Japanese Spitz Rescue

Japanese Spitz Rescue

Stephanie Bliss has been involved with the Japanese Spitz breed for many years and supports both the Japanese Spitz Club UK and the Northern Japanese Spitz Club with the rescue and re homing of Japanese Spitz.

Charney is part of the Kennel Club Assured Breeders scheme and both Stephanie and Carly are committed to the long term welfare of the Japanese Spitz they have bred and any other Japanese Spitz in the unfortunate position of needing a new home.

Japanese Spitz Rescue & Welfare


The following procedures are followed (according to guidelines set by the Association of British Dogs & Cat homes).


We assess the characteristics of the dog in order to match it with the most suitable type of home.

We obtain information and references from prospective adopters to ensure their circumstances and facilities fit the requirements of the dog.

All rescue Japanese Spitz are fully vaccinated, wormed and micro chipped before adoption. They are also taken for a veterinary health check when they arrive at Charney 



When-ever possible the rescue dog will be neutered, however this is only possible if funds allow. Advice on the benefits and reasons for neutering will be explained. Any Japanese Spitz that is re homed through Charney Rescue is not permitted to be bred from, the intention is to find the dog a pet home only. Kennel Club registration documents will be marked as ‘not for the purposes of breeding’. Charney Rescue may decide to retain KC documents for dogs re homed.¬†


We provide on-going advice to the new owner on any relevant details about the new pet and it’s future care.

We will accept the dog back into care if the re-homing is unsuccessful. We aspire to a non-destruct policy of healthy animals.

Euthanasia is only recommended if extreme physical or behavioural conditions exists which make re-homing impossible.
