Penny is a 10-year old Cavalier King Charles Spaniel with a Grade four heart murmur. She is being fostered in RCT, South Wales, and has been on a diet since coming into rescue. So far, she has lost 25% of her body fat with another 25% to go, so careful eating habits will need to continue in her new home. Due to her age and health issues we are looking for a long term foster home for Penny, which means there will be no adoption fee and we will continue to pay for her non-routine vets fees.
Penny loves people, big or small. She would happily live with older children. She loves to be fussed and adores contact with people. Penny loves the company of other dogs and will only be rehomed with another calm dog for company. Penny hasn’t been tested with cats. Penny can’t manage the stairs but it is becoming easier as she loses weight, although her poorly leg joint does make this painful. She is fine in the home other than this but does need a regimented toilet regime to avoid accidents – being the older lady that she is. Penny has a dislocating rear elbow joint which makes activity difficult for her. She takes Metacam to ease the pain but exercise does need to be very limited.
Penny is the most beautiful, patient, loving little dog. She loves human company and will happily sit at your feet grunting and snoring like a little pig. She likes to get her own way and is persistent. If she wants to go left you can let her go left or face a long stand-off. Penny is too fat to be a lapdog but will happily sit by your feet for hours. Penny needs a quiet home where she can potter about. Not too many stairs if any. Penny would be better with constant company, lots of tickles and two healthy square meals a day.
Penny is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with her flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet her in her foster home in RCT, South Wales.
