19/2/2020 Cute pair, Dino and Odie, are happy to report that they have gone to their new home.

Doubly cute, Dino and Odie are a pair of Yorkshire Terrier brothers aged 13 and 12 years respectively. They are fostered in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, through Wonky Pets Rescue and can be rehomed further afield subject to a home-check.
Dino is a bit more independent and likes to be up on the sofa near you. He will have a fuss and give you kisses, but it’s on his terms and he doesn’t like to be touched by either humans or other dogs when he is asleep on the sofa or in his bed and he will give a warning nip/grumble or remove himself. Any other time, he is a sociable little chap.
Odie loves to be close to you and will curl up round your feet or up on sofa with you. He is very active his for age and is still eating very well considering 13 teeth were removed recently. He gets over-excited when the leads and harnesses come out and this is being worked on, but he calms down as soon as he is on his walk. Odie does slightly guard the leads or the particular toy that has his interest at times.
Both Dino and Odie sleep cleanly and quietly down in the kitchen overnight. The lads have been impeccably behaved in the car, at the vets, on walks and a trip around the pet shop. They are totally non-reactive to children, adults, traffic, etc., and all other dogs encountered so far. They have previously lived with foster cats whom they were good with too. (A bit of chasing by Dino but Odie mothered them.)
They can both play roughly and squabble over the same squeaky toy but, after a noisy tug of war, one gives in. Both are non-aggressive around food. They will bark at a knock at the door but then are quiet. They love lots of company, so won’t be suitable to be left alone all day and, although they have lived with small children previously, they do need a quieter home with resident children aged 10 years plus but visiting, younger children would be fine.
Their fosterer says: “Odie and Dino are little treasures and a pleasure to foster; whoever is lucky enough to have these boys will be blessed.”
Dino and Odie are neutered, microchipped, vaccinated, flea and worm treated and will be rehomed with 5 weeks’ free pet insurance and a free rehoming pack. They have both also had a dental, removing quite a lot of bad teeth but their mouths now feel much better and their breath is much sweeter.
