Tallulah, a one-year-old Lurcher sadly came in to the care of our South Lincolnshire centre as a stray.

She didn’t enjoy kennel life when she first arrived with us so we tried to make her feel more settled by letting her share a kennel during the day with a fellow Lurcher, Melvin, for company. Throughout the day we kept a close eye on them to make sure Tallulah was settling okay and they both became very good friends.

Tallulah knew the basics when it came to training but she was nervous of being handled and lacked confidence. So our Centre Trainer and the team worked hard with her and were able to watch her blossom after some one-on-one training. She also spent a few nights on Bed & Breakfast with our Centre Trainer where it was discovered how cheeky Tallulah could be as she enjoyed pinching items from table tops and blankets from the sofa!

Out of the kennels Tallulah was a bouncy, playful girl who loved being in the company of other dogs so she made many friends at the centre. One of her favourite things to do was a game of chase with her fellow furry friends so we knew a home with another dog would make her really happy!

After 11 weeks in our care, we found the perfect family for her, complete with a doggy companion. Tallulah’s new family says: “Tallulah is fantastic, she gets on well with the other dogs and Hazel is her best friend – they even share food bowls! She is adored when out and about and people always ask where she is from. Tallulah is always gentle with our older dog Finn, they even have soft playtime. Both Hazel and Finn are very happy with her and she has blended into the family so well.”

We want to be there for all the dogs like Tallulah that need our help for many more years to come. If you could help us to do this, we, and all of our Jerry Green dogs, would be so grateful.
