Home Found- Lil

Lil has found a home who will love her and help her over her loss.  She’s heading off to live with three other very friendly beagles of a similar age group and two lovely humans who will take great care of her during her dotage.

Lil is a bitch that has been spayed. She was purchased a few years ago on TradeMe from a breeder in Thames. Her owner Sid passed away last week at the age of 92. He had been single with no immediate family, and dogs have been his companions all his life. Until 3 months ago Sid had been at home with Lil, and she moved with Sid to a rest home in West Auckland until last week. Lil is nearly 12 years old. She has been seen by the vet (Massey Heights Veterinary Hospital256 Don Buck Road, Massey 832 4895) a couple of times in recent months for checkups. I believe all vaccinations are up to date.
 
Lil is a classic couch potato. I suspect she isn’t to very lively due to arthritis. She doesn’t move with great ease but is mobile nonetheless. She does occasionally urinate inside. I suspect she wasn’t getting enough time outside due to the owner’s illness. The vet prescribed Incurin tablets last month for incontinence. I believe this has helped. She was also tested for suspected Cushings Disease without any conclusive results. She is a little overweight probably due the owner constantly overfeeding her. Her weight has come down over recent weeks as the owner’s health declined and others took on the responsibility of caring for her in the rest home.
 
Lil is currently being looked after in kennels in West Auckland.  She has a very calm, placid temperament, very good around people and other animals. She cohabitated with a cat at the rest home and visiting dogs created no problems.
 
The executors of Sid’s estate are seeking a home for Lil. Any help in finding her a suitable home to live out the rest of her days would be greatly appreciated.  We hope to be able to place her with someone within the next week if at all possible.
