Trixie has sadly passed away.
30/6/11 Trixie has gone off to her new home where she will be loved and adored. We are so happy for her!
Trixie is gentle 12 year old Terrier who has obviously been well loved and spoiled in the past but she fell upon hard times. She was found wandering in a park and had been living rough for 3 days. Trixie was taken to the pound and from there she came into Oldies Club care. She is now in an Oldies Club foster home in Wiltshire, waiting for someone to offer her a permanent home.
Settled immediately: Trixie settled immediately at her foster home. She has been good when left for a few hours. She is housetrained but likes company when she goes outside to toilet. Trixie is a very quiet girl and never barks.
Can live on her own or with other dogs: Trixie has settled quite happily with 3 much bigger dogs in her foster home. However, she would really enjoy being a spoilt only dog. She is good with other dogs but won’t hesitate to tell-off one she feels is being too pushy.
Good with cats: Trixie completely ignored the cats in a home she was visiting.
Good with children: Trixie is happy to be fussed over by children when she is out and about. She should be fine to live with sensible, dog-savvy children of 8+ years old.
Good on walks and in the car: Trixie is very adaptable and would be equally happy with a short walk around a town park or an hour’s ramble across the countryside — but appreciates being carried over nettle patches and mud! She is excellent both on and off lead. She settles down quietly in a crate when travelling but would also be good sitting on the seat or on someone’s knee.
Trixie’s favourite pastimes: Sitting on someone’s knee!
Trixie’s dislikes: Trixie is scared of vacuum cleaners so sits on the sofa well out of the way of the scary monster! She doesn’t like going for a walk in the rain.
Trixie’s perfect home: Trixie would like a home where she can sit on someone’s knee for most of the day, with occasional breaks for walking and eating.
Health notes: Trixie is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea-treated. She has also had mammary tumours removed and has had a dental.
Foster carer’s summary: Quiet, gentle, loving and lovable. Trixie was very traumatised when she first came to us. She is still very quiet but now greets me enthusiastically and will jump up and down in excitement. She is a delight to foster.
If you can offer Trixie a permanent 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
She 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.
