About me

Hi everyone, my name's Dillon and I'm a beautiful 9 year old Lurcher.

My friends describe me as vibrant, playful, extremely loving and loyal! I'm a really sweet, sensitive soul who will make the most amazing companion for someone! 
I hadn't been previously socialised with other dogs so the team are helping me work on my social skills and have taught me how to wear a muzzle which means I can now go for walks with other dogs in a safe manner and I'm getting on really well with meeting other dogs when out on my walks - I should mention that I absolutely LOVE my food and will do anything for a tasty treat which I'm told makes my training super easy for all my handlers!

My ideal home would be somewhere in a quiet area where I can enjoy lots of chill time with my new family, I have so much love to give and can't wait to spoil my new family with all my affection. I'd love my new home to have a nice secure garden where I have room to run and play with my toys - playing is my favourite pastime! I always keep a teddy in my bed with me to snuggle with!
