A few words about our property:

We have a large garden that we're in the process of fencing.

Here is why I think we can provide a good home:

Our children have been asking for a dog for years - they love them:) We think giving an older dog a home to rest and enjoy life with us is something we'd all benefit from. I grew up with dogs and have missed everything they bring to a family.
