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.  Do scroll down as we have many new dogs arriving with us soon.

Lisette

Pretty Small Lurcher

 

Pretty little Lisette has only just arrived and it is clear to see this is a treasure of a dog.  She is clean, does sit and doesn't chew or destroy.  She is very affectionate and gets on well with the dogs in her foster home.  I can't find a single thing wrong with this wonderful girl.  She would make a brilliant first sighthound.  She came to a street collection today and mastered the stairs in a multi storey car park with ease. She had a waggy tail for everyone and a lick for all the children who stroked her.  This girl will be a wonderful companion for some lucky people.  Lisette would be happiest with another dog for company, but if she had her humans around for most of the day she could be an only dog.

 Rosie

CAT FRIENDLY

Beautiful Saluki Cross Girl

In Foster in Surrey

 

Beautiful calm girl.  About 3 years old.  Vaccinated and Neutered.  Living with a Cat and fine with him.  Low prey drive.  Totally clean in the house.  A gentle lovely soul.  Rosie is fine to be left if she has another dog for company so we would like her to go to a home with a resident dog.  Her foster Mom says.....

Rosie is an absolutely wonderful girl, beautiful inside and out. She is clean in the house, travels well and has no interest in our resident cat.
She's extremely gentle taking treats from the hand and likes to take her time over meals, savouring each mouthful!
Rosie can get anxious meeting new people if they don't allow her to come and say hello in her own time and takes a little while to relax and show her real sunny personality - she has the most beautiful grin when greeting people she knows! Young children are another anxiety for her but she would be fine with gentle older teens. She really likes the company of other dogs but bonds especially with her "human" and has the potential to be someone's real heart dog.

Rosie 2

Lurcher x Collie Girl

In Foster in Surrey

 

 

Meet beautiful young Rosie who has just arrived with us today.  She is a medium sized girl at 24 inches to the shoulder. And no more than 16 months old.  She is happy and playful and gets along great with the other dogs in her foster home. Rosie loves playing with a ball and will fetch it to you as well.  She is a bright girl and knows sit and paw and leave it.  We think that Rosie will have recall too.  She is neutered, microchipped and vaccinated and we are now taking applications for this gorgeous girl.

Jasmine

Little Saluki Lurcher

CAT FRIENDLY

In foster in Essex. 

 

Jasmine is a young gentle, quiet girl. She needs a calm home with people who will give her time to trust them and bond with them. Jasmine needs to go to a home with another dog to give her confidence.  She would be happiest in a home where someone was around for most of the day. Jasmine is living with cats and is fine with them.   Resident children may be a bit much for Jasmine but she is child friendly and would be fine with gentle visiting children.  She is vaccinated and neutered and ready to be adopted.

 Iona

Striking Lurcher Girl

In Foster in Surrey


Iona is a 3 1/2 year old female Lurcher. Iona was adopted from us last year but was sadly recently returned because the other dog in the home did not get on with her. For this reason, although Iona is happily in foster with other dogs, we feel she needs to be homed as an only dog. Iona is a loving, affectionate girl who bonds closely to her people and would make an ideal companion. She is housetrained and can be left for short periods but would prefer to have someone home with her most of the time for company. Iona walks well on her lead and needs to be kept on lead for walks. Iona loves both to play and to snooze her day away on the sofa.
Iona was very unsettled and distressed by the move back to foster care and is missing her adopter. She deserves a forever home where she will be loved for life, she will return the love given to her a hundred fold.

  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 5 years old and would be an amazing friend and companion.  He would be happiest with another dog for company.

Dara cannot be homed with small furries but he has no other faults or imperfections.  We did have to try a number of different foods as Dara has a delicate stomach, but he is now fed on a raw diet and his tummy troubles are now sorted.   Please don't overlook this boy because of his scars.  Let him know love and care and a forever sofa... hopefully yours..... soon.

***********************************************

Bunny

Lovely Tan Lurcher Girl

Bunny has arrived. And what a happy girl she is.  Dog friendly, people friendly and clean in the house.  Bunny really hasn't put a paw wrong since she arrived.  She will be available for adoption as soon as she is spayed - hopefully in the next week!

Arriving May 29

Bonnie

Pretty Young Greyhound

In Foster in Surrey

 

Some callus person surrendered Bonnie to a pound knowing she was destined to be euthanized after 1 day.  Thankfully our good friends at Dundalk Dog Rescue were able to save her as we had given them a promise to take her. She is about 2 years old.  More about her once she arrives with us.

