Greyhound & Lurcher



Hi I'm Betty and I'm a Lurcher cross lass who's been here at the sanctuary for 970 days, I am 4 years old and am neutered and vaccinated.
I was brought in originally because I was dumped out of a car! How do you think that made me feel? It was awful and I've been scared ever since.
I was found a home which sadly wasn't to be as the owner found me too energetic. To be honest, I haven't been right since and feel nervous and rejected, craving to be part of the family again where I can grow in confidence and find my place in the world once more.
Whilst I have human and canine friends at ARC I desperately need a home with an owner who can invest time, training and TLC in my well being giving me the stability and nurturing that I need to feel steadfast and settled in myself. In return an eternally loyal and lasting companion is just waiting to be unleashed in more ways than one! Please, please give me that chance; you won't regret it and it'll be the most worthwhile deed you ever did. Please put an end to me walking back to an empty basket when all my friends find homes, I'll show you the meaning of all my love for always in all ways and just want to be your beautiful Betty.
