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.

* Height To The Shoulder (in inches): 26 inches
* Ok with other Dogs? Yes
* Cat Friendly? No
* Ok with kids? Older kids
* Can she/he be an only dog? Yes she can

Iona is a 4 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

 

 

 

* Name: Dara
* Sex: Male Neutered
* Approximate Age: about 6
* Height To The Shoulder (in inches): 26 inches
* Ok with other Dogs? Yes
* Cat Friendly? No
* Ok with kids? They may scare him.
* Can she/he be an only dog? He would need another dog for company

Dear Dara has had a hard life and the scars covering his sweet body are testament to that awful life. Let me explain that his scars come from being worked hard, going thru barbed wire and the like.  They are not from fights and he is in no way at all aggressive.   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.Dara needs to go to a home with another dog for company.

I can say, hand on heart, that Dara does not have any faults.  Please don't overlook this boy because of his scars.  Let him know love and care and a forever sofa... hopefully yours..... soon.
