Meet Mickey & Buddy. We believe these gorgeous desexed males are brothers so we are hoping not to separate them, although not heavily dependent on each other they do enjoy the others company. These two gentle souls were surrendered to rescue recently after living their whole lives outside. They are 8-9 years young.
They are in foster with other bigger dogs and cats and are great with them. They are (nearly) house trained (remember they lived their whole lives outside so may still have a small accident every now and again so need a human who will not be cranky and yell) and even though they were outside dogs for 8-9 years, they are now inside/outside dogs and they love, love, LOVE being inside with their human!! If you are inside they prefer being in side with you.
They are the perfect lap dogs as just want to sit right by you (or on you!) while you watch TV or read a book. They are happy to follow you around the garden or the house and generally be where you are.
They didn’t know what a harness or a lead was but after only a week or so have worked out how fun walks are and absolutely love their daily walks. They are even great off lead and stick close by when in familiar parks and away from traffic. They are good in the car and are just the most delightful pair of little boys.
They are quiet boys and need a quiet home so prefer no kids as although they are gentle they will startle easily with yelling and loud noises. They are looking for a nice retirement that is all about love, warmth and human company. They will be shy with their new human/s for a short while but Buddy will be quick to sit on your lap once he knows this is his home, but will be slow to be as comfortable in the park with you. Mickey will be slower for a cuddle at home until he knows you but will be more comfortable in the park once he has a routine.
They are in great health. They have just had their teeth scaled and cleaned. They also saw a local specialist who said there is no sign of arthritis in either dog with full mobility in all joints and muscles strong and healthy.
They are dogs that will need regular grooming and someone who knows the costs this may incur.
They would suit an older couple, or someone who is home more than not, that wants great company, lots of cuddles, loves taking the dogs for walks most days and wants the company of two little poppets.
