Mikey is a perfectly pointy 10 year old Greyhound boy who is in an Oldies Club foster home in Bury St Edmunds, Suffolk, waiting for someone to offer him a lovely permanent home. Mikey is happy to live with other dogs. He has settled well with the small dog and medium-sized dog at his foster home and he is content being around them. They haven’t bonded particularly, but they live happily with each other. Mikey is also friendly to dogs he meets on walks.
There are no cats in Mikey’s foster home, but his foster carer took him to meet a friend’s cat and all went well. The cat was lying on the bed and Mikey just had a good sniff round and then lay down on the floor. So we think Mikey will be fine to live with a cat that is used to dogs. He also ignores the pet rabbit at his foster home. Bless him!
Mikey is living with an 11 year old child and is pretty laid back. He is also very tolerant of a visiting toddler, but we think he would be happier with considerate children aged 5 years plus. Mikey’s favourite pastimes are eating, sleeping!! – usually upside down. He doesn’t like thunderstorms; he shakes uncontrollably and will usually take himself into the bathroom where he feels safe. Mikey is a lovely companion who seeks a quiet life. He would enjoy living in a home with a retired couple where he can get lots of cuddles and just enjoy a quieter pace of life.
Mikey is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped and has been wormed and flea treated. He has a grade 2-3 heart murmur, but it does not bother him. When he had his dental, the vet found a lump inside his mouth so took a biopsy. The report came back that they couldn’t identify any cells, so we are keeping an eye on the lump in the hope it disappears of its own accord. If not he will have another biopsy.
