Twix - Adopted


We all like a bit of chocolate at Christmas, but Twix just wants to snuggle up in her furever home!

Twix was dumped near Lagao and taken to a private shelter along with her sister Twizzle, who has already been reserved.

They are both inquisitive little girls who like to put their noses into everything they can find.

Twix is very playful with all other dogs and is very friendly with everybody she sees and is very affectionate.

We estimate will be 12/15 kgs when fully grown.

As you can see from the video below, she has passed her cat test!

She will be fully vaccinated and treated for fleas, ticks and worms and come with her own passport.

Twix is in foster in Fleet, Hampshire - ALL ADOPTERS TO LIVE WITHIN 30MINS OF GU52

Size: Small/Medium in size probably around 12/15 kgs when fully grown.

Date of Birth: 19/08/2020

Adopters should live within 30mins drive of Fleet as we like all our adoptions to be local.



COVID- 19 - Until further notice adopters need to live within 30mins of GU52.

FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN UNDER 10  - The shelters in Portugal are also in lockdown and this prevents people visiting the shelter. Until children are able to meet the puppies and our fosterers assess their reactions, we will not be adopting to families with children under the age of 10 until things return to normal.

How we import the dogs

As a registered Charity all our dogs are imported legally under the Balai Directive, which require the dogs to be fully vaccinated and have a microchip, rabies vaccine, veterinary health check 48hours before dispatch and an Intra-Trade Animal Health Certificate (ITAHC) completed by an Official Veterinarian. The dogs also come from registered or approved premises.

We also go above the statutory minimum and carry out a blood analysis to screen for Ehrlichia, Anaplasma, Lyme disease & Heartworm. We also test for Leishmania.

Finally, the ‘Happy Buses’ we use, are fully approved commercial operators traveling either under a DEFRA Type 2 Licence for transporting live animals for journey times in excess of 8 hours or the equivalent type licence issued by the Portuguese DGAV.
