Following a check-up at the vets, it was revealed that unfortunately she has failing kidneys. So a special diet is needed to help her kidneys do their job properly. Apart from that, lots of love and attention is what she craves the most.
This lovely lady is currently living locally with one of our animal carers, which is an ideal temporary solution for her because she gets a nice warm comfy bed to snooze in, so she is in great hands for however long it takes for her forever human to come along.
The animal carer also provides Dot with homed cooked meals, helping her recover from a pesky bladder infection she recently developed. This extra care is a perfect example of how NAWT staff will go above and beyond to keep their animals in the best possible conditions.
As an older girl who has gone through such lousy luck with losing an owner and some illness of her own, Dot deserves a happy and peaceful retirement where she can enjoy the rest of her life. She is a beautiful collie who loves her simple pleasures; naps (lots of them), and a good warm cuddle. Be prepared for a booty shuffle though, she also likes reversing her bum up to you for a cheeky scratch!
Dot is not a huge fan of long walks, so would greatly appreciate a garden where she can have a little stroll, perhaps the odd walk here and there if she is feeling spritely.
Dot is seeking a quiet household, with someone who appreciates the simple life and a comforting companion. A pet-free, adult only home is a must, but she would be fine being home alone for up to 4 hours if needed.
If you’re looking for a friend to enjoy conversations, daytime TV and cuddles with then you don’t need to look any further... contact the Clacton team to meet this delightful dog and turn her life around.
