Lovely Levi

  • Greyhound

Levi is quite a character – just look at those ears: it must be something in the genes! This handsome chap is eight years old, but he’s still very new to the world outside his racing kennel and is regarding all the new experiences with wide-eyed wonder. He ran in the UK before having a career in Ireland, and retired in 2013 – and he’s been waiting for his forever home ever since.

Already enjoying a few home comforts chez Forever Hounds Trust, Levi adores his food and has developed a love of soft toys – he gets really excited when he sees them and likes to throw them around. He still quite nervous while he’s finding his feet, and would appreciate a quieter home. For these reasons, he would be better living with older children or teenagers rather than younger children. Levi is happy around other dogs, and will greet them enthusiastically. He could live with a calm canine companion who could show him the ropes (as long as they don’t steal his toys) but will need time socialising around small breeds. Could you give this sweet boy a new start in life?
