As long as they have each other, Ted and Penny are fine to be left for an hour or two when you need to pop out, but they really enjoy human interaction so wouldn’t suit a home with people who go out to work, or work from home in a role that isn’t flexible enough for you to interact with them.

They are both good with other dogs but Penny can be nervous if a bigger dog suddenly appears and looms over her. Ted and Penny haven’t lived with cats, and in their one meeting with a cat since coming into foster care, Ted barked at the cat, so we are looking for a cat-free home for them. Ted and Penny are fine with children and they used to have respectful grandchildren visit their previous home.

They should be fine to live with calm, well-supervised children aged 11+ who understand that older dogs need plenty of quiet time to themselves. Ted loves cuddles, being the centre of attention, and treats. Penny likes to investigate things and enjoys pottering around the garden.

Ted is not keen on vets and Penny doesn’t like loud noises or people stepping over her. Ted and Penny need a home with someone around for most of the day as they love to be with people. They need a nice garden as Penny in particular enjoys being outside.

They need a home without cats, where any dogs and children are older, calm ones. A home on one level, or where there is a stairgate to prevent Penny climbing up (she can’t get back down) would be safest. And it goes without saying that they must have a new home together as they are such devoted friends.

Ted and Penny are neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and have been worm and flea treated. Since coming into foster care, Penny has had a harmless lump removed from her neck and had a dental. Ted has also had a dental and had to have lots of teeth out.
