Can you help Mirza get out of the SPA?

Mirza is a Phoenix Pensioner, meaning that her adopter will benefit from a €500 contribution towards vet bills, paid by Phoenix. The cost of neutering Mirza will also be reimbursed by Phoenix. Bergerac SPA have agreed that there will be no adoption fee payable for her.

MIRZA is a lovely little pocket rocket who really deserves to find a loving home for her retirement. She does have quite specific requirements though, which is why finding her a suitable home is proving tricky.

Mirza was found wandering near to Sarlat and was taken in to Bergerac SPA, she is struggling being at the SPA, with all the commotion going on around her.

Despite her age, nearly 11, and her small size, about 10kg and 35cm to the shoulder, she really is very dynamic. Mirza always greets you with enthusiasm, is eager to go for walks, is inquisitive and curious, and also loves a cuddle.

So what are the drawbacks to her being adopted? She absolutely needs a secure garden as she does have Houdini tendencies, she will certainly keep you on your toes and you will need to have your wits about you until she settles in. With her Ratier breed, she definitely cannot live with cats or chickens etc. She doesn't seem to like other small dogs, but she has recently been tested with mild mannered older castrated male dogs, and that didn't seem to pose a problem.

Mirza has been in a single pen since her return to the SPA last October and she really does now need to find her new home. It would be good also for her to have a new family who can encourage her to respect certain boundaries, and she will reward you by being a loving companion. So if you feel you can offer her the kind of home she needs, please do get in touch.

Mirza has been chipped, vaccinated and treated for fleas, worms and ticks. She is at the SPA in 24100 Bergerac.
