Former Dogs Trust Newbury racing greyhound ready for relocation
THE Reading Chronicle launched its Dog of the Month feature with the help of Dogs Trust Newbury.
Every month we call on dog lovers who plan to adopt a dog and give him the eternal home he has been looking forward to.
This month’s Dog of the Month is four-year-old Greyhound running ex Poppy.

She is a sensitive girl, looking for a quiet home with new, patient owners.
Jenny Hopkins, Deputy Director of the Dogs Trust Newbury Rehoming Center, said: “Poppy is a real sweetheart. Although she finds things a bit overwhelming, she comes out of her shell and befriends her canine guardians – she even begins to enjoy cuddling with her favorite people.
“She is looking for a home with calm and patient new owners who will be willing to do things at her own pace while she finds her bearings. Her new family will have to meet her on several occasions, both at the center and during visits to her new home, to get to know her and to bond.

“Poppy thrives in the company of other dogs, so it would be great for her to have a similarly sized canine companion who can help her settle down. She could also live with children aged 14 and over who will give her the time and space she needs.
If you think you can give Poppy the home she’s looking for forever, go to www.dogstrust.org.uk/rehoming to start the virtual adoption process.
Dogs Trust Newbury runs information days every Sunday. If you would like to tour the center, meet team members and see the dogs spending time with their canine guardians, go to www.dogstrust.org.uk/ourcentres to reserve a spot.
