Lovely family home with pool, close to beach with little dog
Hi my husband and I have been in our house for nearly 30 years. We both work and like to take holidays. Our children are adults now and live independently. We have a much loved dog that was a companion dog for our daughter.
We would love someone to come and live in our house and take care of our dog.
Our Home & Location
Our house is a comfy family home on a quiet suburban street. It is 2 storey with bedrooms downstairs and upstairs, 2 living areas, new kitchen, 2 bathrooms. It has a small backyard and a swimming pool in the front. It is air conditioned for the very warm Adelaide Summer and is heated with gas heaters in the 2 living areas in the Winter months. It is 20 minutes from the airport and a half hour walk to the beach, 5 minutes walk to the train station that takes you to the city in half an hour. It is less than 10 minutes to drive to the popular beachside precinct of Glenelg with many cafes and restaurants. It is a 5 minute drive or 15 minute walk to Westfield Shopping complex at Marion.
Responsibilities & Pets
Chico is a Pomeranian/chihuahua he was bought as a companion dog for our chronically ill daughter so he is use to sleeping on top of the bed with someone. His favourite spot is on the kitchen couch looking out the window barking at whatever goes along his street. Chico has a doggy door to go in and out, he needs someone at home to take him for walks and play with, needs someone always at bedtime (ours as he sleeps anytime you do). He is use to us going out to work, or for dinner or visiting friends, but he needs to fed at 5.30 ish in the evening. But as he will miss us we would need a caring person to spend some day time hours with him so he doesn't get anxious. He enjoys a daily walk. He doesn't have road sense so is on a harness and lead. Chico needs someone that can give him some tlc.
