26/7/20 – Lola and Daisy have gone to their new home!
Lola and Daisy are adorable 11 year old Dachshund x Terrier sisters who came into the Oldies Club rescue due to their owner’s ill health. They are in a foster home in Chelmsford, Essex, waiting to find their forever home.
Good girls in foster: Lola and Daisy settled at their foster home within a week and are proving to be such good girls. They are fine to be left on their own and they just cuddle up on the sofa together when you leave them for a few hours.
Love living with other dogs: Lola and Daisy love the company of their fosterer’s own dogs and they have fitted into the pack really well. Their foster carer would like them to be rehomed to live with other dogs.
Good with cats: There are two cats in their foster home and there have been no problems with Lola and Daisy and the cats.
Great with visiting children: Grandchildren aged 4 to 8 have visited and Lola and Daisy have been fine with them and love to cuddle up to them.
Love walks: Lola and Daisy love going out for walks, either a road walk or over the local park where they love to run around. They haven’t been let off lead while in foster care but it doesn’t seem that they would do a runner. They are happy to meet other dogs and they like people saying hello to them. Their ideal length of walk is about 30 minutes daily, either as one long walk or as two 15-minute walks.
Excellent in the car: They are very good travellers and no problem at all in the car.
Like to chill: Lola and Daisy are very chilled dogs that like to sleep on the sofa or cuddle on your lap. Daisy likes to hide under a cushion or blanket. If the weather is nice they will lie out in garden in the sun.
Scared of balloons: The only thing that their foster carer has found that they are frightened of is balloons.
Lola and Daisy’s ideal home: A quiet, adult or older-teenager home, with plenty of time for cuddles and with other dogs for company.
Health notes: They are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have been wormed and flea-treated. Lola is fit and healthy at the moment. Daisy has had mammary tumours removed which were tested and she has sadly been diagnosed with high-grade cancer. Daisy is fine in herself at this time and is loving life, but her new owners will obviously need to be happy to take on a dog with a terminal illness and be determined to give her the very best life possible for her remaining time.
More from their foster carer: “Lola and Daisy are friendly, lovable, gentle and kind. These little sisters have been a delight to foster and if I didn’t have my own 4 dogs I would be keeping them myself as they have fitted into our family so well and so deserve a loving forever home where they can stay together for as long as possible.”
If you would like to offer Lola and Daisy a permanent home together, 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
They 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 them.
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.
