Bobby is a lovely 4 year old greyhound who was bred for racing but decided that it was not for him and that he would rather live life at a more sedate pace. Bobby has had experience of living in a home and is housetrained but may need to continue this training. He enjoys his walks and does not pull on a lead.

Bobby is very affectionate and bonds quickly with a person, although he may be a bit unsure of new people when he first meets them. As with most greyhounds, he has a calm demeanour but also has his fun moments when he loves to have a zoom around. Bobby is generally dog social but can find small dogs unnerving and will try to avoid them. Bobby is very nervous around children and so he must go to an adult only home. 

Bobby shows little interest in cats when he meets them but as a precaution, we would not home him with cats or small furry pets. He can get anxious being left alone so would suit someone who is at home quite a lot or can take him along with them. He settles down to snooze on a comfortable bed in our office so could be a candidate for going to work with someone.

If you think Bobby may be the dog for you, please book an appointment to come and meet him. You will not be disappointed as he has a lovely gentle nature and will make a wonderful companion.


On average, we have 400 animals come into our shelter every year. Please take a look at some of our dogs looking for loving homes and see if you can find a friend for life. Where appropriate, all of our animals are vaccinated, microchipped and neutered. We also give each animal a behavioural assessment to identify their needs and help you find your perfect companion.
