• Dog of the Month

Duchess and Ellie are a gorgeous, loving and very well behaved mother and daughter, who we would like to home together as they are pretty much inseparable. Duchess is a Dachshund and her daughter Ellie is a Dachshund cross breed – probably with a terrier. We think Duchess is about 4-5 years old, while Ellie is still quite the puppy at about 1. They are both living in foster care and their foster carer has completely fallen in love with them and would give them a forever home if she was staying in Thailand long term. They are calm, cuddly and playful and want nothing more than to give you lots of kisses – especially Duchess who is queen kisser! Duchess is a wonderful mother and loves to cuddle up for a belly scratch watching Ellie playing happily with her ball in the garden. They love to go out for little walks in the neighbourhood and have a good sniff – plus they always cause a stir as they do make a very eye-catching pair!. The are fully house trained and very clean, they are no trouble at night and snuggle up on their beds and don’t make a sound until morning. They would make ideal companions for anyone, they are fine to go and live with other dogs and Ellie is happy to play while her mum watches and gets ready for her next cuddle!
