Scottish SPCA seeks new palace for King the greyhound

King the greyhound

The Scottish SPCA is looking for a new home for King, a greyhound who has been in their care for over 196 days.

Despite a surge in adoptions during lockdown, poor King has yet to abdicate his throne at the Glasgow Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre where he is currently being cared for.

 Anna O’ Donnell, manager of the centre, said: “King is a lovely big cuddle bug who loves his grub, being the centre of attention and being fussed over!

“We just can’t understand why he keeps being overlooked.

“He is a typical greyhound with a high prey drive so he does not like small furry animals, including smaller breeds of dogs. His new owner will need to be understanding of this and willing to keep him on a lead at all times. We would also recommend he wears a basket muzzle during walks.

“He would be best suited to a home with direct access to a secure garden where he can safely stretch his legs off the lead.

“King has spent some time in a house but has mainly lived in kennels previously, so he may need a refresher course in toilet training in his new home!

“He would be best suited to a home with no small animals and older children, if any. He does get along with dogs who are a similar size to him so he could potentially live with a canine companion after a few successful meetings at our centre.

“King is a lovely dog and we have no doubt that he’ll make a brilliant companion for the right person.”
