    Due to my personal health issues, I will need a fost home for my poodle over one month from July to middle August.
    She is 7 month old, cream/apricot miniature poodle, not spayed yet, house trained, well behaved, who can perform lots of tricks already. She can be left alone for hours, but she craves attention. Please no full time workers.

    I have called many pet boarding services, but they can't take her in, because she's got ringworm. She has been treated over a month now and next tuesday she'll have her hair completely clipped to prevent the ringworm to come back. I desperately need a fost home (with no dogs) to look after her. She's completely spoiled by me and need to take out for walk everyday.

    I live in Leicester, so ideally the fost home could be near leicester. But I will travel to get her to the right place. I will provide everything (food, bed, etc). She's got insurance covered and been microchipped.

    I can afford to pay 200 for your help.

    many thanks

    Hi,

    Hope everything goes well for you.

    I would love to help you out but I have a dog and work full time plus off on holiday for a week during July with my parents hosue sitting my dog so they wouldn't be left alone during that week.

    If you hit a dead end and have no other offers drop me a PM and I will certainly look after your dog for you during your absense.

    Good luck.

    Hutch6.

    I would have LOVED to have her but unfortunately, I already have a dog. I hope you find her a good foster home.

    :)

    By the way, have you contacted her breeder? My dog's breeder said she'd be happy to have my dog back for a while if I go on holiday etc.

    aww shame i have a dog also, and also dont live far away, would of love to have looked after her for you. will you be at home during illness or going into hospital. Is it just a case of needing someone to walk her or actually take her in. will ask around for you.

    thanks for all your replies. :p
    I am actually going away for an operation, so a fost home to take her in really.

    It is a shame that many of you are willing to take her in, but you've got dogs already. My vet has advised me that it may not be a good idea for her to live with other dogs, as ringworm is contagious. Otherwise, she is great with other dogs and cats.

    hi does she still have ringworm, or being treated. I have been having a read up on it. And most sites seem to say once it is treated and cleared it is not contagious, and also older healthy dogs can be immune to it, It is puppys and young dogs who could be affected. Not sure if this helps give people more idea as if that is the only reason she cant be with dogs, people may be able to help.

    thank you. :)
    That is true. But kennels in general wouldn't risk it and I would feel so sorry if the host family's dog catch it.... (though just slight chance)
    She's been completely clipped today to clean up the fugus which may stay in her hair. She's almost recovered, and it wasn't bad at start anyway. But she dose look very strange without hair.... like a skinny chinese crest dog. :001_tt2:

    Have you contacted the Cinnamon Trust? I know they are specifically for elderly dog owners but they might be able to help you in some way? I'd love to offer but have a dog with a damaged immune system so have to be careful which fosters I take. (Mind you give me a poodle and you might have a fight to get her back!!:D)
