No one wants to adopt Arthur because he’s a lurcher

Arthur is adorable, but it seems this three-year-old athletic pooch hasn’t found a home yet. At the Jerry Green Dog Rescue in Nottinghamshire, Arthur’s breed as a “lurcher” seems to have made him less desirable – then let’s say a beagle. None of us can imagine what could be wrong with a cross between a Greyhound and a terrier, and so we are going to share this boy’s plight in the hope his future loving family will read his story and hurry on to the rescue and adopt Arthur.

Let’s not waste another word and introduce Arthur in his own words. He arrived at the rescue in March and had been a starving stray in his old life.

Since being here and feeling so much love I really do feel like a little puppy again, playing with soft toys is my favourite but cuddles with these kind humans is a close second. I never knew what toys or cuddles were before coming here, but I sure do now. I am looking for a home of my own where I will be the centre of someone’s world and spoilt rotten. The home I have been dreaming of, and well what I deserve to have, would be where my favourite people are going to be around for most of the day as I do struggle to be on my own now I know what love feels like. I would love to be the only pet in the home as being a Lurcher I do love to chase small fluffy things. I can also be a bit worried by other dogs so I would need to be the only dog in the home. This way I can get all the attention. The one thing I would love to have is my very own secure garden where I can zoom around with my toys, 6ft fencing should be enough to contain me. I could live with children ages 12+ as I can be a bit bouncy sometimes, you know I am a Lurcher and I have legs for days. If you have room in your heart and on your sofa for a sweet boy like me please do get in touch with my friends here at the Nottingham Centre on 01623 792886 or drop them an email at I will be waiting patiently for you, lots of licks Arthur

A few weeks ago, Arthur’s best canine pal, Tess found her forever home. Sadly, she had to leave Arthur behind. And while so many other dogs are finding their new families, it is thought that being a lurcher is working against him.

Sadly lurchers, more often than not, get overlooked in rescue but we are truly wonderful, I promise! I am really looking forward to the day when I get to meet my forever family. In the meantime, could I ask that you help my friends here at the Nottinghamshire Centre by sponsoring my kennel for just £1 per week? Your support will help keep me looking my very best for that special day when a family falls in love with me
