Current Status: Available Shadow needs
a supportive family to offer time and tolerance to allow their new dog to settle. Shadow needs commitment to exercise outside on a muzzle and support him in relaxing around other dog's company. Shadow need a enclosed secure garden in order for him to enjoy off lead exercise. Shadow needs to be a only pet. Shadow could live around children but providing strict exit management/ front door drill. NB Our Rescue asks owners to maintain dogs on lead in public spaces and manage encounters, as dog law changes place dog's lives at greater risk.Known background:
Shadow owned since a puppy, his owner died and he travelled into Rescue from Leicester. Shadow then came to us when a volunteer asked us if we could help. Shadow is neutered, chipped and vaccinated. Shadow is now in boarding kennels in Gatwick.About Shadow:
Aptly named Shadow will be your shadow if allowed..but then he is also chilled in the home and like all Greyhounds..happy to watch. Easy company. Shadow has chase/ prey drive so needs to be muzzled in public but very relaxed now around dogs which is different to how he arrived. Shadow has regained his confidence around dogs and his play instincts are there. Shadow travels well and is a back seat lounger as he is a sofa loofa.
Shadow is a 7 year old Greyhound lurcher with a grey brindle coat and arrived with half a tail. He has gained weight and his tummy has settled on a raw food diet. He has lost fur which is probably due to stress in long-term kennelling, our vet has investigated and found no condititional cause: Shadow is not bothered by this. Shadow has a big fan club following wishing him that his family finds him soon!

Shadow came to us very under weight but over the course of a week has be wormed and he is on a build diet and beginning to put on weight again. He is housetrained and tries to keep his kennel clean. He is beginning to walk with other dogs and beginning to relax in their company. We are going to muzzle him on his walks so he can relax more.
