We are looking for someone to take care of our two dogs for 2 weeks in July.
Leroy is a 5 year old rescued English Shepherd. He is 50 pounds and is a bit wary of people at first. He needs someone who is willing to give him his space but still play frisbee in the backyard and go for a daily walk in the neighborhood. He takes daily medication for anxiety.
Cosmo is a 1 year old mini Australian Shepherd. He weighs in at 10 pounds and is full of energy. He barks a lot at first but is a real sweetheart once he gets used to you. He loves to play indoors and out and like to take daily walks.
The dogs are used to be home alone for several hours a day but are accustomed to being with family in the evenings and at times throughout the day.
Our house is a lovely split-level complete with air-conditioning for hot summer days. We have a large back deck with a hammock. It is just a quick walk (1 block) from southwest Portland's Multnomah Village where you can find several coffee shops, restaurants, wine bars, a book store, toy store, bead shop, and so much more. We are a 10 minute drive into downtown Portland and are close to several bus lines to downtown Portland. We are also just a few minutes walk from Gabriel Park-- home of lovely walking trails and tennis courts.
