Reference No – D 2020 – 087
Age: 12 years old
Breed: Chinese crested
Fostered in: Crewe
Health conditions: Mario is an elderly dog, so has the typical age related conditions- he doesn’t need long walks as his legs are a bit arthritic, he is blind in one eye but has good vision in the other, and has few remaining teeth after a recent dental. Mario’s heart is very strong, and he is on no long term medication.
Mario is an elderly crested powder puff variety that is a very people orientated dog. He may be older but is still very waggy tailed and likes to stretch up for a fuss once he gets to know you. Mario loves to potter around the house like a little shadow and loves his nap time too.
People: Mario once he knows you loves getting stroked and is always very happy to see you. Mario will dance around to get your attention and loves being near to people. He is a very affectionate dog and although shy to start with his real character soon comes through.
Can live with children: Due to Mario’s age older children or adult only home would be best for Mario.
Can live with cats: Mario totally ignores the cat in the foster home.
Can live with other dogs: Mario lives with a variety of dog’s in the foster home with no issue, he has previously lived in a house with multiple dog’s in cramped conditions before being rescued, and has no issues living with others or being an only dog.
In the home: Mario is a quiet dog in the house, due to his previous living conditions Mario arrived not house trained but is now learning those skills again. Potential adopters will need to have the patience to continue to work with Mario on this. Mario doesn’t show any inclination to play with toys and is fine to be left for short periods. Due to his age Mario needs someone around most of the day to give him companionship and to also continue the house training.
Out and about: Mario is an elderly dog that walks well on a lead, but will not need a lot of exercise, he would happily live as a house dog if he has access to a garden and due to his previous life Mario is a bit unsure of the world outside the security of his house
Type of home: Mario deserves a retirement home where he will be loved, given a comfy bed and a garden to explore. Mario would suit a home with someone home all day, and with adults to provide a quiet environment for him. Mario could live with other calm, quiet dogs or as an only dog. Mario will need owners who are committed to keeping up his coat care, and providing a retirement home for a dog that has sadly been neglected by his previous owners and who deserves to be spoilt and loved for the rest of his days.
Mario is neutered and up to date with his flea and worming treatment. He is currently awaiting vaccinations.
Due to Covid19 lock down restrictions, we are only accepting local re homing applications.
