Darcy is a three-year-old Chihuahua who has been with the Arc Animal Rescue Centre for just over two months.

Crystal Scott, Arc’s manager, said: “She is very sweet and affectionate with people once you get to know her and she trusts you. She can also be very playful and loves lots of cuddles.

“She is quite a nervous dog and likes running around the garden, but she would get frightened walking on the pavement next to lots of traffic.”

Darcy, who is very small, would prefer not to live with children or dogs.

Crystal said: “She needs owners who are patient and kind and have a quite home. She likes her home comforts and sleeps on a hot water bottle. Her house training also needs reinforcing.”
