DOG OF THE WEEK -  ELLIE. Beautiful cat friendly saluki cross Ellie has been living with her owner for a long time, but her owner will be going to live abroad shortly and has had to make the difficult decision to look for a new home for her. Ellie is good with dogs as well as cats, and has been living with two cats. She is a timid girl who is happiest in the company of woman, but is nervous of men, so needs a home where her main carer is female. She is very timid of strangers. She is not used to children, so needs an adult only home. Ellie would love to have another lurcher or greyhound for company if possible. She weighs 20kg, so is quite a small lurcher. Ellie is fine with horses and cattle, but is not good with sheep She is very good both on and off lead. She has been vaccinated, spayed and micro-chipped. If you may be able to give Ellie a new home, please ring her owner Nina on 07917 843930. She is in east Dorset .Photo on the adopt a dog page.


URGENT - Beautiful golden brindle 7 year old whippet/lurcher Minnie urgently needs a new home because of a change in her owner's circumstances.  Minnie is a lovely natured dog who loves people and is very affectionate. She is quite an energetic, strong natured girl who needs a home where she will have plenty of long walks. Her recall is excellent and she is very good with dogs she knows, but can be wary of dogs she meets for the first time. Minnie is not keen on cats. She is fine when left on her own in the home. Minnie is fully vaccinated, and has been spayed and micro-chipped. If may be able to give Minnie a new home, please ring her owner Sam on 07972071135, She is in Essex.  Photo on the "adopt a dog"  page.

URGENT FOSTER OR PERMANENT HOME NEEDED - 2 year old lurcher Lolly urgently neeeds a foster or permanent home.  She was in a short term foster home, but had to go into kennels and is not at all happy there. Because she is nervous of other dogs, being in an environment where there are a large number of them is a traumatic experience for her.  If you can help, please ring Julie at Essex Greyhound Rescue on 01702 460631 or 0796 7327544 or e-mail Julie Terry at julieterry56@icloud.com
