LURCHER SOS DOGS NEEDING HOMES NOW

As always, the pounds are full and we have a queue of dogs waiting to come into safety with us.  But, as we are a foster based rescue with no kennel spaces, before we can bring these dogs into our care, we urgently need foster homes for them.  There have been many, many dogs being surrendered to pounds here and in Ireland.   We are having to turn away urgent appeals for help as we do not have enough foster homes.  Please, if you live in Southern England and would like to undertake this very worthwhile and rewarding role, get in contact by filling in and emailing back our Fostering Application and help us to help these dogs who are desperately in need.

DEAN

Young Lurcher Boy

In Foster in Surrey

 

Dean was returned to Lurcher SOS after an unsuccessful rehoming (it happens!) We don't know what happened to him during that time, but suffice it to say, it has become very obvious that it was through no fault of his own doing!
 
Dean is approximately 18 months old. He's a very bouncy, very loving big baby who is desperate to please.
 
Dean needs a home that will provide him with a routine. He is completely house trained, excellent with other dogs (but not tiny dogs) and with people. This dog doesn't have a nasty bone in his body, but is bouncy, so sensible children over the age of 10. He isn't food or toy possessive. He has been left for up to 2 hours in his current foster home, without any problems, and has shown no sign of destructive behaviour.

Dean is microchipped, neutered and fully vaccinated.

A fabulous dog who will make a great family member, with other dogs or on his own.

DILLYS

Young Lurcher Girl

In Foster in Essex

 

Dillys has now arrived in her foster home.  This is what her foster Mom has to say about her first day..

Dillys is here!!!  She has been with us for 4 hours and no problems at all. she met the pack and was accepted straight away. She is very relaxed and found the sofa and the bed within 30 minutes. She does not seem sad at all. Dillys is happy and her tail is wagging all the time.

I think she will be a bouncy, playful girl in a few days. Hasn't barked yet, has had a look on the worktops in the kitchen (she might be a surfer) and she even sat my lap for a few minutes.

I would say, she is not much older then 2 years, young anyway. Quite small and petite and very pretty and girly looking.

 

CHLOE - Cat Friendly

Little 5 Month Old Puppy

In Foster in Essex

Chloe is such a good girl, she settles at night without a murmur and greets you with enthusiasm the following morning.  She sits and waits for her breakfast patiently and eats nicely.

Chloe likes a fuss and a cuddle but is not a dog that is constantly in your face.  She walks nicely on the lead and is 100% clean.  She is an absolute joy.  She likes playing with toys but is not possessive about them.  She will occasionally counter surf but responds to 'NO'. She is good with dogs of all sizes and likes to listen to the children playing in the school at the back of us.  She loves plants.  All in all a lovely, friendly, happy and contented girl

 PEACHES

Lovely Fun Loving Lurcher Girl

In Foster in Essex

 

 

Peaches is a 2 year old female Lurcher who was adopted from us several months ago and returned recently when her owners felt they were unable to continue with her training programme. Having been attacked twice by off lead dogs Peaches is fear reactive on walks and needs continued positive reward/distraction based training to boost her confidence when out of the home. Peaches needs experienced owners who are committed to continuing her training and will enrol her in and attend classes to help her overcome her only issue.

Peaches is housetrained, crate trained, non-destructive and well behaved in the house. She does enjoy watching TV and voicing her opinion on occasion so if the back of a golden head and a pair of silly ears blocking your view at times will be a problem she is not the dog for you. Peaches can be left for up to 4 hours. She eats calmly, will sit and give her paw for a treat and does not guard her toys. Peaches is in foster with several other dogs of various ages and breeds. She gets along well with all of them, from being the favourite playmate of 9 week old puppies to having the utmost gentleness and respect for an arthritic 11 year old. Peaches is cat friendly, she is in foster with 5 house cats. She adores all people of all ages but is probably best with slightly older children as she, despite being 25 inches at the shoulder, considers herself a lap dog.

Peaches thrives on positive interaction, cuddles and affection but she is not pushy.
Peaches would be happy in a home as an only dog or with doggy siblings, though she would need to be walked alone, at least at first, so her training can be continued. Peaches currently has one 30 - 45 min walk a day during which she is on lead and muzzled for her own safety. What she would love much more than walks is a large garden to run around in, an owner who will throw her toys to fetch and perhaps a paddling pool to splash in.
Peaches is a funny, loving, daft, sweet dog who deserves a forever home with people who are committed to her.

Peter is about 5 years old and 25 inches to the shoulder.  He is good on a lead and is clean in the house.  He is being neutered later this week and will be ready to go to a forever home.  He is currently living with sighthounds and a Doberman and a German Shepherd and is fine with all of them.  We think he is a saluki cross lurcher.  Peter is not cat friendly.  He could be an only dog or live with other dogs.  He is vaccinated and microchiped, wormed and deflead.

DARA

Handsome and Calm Lurcher Lad

In Foster in Surrey

 

 

Dear Dara has had a hard life and the scars covering his sweet body are testament to that awful life.  He is safe now in rescue with us and a sweeter gentler boy you could not wish to meet. From day 1 he has mixed and mingled with all the pack in his foster home, both the males and the females.  Dara is clean in the house and is very quiet and peaceful and calm.  He is left uncrated at night in the sitting room with another hound for company and there is not a peep out of him till he is let out in the morning.  He eats nicely and does not counter surf.  He walks beautifully on the lead. He is about 7 years old and would be an amazing friend and companion.  

Dara does have a high prey drive and is one of the few dogs we would be happy to home to a flat dweller without a garden, as Dara is very tempted by any cats or furries in neighboring gardens!  That aside, he has no other faults or imperfections.  Please don't overlook this boy because of his scars.  Let him know love and care and a forever sofa... hopefully yours..... soon.
