Milo and Phoebe are 10-year-old Yorkshire Terriers who need to find a new home due to their owner’s long work hours resulting in them being left alone for long periods throughout the day. Milo and Phoebe are not related but have been together all of their life so they are looking for a home where they can stay together.
Milo and Phoebe are on Freshfields Animal Rescue‘s waiting list, but are still in their home while a place becomes available. If you could offer them a home, it would help ease the pressure for places at Freshfields.
Milo and Phoebe are very friendly and affectionate dogs. Milo is the more clingy of the two and loves attention, whereas Phoebe is more independent. They get along well with other dogs and could live with dogs in their new home, preferably dogs of a similar size and age. They have also been around cats in the family without any concerns, so may be able to live with a cat in their new home.
Milo and Phoebe have grown up with a child who was only 3 years old when they arrived. They are also used to visiting children of various ages, but due to their age, Freshfields feel they would be best suited to a quieter home where any children are over the age of 10.
Due to the current situation, where they are being left alone for long periods, little Phoebe has started to toilet in the house. This could be behavioural but there is also a possibility of something medical, such as incontinence. Milo has a history of fits and is reported to have had around 2 fits a year. Unfortunately neither dog has seen a vet for a long time, so Freshfields hope to have more information on this once the dogs have seen the vet at the rescue. However, given their age, it is possible that they may have several medical issues, so their new owner must be prepared for the responsibility and cost of this.
Ideally, Freshfields are looking for a home where they will not be left alone for more than a couple of hours, with someone patient who can help Phoebe with her toilet training.
Milo and Phoebe are a delightful pair who will make wonderful companions. Could you offer them a home together?
Milo and Pheoebe are not at Freshfields kennels, so you need to phone first to arrange an appointment to meet them.
