Lucy (aka Trixie)

Lucy (aka Trixie)

maltese - female

When Lucy was picked up from the pound she had a very long matted coat from long term neglect. She couldn't even see through her long thick fringe! She went straight from the animal shelter to a local groomer where she was groomed. What a difference hours made to little Lucy!

The pound estimated Lucy to be 4-6 years old but she is very playful, more like a 2-3 year old. She has a small frame, only weighs some 5kgs and has a very gentle nature.

She travels well in the car in either a crate or on the seat next to you. She is fantastic with kids, is so very people orientated and just loves to hang out at your feet. She needs to be with you all the time so you have to make room for her on the sofa and in your bedroom. She is happy to sleep on a rug beside your bed as long as she can sense you are there and that she is not on her own or being locked away from you. While on the computer she finds a spot near my feet and falls asleep.

Lucy loves her walks and is learning to walk well on the lead and as she is so people orientated she is just always happy to stay by your side. She gets on well with her foster carers dog although she is so needy for attention she tries to get all of the pats. She has not had many cuddles in her neglected life and is learning to accept these also she had no idea how to play with toys.

Lucy really craves constant companionship so she'd be best suited to a home with someone home all day or with another dog to give her the company she desperately needs.

Lucy (aka Trixie) was adopted on 21 May 2014 after 4 weeks in foster care

Tabster

Tabster

DSH - male

Tabster is a very curious and cuddly young man. He loves to wonder around the house and explore and loves nothing better than to play a game of chase with a toy.

He can be very active and likes to climb and jump and explore. He likes a good long pat and a cuddle and will look to sit on your next to you rather than be on his own. He is full of beans and will run down the hall before you know it. He play fights with the other kittens and chases them around the room (all in good fun). He's happy to climb up into your lap for affection and will also meow at you softly until he gets your attention. He starts purring almost as soon as you pick him up.

He’s a very confident kitten and has no issues walking up to my 13 year old cat and trying to play and is not afraid of our dog through the window. He gets along well with our young kids and they love to play. His favourite time of the day is falling asleep on the lounge next to or on someone.

Tabster was adopted on 19 May 2014 after 2 weeks in foster care

Fluffy

Fluffy

Maltese x FoxTerrier - male

This is Fluffy, very sweet, tiny frame, gentle little boy of 7 yrs. Fluffy was surrendered by his family to DCH on the promise that we would find him a home where he would be greatly loved and cared for.

Well behaved and takes commands reasonably well. Rides well in the car, walks beautifully, loves outdoor adventures, sleeps in or out (always sheltered), house trained and likes to be close by but is not overly needy. He has playful nature with gentle puppy bites and high 5’s. Barks when excited or doing the job of watch dog, he doesn’t mind a small cuddle from time to time either. Seems to be good with small children however I would recommend supervision at all times as Fluffy could easily be hurt by a heavy hand. Fluffy really enjoys the company of other small dogs similar in nature to his own. Ideally we would like to find Fluffy a home with a playmate for fun times and comforting security. Fluffy will need regular grooming and daily brushes, his fur matts easily, he doesn’t mind a gentle groom at all but can get very nervous when bathed. Fluffy is a small boy in a big world that sometimes makes him a little anxious, loud voices and noises like thunder and fireworks frighten him. Fluffy would also suit and active retired couple who are looking for a grand dog to care for and take on small loved up adventures.

Fluffy is cared for at Padstow.

Fluffy was adopted on 17 May 2014 after 2 months in foster care

Misty

Misty

DSH - female

Poor Misty was returned to DCH after her owner died suddenly from a stroke. She was adopted as a kitten originally and has been really missing the only home she has ever known. Misty is quite affectionate and will rub up against you for pats.

She gets along well with other cats, but would much prefer to be on her own so she gets all of your attention. Misty has actually learnt how to 'knock' on our back door when she wants to come inside and will even curl up under the blankets with you when it gets cold.

She enjoys having access to the outdoors but will quickly return when called. Misty is toilet trained and is also very good at using her scratching post.

If you think you can provide a loving home to this lovely girl please contact us!
