Jan at Farplace has taken in 2 older dogs. They are Tia (whippet cross female) and Scruffy (border terrier cross female) both are 10 years old and friendly.
Contact Jan if you can offer these ladies a retirement home.
Here’s what she says …
We took them in because the owner has a family member critically ill in hospital, and could not manage to care for the dogs as well as she wanted to. We do not generally take dogs in because we do not have kennels, but in this case, we felt it right to say yes to them. Most places reject dogs of this age as they are not considered as home-able as younger dogs. They are for re-homing together. They rely on each other. The are very sweet and very waggy.
They are a little confused at the moment, which is only to be expected.
