23/8/12 Jude has found his forever home.
This fine looking chap is Jude and he’s a seven year old Bull Lurcher. Jude was a stray and sadly ended up in a pound in the north east. Fortunately, he’s now in the care of Northern Greyhound Rescue in Lancashire and we’re sure he’ll soon be snapped up by some lucky person.
Since arriving in rescue Jude has been an absolute gentleman. He may look like a big brute, but he is the most loving, soft and good natured boy you could wish to meet. He’s fine with all other dogs he meets out and about and he’s behaved exceedingly well with the three other male dogs he shares his foster home with.
Jude is housetrained and has been clean in the home since going into foster. He goes to sleep in his crate quite willingly by himself, and spends most of his time sleeping – he really is one of the most laid back dogs the rescue have ever had. He settles downstairs by himself overnight without problem, and can be left for short periods by himself.
Jude is good with children and as you can see from his photo, he’s quite happy to curl up on their knee! He has obviously been a working dog at some point and therefore is not cat or small furry friendly. The rescue don’t think he’s had a very nice past because he is full of scars, his teeth are ground down to almost nothing, and raised voices and sudden movements literally leave him frozen to the spot. It is heartbreaking to see because he is such a loving, friendly chap.
Even though Jude is more Bully than Houndy and not what you would term an elegant looking hound, he is the most incredibly loving boy who just wants to be given a chance and have someone who will be a best friend to him. He would love to be number one in someone’s world and have all the love and comforts he deserves.
Jude is vaccinated, microchipped, neutered and flea and worm treated. He can be homed both locally and nationally dependent on a succesful homecheck.
