This poor boy is Shaggy and he has been through so much in such a short amount of time. He was brought into us by a member of the public as a sick stray.

Shaggy's coat was in a sorry state and his paw was swollen and hot to the touch. Even though he was in so much pain his personality still shinned through and was such a good boy for the vets who were helping him. Shaggy is an incredibly loving and affectionate young boy, who will bring so much love to his new family. 

Lurchers are one of the most sweetest breeds and are always so gentle no matter how much they are suffering or how frightened they are. They are all legs and love. They are known to be couch potatoes and this is true but only after they have been exercised. Lurchers will happily do 2 walks a day and this should always include zoomie time where they can run off lead in a safe enclosed environment. They burn energy really quickly so after zoomies it's snuggle time with their humans on the couch. Be sure to have  time for cuddle time because this is one of their specialties and they are great at it! Could this adorable boy be the one you have been looking for?
