Sooty arrived on Monday 23rd July 2018
Went to his new home on Sunday 16th September 2018.

DATE OF BIRTH: 05/01/2014
WEIGHT: 34.8 kg
INOCULATED: 23/06/2018

Sooty is a super black male ex-racing greyhound who has a really nice nature and is a real gentleman.
Because he was a big black male he kept being over looked so we we asked if we could help him by bringing him here. He lives in a house so is house trained, is neutered, inoculated and microchipped.
Sooty is super with children and other breeds of dogs, walks nicely on a lead and travels well in a car.

Went to his new home on Sunday 16th September 2018.
 Sooty's Diary
23rd July 2018
Our bed and breakfast guests brought Sooty to us. He had been in the racing kennels waiting his turn to go to a rescue for many, many months and when they discovered it was because he was a big, black male no one wanted him their hearts went out to him because he was such a lovely dog.  Having contacted me they asked if I could help and because we always have at least one big black male here all the time we arranged for them to bring him to us because we'd just homed one.
What a lovely dog he is.  You can tell by his eyes and body language he will make someone a lovely companion.
24th July 2018
This morning Sooty went to the vets to be neutered and he weighed in at 34.6kg.
All went well with his operation and we called in later in the afternoon to collect him and bring him home.
