Phyllis is a little 12 year old girl from Romania, who is definitely at a time in her life where a comfy sofa and a kind family is needed. She is still a little withdrawn but we are sure that with time and love she will come out of her shell. She is a little dog who will sit on the sofa next to you all night and not move. Initially she may not engage very much but in time we can see that she may like some affection. Life has been a little overwhelming for her probably and she will need to settle down before she starts showing her lovely colours.
All our dogs are vet checked on arrival, she had a comprehensive blood profile done and a dental. She has some arthritis and also a grade 4 heart murmur. Whilst many vets may do not suggest to medicate at this stage, the latest research in cardiology show that early medication of mitral valve disease delays congestive heart failure significantly. As a team have therefore elected to put her on heart medication at this early stage. The medication bought online with a prescription costs around 8 pounds a month.
Phyllis is really a little dog looking for someone with the intention to make a difference in the world and offer a homeless dog who has had so little her entire life, a comfortable retirement filled with nice little walks and love. She is good with other dogs, not particularly engaged, and will prefer calm and gentle dogs.
IDEAL FAMILY: A loving home able to take care of her in the years she has ahead of her, take her on nice walks, and give her cuddles as and when she ask for them. We place our senior dogs in adult only homes as they prefer a calmer environment. She is fine with other calm dogs and probably cats too.
