KING needs a forever home

KING – our dog of the month for December

10 year old KING has recently joined us having lived in a kennel environment all his life. He’s easy to walk and, even though he is older, he still likes being taken on long walks. He seems a fairly confident lad and is now having his first experience of the big wide world being in foster care with Marzena, Jan & adopted Makants hound LOTTIE in Atherton.

His foster carers tell us: ‘KING has been with us for 6 weeks now and he is lovely gentle lad. He was quite bewildered at the beginning, but is very adaptable and learnt very quickly. He was very shy the first couple of days but has now come out of his shell, showing a gentle, but playful personality. He loves cuddles and to play with squeaky toys and has  made really good progress with house training. He is a quick learner and, even though stairs are new to him, he can use them competently now. He also  knows when his meals should be ready!


KING sleeps well all night and loves to travel in the car, in fact he can’t get enough of this new world that he now has the opportunity to explore and has recently enjoyed walks to Worsley Woods and Haigh Woodland Park.

KING also quickly realised what sofas are for, and has made the lounge couch his favourite resting spot!’

KING has also been very good with LOTTIE, understanding where he fits in the household. His foster carers feel he could live  with another female greyhound or equally would be happy as a sole dog too.

Most things outside of kennel life are completely new for KING so he needs a home where he can take his time getting to know his surroundings and his home, with the prospective adopter having patience and allowing KING the time and space to settle into his new home. We don’t feel KING could live with small dogs and is not cat friendly.
