Pip is a gorgeous 15yr old Jack Russell boy, he is castrated, microchipped, flea and worm treated and will be rehomed with 5 weeks free pet insurance.
Pip came to us after his owner passed away and the family said they couldn't care for him, sadly he arrived with a badly infected mouth and a soooo many rotten teeth he needed all but 5 of them out! He has just finished a long course of antibiotics so his mouth is all healed and he feels so much better. He does also have mature cateracts which limit his vision, especially inside the house when its darker but he can still make out shapes and light and dark so gets around well once he has plotted out where he is.
Please DO NOT be put off my Pip's age, he is fit as a fiddle and absolutely LOVES his walks, he jumps around getting really excited when getting ready to go out and enjoys a couple of good walks a day. He is a super friendly little lad who loves people and has been great with other dogs he has met, he could happily live with another small older neutered dog for company (large or bouncy dogs would be too much) or he can enjoy being the only dog in the home.
He is a clean boy in the house, he does like his home comforts and likes to join you on the sofa and wants to sleep quietly in his own bed in the bedroom with you at night, left downstairs he will bark.
He is an older boy with sight impairment so will understandably be a bit unsettled coming into a new home so anyone applying MUST be prepared to give him time and patience to settle in. He will need someone at home for most of the day. He will reward you ten times over with his super personality.
Pip is eating well now his mouth is better, he travels ok in the car and loves playing with his ball and toys, particularly squeaky ones
He can live with older sensible children 10yrs plus and fine with visiting children of any age that wont startle him.
He will make a fantastic companion for a mature fit and active person who loves to walk.
Pip is being fostered in Swadlincote, Derbys but can be rehomed further afield subject to homecheck and donation of £195
