Failing health has forced Gracie’s ageing adopter to give her up so that someone else can look after her. Aged eight, she has all the attributes any dog lover could ask for, including good recall and lead walking, and cleanliness. As a bonus she is also happy to be left alone for periods of time.

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.

Of Jasmine, Lurcher SOS says:

Lovely Gracie was homed by us two years ago to an older adopter. Sadly his health is failing so Gracie has to find a new home. Gracie is about eight years old now, is good on a lead, has recall and is totally clean. She is fine to be left and likes nothing more than to lie around all day till her walks. She is nervous of fireworks, like many dogs, but that is about her only problem. She loves people and would like nothing better than a new retirement home where she can get all the fuss and attention. Gracie is vaccinated and neutered, microchipped and wormed.

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.
