Chihuahua

Triple trouble: Trio of small but mighty Chihuahuas search for home together


A trio of ‘feisty’ Chihuahuas are looking for a special home willing to take them all together.

Six-year-old Chico, five-year-old Daisy and six-year-old Mitch were rescued by the RSPCA alongside a large number of Chihuahuas who’d been found living in a caravan.

The threesome were taken in by Block Fen Animal Centre, in Cambridgeshire, where dedicated staff have spent months building their confidence and socialising them with other dogs and people.
