About me

I’m a gentle Greyhound and can be quite lazy, but I do have the odd burst of energy! The quickest way to my heart is through squeaky toys and food, I have so many favourites it’s so hard for me to choose! I can be a bit unsure of strangers and new dogs, but once I get to know you my cheeky side comes out. I’ve made so many new doggy pals at Dogs Trust Shrewsbury we always have fun on our big group walks, I get to show off and show them how fast I can be! There’s a reason my nickname is ‘Lightning’!

Why I need sponsoring

I was brought to Dogs Trust when my owner became too ill to look after me. I've had a couple of homes since then but I never properly settled - I'm much happier here!


  • Any treats
  • Squeaky toys
  • Having a fuss from my carers


  • Being cold
  • The rain

Dogs you can see

You’re welcome to come and visit me, please make sure you call the Centre first on 0303 003 0000 . I’m afraid you won’t be able to touch me because I’m a bit nervous around people I don’t know – I’ll still be so happy to see you though!
