Bristol DAWG

Greyhound and Lurcher Rescue


Hi everyone 

My name is Puma and I am Panther's half brother. I am just as handsome as he is,

but not quite so confident. I am looking forward now to finding my forever home just like he has.

I was born in July 2014 and although I did race, now it's time for me to start to learn about the big wide world – I’m learning fast already and enjoying my new adventure. 

I'm not as big as my brother and I know us boys are not as popular, most people seem to prefer girls and being black, it could stop me getting a home quickly, but I have a beautiful shiny coat and the volunteers say I am absolutely stunning.

I walk well on my lead, and I am enjoying my regular walks with John who takes me out every day.

It is a well-known fact that some rescues are reluctant to take big black boys because we are more difficult to rehome – thank goodness Eila rescued me and my half brother Panther and that Bristol DAWG took us, as I really don’t want to think about what could have happened to us!! 

In the time it will take me to find a home, the charity could probably rehome about four pretty girls through each kennel, but the trustees don’t look at things this way and I know I have definitely landed on all four paws here!!

At the moment I know nothing about home life and all the nice things that come with it, but I have been promised that I will find a lovely home with a family who will show me what I’ve been missing.

As I have not really encountered children, the trustees think that I would be better with older ones, so if you are looking for a wonderful dog that is looking forward to learning about life beyond a kennel, please call one of the trustees to arrange to come and meet me – I would definitely like to meet you.

Sadly I cannot live with cats.
