Jimmy is a 7-year old Cavalier who is being fostered in Cardiff, South Wales. He is looking for a quiet retirement home where he has company for most of the day and at least one other dog to play with.
Health Issues – Jimmy is deaf and has paralysis on right side of face. He only has one fang left as all his other teeth have been removed. Jimmy has a grade 2/3 heart murmur. He is prone to ear infections and is on Surolan antibiotic and Epiotic cleaning fluid. His ears will need regular cleaning to prevent recurrence.
People – Jimmy is great around adults and indifferent to children. He gets irritated when having his ears cleaned but not aggressive.
Dogs – Jimmy has been really good with every other dog he has met and we will only rehome him where there is at least one other dog for company.
Cats – He hasn’t been in contact with any cats or small animals
In the home – Jimmy will require continued toilet training although he has improved a great deal and there is just the odd accident ever now and then. He has only been left for an hour at a time and does get a bit uncomfortable – he pulls his bedding out and he will scratch at doors if they are shut and he is on own. Jimmy likes to eat any food available so needs to be monitored during feeding times so he doesn’t put on weight!
Out and about – He is fine walking on lead when with other dogs also fine off lead when with them. When out on his own he will stop and start needs encouragement to move forward but short, regular walks are important to keep him in top shape.
Type of home – He needs a doggy companion and someone who will be with him most of the time and give lots of cuddles and a secure, safe place for his retirement. He would prefer his humans to be around for most of the day as he isn’t keen on being left. Jimmy is happy to live with children but hasn’t been cat tested.
