I recently lost my lovely Flossie, a 16yo shihtzu/maltese cross who was the love of my life, as I have been widowed for 15 months after 65 years happily married. I have lived in the same house for the past 21years, and intend staying here. I lead a very quiet life, lots of visits from children and grand-children, all of whom are adults so there are no ankle-biters anymore. They all own dogs, and in the event of my circumstances changing my daughter has promised there will always be a home for a pet of mine. I am really looking for a adult/senior female who would fit into my quiet lifestyle, apart from shopping once or twice a week and going to the library, she would not be left alone for any length of time, and can also come with me in the car if that suits her. I walked Flossie on short walks most days until the arthritis in her back legs made walking too painful, so would still be prepared to walk her if she agrees. I would prefer a small affectionate girl who is happy with cuddles and sleeps on my bed. As a pensioner my budget is limited and does not come into the $3000/$6000 range, so please do not apply if that is what you consider price range. I am quite happy to travel up to 150kms to meet and greet.
