Meet Daphne

Hi I'm Daphne. You could consider me a pensioner. My approximate age is 15 as assessed by the Pound who described me as a sweet girl. My foster carer totally agrees. I have difficulty seeing and hearing, however I'm getting by, discovering all the nooks and crannies of my foster house and back yard. I get on with the resident and visiting dogs and just potter around all day. I do have a bit of stiffness in the hips however, I walk well on the lead and sleep soundly throughout the night. I eat real food and I have many of my own teeth. I would prefer a level house and garden as I cannot see the steps properly, however once I get used to one or two I may be okay. I am visiting my handsome Vet this Wednesday who will give me an update on my current health. My foster father, also a pensioner and mother are falling in love with me however, I would love to share my personality with someone who will understand my issues so that my foster parents can rescue another furbaby in need. Some incontinence issues which are reducing daily. Can be treated with medication if necessary.
