This black beauty is a 7 year old female greyhound who really just needs a nice retirement home. She is totally chilled and content just to go for short gentle walks. She spends the rest of her days lazing around. Cara (meaning friend) is gentle, seems happy to meet other dogs and has recently shared her kennel with a young female lurcher until she was adopted.

She has had an untreated leg injury in her past and, most likely, was no longer wanted because of this. However, the leg is fully healed and is not impeding her. According to the Vet it is now as good as it’ll ever be. While with the Vet she had her teeth cleaned!

So, she’s all ready to go to a new home now and we think she will make a lovely companion pet.

Cara has been spayed, microchipped (972274200409752), vaccinated and treated for worms and fleas.
