Would you ‘Rowland’ play with this amazing three-legged rescue dog?

Rowland is a two-year-old Greyhound cross Collie who came into the care of Dogs Trust Darlington in February 2018, after being found straying. He is a beautiful boy, who is very loving and adores people, although he can be sensitive at times. 

This young man has not had the easiest start in life; not only was he left to fend for himself at the age of just six months old, he has also had to recover from surgery to his rear left leg. Sadly, this required a full limb amputation which he had at the start of 2020 and he is now making a great recovery. Rowland is getting used to life with three legs and is on light exercise at this moment in time. 

Rowland spends much of his time in the office as he likes human company and he is very well behaved. He is just happy to lie on his cosy bed with his toys and have a lazy day. Rowland loves his toys and the soft, squeaky ones are his favourite; he’s very gentle and takes really good care of them. 

In his new home Rowland would like:

  • Someone around for most of the day
  • To be the only pet in the home
  • A garden for playtime and gentle exercise
  • Lots of soft & squeaky toys

Rowland is ready for his happy-ever-after; could you be the one to give this handsome boy the amazing life he deserves? Rowland is just one of over 65 dogs currently looking for a home at the centre and in foster care.
