We are looking for a housesitter or couple to look after our beloved maltese terrier cross and to care for our home and garden for 13 days in late November, while we travel on a work trip to Thailand. Louie is a gorgeous maltese cross, who loves everyone. He is 12 and a half years old but is fit and healthy, enjoying a walk every day or two. He loves to sit next to you on the lounge and gives great cuddles. He sleeps in his comfy bed in the laundry each night and has a doggy door to get outside when he needs to. He is a small, happy and friendly dog who is easy to care for, and can be left at home alone for most of the day if you are off exploring the area around Wodonga.
Our home is 5 years old and quite large with all the mod cons. We would like you to keep it clean and tidy. Our garden is small but may need watering. We are in a quiet neighbourhood but still only a few minutes drive from the centre of town and look out onto natural bushland from our living areas and alfresco. We are located in the rural Victorian city of Wodonga which is on the Murray River and the border of NSW. The city of Albury is on the NSW side of the river. The Hume Dam is on our doorstep.We are just over an hour's drive to the beautiful Alpine towns of Bright and Mt. Beauty. The historic townships of Beechworth, Yackandandah and Chiltern are nearby, as is the famous Rutherglen wine region. Public transport is quite poor here, so your own car would be advisable.
