Stunning black and white ‘cowhound’ Bertie has been with us in kennels since the beginning of May. He has soon earned a reputation for being a friendly laid back hound, being very quiet in kennels and calmly waiting his turn when it’s time for ‘walkies’.
Regular volunteer Kirsten took Bertie on the Great Global Greyhound Walk where he behaved impeccably and enjoyed spending time in the lake. Kirsten obviously has a soft spot for Bertie and describes him as being a friendly, happy go lucky character and went as far as to say that she thinks ‘he’s the most amazing boy and deserves to be spoilt rotten forever’.
Bertie could easily live as an only dog or with another hound for company. He seems tolerant of other breeds of dog but could not live with cats or other small furry animals. If you would like to find out more about Bertie featured here please contact either Sue our re-homing co-ordinator on 07794463249 or Siobhan at kennels on 07960561988. Alternatively you can complete our short homing questionnaire on our websitewww.makantsgreyhoundrescue.co.uk which can be found under the ‘adopt/foster’ tab and one of our team will get back to you.
