Please meet gorgeous whippet x,  Barrett. He has recently arrived from Ireland having been abandoned on the side of the road at five months old. He is now approximately eight months old and is looking for an active forever home. As he is only a baby still he will need someone about for most of the day.

He is a very, very clever boy and is eager to learn. He would love the company of a confident dog who would be willing to play with him and teach him the ropes. He is currently in foster with a mixed pack of seven dogs both greyhound/lurcher and terrier sized.

If you think that you could offer this lad his forever home then please get in touch.
