Our last post, quite a while ago now was about old pair, Zack and Miko.
Miko came to our care after being found abandoned, cold and hungry with her life long partner Zack. Since coming into our care, Zack & Miko have been inseparable, never leaving one another’s sides. They ate together, snoozed together and watched the world go by together.
Sadly, as his health deteriorated, Miko had to say her final farewell to Zack. It was a terribly upsetting time for all the Dogs Trust staff but even more so, for his life long love Miko. Poor Miko wouldn’t eat and remained mourning, curled up in Zacks bed.
It took all her carers attempts and efforts to help cheer her up. After a while, she began to eat again and we’re now desperately seeking her forever home where she can be assured that no harm will come to her again.
Miko needs a home with another dog, someone sweet and gentle who won’t be too pushy or playful with her. Miko finds the outside world very frightening and needs a home with a large secure and quiet garden where she can simply potter on her own accord with her doggy companion.
Miko simply needs a warm, secure and safe environment to retire in. She doesn’t demand any walks, training or even too much fuss from her new family, just somewhere to be in peace and be loved for who she is and for everything she has been through.
If you think you can offer Miko a retirement home, please please get in touch with the centre. You can call us on 01 879 1000 or even better, pop in to see us at the Rehoming Centre.
