This duo of lurchery loveliness is Jet, aged 7, and his best friend Sasha, aged 6, who came into the Oldies Club rescue after their owner sadly died. They are in an Oldies Club foster home in Bardney, Lincolnshire, waiting for someone to offer them a permanent home together. They can be rehomed within a 2-hour drive of Bardney (which is near Lincoln).
Jet and Sasha’s ideal home: These beauties have a very strong bond and they need to find a new home together. They can live with dogs and older children but must have a cat-free home.
Settled well in foster care: It took Jet and Sasha a few days to settle in at their foster home.
Can be left for short periods: Once settled in, they are OK to be left alone for a few hours. They would be best in a home where they aren’t left for a long time every day, but they should cope OK with part-time working hours, so long as you gradually build up the time they are left.
Good with dogs but not cats: Jet and Sasha are good with dogs and they could live with other dogs. However they must have a cat-free home.
OK with older children: Jet and Sasha have lovely temperaments, but they haven’t met any children since coming into our care. Their foster carer suggests they would be fine to live with dog-savvy children aged 8+.
Enjoy walks: Jet and Sasha are good dogs on walks. In foster they have only been walked on the lead but their recall is good when they are in the garden. Jet likes to walk on the left and slightly in front but he responds well to correction. Sasha likes to walk on your right. Their foster carer has only been able to take them for 20-minute walks, but they will easily manage two-and-a-half miles.
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 isn’t so keen as he pants a lot, but he will lie down eventually.
Jet’s favourite pastimes: Playtime with a frisbee, plus walks and cuddles, and he likes to be next to you on the sofa.
Sasha’s favourite pastimes: Playtime – she also loves the frisbee – but she will play with anything and she gets so excited. Sasha loves to snuggle into you, or another dog, or between her duvet.
Dislikes: Jet gets worried by overexcited dogs and he will run to his crate where he feels safe. He picks up on your emotions easily. Sasha is mostly unfazed, but sometimes on a walk something might spook her.
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 developed a red lump on his muzzle that the vet thinks is an infected fatty lump, so he’s having a course of antibiotics and anti-inflammatory. He also has a soft lump on his elbow.
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 within a 2-hour drive of their foster home, 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.
