About me

Hi everyone!! My name is Vera and this is my best friend Jack. We’re a cheeky, fun and affectionate duo on the lookout for a perfect home together. 

Before finding ourselves at NAWT, we were living outside in the cold so we’re glad some kind people stepped in and took us to safety. But that’s all in the past and we’re only interested in our future! 

We may be 10 years old but by no means do we act our age; in fact, we’ve almost convinced people we’re half that age! Age is just a number after all and you’re only as old as you feel...and we certainly feel healthy and great! We like running around the fields here and having a sniff at all the good smells. 

We are very friendly dogs and have liked everyone we’ve met. I’m the braver one at first as Jack is a bit of a scaredy cat. It doesn’t take him long at all before he’s trying to snuggle in for a cuddle but I always beat him to it!! Really we need at least two people in our home so we have a cuddle buddy each! 

We could live with sensible older teenage children but we will need to be the only pets in your life. We’re also not really used to being left in a home on our own so someone who is home most of the time would be ideal. If you’ve got space in your heart and home for two super dogs, then please don’t keep us waiting!!!
