Rescue dog looking for home where he doesn’t have to walk alone

Ex-racing dog is looking for a new home where he can enjoy walks with the company of other dogs.

Staff at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe are hoping that a dog-lover and their four-legged friend will soon come along to adopt a dog who enjoys walks most when he has a furry friend by his side.

Ex-racing Greyhound, Dan is currently living life in a temporary foster home with his four-legged friends Charlie the Terrier and Rollo the Crossbreed. His foster carers say he enjoys plenty of fuss, soft squeaky toys and a walk, providing he has his buddies to walk with him.

Elise Watson, Rehoming Centre Manager at Dogs Trust Ilfracombe, said: “Dan is an absolute sweetheart, but he really needs a canine chum to give him the confidence to realise that the big wide world isn’t that scary. He enjoys his walks but is far happier when he can share a stroll with another doggie friend. Placing him in a foster home with an existing dog has worked wonders for his confidence so we definitely want him to go to a forever home with an existing dog.

“He is a really lovely, clever boy and adores his food, so he is doing well with his training. He would love a quiet home with a nice big garden where he could thrive at the heart of the family and can with children ahead over 14. We’re hoping that very soon he’ll be in a forever home of his own and can finally walk along with another doggy friend for the rest of his life.”
