Type of pet
Mango is a 6-month-old Border Terrier/Cairn Terrier mix. She’s very confident and spunky and is a true terrier, a large dog in a small compact body. She loves people and dogs. She loves to run, fetch and swim. She loves a good tug of war or a game of chase with her toy. She goes to puppy daycare in Nelson and is very dog-friendly. She’s never been around cats or other non-dog animals so we’re not sure how she’d act. We would love to share her with another family or couple as we both work and suspect life could get busier as our child becomes school-aged. She is very good with our 5-year-old. If sharing with a family we would prefer it to be with older children who are good listeners.
She is not currently spayed or microchipped but will be by mid-April 🙂 We wouldn’t share her until her procedures are complete.
We are open to all types of arrangements:
- Maybe you are a student or flexible working individual(s) who would like to take her for walks on the mornings she is not in puppy care (Currently Tuesdays, Fridays, and weekends). Happy to instruct on how to train a dog to walk as she needs practice.
- Maybe you are a works-from-home or retired individual who just wants a chill puppy to sleep on or near you in the afternoon until we are done with work. You could pick her up from puppy daycare and take her to your home. She’s usually exhausted and just wants to rest.
- Maybe you want to try out what life is like with a spunky puppy over a weekend to see if you really want that sort of chaos and responsibility in your life? We would do multiple short-day trials to build the relationship before leaving her overnight.
- Maybe you’d like to house and puppy sit for a few weeks while we’re out of the country? See what life is like with a house and a dog. We live near great walking tracks and are within walking distance to CBD so I’m sure she’d be a great companion.
