Greyhound & Lurcher


Dog of the week - Jayjay

Jayjay has been in the rescue kennels for over 18 months and has seen all his fellow greyhounds who came in with him go to new homes, but sadly no-one seems to want him. Jayjay is a handsome black greyhound who has a very gentle nature. He loves people and likes playing fetch with a ball, and always brings the ball back. He is good with other greyhounds, but can be wary of small dogs, so will need careful introduction to them. Jayjay would love to find a home with an experienced greyhound owner who already has a female greyhound or lurcher, or he could be an only dog, as long as he is not left on his own for more than 4 hours a day. PLEASE think about giving this beautiful boy the home he needs so much. Jayjay is in the kennels in Dorset.
