Contrary to what people tend to think, Greyhounds and Lurchers, known as Sighthounds, are often couch potatoes and don’t need as much exercise as everyone expects, instead after an energetic burst they like nothing more than cosying up on a big bed in a warm home.

These seven leggy lovelies at Dogs Trust Kenilworth are all looking for a relaxed pace of life where they can put their paws up on a comfy sofa.

Emma-Jane Thomas, manager at the Honiley based rehoming centre, said: “Sadly many Greyhounds and Lurchers end up in rescue centres like ours waiting for a loving home to spend the rest of their lives in. People often assume they are dogs that need lots of exercise but that’s not the case. They are definitely strong and fast but they are surprisingly lazy and very loyal, which is why they make great pets.

“All of our Sighthounds are different in their personalities, but all have the desire to find a loving home in common. We hope people will be encouraged to find out more about Greyhounds and Lurchers and, fingers crossed, adopt one!”
