Greyhound & Lurcher



8 years old greyhound Tina has never had a home and was used for breeding after being retired from racing. Her teeth were in such a state when she came into the rescue that half of them had to be removed. She is quiet, gentle dog and would prefer a quiet home. Any chidren should be aged over 8 years. She can live with another greyhound or other big or medium size dog, but no cats. She does not need long walks. Two half hour walks day would be enough. Tina can be left in the house for a couple of hours. She travels well. Tina been spayed, micro-chipped and fully vaccinated. Is there anyone who could make Tina's Christmas wish come true and give her a lovely home, please?

If you would like to know more about Tina, or may be able to give her a home, please ring Julie at Essex Greyhound Rescue on 0796 7327544 ro e-mail Julie Terry <>
