Loving Lurcher Lacey keeps paws crossed for her lucky break
Everybody at Dogs Trust Evesham simply adores Lacey the Lurcher! She is an extremely intelligent girl who has the sweetest, most loving nature anybody could ask for in a canine companion.
Lacey is very friendly and enjoys meeting new people; after all, more friends means more fun and food in Lacey’s books! Having gained such a fan club here at the Centre, Lacey is hoping to find a forever family who can love her for the rest of her life. Lacey has now spent over 250 days in our care, and is hopeful that she could be snuggled-up in a cosy home very soon. Despite her previous bad luck, Lacey has her paws crossed for the fairy tale ending that she deserves.
Lacey originally arrived in the care of Dogs Trust as a youngster following an unknown history as a stray. She landed herself in a new home a couple of times whilst in the care of another Centre, but unfortunately found herself back in kennels for reasons that were simply no fault of her own. Flashforward to 2021 and Lacey has recently celebrated her 6th birthday with her most important birthday wish being to finally meet her lifelong special someone.
Bright as a button, Lacey loves learning new skills. Promise her a tasty reward and she will quite happily show-off her impressive list of tricks including ‘sit’, ‘paw’ and ‘down’ to name just a few. Lacey has also been working really hard on her dog desensitisation programme and has become quite a fan of travelling in the car for new adventures. Food puzzles are never turned-down by this foodie; She loves being given her meals via Kongs, snuffle mats and treasure hunts around the paddock.
Lacey’s biggest challenge is seeing and hearing other canine companions. For this reason, we are seeking a home for her without neighbouring dogs, in a low-dog-populated area where she can enjoy her walks without the fear of meeting other pooches. The team here have been guiding Lacey through her training programme by building her confidence and rewarding her for choosing not to shout at dogs out and about. She is trying her absolute best and has made tremendous progress, but will be asking her family to continue this training in the home.
Although Lacey really loves human company, she can be left on her own for a few hours at a time if given a comfortable bed and a brain game or two to keep her occupied. She will be asking for a moderately active lifestyle with plenty of exciting adventures on offer, and would like to request some patience whilst she masters her housetraining in the home. Some level of lurcher experience would be useful for the family fortunate enough to adopt Lacey, however our team will be on-hand to guide anyone who could offer this gorgeous girl her forever home.
If our lovely lurcher Lacey could be your perfect match, please visit her profile on the rehoming gallery and get in touch with the Contact Centre on 0303 003 0000 to discuss rehoming further.
