Daugh­ter and dad seek home

Glamorgan Gazette - - News - ABBY BOLTER abby.bolter@waleson­line.co.uk

STAFF at Dogs Trust Brid­gend are look­ing for a spe­cial new home for an elderly and par­tially deaf dad and daugh­ter duo.

The two Ter­ri­ers, 15-year-old Ed­die and 12-year-old Poppy ar­rived at the Pen-y-Fai re­hom­ing cen­tre af­ter their owner be­came ill.

With a com­bined hu­man age of 190, th­ese lov­ing OADs (old age dogs) are ea­gerly await­ing a sec­ond chance at hap­pi­ness in a for­ever home where they can spend their twi­light years.

De­spite be­ing par­tially deaf, and Ed­die los­ing his sight, the pair are out to prove that age is just a num­ber as they are both ac­tive dogs who love their walks and a trot around off lead.

An­gela Wether­all, re­hom­ing cen­tre man­ager at Dogs Trust Brid­gend, said: “We would love to see Ed­die and Poppy re­homed to­gether so they can en­joy their twi­light years with a lov­ing fam- ily. De­spite be­ing a ma­ture pair, they still have a lot of love to give and would make the per­fect com­pan­ions for a lov­ing fam­ily.”

Both dogs can live with chil­dren aged 11 and above and would love a re­laxed but ac­tive home so they can still get out and about in the fresh air. They can be left for up to four hours but this would need to be built up grad­u­ally whilst they set­tle in.
