Bramble is a 10-year old Bichon Frise who is looking for a retirement pad with gentle owners who are home most of the day to keep him company.
People – Bramble loves people and seems to gravitate towards men. He is fine with visiting children and loves fuss and attention from everyone he meets.
Dogs – Bramble mixes well with other dogs in the home but hasn’t encountered any while on walks. He will only be rehomed where there is another dog for company.
Cats – Not tested but will probably be fine to live with cats.
In the home – Bramble is almost there with the housetraining but will have the occasional accident overnight. He currently sleeps on the human bed with his foster mum so that she can let him out at night if he needs it. He has been left for a little while and will initially bark but soon settles. He isn’t destructive either. He only has 11 teeth remaining so will need a small bite dry food – wet food gives him an upset tummy.
Out and about – Bramble hasn’t done much exploring yet. He is fine in the car and at the vets but yet to get used to going to walks in the big wide world. He is doing very well walking on the lead in the garden so adopters will need to introduce walks slowly so that he takes them ‘in his stride’.
Type of home – Bramble would be very happy in a retired home. He isn’t high energy and is ready to enjoy his later years. He doesn’t mind children so visiting grandchildren wouldn’t be a problem. He does attach to people so wouldn’t do well in a home where he would be left for more than a couple of hours. He will bark when you leave but soon settles until he hears your care come back anyway! Bramble will be happiest where he has another dog for company.
Bramble is neutered, chipped, vaccinated and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. Potential adopters will be expected to travel to meet him in his foster home in Rhondda, South Wales
