28/12/18 – Gorgeous Milly has gone to her new home!
Cheery Milly is a Springer Spaniel of 12 years, who came into the Oldies Club rescue when her owner’s circumstances changed. She’s in a foster home in Sleaford, Lincolnshire waiting for someone to offer her a loving forever home.
A good girl in foster: Milly was a bit nervy for the first few days at her foster home but then settled down just fine.
Loves company: Milly frets if she’s left alone and after a while she will helpfully bark, so you can find her again! She would like to be able to spend most, if not all, of the time with her owners.
Great with dogs: Milly is very happy sharing her foster home with two other dogs, so she should be content sharing her new home too.
Good with cats: Milly is absolutely fine with the resident cat and chickens at her foster home. With careful introductions, she should be just as good with cats at her new home.
Good with children: We were told that Milly has happily lived with children before. Since coming into foster she has been fine when meeting children on walks, and we think she would enjoy a home with children. She’s such a sociable girl, she really is a friend to all!
Really loves walks: Milly is a bright, active and, well, springy! At the moment she has a half hour walk, twice a day. She’s great both on and off the lead. She’s deaf, so she has no recall at all but she will check where you are regularly, even if she’s busy exploring.
Ok in the car: Milly worries about getting in and out of the car, but she’s excellent once she is in and usually goes straight to sleep!
Milly’s favourite pastimes: Milly mostly just wants to be near you. She will entertain herself with a bone, but her favourite thing is definitely fuss!
Milly’s dislikes: She doesn’t like to wake up and find that you have disappeared. As she is deaf, some things can startle her and so consideration about letting her know where you are helps prevent her getting anxious.
Milly’s ideal home: As she is so full of energy, Milly would enjoy having children to play with, or at least lots of walks and playtime with you. Other dogs would be jolly friends for her, but the most important thing is to have someone for company most of the time, so she can relax.
Health notes: Milly is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and flea/worm treated. She’s completely healthy, just deaf.
Milly’s foster carers told us: “Milly is active, loving and social, but she can be a little loud! She is a beautiful, lovely dog who quickly gets attached to people and will be an amazing addition to any home with attention and love to give to her.”
If you would like to offer Milly a permanent home, please read 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
Milly can be rehomed anywhere on the UK mainland, 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.
