Dogs for adoption in Sussex: Can you give this adorable Chihuahua a loving home?

Meet Frankie – a ‘teeny chap with tonnes of character’ who is looking for a loving home.

Cheeky and loving, yet sensitive at times, the sweet Chihuahua likes a gentle approach when it comes to making friends.

Although earning his trust may take some time, Dogs Trust Shoreham said building a bond with him will be worth the wait.

Patient adopters will be rewarded with his true, affectionate, and spirited nature.

Four-year-old Frankie is seeking a supportive family who can gradually build up his confidence, while providing him with a quieter home environment.

Equally, Frankie appreciates being taken on peaceful walks, in less-frequented areas as, once he’s feeling relaxed, the pup loves to explore.

The youngest members of his family must be in their older teens, and he will need to be the only pet in his new home.

A garden of his own is essential so that he can regularly enjoy some outdoor relaxation time.

If you think you could offer a sensitive chap a second chance at happiness, then Frankie would love to hear from you.
