Gentle giant's home call

By Marjorie Kerr

Animal welfare experts are appealing for a home for a gentle giant.

Ludo is a four-year-old greyhound who is currently in foster care through Dogs Trust West Calder.

His carers say he is a sweet boy who enjoys the quiet life.

A spokeswoman for Dogs Trust said: “Ludo loves to wander around the garden for a sniff before curling up on his bed for a snooze with a soft, squeaky toy. He is an affectionate dog who likes meeting new people.

“He can’t resist a fuss from his best friends and will lean in for more cuddles.

“Ludo loves food and enjoys playing search and find games with tasty treats.

“He is a nervous boy who needs a patient family who are home throughout the day to help him settle into his new home.

“While he enjoys his walks, he can become worried by new experiences, so prefers to walk in peaceful places where he can set the pace.

“His ideal new home would have an enclosed garden where he can explore and relax off-lead. Ludo is very polite to other dogs he meets on walks and could live with another calm four-legged friend of similar size.

“He is a loving boy who would make an excellent companion for a quiet household.”

If you think you could provide a home for Ludo or any of the 50 dogs currently available for rehoming, please contact West Calder Rehoming Centre on 01506 873459. You can also follow Dogs Trust West Calder on Twitter @DT_WestCalder and Instagram @dogstrust_westcalder for regular updates on dogs available for rehoming.

West Calder Rehoming Centre is currently recruiting volunteers to help with kennel cleaning, laundry, groundskeeping, maintenance and greeting guests in reception. If you are interested in volunteering, please email Volunteer Coordinator Garry Lee at Garry.Lee@dogstrust.org.uk.

The centre is also seeking new foster carers across the whole of the Lothians and the Scottish Borders to join its Home from Home scheme.

If you could open your home to a foster dog or would like to find out more, please email HFHWestCalder@dogstrust.org.uk.
