Needs and Animals

  • My pets
  • Animals with specific needs
  • A dog
Mabel is an absolute gem, lovely personality, and not a day goes by when she doesn't make us laugh. Mabel is very friendly, gentle, great with children and other dogs. However (the plot thickens!) our lovely girl had an accident last time we were away and had to have some shoulder surgery. She is not allowed to go for walks other than a quick one to do her business (3-4 times throughout the day on the lead) and she needs to stay on one level of the house. We are investing in some baby gates to help with this as only 2 weeks after her accident she is trying to run up the stairs and she is much quicker than us! Given this she cannot be left long periods of time (3 hours max). She also has a vets appointment but we have already arranged for someone who knows her accident history to pick up up for this. We appreciate this is a unique situation and we are very hesitant about leaving our Mabel, so it would need to be the right fit. She is super lovely and firendly and mostly she curls up and sleeps! Her only fault is that she is a bit of a thief - we just make sure all food is out of reach and there is no problem. Happy to answer more questions about her specific needs.

Gex's exceptional environment (it is one of the gateways to the Haut-Jura Regional Natural Park and the National Nature Reserve of the Haute Chaîne du Jura), its views of the Alps, the immediate proximity of the Monts Jura resort, in particular, make it an essential stopover for lovers of green tourism and hiking.
