Sadly Happy has come back into our care through no fault on her own

Happy - Yorkie X (Norfolk) Happyoc

Happy is a 14 year old Yorkie Cross who was rescued from appalling conditions in Ireland, almost a year ago. In January, Happy found a home, but her owners are now moving to France and so little Happy needs to find herself another home. Happy is with her current owners in Aldborough, Norfolk, and will be rehomed directly from there, but this isn’t a private rehoming – Happy is being rehomed by the Oldies Club dog rescue.

Settles quickly: Luckily, Happy seems to settle in new environments quickly – it took less than a week for her to settle in her current home. She is fine to be left alone for a few hours too.

Great with dogs, cats and children: Happy is such a lovely little girl that she is fine with everything. However, because of her age and size, it would be best if any children are over 10 years old, with a caring attitude to animals.

Loves short walks on her extension lead: Happy is used to short walks around the village green. For longer walks she has a doggy back-pack which she can take with her to her new home! She is good on the lead. Once she knows you, she runs ahead on walks and doesn’t seem used to being recalled. She is therefore kept on an extension lead which, again, she will take with her to her new home. She will come when called in from the garden. In colder weather she wears a coat for walks and she will take her 2 coats to her new home.

Good in the car: Happy travels well, in a cage or harness so that she feels secure, and – you guessed it – she will take these to her new home. Alternatively, she would be happy for someone to sit near her on a journey; she would then just go to sleep most of the way. She doesn’t jump about or roam around in the car. She does have a tendency to not drink or want to take a wee when travelling, so you need to bear this in mind if going on a long journey.

Happy’s likes: Eating and sleeping! Her current owner tells us: Also loves a lot of fuss, but on her terms. She is a happy, friendly little dog, but is also independent and will just get up off your lap when she’s had enough fuss. She doesn’t play with toys, we think this is because she was never used to that in her time in Ireland, and therefore wouldn’t know what to do with anything like that. We have tried various things but she’s just not interested. She will let you know if she wants to be picked up for a few minutes, or anything else (like say a treat!) by coming and sitting in front of you and bouncing up and down on her front legs! Loves pottering around the garden. She loves her food – her current owners will give Happy’s adopters full details of the food that suits her best.

Happy’s dislikes: Sudden really loud bangs can sometimes startle her. Not all loud noises upset her, we have fighter jets fly low over the village regularly which make an awfully loud noise, and she takes not a bit of notice of that. Usually most noises she just looks up from where she is or comes and has a look what has made them.

Happy’s perfect home: An older couple or older person on their own would be ideal for Happy, as she does like to potter and sleep a lot. But a family with older children would be okay. It wouldn’t be fair for Happy to live with someone who was out at work all day – she deserves more time from her owner.

Health notes: Happy is neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, wormed and flea-treated. She had a number of teeth extracted when she was in Oldies Club care previously, due to the bad conditions she came from in Ireland, but has enough teeth to manage her food perfectly well. Her back legs have slipping patellas and this causes her to have a slightly unstable gait. She’s not currently on any medication though. She also has an inactive mammary tumour, but our vet advised that this is best left alone for now.

Summing up Happy: Happy, Independent, Loving, Funny. Happy doesn’t bark or whine. She doesn’t bite or chew at anything. If she has had enough of being say brushed and combed, she will give little growls, but this does not mean she will nip or bite, simply that she’s grumbling and wants you to stop. Having said this, she is very good at going to the dog groomer, who says she is no trouble at all! Whoever lets Happy into their lives will get a wonderful little friend. We have considered ourselves very fortunate to have had her in our lives, and our regret is very deep that we cannot take her with us to France. We would say that to be owned by Happy is a great privilege for anyone.

If you’d like to find out more about Happy, please refer to our Adoption Procedures for information about the adoption process. You can then contact an Oldies Club rehoming co-ordinator as follows:

Email: rehome@oldies.org.uk
Telephone: 0844 586 8656

Happy can be rehomed anywhere in the UK, subject to a satisfactory home visit, but note that you will be required to travel to the foster home to meet her.
