Nacho is a tri-coloured long haired Chihuahua, she might be small but she has a big personality.

This little Chihuahua loves visiting the nursing homes and will happily sit on all the residents laps and have lots of fuss and cuddles (and the occasional biscuit crumb or two!) The homes all ask after her so we wouldn't like to visit without her, there would be some very sad people - staff as well as residents.


Lucy is a  tri coloured, Cavalier King Charles. She is a very happy, loving and loyal companion who has been a great support to her owner and family over the years.

She enjoys nothing more than being with you wherever you go even to the bathroom.  Lucy has been going to training classes since she was a puppy and very much enjoys learning.

Her favourite place to be is curled up on a lap asleep. She is currently training to be a visiting dog and loves getting attention and fuss almost as much as she loves treats (Almost!).
