“We’re hoping for a miracle: to find a special someone willing to take them all on!” They are looking for a home where they will find peace together.
Chico, Daisy, and Mitch were found living in a caravan with many other Chihuahuas and were promptly taken in by the RSPCA. The trio was incredibly nervous when they first arrived at the shelter, and it’s taken months to build their trust. They’ve become so much more confident and affectionate as time has gone. But the one big thing that hasn’t changed is their love for each other.
Chico, Daisy, and Mitch are best friends and can’t stand being apart from each other. They’re incredibly bonded, and now their rescuers are hoping to find them the perfect forever home together.
“When Chico, Daisy, and Mitch arrived, they were under-socialized and terrified of people,” Tiffany Saunders, the kennels supervisor at the RSPCA’s Block Fen Animal Centre, said in a press release. “It’s taken us time to bring them out of their shells, but now we’re getting to know who they are as individuals. They may be small, but they’re certainly mighty, and they each have their very own personality but have one thing in common — their love for each other! We want to keep this trio together, so we’re hoping for a miracle: to find a special someone willing to take them all on!”
Chico, Daisy, and Mitch
So far, there’s been a lot of interest in the trio. But the shelter hasn’t been able to find their perfect match just yet. Their rescuers describe them as aggressive and need a family who can handle each of their specific needs.
“Daisy is certainly the boss of the group,” Saunders said. “She is also the most cautious around strangers and will make you work for her love. She loves long walks and enjoys chasing Mitch around in the paddocks. Once she trusts you, she adores cuddles and is very affectionate. Chico is the most independent of the three; he’s happy doing his own thing and likes to mooch around and go for a good sniff. However, he loves to cuddle up to his pals at bedtime and gets quite stressed if he can’t be with them. Mitch is quite timid but is a real lap dog once he knows you. Initially, he had to be carried out on walks, but he is slowly learning that walks can be fun! He is a bit of a pig and will try to steal Daisy’s dinner, so you’ll need to keep your eyes peeled at mealtimes.”
These Chihuahuas hope to find a quiet home. They are looking for experienced dog owners who can dedicate time to getting to know each of the three. And help them adjust to their new life. They’d ideally like a home with minimal visitors and no other dogs. And space to retreat whenever they’re feeling nervous or overwhelmed. They’ve been through a lot. And now they want somewhere peaceful with people who love them, where they can all relax together and be themselves.

“It took us some time to build bonds with this little group, but now [that] we have, they’ve shown how loving they are,” Saunders said. “But we know new owners will have to work hard to gain this trust.”
It may take some time to find the right fit for these three. But their rescuers refuse to settle and are willing to wait. The perfect family to adopt all three of them is out there somewhere.
“We appreciate that taking on one dog is a big responsibility, so taking on three is a huge ask. But we don’t want to separate this trio,” Saunders said. “We hope someone out there will be the perfect match for Chico, Daisy, and Mitch.”
Don’t forget: They are looking for a home together.
