We are told that Chilli lived with her first owner for some time before she married and moved away. Unfortunately, Chilli could not go with her. Chilli was sent to live on a dairy farm and spent much of her time chained. A family friend decided to take her away and placed her online where we became aware of her. 


Chilli is a real sweet-heart, she is easy-going, friendly, affectionate and sociable. Chilli is comfortable around other dogs, big and small. She can be frightened by loud noises but is not generally timid. Chilli is house-trained and enjoys trips in the car.

Chilli can be possessive when on you lap - she prefers her own cuddle time. Aside from this she is fairly easy going and quiet.


Chilli will need to be de-sexed, micro-chipped, vaccinated prior to becoming available for adoption.

Initial check shows no patella issues present. Chilli does not currently need a dental but we would advise her owner book her in within a year to ensure her teeth remain healthy!

Chilli was flea and wormed on her arrival – 20/10/2018

*Chilli came into season after her arrival so her spay was pushed back. We will be attending to this prior to Chilli going on trial and as soon as it is safe to do so.

To be confirmed – Chilli has just come into foster care and we will update her adopter requirements once her foster carer has assessed her fully.
