Guinness is a lovely Bull Lurcher (Greyhound cross Staffordshire Bull Terrier aged 4 years old who came into our care as an unclaimed stray. He arrived with facial injury’s which have now healed well. He is a large boy and loves to play with toys in our outdoor enclosure. He is a very friendly and affectionate boy who is keen to please.
He is presently learning not to pull on the lead, he will need an experienced new owner who can further his training. Guinness loves running and playing and will need a loving home that can give him the exercise he needs.
As he came in as a stray we have no history on him but he can’t be rehomed with cats or small furries. Guinness has been good with dogs he has met here on-site. For further details about this lovely lad, please contact us using the About Us tab at the end of the page.

Guinness needs a special someone. He is an amazing dog, but needs an experienced owner with time to help him. He is now our longest resident rescue. He came in as a stray with significant wounds to his face, which have now healed. We believe he is ex-hunting and that is demonstrated in his keen attention to rabbits etc on walks. He is being walked on a figure of 8 lead as he can be quite strong (particularly when he spots a small furry). He is devoted to people and will turn and watch you as he walks, looking for instruction and attention. On the figure of 8 he walks well and will happily walk with other dogs. We are, however, recommending a home without another dog at this point. He can be possessive over toys and will be aggressive towards another dog wanting them off him.
We believe that this is his strong hunting instinct redirected on to toys. We are working with some behavioural techniques to make toys less important to him. For this reason, we are also recommending a home without small children. He is loyal and affectionate and keen to please and follow instructions. He has an amazing mind. We have found he is happy to be left for short periods of time and would love walks. He has a congenital defect in one of his bones, which means he may limp when over exerted, which requires no medication at the moment, but may in the future.
Poor Guinness has lots of things that limit his re-homing potential, but we feel that there is someone out there who could be blessed by the love he is keen to give.
