Kia is a 12 year old female Patterdale Terrier Cross. Poor Kia is sadly looking for a new home as her elderly owner has now moved into a care home. Kia has since been left alone in the property but family members have been calling in to feed and walk her, however this is only a short term solution and so we are desperate to find her a new family as soon as possible. This is not the first time that poor Kia has found herself in the situation as her owner rescued her in 2015.
Kia has been described as the perfect dog who is friendly, affectionate and loving. She is calm and well behaved in the home and enjoys company. She is generally quiet, well-mannered and exceptionally clean. We feel that she will make a fantastic companion for a retired person/couple. Kia is in wonderful health for her age and it is almost hard to believe that she is 12! She does have the start of a cataract in one of her eyes but this is not causing her any issues at the moment.
Unfortunately Kia does not like other dogs and will need to be the only pet in the home. She may bark/lunge at some dogs on walks, particularly smaller/terrier types, so care will need to be taken with this. She does not like cats. Kia has been around older visiting children but not youngsters so we are looking for a home where any children are over the age of 16.
She will benefit from a home with someone around for most of the day but could also be left alone for a couple of hours. This poor girl must be so confused without her beloved owner, it is truly heart breaking. We desperately hope that she is given a second chance soon.
*Please note that Kia is much bigger than a Patterdale Terrier and is more of a small medium sized dog.
PLEASE NOTE THAT KIA IS CURRENTLY ON OUR WAITING LIST AND IS STILL IN THE CARE OF HER OWNER WHILE AWAITING A NEW HOME. PLEASE CALL US ON 0151 931 1604 TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO MEET HER.
