My name is Barkley and I am very, very, very sad boy.
Eight years ago I thought I had found my forever home, but unfortunately my owners have split up, and I find myself homeless. My mum did everything she could to keep me as she had me from eight weeks old, but now working full time and having to sell the house, she just had to let me go. She did ask all family and friends if they could take me, but unfortunately there was no room at the inn!!
I am heart broken and I am also missing my friend as I used to live with a little Jack Russell – mum managed to find him a home. My world has fallen apart – what did I do wrong?
I am housetrained, good with other dogs, both large and small, used to children, even toddlers, lovely with people, I rarely bark – all in all the Trustees tell me I have a lot going for me, but it doesn’t take away the pain of losing my home.
Although I am eight years young, I am extremely fit and healthy, as I have been very well looked after - please remember that Lurchers can live up until sixteen so I am really only middle aged.
I am very playful and enjoy a good run.
Please come and meet me, as it is always harder when you have experienced home life to move to a kennel environment – although they are very kind to me at the kennels I am finding it very hard as this situation is totally alien to me and a bit of a shock!!
I watch people come and go at the kennels, I am looking for my owner but deep down I know she is not coming for me.
If you feel you could offer a very handsome boy a forever loving home, I could be just what you are looking for.
One very sad Barkley.
