DOG OF THE WEEK - JOKER

Handsome black greyhound Joker was retired from racing almost a year ago because of an injury, which has now fully healed. He has been in the rescue kennels since then and is still looking for a home,  Joker is a calm, well behaved and very friendly dog,but sadly black male greyhounds are frquently overlooked by prospective new owners.  He was born in September 2016.  The rescue that is caring for Joker is no longer taking new dogs is and after the end of May he will be the only dog left in the kennels in Dorset, so he is going to be very lonely if he doesn't have a home to go to.  PLEASE think about giving this lovely dog a home.  If you can help, e-mail info@straydogssanctuary.co.uk or ring Judy on 01202 696685.  RESERVED

Our website is dedicated to helping to find good homes for abandoned, abused or neglected greyhound and lurchers.

We have a list of rescues that help these loving, gentle dogs. If you are thinking of giving one of these dogs a second chance by adopting a greyhound or lurcher, please contact one of the rescues on the list.

We have a frequently asked questions page, but if you have a question about greyhounds and lurchers that is not on the page, please contact us.
