

  1. Commitment: Chihuahuas can live up to 15 years or more, so be prepared for a long-term commitment. Ensure that you have the time, resources, and willingness to provide Theo with a loving and stable home for the rest of his life.
  2. Exercise and Mental Stimulation: Despite their small size, Chihuahuas still require regular exercise and mental stimulation. Daily walks, playtime, and interactive toys will help keep Theo happy and healthy.
  3. Socialisation: To help Theo overcome his shyness around strangers, it’s crucial to continue his socialisation training. Positive reinforcement and exposure to new people, places, and experiences will gradually help him become more confident and comfortable.
  4. Safety: Chihuahuas are delicate dogs, so it’s important to create a safe environment for Theo. Secure fencing, supervision around larger animals, and keeping him away from potentially dangerous situations will help prevent accidents.

If you believe you can provide Theo with the love, care, and patience he deserves, please complete the application below. Let’s find this adorable little chi his forever home!
