Dogs Trust West London rehome 500th dog this year
Dogs Trust West London is celebrating its 500th adoption since the New Year began.
Taking the accolade is five-year-old Barnaby the Greyhound. Bouncy Barnaby came into the centre in March this year, and after seven months in kennels has found his special someone; Pamela Hogg from High Wycombe, who brought along her daughter Claire Wilson when collecting him.
Dogs Trust West London’s Rehoming Centre Manager Richard Moore said:
“Barnaby came to us as an ex-racer and this lovely lad has now found a forever home to call his own. We’re delighted that Pamela saw just how rewarding adopting an ex-racer can be. Greyhounds have the most wonderful temperaments and really thrive when in the right home.
“Often the public perception of the breed is completely inaccurate. The truth is they are docile, often couch potatoes! They don’t slobber or moult and they eat the same amount of food as any other dog of similar size.
“I really hope those looking for a canine addition will consider opening their hearts and homes to one of the Greyhounds in our care.”
Greyhounds at the centre still looking for their happy ever after include gorgeous Gary, darling Danny, playful Paisley and excellent Ellie.
