About me

Hello my name is Rafiki and I am 4 years old. I am a handsome chap and with my ear sticking up all the time, I look amazing! I came to the centre as an ex racing greyhound and im now looking for a new start in life. I can be nervous of some new situations, people and dogs, so I would love an owner who has lots of time to spend with me and to help me to be less worried about the world. I am very affectionate and love human company and attention. I am named after the much-loved character in Lion king; did you know that ‘Rafiki’ is translated as ‘friend’? Will you be my new friend? I like to play with toys! Squeaky toys and tennis balls to chase are my favourite! I like to carry my toys around with me and to show them off to you! I walk nicely on a lead too! I am looking for an experienced owner and a home with adults or families who have children aged 12 and above. I would prefer to be the only dog in the home while settling. I would like a home without cats.
