April 2013 Alice has sadly passed away. Her owners sent this tribute:
ADORABLE ALICE “Miss February 2010”
Alice was a very special little dog – full of character and fun. She was already fairly elderly when we adopted her in March 2008, but she could have been a puppy – energetic, playful and a perfect fit for our family. She was a very happy little dog, full of mischief who loved sunshine and was sunshine.
She had a very happy last few years of her life with her second family. She was much loved and we have so many memories of the antics she would get up to. On many a walk she would make her ‘bid for freedom’ with my son in hot pursuit, but she always came back to us, extremely pleased with herself! She was always striving to be top dog, even though she was tiny next to our very long suffering Lurcher, but they were great companions. She even came to terms with living with four cats! She had her spot in the limelight when she became Miss February in the Oldies Club calendar. She was never one to pose prettily for the camera, but her cheekiness always shone through. Independent to the last and in complete control of every member of the family, human and otherwise! She is very sadly missed.
30/3/08 – Adorable Alice has gone to a wonderful new home! Good luck Alice!
Alice is an adorable 11-year-old Terrier Cross girl who enjoys life and has the typical terrier cheekiness. Alice loves to play ball but she also enjoys snuggling up to you and snoozing.
Alice is currently living with a Labrador in her foster home in Gillingham, Kent. She is fine with him, and even with the chickens that are kept in a separate enclosure in the garden! Her previous owners have told us that she is good with cats. However, as the foster home has no cats we canâ€™t be 100% sure.
As you can see, Alice loves to snuggle up to her canine host!
Alice is good with dogs but is possessive over toys and food. We would expect her new owner to continue the training her foster carer has started. Due to her possessiveness, any children in Alice’s new home need to be older so that they understand her temperament.
Alice’s recall is near enough non-existent and she will only come back when she is ready. Her foster carer always keeps her on an extending lead. It seems as though she is used to being walked on an extender because she avoids trees so that she doesn’t get tangled. She’s a wise old girl!
Alice is a lovely little dog whose perfect home would be with retired owners who want a quiet companion snuggling up to them whilst they relax and who would be happy to take her for a couple of walks a day on her extending lead.
Alice is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, worm and flea treated and had a dental with some teeth extractions whilst in our care. She has had a clean bill of health and is eagerly awaiting a new family to call her own!
