Celebrating Lovely Lurchers and Gorgeous Greyhounds

This weekend Dogs Trust Leeds are celebrating all sighthound breeds, focussing specifically on Lurchers and Greyhounds.

We have seen an influx of the breeds arriving at the rehoming centre recently and wanted to show the public what amazing family pets they make.

A common misconception is that they will need lots of exercise. This couldn’t be further from the truth! In fact Lurchers and Greyhounds are real couch potatoes and prefer to have a short blast of exercise and then spend the rest of the day lounging on the sofa.

They are incredibly loving and very loyal. They seem to just adore attention and we’ve yet to meet one who doesn’t enjoy a good fuss and lots of cuddles.

If you visit the centre this weekend (Sat 9th-Sun 10th) you will find lots of information on the breed, along with a large display featuring past residents and real life stories from their owners.

As well as all this, you will be able to see a some of our boys and girls who are all looking for their forever homes.

Check out the video below to see why adding a Lurcher or Greyhound to your home could be the best thing ever!
