Dogs Trust

A home for Hector

Handsome Hector is looking for his Special Someone

Hector the Lurcher at Dogs Trust Darlington

Dogs Trust Darlington’s Hector is a handsome five-year-old lurcher, who is searching for his Special Someone.

Hector first came into the rehoming centre in September 2016 and has had a few homes since then that have unfortunately not worked out for him. He is an adorable chap who loves to be around people and has a very affectionate nature and really deserves to find a forever home. 

Hector’s favourite things in life (in no particular order) are:

  • Giving and receiving cuddles, everyone who meets Hector can’t help but fall in love with him as he is such an affectionate boy.
  • Eating treats, Hector certainly knows where the treats are kept and is an expert at sniffing them out. 
  • Playing with his toys, playtime is one of the highlights of his day and his goofy personality really shines out. He loves having a good game of fetch or a kick about with a football.  A large garden that he can play in would be top of his wish list for a new home.

Hector can live with teenagers aged 14 years and over and although he would be best as an only dog in his new home, he can have polite walking buddies. Hector is such a people-friendly dog that he will make a very funny and loving companion. 

Hector is currently in a foster home who are building up the amount of time he can happily be left on his own for. Although originally, he couldn’t be left for too long, he is now quite happy to spend up to four hours on his own.

Home from Home Coordinator Natalie said:

"Hector is such a loving boy who is always happy to meet visitors and always greets me with a wagging tail.  His foster carers say he is the perfect house guest and have given him a glowing report."
