Happy ever after for long-legged lad Scooter the Greyhound

Scooter, who featured in our recent Greyhound rehoming appeal, has found his paw-fect match

Scooter, who was the focus of our recent appeal promoting Greyhounds and Lurchers as pets, has found his fur-ever home.

We recently revealed that Greyhounds and Lurchers are more likely to spend a long time waiting for potential adopters. On average, these long-legged pooches stay with us for around two months while smaller breeds such as Shih Tzus spend less than half that time at our centres before going off to new homes! 

Lovely lad Scooter had been with Dogs Trust Snetterton Rehoming Centre in Norfolk for 119 days before finding a happy home with his paw-fect match. Friendly Scooter was one popular pooch as our Snetterton Rehoming Centre Assistant Manager, Emily Johnston says: 

“Scooter soon won the hearts of all the staff. He is a friendly boy who enjoys human company and playing with his toys, especially teddies. We loved watching Scooter stretching his long legs, joyfully zooming around the off-lead areas at playtime. We’re so happy that he’s found his fur-ever home.”

Scooter is now settled into life with his new people Christopher and Joann Wright, who live in Norfolk. The couple saw Scooter on the Dogs Trust website, and after researching the breed they knew a Greyhound would be a great fit for them. They say he loves attention and fuss and has been having lots of fun with his toys - he especially loves squeaking his teddies and using his snuffle mats!

Christopher and Joann Wright said:

“We have been patient with Scooter while he gets to know us and have let him lead the way when it came to being ready for walks and meeting other people.

“It has been very emotional welcoming him into family. He is so loving, and, in the short time he has been with us, it already feels like he has been with us forever.”

For lovely boy Scooter, the ‘Wrights’ are the right match.
