Two loving doggies need company over Christmas
We are looking for a special couple or single to look after our gorgeous fur babies, Lily (15yo and a little deaf) and Charlie (4yo and Cheeky!). We've had these kind hearted little dogs for a couple of years and as they are rescue dogs who've been through a lot, we prefer to have them looked after here, in their home, so they don't think they've been abandoned again. They can be left alone for up to 6 hours and they are very good as long as they are together. We live in a beautiful renovated Queenslander 7km from the city and a 7min walk to the train.
Our Home & Location
Our house is a spacious renovated Queenslander with a big back deck to laze around on and a lovely back yard and garden. Fully equipped gourmet kitchen and reverse cycle air conditioning. There is excellent public transport, a large local shopping centre and plenty of little cafes, all within walking distance. We have Netflix and wi-fi as well. We are strictly a non-smoking household.
Responsibilities & Pets
Lily and Charlie are pretty low maintenance, but love to have their people around therefore we only leave them alone for 6-7 hours at a time. Lily is happy finding a patch of sun to sleep in, and Charlie just wants to be cuddled and sleeping on your lap all day. Don't be fooled by Lily's age - she is very playful and active and can outrun and outplay Charlie any day of the week! They are fed twice a day and Lily has some tablets popped into her meals for her arthritis which keeps her very mobile. They are walked for 20-30minutes once a day, and we prefer that two people walk them as they are VERY active on their walks, however if you’re very confident in you’re animal handling skills then please apply. We don't ever have them off lead as Lily can't hear us very well and Charlie has a strong prey drive and if he chases a bird/cat/whatever he won't respond to commands to stop. They LOVE being brushed so if you feel like it you can brush their coats every day, but they don't need it if you don't feel like it.
