3/2/19 – We are so pleased to hear that little Holly has found a new home – so quickly! – and has gone to live with another oldie dog, in Kent. Have fun, little Holly.
Poor little Holly sadly finds herself back at Chilterns Dog Rescue Society after only a short time in her new home, as her adopter has suddenly become ill and is unable to look after Holly.
Holly is a very pretty 9-year-old girl who is fairly small, weighing just over 8 kg. Until being in her recent home, poor Holly had had little in the way of love or home comforts during her life. She has proved to be a quiet, gentle girl though who is ready to put her trust in new people.
Holly’s recent owner told CDRS: “Holly is a loving, very well house-trained lady. She is not at all destructive but is quite lively and full of life. I shall miss her deeply“. It is so, so sad for all concerned.
She cannot manage long walks, but Holly really looks forward to the two shorter spells of exercise she has each day. She walks calmly on the lead without pulling. The rest of the day, she is more than happy to cosy-up on a comfortable dog bed in CDRS’s office and watch the world go by.
Holly is sociable with other dogs but has no experience of living with children or cats. A quiet home with a secure garden to explore and someone to take her for short walks and then keep her company would be ideal. Holly is an excellent car traveller.
Holly was very poorly when she was originally at CDRS. A series of scans and tests confirmed that a valve in her heart was not working efficiently, resulting in a grade 4 heart murmur. Medication has proved very successful though – she is no longer breathless and her heart rate is steady. She will need to take medication for life – she has her tablets one hour before food in the morning and afternoon. Holly’s condition cannot be fixed, but with careful management she can enjoy a good quality of life. Holly has been rechecked by both her ex-owner’s vet and by CDRS’s vet, and the medication is working well. Holly is neutered.
Holly richly deserves a happy retirement and will make a loyal friend to someone who understands her health issues and will give her the very best care. Could Holly find happiness with you?
