Does the animal have rescue back up?: Yes
(i.e. Is a rescue taking responsibility for rehoming the animal(s) and any issues that may arise once the animal(s) is/are rehomed?)

His Story: Found stray - unclaimed.

Salient points: Young wire haired Lurcher. Limited assessment, but gentle natured. Good at mixing with dogs outside. Newly neutered.

Advert: Bailey is a young Lurcher who was found stray. He has been in kennels for 7 months. We have now heard of him and been busy preparing him for homing. He isn't coping well in kennels and has developed patches on his coat probably due to kennel stress. The sooner we can find his home or move him into foster the better.

Bailey has been causing a stir in our rescue with the amount of interest he is generating and indeed as occurred when he went to the vets for neutering. He is a gentle lad, medium size for a Lurcher not full Greyhound size. Bailey will need time to settle into his home and pick up with housetraining and house rules generally ... so we are a looking for a family who have the skills to offer him, enabling him to feel reassured and give him the companionship and time to find himself. Beautiful lad who needs a new beginning, true to his name ...a very sweet and popular Spirit.

Please visit Bailey's individual thread, in Dogs needing homes in our care on this forum to find out more about him and follow his progress.

If you are interested in re-homing please complete our homing questionnaire so we can ensure our dogs are matched and will suit your circumstances/lifestyle.

"Please note that this dog is currently in kennels and is also available for foster until a 'forever' home is found".

An update from Bailey’s foster home:

“So pleased to see Bailey today looking a lot brighter. As promised, we took him for a walk along the River and boy was he pleased to be out.

Met a little friend on our travels.

Bailey was very happy today and was more than ready for a lovely long walk. Enjoyed his walk with Merlin but does think every Dog wants to play. I would love to see this boy off lead and do what he was born to do run, run and then some. I bet he looks magnificent in full flight.

A real special boy Bailey and met his "fan" today at the kennels who so wishes her life was different so she could have him”.

Bailey is back on the rehoming list - this wasn't it for him. We have updated his ad and he is still looking for a foster or forever home.

Bailey, Lurcher, 2 years old

http://gallery.myff.org/gallery/640664/Bailey4.jpg (http://gallery.myff.org/gallery/640664/Bailey4.jpg)

His Story: Found stray - unclaimed. Was 1 year in kennels now in foster home. Wonderful 'puppy' dog..adjusted to home life fast post kennelling.

Salient points: Young wire haired Lurcher. Good with dogs, but he is mouthy in his relationships engaging in play as they do! Still 'chewy'..moving through puppy developments possibly first time in a home environment. Not for cats and Lurcher experienced home if to live with other dogs.

Advert: Bailey is a young Lurcher who was found stray and kennelled for 1 year. Bailey is now in foster and living in a home environment perhaps for the first time. His housetraining is there. In fact has done remarkable well in the home with one exception, he can chew when left, but is fast working through this latent puppy phase. Currently exercised on an extender as he learns manners. When restrained by a lead he knows how to gain his freedom! Oh yes very adept with his mouth and oh so clever: Easily checked just don't let your eye off the ball! This is probably exactly how he gained his freedom a year ago so who can blame him. He needs lots of free expression in a secure garden. Bailey is just building his muscle bulk up and adores lovely walks and running like the wind. Meets dogs nicely, but with 'play overtures', though generally well received.

Bailey is spectacular to behold and mesmerising to see in 'full flight' He isn't a full size greyhound, but yes he is tall. Bailey adores people and is oh so loving. Bailey could live with older children who are conscious of how to receive his energy, but needs supervision around visiting children. We are looking for a family who have the skills to offer him, enabling him to feel reassured and give him the companionship and time to find himself. Beautiful lad true to his name ...a very sweet and popular Spirit.
