About me

Haven’t you heard the phrase ‘Pesto is the besto’? I can definitely vouch for that! My name is Pesto and I’m a beautiful 6 year old greyhound here at the Hertfordshire centre.

I may seem a little shy at first, but don’t be fooled because I quickly warm up to people that show me kindness and may even let you give my chin a little stroke as it’s my favourite!

I walk nicely on the lead and love being outside exploring things. However, I do like knowing my carers here at the centre are always nearby. I like human company, and I’m a real softie at heart! I even have soft toys that I’m particularly fond of playing with here too.

I am looking for a home with adults or families with children as long as they are patient and give me time to settle in at my own pace. I could live with another dog of a similar size to me as long as we get on well here at the centre but I would like a home without cats.
