Happy Birthday Hector

Handsome Hector the Lurcher celebrates his 6th birthday at his foster home

Hector the Lurcher at Dogs Trust Darlington

This weekend Dogs Trust Darlington’s Hector will be celebrating his 6th birthday in the comfort of his temporary foster home. 

Hector's foster carers will make the day extra special for him and he will be enjoying some extra special tasty treats and lots of fun playtime.  Hector is still a young man and deserves to find his forever home where he can celebrate all his future birthdays, Christmases and holidays surrounded by his forever family.

Not only is he handsome Hector also has an amazing personality; he’s adorable, funny and affectionate.  He can brighten your day with his fun antics and sunny nature.


His favourite things in life (in no particular order) are:

  • Giving and receiving snuggles, 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 is such a "people friendly" dog that he will make a very funny and loving companion.  He can live with teenagers aged 14 years and over and would like someone who is around most of the time as he loves human companionship.

If you think you could be the one to make all of Hectors future birthdays extra special please contact the centre for more information before travelling on 01325 333114 or email our Home from Home Coordinator at [email protected] for more information.
