Cute little Alice came into the care of Wonky Pets Rescue after her elderly owner passed away. She’s currently living in a foster home in Swadlincote, Derbyshire, but can be rehomed further afield subject to a home-check and donation.

Alice is an 11 year old Yorkshire Terrier and is the sweetest little soul. She is a happy, loving, quiet little dog who is very dear and gentle. Alice is great with other small dogs and would love another small, gentle canine companion to live with. She is okay with dog-savvy cats but can occasionally bark and try to chase them. She hasn’t been around small children but would be fine with older, visiting grandchildren.

Alice is okay to be left for a few hours especially when she has other canine friends but wouldn’t be happy be left for long periods, and she likes to sleep in the bedroom at night. She has several beds she would bring to her new home. She gets super excited when her harness and lead come out and she absolutely loves going out; she travels well in the car too.

Alice arrived quite underweight and the Rescue was told she needed hand-feeding and was picky with her food but, since swopping her to a food that she enjoys, she is eating well, doesn’t need hand feeding and has gained weight. She does have a history of ear infections too, but she has received Osurnia gel treatment which should really help and mean she doesn’t need daily ear cleans.

Alice developed diabetes over the past 12 months which has led to her getting cataracts which affect her eyesight. She can still see light and dark and movement and will find her favourite orange ball which she loves to play with. Once she has plotted out the house, she will find her way around well. Her diabetes is being kept well under control with twice daily injections of insulin which she will, of course, need to remain on for life, so this is a undertaking a new owner should give careful consideration to. She does drink a lot due to her diabetes so will need access to fresh water at all times. This means that sometimes she can have an accident in the house but she will also use a puppy pad at night.

Alice is spayed, vaccinated, microchipped and flea/worm treated. She has had a dental and a large hernia repaired. She will be rehomed with 5 weeks’ free pet insurance and the Rescue are especially keen to hear from people who have previous experience of diabetic dogs.
