Can you home a dog?

HERE is this month’s selection of lovely dogs from Dogs Trust Merseyside.


DOG BREED: Lurcher


Jay can be a very timid lad but comes alive when he’s around other dogs. He has a real cheeky streak and is looking for a family that can introduce him to a whole new world of adventures. He has a sofa in his kennel that he absolutely loves – he sprawls across the whole thing or curls up in the corner, but he’s definitely made it his own!

He gets along well with other dogs, and although he will walk happily with males, he does prefer to play off lead with the girls. Because of his shyness, he would prefer to live with older children, aged 15 and above.


DOG NAME: Robbie    

DOG BREED: Greyhound


Robbie is a very sociable Greyhound who adores doggy company. He can often be found cuddled up to his kennel mate, chilling out and watching the world go by. He’s very friendly with humans too, and quite a relaxed lad all around, though he gets a little giddy when he knows it’s his time for walkies!

Robbie is an ex racer so care should always be taken around other small animals.  He’ll be ecstatic in a home with a big comfy duvet, other dogs, and children aged 10 and over.



DOG BREED: Greyhound


Pretty girl Skyla loves to put her paws on shoulders to give maximum cuddles! She’s such a sweet and loving girl, quite dinky for a Greyhound but a huge heart. She bonds with people very quickly and is very affectionate and great with everyone she meets, including other dogs. She would happily live with another dog and can live with children aged around 10. Dogs Trust are unsure if she is housetrained or not. Because she bonds so well with people, she would thrive in a multi person household where she wouldn’t be left alone too often.