**************************************

Eamon

Gorgous Saluki X Boy

In Foster in Buckinghamshire

 

This boy is breathtakingly handsome and was an owner surrender in Ireland.  He is a Saluki cross.  He is now in our care and what a gentle shy boy he is. Eamon is 27 inches to the shoulder.   He is neutered and fully vaccinated and ready to go into a forever home.  He is a shy boy but relaxes once he knows you and we can see a playful side to him too. He is quiet and can be left and is clean in the house.

**********************************

Enya

Pretty Whippet Cross Girl

In Foster in Surrey

 

 

This sweet girl was handed over along with Eamon above.  She is not big, about 24 inches to the shoulder and as you can see, very pretty.  Enya had a bad life in Ireland and she is a little shy of people she doesnt know. She is neutered and fully vaccinated and is ready for a forever home of her own.

 **************************************

Amelia

Gentle Affectionate Lurcher Girl

In Foster in Surrey

 

This pretty little girl is about 2 years old and already has had 4 litters of puppies!  Last year we were able to bring 6 of her puppies to safety here in England.  Now the farmer who owned Amelia gave her to Rescue and she is with us in England now.  Sadly Amelia is blind in one eye, but she still enjoys life to the full.   And she is adorable. Clean, quiet, sociable girl who just ADORES people.  Amelia would follow "her" person to the ends of the earth.  She is neutered and fully vaccinated and ready for a forever home.

*****************************

Abby

Daughter of Amelia seen above

 

This girl is from a litter born to Amelia above and is half sister to the Cyprus 6 - who we saved last year.  She is currently in Cyprus getting ready to come to us in the UK.  Hopefully the pretty girl will be with us in a couple months.

*********************

Fliss

Stunning Rough Coat Girl

In Foster in Cardiff

 

 Fliss (Felicity) is a happy-go-lucky rough-coated lurcher, aged about 3 years.  She measures 23 inches to the shoulder and has been a working dog all her life.  So we have to assume she is not cat-friendly.

 Fliss is in foster and is almost 100% clean in the house.  She is in season at the moment  - so no opportunity to test her recall.  She gets on well with other dogs, is good on the lead and takes treats gently.  She is an ingenious food  thief.

She is a calm, jolly girl  who likes the company of other dogs  She is affectionate and will make some lucky person very happy.  We feel Fliss would need a home with another dog.

***********************************

Ember

Older Lurcher Lady

 In Foster in Hertfordshire

 

This beautiful 7 year old girl has just arrived, and as you can see, has already settled beautifully. She is a quiet girl who has a very waggy tail.  She is clean in the home and she doesnt chew or destroy.  She is good with dogs and people.  She is very affectionate and gentle and will be ready for a home in 2 weeks.

 *************************************************

Lola

Gorgeous Rough Coat Girl

In Foster in Surrey

 

A happy smiley girl, Lola is about 4 years old and came from a pound to us.  She is friendly and gets on well with the dogs in her foster home. She is totally clean in the home and affectionate.  She will be up for homing in 2 weeks.

****************************

Willow

Fawn Lurcher Girl

In Foster in Hampshire

 

Willow came into us at the same time as Ember and Lola. She is about 4 years old and her foster mom says....

What can I say this girl is an absolute delight she loves people and dogs alike gives kisses and cuddles in abundance.
 She is very respectful and if she gets a bit to enthusiastic and resident dogs tell her off she submits immediately.
 No food issues, waits in line at feed time with 5 other dogs, doesn't attempt to push in.

 She has put her paws up on the counter tops but I think it is more curiosity than surfing for
 food as she isn't really food obsessed, and hasn't done it since the first couple of days.

Her first night was a bit vocal for about an hour then all was quiet and she has been good
ever since. 
She's clean and hasn't had a single accident indoors. What a little star she is.

However she is a Blonde Bombshell and spends most of her day zooming around the garden or playing bitey face with Iggy. She likes to be outside most of the time but I'm sure she will
settle more as she gets used to living in a house

An absolutely gorgeous girl who will make a wonderful companion for some lucky person.

Tilly

Extremely Pretty Older Girl

 

Just arrived is Tilly, a slightly older girl at approximately 5 years old.  So far she is gentle and friendly with people and dogs.  A nice calm girl.  She is in season but will be up for homing in approximately two weeks.
