Please help Jet & Sasha by sharing this page!
4/10/2001 Jet and Sasha have gone to their forever home and are looking forward to a lovely life together there.

Jet (right, age 7, boy) and inseparable buddy Sasha (left, age 6, girl) are two wonderful Lurchers looking for a home together. They came into the Oldies Club rescue after their owner sadly passed away. They’re currently in a foster home in Bardney near Lincoln.
Jet and Sasha’s ideal home: They are devoted to each other and need to stay together. They need a good sized garden, no resident cats but other dogs would be fine.
Settled in nicely: It took Jet and Sasha just a few days to relax in their new surroundings.
Can be left for short periods: They are OK to be left alone for a few hours, as long as you gradually build up to it. They would be best in a home where they aren’t left for a long time every day.
Good with dogs but not cats: Jet and Sasha are good with dogs and they could live with one or two. Cats and small furries would not enjoy their company though, as being chased often offends.
OK with older children: Their foster carer thinks they would be fine to live with dog-savvy children aged 8+. They do need plenty of peace at their age though and Lurchers are renowned for their lounging proclivities.
Like their walks: Jet and Sasha walk nicely on the lead and seem to be fine with all the dogs they’ve met. Their foster carer has only been able to take them for 20-minute walks, but they will easily manage two-and-a-half miles. In a secure field or garden, they both love to chase after a frisbee and Sasha will play with anything. You can’t beat a chance for a little zoomies!
OK in the car: Sasha is very good in the car and she prefers to stand up. Jet is well-behaved in the car but must find it a bit stressful as he pants a lot. He does lie down eventually.
Jet’s favourite pastimes: Playtime with a frisbee, walks and cuddles, especially sofa cuddles.
Sasha’s favourite pastimes: Playtime is when her silly side really shows. She also loves to snuggle into you, or another dog, or just into her blankie.
Dislikes: In the home, Jet can get worried by overexcited dogs and he will run to his crate where he feels safe. He’s very sensitive to his humans’ moods so he needs a harmonious home. Sasha is much more relaxed, only on walks does she sometimes get spooked by something sudden.
Health notes: They are both neutered, vaccinated and microchipped, and they have been wormed and flea treated. Since coming into the Oldies Club rescue they have both had dentals. The only health issue to mention is that Jet has a couple of fatty lumps and one had got infected so he’s had a course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatories.
More from their foster carer: “Jet and Sasha are sensitive, playful, loving and friendly dogs. In fact, they are the easiest foster dogs we have ever had. They have been no trouble at all, good at the vets, and friendly with everyone. They have met a few small dogs on walks and been very well-behaved. They have been clean in the home and have had no accidents. Sasha is the more playful and outgoing of the two, but she is the one to whine if separated, not just from Jet but also from her human. They are amazing dogs and it’s a pleasure being able to foster them.”
If you would like to offer Jet and Sasha 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 – the closer to her foster home the better though, subject to a satisfactory home visit. Note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to collect 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.
