This sweet little lady is Ebony, a five-month-old lurcher pup whose foster mum describes her as an “angel”. Abandoned in a pound, she was picked up by Dundalk Dog Rescue and eventually found her way to the UK and Lurcher SOS.

Lurchers are affectionate, loveable and enjoy a bit of fun. They are quick learners, great companions and perfect for families who enjoy getting outdoors. We know from experience that one walk a day will suffice, although two is better (for all concerned). Lurchers are quick, agile dogs that like nothing more than to charge around on open ground. Once back home, though, they are generally docile creatures, happy to curl up on the sofa or lie flat out on their backs, paws pointed skywards.

Ebony’s foster mum says:

This girl is an angel puppy. She is playful but calm, happy and gentle, and loves all dogs and people. She sleeps through the night in her little crate and is clean. Some wee accidents during the day but not many. Bright, intelligent, a total gift of a puppy. Adorable.

While based in the south of England, Lurcher SOS has re-homed dogs as far afield as Scotland and Wales.

Go on, give a deserving dog a home.
