DOGS OF THE WEEK  - TASHA and POPPY.

Sweet old lady Tasha is in her retirement years... she’s very affectionate and loves people of all ages! Tasha has been with us a long time, and we are desperate for her to spend the latter part of her life in a cosy foster home... could you offer her that?
Tash is a medium sized Lurcher, who will do anything for a tasty snack! She’s surprisingly agile when she wants to be! Sadly she isn’t a fan of other dogs, and had to be walked muzzled... she walks well.. but isn’t about the bad weather and will happily snooze those rainy days away! She will need to be the only pet in the home. Tasha would be an ideal candidate for someone who is around a fair amount, and who has a large secure garden for her to potter around in.. and obviously someone who will provide treats and cuddles on tap!She has had a lump removed from her neck (came back ok) and is on an anti inflammatory for her stiff joints... however all medication cost would be covered by the charity. Please share far and wide... this lady deserves some home comforts after spending most of her life in kennels.  If you would like to give Tasha a new home, please contact the rescue on 01335 300825.

Pretty greyhound is Poppy has never raced and could live with a cat with careful introduction. Poppy is very nervous of men and we are looking for a foster home for her with someone with experience of caring for nervous dogs and who can help her to overcome her fears. Poppy has been vaccinated, spayed and micro-chipped.  If you would like to give Poppy a home ring Julie on 07967 327544 or e-mail Julie Terry at julieterry56@icloud.com  Photo at https://www.greyhoundandlurcherrescue.co.uk/adopt-a-dog/5447/poppy
