Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue, Jade the lurcher
GALR homepage


Poor Roman has been in the kennels for longer than any other dog. Roman is a male Lurcher who is approximately 4 years old.Roman is a gorgeous chap who looks like he’s had a rough start to life. He arrived quite underweight and does have sores on him. Since being here he has started to gain weight and is beginning to get a lot more out-going. He is shy when he first meets new people but once he knows you he is the most lovely, exceptionally affectionate lad and enjoys human contact so much. Roman doesn’t know many commands and will need help along with this. Any new home will need to give him time to settle and have patience with his training. We think that he would be happiest in a home where he is the only dog. Roman would be able to be homed in a family with children 5+.   He is in the kennels in Devon.

Micky is a stunning brindle and white lurcher young boy and considering how he was found, he is in beautiful condition, with a soft and smooth coat, and he has a fab personality. Poor thing was found dumped in a field in the middle of nowhere clearly been there for some time as he had tried to make a bed in the grass in the pouring rain. When he was found he looked like he had lost the will to live, poor soul.  Micky is good on the lead, walked past all the other dogs, sniffed and said hello, tail wagging like mad and no aggression shown. He doesn’t yet know any commands, he loves treats and takes them nicely, he loves a gentle rub under the chin on both sides while he rests his head on your lap with his eyes closed. Micky has a super waggy tail and he is so handsome, he could be a male pin up in the lurcher community, has very striking eyes. Mickey is in the kennels in Devon.
