Molly (left) and Chino are a pair of 12yr old shih tzu sisters, they are spayed, vaccinated, microchipped, flea and worm treated and have both had extensive dentals with us which needed multiple extractions. They will be rehomed with 5 weeks free pet insurance.
Molly and Chino came to us after their owner sadly passed away, the family thought there would be no other option but to put them to sleep as they were elderly with health issues but we were more than happy to step in for these gorgeous girls.
Molly had previously been diagnosed with cushings disease, we reviewed all of her tests and confirmed her diagnosis. She has also had a dental and a benign lump removed from under her tongue. With a prescription from the vet her medication will cost around £40 per month.
Chino has also had a large dental with extractions with us and her health check revealed a Grade 3 heart murmur. She has had a heart scan which diagnosed an enlargement of the left atrium due to mitral valve disease, common in small older dogs and bad teeth can also be a contributing factor so now those are sorted that will help. To slow down the effects of the disease she has started on heart medication which with a vet prescription would cost around £25 per month.
So now we have covered off all of the girls health issues lets concentrate on the great bits.......they are absolutely blooming adorable but are very needy girls, in particular Molly who likes to know where you are at all times and will bark if left.
These girls are so very sweet and so loving they really are adorable. They are super friendly and love everyone they meet, they are extremely bonded and go everywhere together.
They are house trained, love their food and enjoy their gentle walks, they travel brilliantly in the car and love going on adventures. They will need to sleep on the bed with you otherwise Molly wont settle, she likes to be as close to you as possible.
The girls are fine with other calm, small dogs (large boisterous dogs scare them a bit and they aren't afraid to tell them to go away), they are ok with cats and fine with gentle sensible visiting children who wont try pulling them around but wouldn't want to live permanently with resident children. They will be best as the only dogs in their new home so they can have all the attention.
We know that given their ongoing health issues its a big ask for someone to take them on but they will give back ten fold with their great personalities and loving company.
If their new home is close to our vets in Swadlincote we may be able to offer support with their medication but will be unable to do this elsewhere sadly.
They will need a home with a nice enclosed garden as they love to potter out side and with someone who is fit enough to take them on some nice little walks. They are used to having plenty of company so need someone around all of the time.
Being fostered in Swadlincote and you must be able to travel to meet/adopt. A homecheck and adoption donation of £250 applies.
