Willow and Tiger came into from us from the police after their owner was found deceased and the family were unable to keep them. 
Willow and Tiger are a bonded pair and are currently in our Worcester kennels. 
Willow is the younger dog of the two. She is a lovely, friendly girl who loves being told she is a good girl when she is out for walks. She loves to play with a ball and is happy to release it when you want to take it off her. 
Tiger will be 16 years old in September, he is a lovely old boy who still enjoys his walks. He is very much bonded with Willow. We think he may have the onset of dementia as he sometimes seems a little lost and needs Willow for guidance. However, when in the temporary foster home he settled very quickly into his routine and was no trouble at all. 
Both dogs walk nicely on the lead together, they do not pull and are very polite. Both are fit for their age, and are happy trotting alongside you. 
Neither Willow nor Tiger have shown any interest in other dogs that they have seen whilst out on their daily walks, although they have not been dog tested. 
Tiger doesn’t have any trouble keeping up with Willow, but he is happy doing his own thing and having lots of sniffs. 
They have been walked on long training leads and Willow appears to have excellent recall. However, we think Tiger may be going a little deaf and relies on Willow. 
Willow and Tiger have travelled well in the back of our van, they settled well and we didn’t hear a peep out of them. 
Willow and Tiger have both been to visit the vets and they were very well behaved. Neither minded being handled by the vet during their health check and blood samples. 
Health issues: 
Both dogs have been health checked by the vets and had bloods taken. 
Willow’s Alkaline Phoshate Levels (APL) were high, so the vets suggested a scan. This was completed and nothing was found. She was tested for Cushing's Disease and this also came back negative. The vets are happy she is completely healthy. 
Tiger's blood tests showed slightly raised urea levels, but the vets are not concerned with this. When he arrived, he had a lump on his chin and upon examination it was identified as a cyst. This has since been removed and he also had 4 teeth removed. He is now all healed and signed off by the vets, they were really impressed with his health and fitness for an old boy. 
Ideal home: 
• They are very much a bonded pair, so the main priority is to find them a home together. Although they haven’t shown reaction to other dogs when out on their walks, we feel they would be happier as the only pets in the home. 
• Neither are bouncy boisterous dogs, so we feel they would be fine with children aged 10 years plus. 
• They have been in temporary foster while Tiger recovered from his anaesthetic and his foster mum said Willow very much enjoys human company, she loves to be near you all the time. So someone who is home a lot would be perfect for this pair. 
• Both dogs were very content in their temporary foster home - perfect house guests and a garden is important as Tiger loves investigating in it! 
Standard information: 
Both dogs are microchipped, vaccinated and neutered. 
They are currently in kennels in Worcester, but can be rehomed anywhere in the UK pending a successful home visit. However, any adopter should be willing to travel to meet them at least twice where they are now. 
There is an adoption donation of £200 for Willow and Tiger, all money donated goes directly to helping all the Senior Staffies in our care.
