Con and Pepper with Marilyn

Con and Pepper
We are Purebred

CON and PEPPER are two adorable young Chihuahuas .. Con is a one year old tan male and Pepper is a two year old black female .. both weigh approximately 3 kilograms.

They bond quickly with people after a little hesitancy to begin with and both love children .. as Con and Pepper are very tiny .. if children are involved they would be best suited to a home with children of at least school age.

Fully secure fencing with no gaps is a must .. they are not diggers and are very good watch dogs .. they were surrendered together and absolutely love each other so we are looking for a home where they can be together.

Con and Pepper are not at all aggressive but are very nervous around other dogs especially big dogs .. as they love human company .. they need someone who is home for at least part of the day.

But they can be easily left alone for a few hours as they keep each other company .. Con and Pepper do get up to mischief .. so I keep them in a contained area or a pen when I am not at home.

Pepper and Con

They are inside/outside dogs and are quite happy to sleep in their pen or a small room at night .. Con and Pepper have completed their toilet training and will now sit on command and come when called.

They will need continued obedience training but learn very quickly as they respond well to rewards .. they are not fussy eaters .. I feed them mainly dry food with a bit of chicken or high quality wet food.

Con is the more highly strung .. he is very active and just loves his toys and the game of fetch .. they both walk well on leads and look forward to daily walks.

They travel happily in a car in a cat cage .. if these two little cuties have caught your eye .. please apply online to 4 Paws.

Adoption Fee for the Pair:   $600.00


Teeny Rikki
I am a Purebred

RIKKI is an adorable 3 1/2 year old Chihuahua Male weighing 2 kilograms.

Family circumstance forced his surrender .. thankfully he was entrusted to 4 Paws to find the right home for him.

Rikki is an extremely friendly little fellow who loves everyone including older GENTLE children .. he is best suited to an ONLY dog family.

Rikki is very tiny and requires the best dog proof fencing .. due to his size NO gaps allowed that he could fit through.

He walks well on a lead and enjoys a play in the yard .. he is toilet trained and loves indoors and must be allowed inside with you when he wants .. Rikki has a great appetite and eats wet and dry food.

Rikki displays basic training skills and will come when called .. he is not a barker but will give a growl if unknown strangers are around your property.

He is highly affectionate and loves being kissed and cuddled .. his tail wags constantly as he is a happy dog.

Rikki loves going to bed at night .. he sleeps all night and loves sleeping in .. he would love to sleep on the bed with you .. Rikki does not take up much room .. though if he has a warm bed beside yours he is happy with that also.

4 Paws is looking for a special home for Rikki .. we would prefer someone with vet references of previous ownership of a small dog similar to him .. as Rikki has never been left for long periods of time during the day someone home a lot would be perfect.

I need a Foster Carer


TIGGER is a 11 year old male Miniature Fox Terrier Cross .. weighing approximately 7 kilograms.

He has found himself homeless and 4 Paws has taken him in to be re-homed .. Tigger has lived his whole life with a male gentleman until he passed away unexpectedly.

Tigger is a handsome friendly little dog who loves human company with a nature that will be loyal to his new owner.

As you can see from his photo he is a lively happy playful dog who is intelligent and eager to please.

Tigger enjoys walks and playing with a ball .. he rarely barks and enjoys the company of other dogs his size or smaller.

He is easy to feed .. he eats anything that is put in front of him .. as Tigger is a short haired breed he has an easy care coat.

Tigger is good with older children but has never been tried with younger children .. until he came to 4 Paws he was an outside dog.

Tigger NOW enjoys an inside outside lifestyle where he can be included in family life .. he is also content to be an ONLY DOG member of the family due to past history of living in an only dog home.

JASPER is a tiny 5 years old male Pomeranian weighting approx: 2.6 kilograms.

He is a teeny little Prince .. but do not be fooled by his stature.

Jasper has a huge personality with many little quirks that make him very special.

He loves cuddles but he also likes quiet time.

Jasper will often take himself into a quiet corner and watch the household activities from afar.

He is not shy .. Jasper just has an independent spirit although saying this he would be best suited to a home where he is not left alone for long periods of time.

Jasper can be a little unsure of strangers and will bark at people that he does not know but soon warms to them after a pat.
Jasper is so tiny .. a home without small children who would be tempted to pick him up would be preferred.

He is a very good boy .. he comes when called and knows to sit before he gets his dinner .. he is house trained too.

Jasper eats his dinner of biscuits with very good manners and he also enjoys vegetables as a treat .. he likes to spend time in the garden sniffing and pottering around.

Jasper does not really like to walk on lead though so playtime in the garden or in an off leash dog park is needed rather than a long walk.

He does like to play with a squeaky ball .. Jasper is an indoor dog and he likes the company of other dogs.

Jasper has a beautiful double coat .. like all Pomeranians he requires regular combing to ensure that his fur does not become matted .. he enjoys being groomed so this should be part of his routine.

Cheeky Carmello

Hi this is CARMELLO .. he is a SERIOUSLY CUTE 12 month old male Chihuahua Mix .. he was rescued from death row at the pound.

Carmello required surgery for a luxating patella (floating kneecap) on his right hind led .. the surgery is complete and Carmello has made a fantastic recovery.

He is still very much a puppy and wants to play all day long .. except for when he is eating .. sleeping and smooching.

Carmello loves other dogs .. particularly if they want to play .. he is a mostly an indoors dog though Carmello walks well on a lead and enjoys play in the yard.

He is small and only weighs approx: 3 kilograms .. so Carmello would definitely only be suited to a family with older children .. Carmello has the most amazing amount of love to give and his puppy antics are hilarious.
