Lacey is a one year old saluki Lurcher. She was found dumped, and was taken to the local pound. During the seven days that she spent there, she lost an incredible amount of weight and was in a very poor condition when we collected her. She was emaciated, full of worms, had a dull coat and a terrible bout of kennel cough. Despite the terrible time that she has suffered you can’t help but fall in love with her because she is just so affectionate and eager to please. There is no way that you can ignore Lacey, she constantly wants cuddles and does all she can to let you know it. She loves to give bear hugs and pushes her little head into your hands if you are walking along and not giving her enough attention!
Poor Lacey has very obviously had a difficult start to life. When she first came, if she heard a raised voice she would fall to the ground on her back. Two months on she is much improved but it will take time for her to learn to trust and believe that noone is going to hurt her. We do not know what has happened in Lacey’s past, it almost doesn’t bear thinking about. She is missing the end of one of her back toes, and when she came her tail was badly fractured in three places. She has obviously suffered trauma to her back legs at some point, but she doesn’t let it stop her. She would happily play for hours and hours with the other young Lurcher that she is currently living with in her foster home.
Lacey is good off her lead, she comes back when called and will play well with dogs of all different shapes and sizes. She is currently living with quite a few other dogs but we think that she would be best homed either with just one other dog, or as an only dog providing that the potential owner was at home most of the time. Lacey is a very friendly, affectionate and loving dog who be a loyal and faithful companion. She loves to play, and is still a real puppy at heart. She has come so far in such a short time and with a lot of love and attention in a forever home, she will continue to blossom.
Lacey is spayed, microchipped, vaccinated and flead and wormed. She can be homed both locally and nationally dependent on a successful homecheck.
