Lotsa leggy lovelies looking for love

Influx of Greyhounds and Lurchers at Dogs Trust Evesham

Dogs Trust Evesham is appealing to dog lovers to consider adopting a Greyhound or Lurcher after seeing an influx in these loveable breeds looking for homes.

There are currently eight Greyhounds and four Lurchers at the rehoming centre all looking for forever homes and staff are keen to dispel the myths surrounding the breed in order to find them all loving new families.

Contrary to what people tend to think, Greyhounds and Lurchers, known as Sighthounds, are often couch potatoes and don’t need as much exercise as everyone expects, instead after an energetic burst they like nothing more than cosying up on a big bed in a warm home. The thirteen homeless hounds are all looking for a relaxed pace of life where they can put their paws up on a comfy sofa.

Chris Slight, Dogs Trust Evesham’s Rehoming Centre Manager, said:

“Sadly many Greyhounds and Lurchers end up in rescue centres like ours waiting for a loving home to spend the rest of their lives in. People often assume they are dogs that need lots of exercise but that’s not the case. They are definitely strong and fast but they are surprisingly lazy and very loyal, which is why they make great pets.”

Visitors to the centre in Wickhamford will be able to find out everything they need to know about Greyhounds and Lurchers and of course meet the dogs looking for their forever family.

The leggy lovelies looking for homes are: Arthur, Cecil, Conker, Fred, Harmony, Nate, Patsy, Ranger, Reilly, Rolo, Snowy and Wilbur.

Chris continues: “All of our Sighthounds are different in their personalities, but share in common the desire to find a loving home. We hope people will be encouraged to find out more about Greyhounds and Lurchers and, fingers crossed, adopt one!”

If you could set your sights on a Sighthound and offer one a comfy couch, please call 0300 303 0292.
