Del Boy is an ex racing greyhound who has recently joined us.

He is about 5.5 years old.

He is good with big dogs, but not small dogs or other small pets.

He’s an ex-racer, he was last raced in March, the weekend before the lockdown.

Because he’s an ex-racer he still has his chase instincts but he is adorable.

He’s so lovely and has adapted really well to home life. He’s completely chilled and calm and so laid back and relaxed.

He’s really cuddly and he walks lovely, until he sees something he wants to chase and then you have to be prepared to hold him back.

He’s good with meeting other dogs and he’s really happy to see them.

He wears a muzzle when he is out, just in case a small dog runs too close to him. He’s never done anything, but it’s a precaution. It’s quite common with ex-racers that you muzzle them while you’re out and about until you know what they’re like.

This dog has been reserved, which means that they will be meeting people so that a trial can take place. You can still apply for adoption, however please note that if the trial period is successful then Del Boy will no longer be available to be rehomed.

If you have already been homechecked you may not need to fill out a new application, just email and let us know. Homes already checked will get priority.

Adoption fee is £250 per dog unless otherwise agreed. This is payable at the time you take a dog on a two-week trial.
