Bull LurcherLesterDogLovely Lester is a young bull lurcher, he absolutely adores human contact. Lester was on death row in a council pound after being found as a stray. With Rescue spaces like gold dust, Lester was down to his last 48 hours when GRWE stepped in and made a space for him. Lester is a very affectionate boy, he is very friendly and good with other dogs when out and about. We estimate him to be between 1 and 2 years old. He loves food and will be very trainable. Lester is in great condition and has a clean bill of health from our vets.

Lester is more bull breed in appearance, apart from his long legs and turn of speed but does have some obvious lurcher mannerisms. He has a lovely gloss black coat and a tail that never stops wagging. Lester loves to play, it’s almost as important as cuddles in Lester's book…

Lester would be fine as an only dog, he will bring fun, affection and loyalty to any new home. He could easily be trained to enjoy pastimes such as agility, fly-ball, etc.

GreyhoundAliceDogAlice is a dinky blue girl with the most beautiful amber eyes (believe me, the pictures don’t do them justice!) and she is 4.5 years old. She plays nicely with our other hounds but she will need to be the only dog in her forever home and could happily be built up to spending a few hours on her own. She can be a little unsure of herself at times when she is on her walks so sometimes needs some gentle encouragement to feel confident moving again. She LOVES her food and likes to play 'go find' games with little bits of kibble and sausage!F3-6Click here to see larger image of Alice
GreyhoundBridieDogBeautiful Bridie is a lovely lady. She is ten years old and never had a sofa to call her own. Bridie spent all her life in racing kennels before coming to GRWE and moving into her current foster home. She has settled very well, she is house trained and very well behaved. As much as her foster family love her they cannot keep her so we really do need to find a loving forever home which is nothing less than Bridie deserves.

Bridie is fabulous with humans, she is loving, loyal and affectionate. At ten years old she is in very good health and as fit as fiddle, she loves to stretch her legs and have a bounce around the garden.

Bridie is a dream to walk on the lead, she is still learning about the big wide world but is coping very well and will soon be the finished article.

LurcherFelixDogWhat a handsome lad Felix is. If you like your fellas well muscled he is the man for you. He is a big strong dog who is enjoying training opportunities because he loves to learn. Felix was not sure how to communicate with people when he first arrived in the rescue and didn’t know how to give and receive affection but he has really blossomed and is looking for love. He is quite choosy about his doggy friends preferring quiet polite dogs to unfriendly ones but who can blame him? He loves to please and is looking for experienced Lurcher owners because he is quite keen. In his dream home he would love to continue with his training.M3-6Click here to see larger image of Felix
LurcherMurdochDogHello everyone, my name is Murdoch. I am a little fawn lurcher of around two, and rather sweet if you ask me. Is it ok for a boy dog to be called “sweet little Murdoch?” I kind of think it suits me.
I was found as a stray with my friend Phoebe, we have a story to tell, but is anyone listening? How we came to be abandoned together is a mystery which only we know. However, we are now looking to the future, not dwelling on our past. To be honest I was a bit bossy with Phoebe (she is quite young and I had to tell her how to behave, and I actually didn’t share my toys very nicely either) so the people looking after us think that we will both be better without each other. I’m fine with that (she is a diva anyway, and I am a far more down to earth kinda chap) so – onwards and upwards!
I would love to have my own home and a new family of my very own to love and be loved by. I’m pretty small, and probably have a bit of terrier in me, which means that I’m a quick thinker, a risk taker, an athlete, and oh so loyal..what more could you possibly want?
