Lurcher gets 'yappy' ending after nine years in rescue

A bull Lurcher has finally found his happy ending after spending the majority of his life at the National Animal Welfare Trust.

Mole had been a resident at the Cornwall centre in Wheal Alfred Road, Hayle since his was just a six-month-old puppy. Desperately in need of a loving family, the beautiful black dog was overlooked countless times. Timid and shy, Mole struggled to fit into kennel life and was reactive to people and dogs.

But Mole has finally won the hearts of a family and has left for his forever home.

Lucy from the NAWT Cornwall centre said, "We’re delighted Mole has found his forever home; his new owner lives in a quiet area so he won’t see people close up very often.

"Mole has had a good few nights at his new home; his owner heard him having a wander around in the early hours but when she went down to check on him, he just got back on his sofa and went back to sleep.

"Obviously, the longer he was with us, the more stigma gets attached and the harder it is to find a home which is willing to take the time over the transition from kennels to a home. It is a bit strange without him at the centre though!"
