Stray dog looking for ‘forever home’ after long stay at Cheshire Dogs’ Home

A former stray being cared for at Cheshire Dogs’ Home is looking for his ‘forever home’.

Staff at Cheshire Dogs’ Home in Grappenhall near Warrington are looking for a forever home for a current long stayer, three-year-old lurcher Sebastian.

Staff and volunteers at the home describe Sebastian as ‘a lovely, happy boy’ who is friendly and loves his walks.

Sebastian is good with other dogs, but he may have a high prey drive, so he wouldn’t be able to share a home with cats or smaller animals. It also means he needs to stay on a lead in any unsecured areas.

He was initially brought into another kennel as a stray before being transferred to Cheshire Dogs’ Home.

Staff at the centre say he needs an active home with no children under 10, where all family members understand that, as a rescue dog, Sebastian would need several successful meets at the Dogs’ Home prior to adoption as well as time to learn to trust his new humans.

He’s strong on the lead so this is also a factor that needs to be borne in mind.

A spokesperson for Cheshire Dogs’ Home said: “Sebastian is a happy, lovely boy looking for his forever home.

“Sebastian is friendly and enjoys his walks. He can be strong on lead sometimes and its something the new owners would need to bare in mind.

“Here at the dogs home he has been able to mix with other dogs and he seems very friendly towards them.

Got something to say on this story? Let us know.

“Being a lurcher he does have a high prey drive so would not be suited to a home with a cat or any small animals, anyone looking to offer him a home would need to be aware of this whilst on walks also and it is highly unlikely that he would be able to go off lead in unsecure areas due to this.

“Sebastian was transferred from another kennel so we do not know if he has ever lived with children, however he could potentially live with children over 10 who will understand he may take a little time to get to know and trust them – subject to a successful meet.”

People interested in meeting Sebastian with a view to adopting him should call Cheshire Dogs’ Home on 0300 102 1212 to make an appointment.
