Greyhound & Lurcher


Dog of the Week


Age: about 2-3 years | Dog | Lurcher

Rescue: Noah's Ark Dog Rescue

We received a desperate plea on Sunday afternoon from a lovely lady from North Lincolnshire who was visiting her elderly parents in a small village near Huntingdon. Being lurcher owners themselves for many years, they had received a knock on their door from a villager who had found an emaciated and starving Saluki lurcher in the local fields. This poor dog was so thin that you could see every rib and his protruding hip bones. He also had a few nasty open wounds (probably from barbed wire) on his legs and he was filthy. It looked like he’d been straying for a while as he was in a terrible state. Of course, he was not microchipped so had probably been used for coursing and been dumped. We were asked to help as a local charity rescue had refused to take him and, although we already have a number of dogs still waiting for their forever homes, our hearts ruled our heads and we welcomed him into the Arkies family. We’ve named him Hunter and he is approximately 2-3 years old. He’s had a bath and underneath all the dirt, he is actually a beautiful dog. A couple of months later and HUNTER is now ready for adoption, he is microchipped and vaccinated but still needs to be neutered which will be done prior to him leaving kennels. He is a lovely friendly boy and needs a home with no cats all small furries. He can live with kids over 8 years old and live with another dog. If you are interested in offering Hunter a home please complete an application form Home check and adoption fee apply. We have reduced the adoption fee for Hunter to £190 now instead of £300 as he is a long stayer.
