Our Home & Location
My house is in Andover Hampshire.A one bedroomed town house, with large kitchen/diner, lounge, large bedroom, bathroom and small courtyard garden. Although very pretty in the summer months, as with most gardens in the winter not much colour and nothing will need attention as most of my potted plants with be stored away for the winter. I have a pond with fish, but they are not fed in the winter months, so will not need any attention.Private parking (car port) immediately outside my front door. Very quiet neighbourhood with friendly neighbours, minutes to town and shops and open countryside.

Responsibilities & Pets
You have of course to be a pet lover, my dogs especially, who are both rescued ex-breeding dogs. Bella is a chocolate Labrador who is approximately is now 12/13 years old and an old lady now. Bella was confirmed with Pancreatitis in July of this year, she takes medication for life and it is given in tablet form once a day. She is a very quiet dog who does love attention, and very easy to look after. Napier my little Beagle arrived in September 2017. She is still a very scared little things, and is wary of strangers. She gets better month by month, and is now not so nervous of strangers, but still wary. A She is also a quiet little dog except at feeding times. She is a very pretty little thing and will make a very happy little dog as time goes by. Napier is on lifetime medication, as she has had 2 fits in the past. The medication is given TWICE DAILY AND MUST BE GIVEN, AM AND PM. she takes it in her food. The cats as usual do their own thing, and typically only want attention when it suits them. My fish need no attention. The dogs will need to be taken for a walk twice a day, longer walk am and a short walk pm. Bella and Napier are really good buddies, and Napier is always curled up with Bella in her bed. I do hope you will enjoy your stay in my comfortable home with my pets and if you need any further information on the dogs or cats, please don't hesitate to mail me.
