Peppa – 16 week old female Lurcher

Peppa is a 16 week old Lurcher girl who already has quite a colourful past. She was handed in at the vets at only 5 weeks old with instructions to euthanise due to being very poorly. Thankfully the vets refused and nursed her back to health.

Peppa was taken home by one of the vet nurses during her recovery and was living with her resident dogs and cats. Unfortunately although she was good with both dogs and cats, the nurse also had chickens and Peppa has already had hold of one. This prompted the vet nurse to feel she couldn’t keep her.

Peppa is now in foster with other dogs and cats and doing really well. She is however a VERY confident puppy and her foster home feels she is going to be quite energetic. We think from looking at her that her breeding is probably Greyhound cross Collie.

She is doing well with her house training and sleeps quietly in the crate all night. Her socialisation is fine and yesterday she attended an agility competition with the foster carers other dogs and greeted everyone and everything quite happily.

Peppa will be a joyous addition to any household. Either a family environment as an only dog but with someone who has plenty of time to put into keeping her occupied both physically AND mentally or as part of a pack. She does take discipline from older pack members well but has been described as a bit of a diva so possibly a very dominant older bitch in the long run may not be the best idea.

We feel that Peppa would thrive totally in an environment with a family interested in general obedience or agility based activities.

Peppa is located in Merseyside

Peppa is vaccinated, de flead and wormed and will shortly be microchipped. Anyone interested in offering Peppa a home will have to commit to having her spayed at a relative age agreed before adoption and proof provided to ourselves.

Greyhound Gap
Greyhound Gap

Greyhound Gap is a small independent charity set up to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome greyhounds and lurchers who find themselves in a ‘put to sleep’ situation in UK pounds. Funded almost entirely by donations, we rehome around 150 dogs each year. We can have around 40-50 dogs at any one time in our kennels based in Kidsgrove, Stoke on Trent and a further 30-40 in foster homes. Greyhound Gap operates on a national basis so our dogs can be homed throughout the UK subject to a suitable home visit being carried out.

If you are interested in adopting a dog from Greyhound Gap, we would ask that in the first instance you could take a few moments to complete our pre-adoption questionnaire if you have not already done so:
