3/11/09 Sadly poor Scamp has been suffering from dementia recently and has had to be put to sleep. He had a wonderful loving home as you can see from his rehoming story here on the website. He will be greatly missed by his family. Sleep tight Scamp.
18/1/09 Scamp was an extremely popular boy and he went to his fabulous new home today!
Scamp is a lovely Bearded Collie cross who came into Oldies Club care due to his owner’s ill-health. He’s 15 years old and is smaller than an average Beardie.
Scamp is currently in Plymouth and he’s settled into his new foster home really well. He has a gentle nature and is a pleasant, well behaved house guest. He gets on great with cats, children and other dogs.
Scamp loves his walks and is well behaved both on and off the lead. As he’s a little hard of hearing his recall isn’t very good, but if you sign to him he’ll follow you anywhere! He loves meeting other dogs and will make friends easily. He’s a very good boy in the car too!
Scamp loves company, but he takes himself off somewhere quiet at times. He’s fine to be left alone for 4-5 hours without problems, but he likes you to say goodbye first!
Scamp is in good health and is still very active. He has recently has a dental and had 11 teeth removed, but he’s recovered well and is eating normally.
Scamp is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and has been wormed and flea-treated.
If you can offer this perfect gent a loving home, please refer to our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:
Telephone: 0844 586 8656
Scamp 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 him.
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.
