Latte - no more applications

Latte is definitely a little lady who will be like your morning coffee – she is strong, perky, fluffy, a little sweet and can get you up and going for the day. For a senior, she has the disposition of a perky princess and certainly one who loves her walks around the block, down to the shops and of course to have a coffee stop at a café.
What you need to consider before falling in love with Latte is that she has had a very very harsh past and it has left its mark on her. Latte is a cuddler but ONLY when she wants to cuddle. She does not like to be touched unless she approaches you to play and cuddle. Her head is very sensitive, scratching of the ears and head are fine, BUT only when she asks you. You can not do fast movements around her head, pick her up in a certain way or put your hands in her face suddenly. WHY – because she will snap at you. However, if you remember these simple rules, Latte will warm to you and we are confident that she will enhance your life, your home and your heart.
Latte is looking for a male owner as she prefers their company. A retired gent who perhaps walks daily and would like a little lady to accompany him. A gentleman who will be happy to play ball with her and happily let her cuddle next to him or on his lap as he relaxes watching his favourite shows.
Is your dad or grandpa lonely?? Latte could be the answer to some easy going companionship.
Latte is in great health for her age, her teeth are excellent and her dietary requirements are quite simple. Latte is housetrained and does not need much space so a small unit or villa with good fencing is perfect. She sleeps through the night and loves a day nap after her exercise. Latte is not able to cope with little fingers poking here and there so frequent young children as visitors are not recommended.
Due to the specific requirements of Latte’s future owner, you will need to discuss your ability to care for her with her foster carer and there will be an extended trial period. Please do not apply if you are not prepared to listen and follow the instructions regarding her specific requirements.
