Chloe is a darling 12-year-old border collie who is used to being with people most of the time. She is well-behaved indoors and out, and she makes a good companion for hikes and day trips. She can also be left at home alone, as long as she gets two good walks a day. Extremely personable, she also makes a wonderful companion for hiking or trips to the beach.
Six chickens need once a day feeding and watering, along with collecting eggs, and you can eat as many of those as you'd like.
If you want to go away for an overnight or two, a neighbor can fill in for chicken duty, as long as you take Chloe with you.
We have a fully-renovated 1909 two-bedroom bungalow in Southeast Portland. It is nicely furnished with antiques and oriental carpets. We are looking for a responsible housesitter who will be attentive to the animals and respectful of our home. The house will be clean and orderly when you arrive, and we will expect it to be in the same shape when we return.
Two bicycles are available to use, if you don't mind riding in the drizzle.
This is an unpaid position. Utilities, including wifi, are included, and whatever staples you find in the kitchen cupboards.
