12/3/09 Trixie has found her new home!
Trixie is the cutest, small 12 year old Collie X Jack Russell. She is in an Oldies Club foster home in Watford, Hertfordshire, waiting patiently for the offer of a permanent home.
Trixie is a very lively girl – her foster carer tells us that it’s hard to believe she’s 12 years old. Here’s more of what her foster carer has told us:
Trixie’s smart with a good temperament, loving, quick to learn and quite a character. She’s well-trained, clean and quiet in the house and doesn’t mind being left alone for 4/5 hours. She loves her walks – dancing on her hind legs with excitement at the prospect – and walks well on the lead after the initial excitement. She’s good off the lead and comes when called.
Trixie is not obsessed with food and takes any treats very gently. She does love lots of fuss, playing with her squeaky toys and cuddling up on the sofa – she would also love to share the bed (which she did in her previous home), but accepts not being allowed to and sleeps quietly in her basket all night long.
She is not too keen on being groomed, but is beginning to enjoy a daily brushing to keep her thick, wiry coat clean and in good condition … she nibbles at the brush when she’s had enough! She’s altogether in good shape with excellent eyesight, hearing and teeth.
She doesn’t like cats – and barks at postmen – but is fine with other dogs so long as they don’t get too pushy with her. At the moment, she is not a good traveller in the car – she whines and is better kept restrained as she sometimes tries to jump over the seats. Possibly more trips in the car to the park and not just to the vets or the beauty parlour would help.
Trixie has been spayed, vaccinated and microchipped. She has also passed her health check with flying colours at the vets and been flea and worm treated.
Her foster carer summarises:
She’s quite a perfect little girl and will make a super addition to any cat-free household. She’s got a lot of love and affection to give and deserves a good home for the rest of her life. I really cannot recommend her enough. She’s a real charmer and I’m falling for her already!
Wow! Who could resist adorable little Trixie?
If you are interested in Trixie, please refer to our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:

Trixie can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, subject to a satisfactory home visit, but note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet her.
If you would love to offer a home to an oldie but your circumstances aren’t suitable, perhaps you would be kind enough to sponsor one of the special oldies we are caring for that, due to health problems, are unlikely to be offered a permanent home.
