Once, twice, three times a Greyhound: Dogs Trust Canterbury celebrate a treble success
Dogs Trust Canterbury Rehoming Centre is celebrating the recent success of rehoming three Greyhounds previously used in the track-racing industry, in very quick succession this month. The trio; Lucas, Dion and Arrow have hit the jackpot and have joined their new homes this January.
Lucas, aged four has a new home with Luke and Michelle who said:
‘‘We had been wanting to find a rescue greyhound to give a home to due to their gentle temperament and we absolutely fell in love with Lucas when we first visited. It really was love at first sight! We’re so excited to give him a new home, along with squeaky toys and duvets to sprawl on. We’re really happy Greyhounds here have found loving homes.’’
Dion, aged two and Arrow aged three, have also landed on their paws and head home over the weekend to join their new families.
As these lucky three em‘bark’ on a brand new adventure with their new owners, sadly, another ex-racer Vinnie is still waiting for his second chance.
Dogs Trust Canterbury Rehoming Centre Manager Harriet Blaskett said:
“We are so delighted that Lucas, Dion and Arrow have found their perfect forever homes. Greyhounds that have previously been used for racing can often be nervous and it takes them time to learn to trust you, meaning they can be overlooked. We’re hoping this won’t be the case for Vinnie though as he is a lovely boy and if he were able to find a new home, we would be even happier than we are now! It’d really make it an incredible few weeks for this breed at the centre. Everyone, two and four-legged is keeping their fingers, and paws, crossed for Vinnie!”
Vinnie the two year old Greyhound loves his toys, likes his walks and enjoys his treats. He will need an adult-only home and patient owners that will take the time to get to know him, and do not have any dogs already.
If you feel you are a suitable fit to rehome a Greyhound surrendered to us with a background of racing, and would like to know more about Vinnie please contact the Canterbury rehoming centre.
