Milo and Phoebe

This adorable duo have sadly found themselves looking for a new home due to their owner's long work hours which resulted in them being left alone for long periods throughout the day.
Milo and Phoebe are not related but have been together all of their life so we are looking for a home where they can stay together.

Milo and Phoebe have been through a lot since coming to us, they moved into a foster home on the 2nd May before being adopted on 3rd July but sadly found themselves back with us just 3 days later as they started squabbling and their new owners felt they could not cope having previously never owned a pair of dogs before.
Milo and Phoebe had never fought in their previous home or in their foster home so we feel this is a result of them feeling stressed, they were not given enough time to adjust to their new environment and this is a situation which could be easily overcome with time and patience.

Milo and Phoebe are both very friendly and affectionate dogs, Milo is the more clingy of the two and loves attention, whereas Phoebe is a bit more reserved and nervous initially.
They get along well with other dogs and could live with dogs in their new home, preferably dogs of a similar size and age.
They have also been around cats in their previous family without any concerns, however as they have never actually lived with cats before we would only consider local homes where we could do slow introductions.
Milo and Phoebe have grown up with a child who was only 3 years old when they arrived. They are also used to visiting children of various ages, however due to their age we feel they would be best suited to a quieter home where any children are over the age of 10.

Milo and Phoebe are generally in good health and have recently had dental treatment with Milo having 9 teeth extracted and Phoebe having 13 extracted! Phoebe also had an umbilical hernia which was repaired at the same time, which has healed well without any issues. She does have some arthritis in her knees which at this stage will just need to be managed with supplements.
Milo does have the start of cataracts in both eyes and although they are not causing him an issue at the moment this is something that may progress as he ages. He also has a history of fits and was reported to have had around 2 fits a year, however his last fit was in September and our vet is not concerned by this at this stage. Milo's blood results have indicated a problem with his pancreas, however this does not require medication and is easily managed with a good quality senior diet.

Ideally we are looking for a home where they will not be left alone for more than a couple of hours as they do really enjoy company.
Overall Milo and Phoebe are a delightful pair who will make wonderful companions.
