Four year old greyhound Harley was found wandering in the freezing cold in South Sheilds (Sunderland) last week and is now ready for a home for Christmas.

Harley ... loves brushing.

The Shields Gazette says: “HARLEY the greyhound was left wandering the streets alone after his previous owner gave him the brush-off. The four-year-old lurcher, who loves to be brushed, was found wandering around Temple Park, South Shields, on a freezing cold night earlier this month.

He was taken to West Hall Kennels in Cleadon, and now he’s looking for a new home. Kennels manager Sarah Wilkinson said: “He’s clearly been a racing greyhound, so he can’t be rehomed with any small furry animals like rabbits or cats. But apart from that’s he’d make a fantastic family pet.”

“He’s a gentle, loving, quiet dog. He’ll also only need two short bursts of exercise a day, and the rest of the time he’s no bother at all.”
