Cozy Brooklyn apartment with a special needs greyhound & 2 loving cats
My partner, Jeff, and I live in Bushwick, Brooklyn, a cool arts-focused neighborhood in Brooklyn. We live in a cozy 2 bedroom, renovated apartment with our greyhound, Pickles, and two cats, Yeti and Toulouse. I'm a writer and Jeff is a graphic designer. We live steps away from the subway which will get you to Manhattan in just 15 minutes and Williamsburg in 10, but we also live steps away from local coffee shops, bars, artist studios, restaurants, grocery stores, and the laundromat. Our greyhound does have special needs currently, but we'll walk you through everything you need. Otherwise, they're quiet, calm, and easy to look after.
Our Home & Location
In Brooklyn in a residential part of Bushwick with artists, local coffee shops, bars, and restaurants. Roberta's pizza is close which is my favorite pizza place in NYC (the Clinton's, Beyoncé, jay-z, etc. have eaten there)... 15 min to Manhattan via the L train steps away.
Responsibilities & Pets
Pickles unfortunately has severe arthritis that he takes pain medication for which he takes well, typically in the morning and at night. We would let you know exactly his schedule and what needs to be done before you would stay at our apartment with everything written out for you and we'll be available 24/7 by phone and email for any questions. Because of his arthritis he is only okay to go on very short walks to go to the bathroom. With that said, we would love to have someone stay that has experience administering medication (pills/drops in food only) and with older/special needs dogs. Unfortunately no running for Pickles or interaction with other dogs as well due to his condition. Besides that, normal feeding for Pickles once in the morning/once at night. He is let out to go to the bathroom around 7-8 am, 12-1, 5-6, and 10 at night. He needs to be let out every 5-6 hours due to the medications he's on currently.
For Toulouse: he is fed soft food in the morning, at dinner time, and before bed....
For Yeti: just make sure there is always hard food in her bowls.
Please do the litter box once a day.
Please make sure the water bowl is always full/clean and the automatic water fountain has water in the tank.
Please check the mail and leave it on the kitchen table/out of your way/whatever is comfortable for you. + More info
